Roker Rapport Cirkincast: The Sunderland 2-1 Wigan Review - F*** the Refs Edition!

Gav, Phil and Martin got together to react to a return to winning ways for Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, as a Dennis Cirkin header took all three points from Wigan Athletic!

What’s the crack?

  • It’s nice to win again isn’t it; so how do the lads feel?
  • A bit of a rough start as Wigan took to breaking up play, hitting long balls and time wasting - were we worried going into the second half after that strangely inevitable Wyke goal against the run of play;
  • The referee and officials once again let themselves down as we were denied a great goal; are they plain daft or just horrifically incompetent?
  • What a second half performance; after a change in personnel and a tweak to the formation the Lads absolutely tore up the pitch - would love to be a fly on the wall for those Mogga team talks.
  • EMBOOOOOOOOOO; The breakthrough finally came - that the ref let us have anyway - when the ball dropped to Embleton in the box and he didn’t disappoint!
  • DENNIS F***IN CIRKIN; What a way to return from injury with a fantastic performance and a winning goal guest of honour Niall Quinn would’ve been proud of!
  • PATRICK ROBERTS; an inspirational performance from the lad!
  • All this and more! Ha'way the Lads!
