Apparently not everyone enjoyed the game quite as much as these two, but Gav and Chris have a few bones to pick with Mogga over a few issues - despite finding a lot of positives to take from our performance against Leicester on Tuesday night - and look ahead to the Lads return to the Stadium of Light as we take on Norwich on Saturday!

RRP: "A big hot chat" Analysing all the SAFC transfer business & Sunderland 5-0 Southampton!

Roker Rapport Podcast: “Once more unto the breach, lads & lasses” Preston v Sunderland Preview!
