Roker Rapport Podcast: The O’Rourke Review - Chatting all things SAFC with ITV’s Simon O’Rourke!

Chris caught up with our old friend Simon for the first time since December 2019 (Aye) to go over what’s been occurring at Sunderland since we spoke last, looking at the start to the new season, the differences between Parky and Lee Johnson, and the end of the new recruitment teams first full summer window!

What’s the crack?

  • So.. How exactly has Simon been since last we spoke?
  • A lot of changes have been made at the club since that particular Boxing Day; How happy is Simon now compared to how he felt (about football anyway) at the time?
  • Recruitment and planning; What does Simon think of the way the club has approached the transfer window?
  • Kyril Louis-Dreyfus; What does Simon make of the new owner so far?
  • Promotion shouts; Are we looking strong enough for a push? How positive can we be right now?
  • End of season clearances; How necessary was it to clear the decks at the club?
  • Dan Neil; How good is the lad? The messiah maybe?
