Here we go. This is the provisional list of Sunderland fixtures for the 2014-2015 season, with the usual health warning about the havoc TV moguls and chief constables can and will play with dates and times.

We start with the pre-season friendlies so far arranged: Darlington 1883 on Sat July 19, Carlisle United on Tues July 22 and Hartlepool United on Wed July 23. They’re all away but do not, at first sight, constitute an overseas jolly of the sort to appeal to Messrs Sixsmith and Horan.

As for the Premier games, West Brom away is not the worst start we could have been handed. The first home game against Man Utd is tough but remember that last season, the opening eight at the Stadium of Light included Arsenal, Liverpool, Man Utd, Man City, Spurs and Chelsea.

If we need points – at the bottom or, dare I say it, the top – on the last day of the season, Stamford Bridge is the place we’ll have to get them.

  1. As I predicted in the ‘way it is’ section ,once again we’ve been given a promoted side away in their early fixtures ;in fact two.This stretches credibility that it’s mere coincidence.I’m surprised it’s not been picked up on over the years.

  2. Please, please – surely not desperate for points on the last day … the season hasn’t even kicked off… ah well, guess we have to be prepared for anything
