The Roker Roundup: February 13th 2012 - Sess Wants To Stay & Knott's Loan Extended

Your evening news from the world of SAFC.
Your evening news from the world of SAFC.

Back once again like renegade masters, it's The Roker Roundup to bring you up to speed on all things Sunderland AFC which happened or were of interest today. However with today being a Monday edition, there's a few bits and bobs from the weekend too.

So for the 13th of February, a day in history when not a great deal happened to be honest. In 1970 Black Sabbath released their debut album, and it's Pierluigi Collina's 52nd birthday.

Well, let's see what's happening in our world tonight...

We've all been a bit worried about Stephane Sessegnon's future at the club, but he's given an interview in L'Equipe which should drag a few away from the ledge. In short, he's said he's adapted to English life and feels completely settled after a period of feeling down, he likes Martin O'Neill, and says you lot (the fans) are amazing. Don't just take our word for it, have a read yourself - CLICK HERE

From one potential club legend to one who is firmly established in that role, Jimmy Montgomery has been announced as the first ever "club ambassador"... I'm not sure what that exactly entails on a day-to-day basis, but I'm sure if anyone was going to be an ambassador for the club, Monty is a fine choice - CLICK HERE

Thierry Henry's been very nice about us. So he should be, we (for some reason) applauded him on to the pitch at the weekend against Arsenal. Read what he had to say - CLICK HERE

Youngster Billy Knott has been impressing everyone at AFC Wimbledon, and has had his loan move extended for a further month. Best of luck to him, and here's hoping League Two action has toughened him up for a first team push next season - CLICK HERE

Stand-in captain, John O'Shea, has been talking about the very same game too. In short he thinks that we should have had a penalty for Per Mertesacker's basketball skills, and he wants revenge in the forthcoming cup tie. Fair play I suppose - CLICK HERE

Ex-SAFC manager Mick McCarthy was sacked by Wolves today too. Shame, he's an absolutely cracking bloke. On the plus side it might free him up for some more of his wonderfully blunt co-commentary. The massive downside is that there's now a chance for fellow ex-manager Steve Bruce to return to the Premier League. Surely Wolves won't be so silly.

That said, Big Mick's now free on Valentines Day so look out ladies...
