Sunderland & I Know It...

It's the start of the week, and time to round up all of today's SAFC news in a handy package. Let's face it, it saves you having to do it, so you're welcome.

And today is March 19th, and on this day Willie Mosconi set a world record by running 526 consecutive balls without a miss during a straight pool exhibition at East High Billiard Club in Springfield, Ohio. A record which still stands. Meanwhile in Sunderland, Daniel Edgar made his home debut against Bolton Wanderers. He played left-half for us between 1931-35.

Back to more current matters though, here's what's rocking our world tonight...

The club have issued their own tribute to Fabrice Muamba after the Bolton midfielder suffered a suspected heart-attack during his side's FA Cup game with Tottenham.
