Gareth Barker introduces the latest edition of the Salut! Sunderland podcast created by those fine lads, Gareth and Goldy, in the appropriate guise of Wise Men Say. It’s fair to say we haven’t had the kind of start to the season we had hoped for and Saturday’s visit of Arsenal is the first in a run of tough home fixtures, although in hindsight the run started with Fulham. Is it more doom and gloom? Scroll down, hit the link and find out …

As there was no game to review this week, we set about predicting our fate for the upcoming Premier League encounter with Arsenal. With Wenger finally splashing the cash and bringing in the brilliant Ozil, it gave us even more cause to worry about another possible defeat. I don’t think it’s all doom and gloom, but this week’s pod is tinged with that air of pessimism that seems to sweep in with alarming regularity. Maybe it’s something to do with the sea breeze?

Stephen and I were joined by Michael Graham from the Roker Report in the studio and we were privileged to have Amy Lawrence of the Guardian and Observer on the phone, to give us an Arsenal perspective.

We also hear from Paolo who talks about formations. This man ain’t for changing! Oh, Stephen also talks about a three man midfield. Again.

It’s another 45 minutes of misery, moaning and questionable name pronunciations So sit back, relax and enjoy….. Kind of!
