RRP: "O manager, where art thou?" - SAFC 23/24 Season Review Part One!

5/17/2024
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? Ha'way the Lads! #SAFC #EFL #EFLChampionship Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

RRP: "Wish you weren't here" - Sunderland AFC 0-1 Millwall Reaction and Listener Q&A!

4/22/2024
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 to win games at home. Did anyone try to win that game for us? Mike Dodds once again laid the blame at the players feet and doesn't think it's on Mike Dodds but is that fair in this case? Shouldn't he be shouldering responsibility for team selection and tactics? The lads try once again to address the issues at hand and look at the backroom as well as the head coach; should they be cleared out too when summer finally arrives? Answering your questions and more! Aye, just get to the summer aye. #SAFC #EFL #EFLChampionship Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

RRP: "Doddsfall - The Trilogy" - Combined SAFC reaction to the Swansea, Norwich & Leicester defeats!

3/14/2024
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? #EFL #EFLChampionship #SAFC Hosted on Acast.

RRP: "Cockney Revels" - Reaction to Sunderland 3-1 Stoke City & everything else SAFC!

1/28/2024
The lads got together to chew the fat about our win against Stoke on Saturday and all the mayhem surrounding the club as we approach the end of the January window! Apples, pears, Pritchards and cockney stuff. Bosh. What's the crack? WE WON. Doesn't that feel a bit better? Well played Mason; Young Burstow had one of his best performances, if not the best so far, in a Sunderland shirt. Congratulations to the lad for getting his first goal for the club! Alex Pritchard apparently plain refused to pull on his shirt this weekend. The lads debate how reasonable this is given his seniority and responsibilities and judge the fan reaction they've seen so far to the news. ABDOULLAH! The lad comes good again! Take a bow; Pierre Ekwah found the net again also! What did we make of the performance overall - does it look like we're starting to see any significant changes? How are Gav and Martin (who had no strong feelings on Michael Beale's arrival) feeling about the microanalysis of pressers and interviews; Beale got in trouble for calling out personal insults (when asked about them) and got himself in more bother trying to explain what he meant. Could he have handled that a bit better? Did the following wave of clickbait bullshit from impossible to navigate sites built by Satan's minions help matters? Would the Alex Neil approach to journalists work better for him or should he ask the group what their favourite chocolates are? RAWA meeting minutes and Speakman speaks; so did we learn anything new? How we feeling about the approaching end of the window? Nervous? Relaxed? Wanting a signing or three? All this and more! Ha'way the Lads! #SAFC #EFLChampionship #EFL Hosted on Acast.
