Roker Rapport Podcast: NTT20’s George Elek previews Sunderland v Oxford with us!

Rich was joined by NTT20 Pod original, EFL pundit and Oxford United fan - George Elek - to look ahead to Saturday’s meeting between SAFC and the OUFC at the Stadium of Light, and to look across the division so far this season!

What’s the crack?

  • How is George doing these days? (Between slipping in and out of the Sky and Quest studios of course)
  • How are Oxford looking; Has Karl Robinson weathered another short storm, and how is their ownership situation? Sounds a little complicated at the moment but is George confident everything will turn out... just fine?
  • George gives his thoughts on the Sunderland dip in form after our initial strong start, and how we looked in his opinion in our wins over Ipswich and Cambridge;
  • Who’s looking strong for Oxford at the moment, and how confident is George of a result against us?
  • The Independent Fan-Led Review of Football Governance - What are George’s thoughts on the issues that were raised, the findings and recommendations and how some owners higher up the Pyramid have reacted to the whole thing?
  • Lee Johnson; Is he performing as expected, and are the other sides in League One this year - and their respective managers looking for promotion - underperforming? Or is it too early/unfair to say given the level of the league this season?
  • All this and much more!
