This is our SAFC Forum of course. You may chat about Sunderland AFC here together with any other footballing matters. Obviously, the Black Cats are the main focus. However, this is basically our football lounge.

Sunderland v Birmingham City Game - 22/12/2017

English Championship - Stadium of Light - 3pm kick-off - Referee: Oliver Langford

Here is the team news for today's Match:

Sunderland Starting XI: Ruiter, Love, Browning, O'Shea, Wilson, Matthews, Gooch, Gibson, Honeyman, Grabban, Vaughan.
Sunderland substitutes: Steele, Asoro, Maja, McGeady, McManaman, Ndong, Oviedo.
Manager: Chris Coleman

Birmingham City starting XI: Stockdale; Colin, Morrison, Dean, Grounds; Kieftenbeld, Ndoye, Gardner, Jota, Boga; Gallagher
Birmingham City substitutes: Davis, Maghoma, Jutkiewicz, Trueman, Nsue, Bramall, Gleeson
Manager: Steve Cotterill

To begin with, well done to the lads at Sunderland for winning their first league game at the Stadium of Light in 364 days :D
Obviously, this gave the supporters some relief and should put a little confidence back into the lads as well.

Sunderland have much more discipline since Chris Coleman came in and have kept three clean sheets in this short period. With Birmingham City being bottom of the league, the Black Cats will be hoping to capitalise. Finally, Lee Cattermole is out through injury.

Haway the lads :red-white:
What was that you said again?

Oh my word, what was all that about. Birmingham are going to defend this lead. Luckily it come early on so we have stacks of time to get back in it.
