Ahoy there munchkins, it's time for another installment of The Roker Roundup. We've been reading the news so you don't have to bother.

So today is April 2nd 2012. However on this day in history you'll find that Clarence Gregory made his Sunderland debut away at Tottenham. Elsewhere around the world, in 1982 Argentina invaded the Falklands, and in 2005 Pope John Paul II died.

However, it's time we got down to business and brought you the Sunderland news from today, so here it is...

The fans network "Football Fan Cast" has written a short list of the 15 best bargains to be had around the Premier League this summer. Several familiar names, but you'll also see current loanee Wayne Bridge on the list too, showing just how far his stock has risen of late - CLICK HERE

Matt Kilgallon has spoken of his delight at life under Martin O'Neill, having been frozen out by previous boss Steve Bruce. Killa has been in the main very reliable when called upon - CLICK HERE

Martin O'Neill says he hasn't thought about what we're going to do in the summer with Nicklas Bendtner. He's not spoken to him yet, and doesn't want to, but it will be looked at in the summer - CLICK HERE

Bendtner also hit the town to celebrate the side's magnificent 3-3 draw with Manchester City. Not as booze-addled as he looked the other week out in Newcastle, but if he's happy, that's alright with me. Just don't go doing a Titus Bramble on anyone - CLICK HERE

Hailing back to that 3-3 draw at the Etihad Stadium, mis-firing Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko has told of how the Blues underestimated our side - CLICK HERE

Sunderland's commercial director, Gary Hutchinson has been nominated as a Rising Star at the forthcoming Stadium Business Awards. Good luck to him - CLICK HERE

Apparently we, along with several other Premier League sides are keeping an eye on Grasshopper fullback Bruno Bertucci. Nope, I've never heard of him either, but he doesn't sound like a 'typical' Martin O'Neill signing to be perfectly honest - CLICK HERE
