Fan Letters: More excited Sunderland supporters laughing at Joey Barton... and Lewis Grabban

People seem to be feeling pride and passion about being Sunderland supporters again - and even despite our own recent plight, we’ve got the time to laugh at others! Got something to say? Email us: - we’ll include your message in a future edition.

Dear Roker Report,

Unbelievable. The thug and recognized clown Joey Barton has another pop at Sunderland, and the herd up the road erupt in fits of laughter at his dynamic wit.

This is a bloke who has always thought of himself as some kind of academic giant. I bet his appearance on Question Time was not on the agenda at his job interview - he fell further than Alan Shearer being poleaxed by Roy Keane. He was completely and utterly out of his depth.

Hold tight lads, we WILL have the last laugh on Moron Barton and his horse punching followers. This is a new dawn for us. It seems to have gone all stagnant (again), up the road.


Ed’s Note [Gav]: It’ll certainly add some spice to the occasion when we do cross paths with him again. Barton’s had such an enormous chip on his shoulder for years now and he still can’t let that Newcastle thing go, even despite the fact they f*cked him off ages ago.

Dear Roker Report,

I can’t wait for the season to start. We’ve got new owners with a vision and a young manager who is hungry for success - I sense good times ahead.

At last the wholesale changes have started - Robbie Stockdale is gone and hopefully the p*ss-taking players that have taken us fans for mugs for years will soon follow.

Jack Ross believes in giving young players a chance - I honestly believe he is going to be one of Sunderland’s best managers in years. At least the mood around the club is changing for the better - it could be worse, just look at the state of Aston Villa.

Who’s laughing now, Mr Grabban?!

Bring the new season on.

Ed’s Note [Gav]: It’s definitely time to look forward and not backward. We need to try and get rid of everything negative and forget our past as soon as we possibly can - that way a wholesale change in mentality and focus is possible. We need to start attaching ourselves to what it was that made us Sunderland fans in the first place - passion, hard work and excitement. We’ve been deprived of that for years and now we finally have a chance to make our supporters happy.
