The Roker Roundup: April 26th 2012 - Duo Out For Season, Spanish Keeper Linked

The News Has Turned, And Left Me Here
The News Has Turned, And Left Me Here

We're nearly there people, don't worry. The weekend will be upon us before you know it. To brighten up your Thursday evening though, we've got a Roker Roundup for you. All today's SAFC news in a handy little bundle.

Today being the 26th of April, you'll find that on this day in history we played, and beat Birmingham 2-0 in 1930. Around 10,000 people at Roker Park saw Albert Wood hit the net, and Billy Clunas convert a penalty.

Anyway, here's today's big SAFC news, and the not so big...

It's bad news to start the news off as it turns out Kieran Richardson and Sebastian Larsson will both miss the rest of the season due to surgery. The pair had been playing through the pain, but this should open the door for Wayne Bridge and Ahmed Elmohamady to prove they're worth keeping around as the season comes to a close - CLICK HERE

Craig Gardner looks like he's gotten over the homesickness bug and wants to be kept around at the Stadium Of Light next season amidst interest from West Brom. He's also perhaps surprisingly to some, happy with his form and thinks he's playing good football. Room for improvement I'd say - CLICK HERE

Remember triallist Alieu Darbo? Well he's signed for Wigan after they "beat" ourselves and Newcastle to his signature. Seems more like they were the only one who wanted him to me - CLICK HERE

The SAFC Foundation is now known as the Foundation Of Light, as it seems everything has to be the something "Of Light" around the club. If you want more details - CLICK HERE

Blair Adams, currently away on loan at Northampton Town has said he has no idea where his future lies at the moment, but if he is to leave SAFC, wouldn't mind another crack at Northampton - CLICK HERE

A very short report on the always 100% nailed on correct Tribal Football links us with a move for Racing Santander's 32-year old out of contract keeper "Tono"... Nope, I've not heard of him either, but it's interesting as he's a) Free and b) Not a striker - CLICK HERE

Finally, Paul Bracewell, someone I'd consider a friend of this site after a cracking interview and being a top fella, has spoken of his love of Stephane Sessegnon. He thinks the Benin forward is one of the best players plying their trade in the Premier League at the moment - CLICK HERE
