Oui oui, we are not dropping the ridiculous accents or French puns yet. Monsieurs Gav and Chris return to drink wine and talk all things RLB, SAFC and more ahead of our Spanish double header this weekend!  What's the crack?  Regis lad; How is our new head coach settling in? Gav was over Shields on Saturday, so what did he make of the game?  Early recruitment seems to have focused on keepers and also strengthening the midfield, both areas getting the experience we asked for, so are the lads happy with it so far?  How significant a signing could Alan Browne be?&nb ..read more

Mon dieu! Sacré bleu! Sunderland AFC have a head coach, as Kyril has exploited his French connection and appointed a French lad! Gav and Martin got together today to react to it all, trying to avoid lazy stereotypes and occasionally failing.  What's le crack?  Welcome Reg! He hasn't actually arrived at the academy yet but he'll be there imminently.  So has everyone calmed down a bit? It's been a bit of a month for a few, so does this settle the nerves ahead of preseason?  Who is Régis Le Bris? The French footy analysts and pundits seem to think highly of him;  ..read more

RRP: "Players only love you when they're playing" - SAFC 23/24 Season Review Part Two!

Our disorganised (and now slightly late) season review continues as we all await imminent news from our dear club about our imminent head coach. But we aren't talking about managers at all here (we'll react to that when we get an official announcement) as today our Gav, Chris and Martin's focus is on the players themselves. What's the crack?  Now the lads are away on their hols and with plenty of time to reflect, who do we think stood out in the past season? Besides Jack Clarke aye.. The lads try to sell Patto for a giggle; but how do we feel about the goalkeeping situation? Is Youn ..read more

Aye lads and lasses we threw the towel in early as Dodds and the club drove us a bit insane. Following medical advice we've all had a bit of a break and now we're back to dissect everything in a really disorganised and chaotic fashion, as our Gav is joined by Chris Wynn and Martin Wanless to attempt something resembling a season review for a season Sunderland AFC itself abandoned.  What's the crack?  That season was shit aye. So how is everyone?  Appointment announcement incoming? That's a genuine question like we have no clue if it's coming or not.  Mogga, Micky a ..read more

Our Gav and Martin return to react to the increasingly painful and unfortunately still ongoing shite run/limp to the end of our season, following possibly the dullest game we've ever witnessed. Luckily they have some listener questions to try distract them from the football itself.  What's the crack?  Was that the most boring game we've seen this season/decade/century?  Can we end the season now? Editors note/answer: Yes. Yes we can. If Mike Dodds wants a career in management Mike Dodds might like to consider thinking about what Mike Dodds really has to lose by trying t ..read more

Our Gav Henderson welcomes Martin Wanless back to the pod as the lads look back on Sunderland's goalless draw against Bristol City at the Stadium of Light yesterday, ahead to Tuesday night against Leeds at Elland Road, and grab a few listener thoughts on all things SAFC!  What's the crack?  It wasn't a win - we couldn't get the ball to go in - but was it better?  A far improved performance from Pierre Ekwah yesterday; Martin thinks he needs to get a bit of consistency going ahead of potential competition arriving for his place in that midfield.  The lads just don't ..read more

Our Martin and Chris had the good sense to fuck off on holiday for Easter so Gavin grabbed our heavy loss specialist, Craig Chapman, to see if they could ignore talking about any of the football from the win on Good Friday over Cardiff or the horrific loss yesterday to Blackburn!  What's the crack?  Those Good Friday vibes didn't continue, the lads would've talked about them but why bother?  Argh why us argh etc  Dodds was a mistake. A terrible, terrible mistake aye.  Would Heckingbottom be a good appointment and if so, would it be better to get him in now ..read more

So we stopped a cycle of losing before heading into what is a very welcome international break for most, as Sunlun held QPR to a draw at the weekend. Join Gav and Martin as they try to talk about it all.. and end up talking about everything but the game. What’s the crack? Our worst losing streak in a decade comes to an end, but we didn’t make it easy on ourselves; what did the lads make of it all? Nice quick minute or so spent on the game itself here. We got a clean sheet! Just the one for now but it’s good news? It is isn’t it? Tell me it is please I need something. Can we build on t ..read more

Seriously though we are actually back, as Gav and Chris sat down late last night to look at the Southampton result and ahead to QPR!  What's the crack?  BREAKING NEWS: WE'RE STILL SHITE It wasn't exactly an inspirational performance against Southampton but at least we got a couple goals aye?  Stop overthinking it Mike; the lads try to explain to Dodds where he might be going wrong...  Defensive injury woes continue to j ..read more

Personal circumstances we don't really need to go on about online have unfortunately put the pods back a couple weeks, so in the interest of continuity/torture/sadism this is a combination of three recordings made after our defeats at home to Swansea, Norwich City and Leicester City… running back to back.  This isn't something we'd necessarily advise you listen to, especially if you're feeling a bit low, but if that's your thing then we won't judge. Enjoy the descent into madness or switch to the Southampton reaction and QPR preview that's just gone up. What's the crack?  The fir ..read more
