A couple of responses from Oxford fans ahead of Sunderland’s opening game hardly counts as a storming start to the labour-saving device of inviting opposing fans to send their thoughts on forthcoming matches between our clubs.
But let’s persevere, says Monsieur Salut. We’ve had good Ipswich Town Q+A interviews in the past and must hope a few Tractor Boys (or girls) feel inclined to answer one or more, or indeed all, of the questions below.
If this lazy version of our superb Who are You? series works, there’ll be the usual prizes at the end of the season for the best interviews. We’ll see …
Salut! Sunderland: 1: we had a dodgy penalty, you had a deflected shot. But you won away and we drew at home. Looking good for a quick return to the Championship?
2: Paul Lambert has a good record in another part of East Anglia. What do you make of him now that he’s yours?
3: maybe too early to be sure but who may be crucial among your squad to your hopes this season?
4: your own best and worst experiences of following Ipswich?
5: your thoughts on Sunderland – the club, the fans, the area etc?
6: hand on heart: where will our two clubs finish this season?
7: will you be at the match? What will be the score?
