Transfer inactivity has Sunderland supporters growing impatient

Sunderland fans are hoping to hear some good news soon in regards to the club's transfer dealings.
Sunderland fans are hoping to hear some good news soon in regards to the club's transfer dealings.

Sunderland's official club website used to offer a series called "rumour mill" which helpfully pulled together all the newspaper, broadcast and online speculation about potential ins and outs.

There was no hint of how accurate any report might be, and most of us know from experience how much doubt to apply to the bulk of the gossip.

It was still an interesting if rarely dependable guide for supporters, but there was also a suspicion of hypocrisy and this probably led to the feature's demise. After...

Sunderland in search of a scorer this summer

After scoring just 31 goals in 2014-15, Jermaine Defoe and the Sunderland strike force will need to be shored up this summer.
After scoring just 31 goals in 2014-15, Jermaine Defoe and the Sunderland strike force will need to be shored up this summer.

Mischievous grins lit up the faces of a few Sunderland supporters when the official club site confirmed that the Ladies' team has signed Stephanie Roche, the Irishwoman who came second in last year's FIFA Puskas award for goal of the season.

Is manager Dick Advocaat already having quiet words with Carlton Fairweather, the women's team coach to extend Roche's duties to showing his own strikers how to shoot?

Roche's superb goal for Peamount against Wexford Youths, two neat touches and then a...

There's still room for Wes Brown and John O'Shea in Sunderland's defence

Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat admits his side needs a major overhaul.

When Sunderland's list of retained players was published this week, it showed former Manchester United and England defender Wes Brown as available on a free transfer. Almost immediately, and in at least one case beforehand, local media outlets in the Northeast of England reported that far from being intent on discarding Brown, Dick Advocaat wanted to pin him down to a one-year deal.

It may not be the most exciting decision to be made by Advocaat, along with Sunderland's sporting ditector Lee Congerton,...

Sunderland and Dick Advocaat must look beyond 2015-16 season

Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat admits his side needs a major overhaul and says he will make his decision whether to stay at the club or not 'as soon as possible'.

The one-year deal that takes Dick Advocaat back to Sunderland delivers an early close-season fillip to supporters of a club desperate to break free from a continuous cycle of Premier League struggle. Advocaat will pass 68 before next season is more than a few matches old, but has never looked the type to settle for the Dutch equivalent of a quiet pipes-and-slippers retirement.

All the same, after his tears of relief, pride and joy at Sunderland's third successive great escape from relegation had...

Sean Dyche linked with Sunderland but fans remain underwhelmed

Dick Advocaat, speaking before choosing not to stay on at Sunderland, says the club need an overhaul.

Experience teaches wise supporters to take speculation about transfers and management changes with a lorry-load of salt.

Sunderland fans, then, should treat reports that Burnley manager Sean Dyche is favourite to take over with caution.

Sometimes, the rumours are spot on. Fans knew for weeks about Martin O'Neill's successful pursuit of striker Steven Fletcher, then at Wolves, in the summer of 2012. The sale of Jordan Henderson to Liverpool a year earlier, for a fee estimated between £16 and...

Advocaat's exit leaves Sunderland dealing with uncertainty yet again

Dick Advocaat was immensely popular during his stay at Sunderland and the club now finds itself scrambling for his replacement.

Few people could quarrel with Dick Advocaat's his decision to turn down the chance to remain in charge of Sunderland, having rescued the club from a ruinous descent into the Championship.

Last week's tears, after watching his players hold off Arsenal in a 0-0 draw at the Emirates to claim the point needed for Premier League survival, were real enough.

Advocaat was genuinely touched by the affection he had won at the Stadium of Light and proud of having kept his record, arguably against the odds,...
