Well it's here everyone, the final Roker Roundup of the season. But where will you get your news? Well we're going to publish it on the site over the summer as articles if we think there's anything worth talking about, so you'll find Roker Report still the No.1 place for all things SAFC.

Today's trivia then, for May the 11th, how's this for an omen? On this very day in 1968, we defeated Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford, Curiosuly and coincidentally that result denied the Reds the title, which was eventually won by Manchester City. Spooky!

Back to today though, let's crack on with the news...

Craig Gordon might be on his way out of the club, but he has scooped up a major accolade in winning the Premier League's Award for greatest ever save in the 20 years of it's existence. The save in question being his wonder stop against Bolton the other year - CLICK HERE
