Sunderland vs Oxford United: the sound of silence

Jake: let’s get off to a winning start


Well that went down well.
Our cheeky attempt to draw some thoughts from Oxford United supporters ahead of Saturday’s opening League One game at the Stadium of Light, fell on deaf ears.

Charlie Methven, Sunderland executive director but also a fervent Oxford United fan, has spoken on these pages of the passion his fellow supporters feel for their club. So we will give it one more try. If you support Oxford and feel like answering one or more of the questions below, just post a comment and specify the number/s of the question/s (one to seven) to which you are responding …

Salut! Sunderland: 1 if you support Oxford United, were you modestly satisfied with a respectable 12th top finish last season? What must (and can feasibly) be done to improve on that?

2 What is the legacy of Stewart Donald and how are he and Charlie Methven, ours for now but lifelong Oxford supporters, viewed by your fans?

3 Who are you looking to among your squad to produce game-changing performances?

4 Tell us what it means to you to be an Oxford United supporter and not succumb to glory-seeking temptations to follow big clubs?

5 What did you make of Sunderland last season? Did our late stumble surprise you or did you see it coming?

6 Hand on heart, where will our two clubs finish this season?

7 Will you get to this game? What will be the score?
