Roker Round Up

Just in case you missed any of our great features this week, here's a list of what we did. There's a whole lot more to come too!

On Monday morning, we rounded off the coverage of the Wear-Tyne derby by getting the views of Pete Donaldson, our Fan Focuser who you may also have heard on XFM, The Football Ramble Podcast or even seen on TV in ESPN's "Talk Of The Terrace"....

What followed later that day needs little introduction. Darren Bent's transfer request and subsequent move to Aston Villa. We reacted immediately with this article, where we tried to get to the bottom of just why this happened...

Fringe Benefits
