Salut! Sunderland‘s daily newspaper of choice, when not in France, is The Guardian, just as its preferred Sunday read is The Observer. It would love there to be a whole day without Graun suits warning of cutbacks and crisis (OK, that’s an exaggeration; a whole month would be fairer.).
But for now, let us just repeat one or two of the questions posed in today’s Guardian on a subject close to our hearts: Kevin Phillips.
It would be wrong to reproduce the whole quiz – not that such an impediment would put off every website we could think of – but probably acceptable to offer some of those most readily applicable to Sunderland supporters. Follow the link* to see the quiz in full:
