SAFC Player Of The Season
SAFCBlog Unsocial Isolation Media Awards
Lockdown continues, it’s boring – but it’s essential. It’s frustrating at times, but needs must. I’d just void the season, of course it’s not fair, but just think back to the turn of the year – and then think about how things are now – it’s bonkers, it really is. I love football, it’s depressing that it’ll probably be 2021 til we can attend games – totally new territory, but just scrap the season I say?
SAFC Player of the Season
Jon McLaughlin won last seasons inaugural SAFCBlog ‘Player Of The Season Award’, he was brilliant – the fact we drew most weeks and our keeper was our best player perhaps tells it’s own tale.
An amazing stat from last season was that Big Jon became the first ever keeper to save a penalty at the SOL…… the first penalty save in a Sunderland home game since Tony Norman denied Graham Roberts at Roker Park!
Onto this season…….
Pre season expectations are always high and it’s a fresh start for everyone. McNulty arrived from Coventry full of promise, Grigg must be better this season, McGeady will terrorise defences now he’s not got a sore foot.. safe to say none of these 3 are in the running?
Not for the first time in recent seasons, there is no stand out contender. Whilst this can mean, there’s so many outstanding candidates, equally it can also mean, no one has been particularly good!
Memories of Fulham Away..
About 5 or 6 years ago, (the 4-1 game), we jumped in cab having got lost looking for the ground. Typical London Cabbie, massive Spurs fan etc – he asked, ‘who’s your star player?’, we didn’t have an answer and ended up saying Mannone was decent. If only we’d know that AJ would fire a hat trick that day
Strange season in lots of ways, didn’t finish, change of gaffer, lots of false dawns, (ie Willis/Lynch looked the answer, then it was Willis/Wright, then Flanagan re-emerged etc)
Thought about doing it as Twitter Poll, but decided against it
- I don’t know how to do this
- I vote in every Twitter Poll I see, I just can’t help myself
So, nominations to email@example.com
The shortlist is as follows;

@RokerReport @ALS_Fanzine @knittingaway A good read. I guess they are delaying them because they can – as you suggest – they won’t be pretty! I have always had 100% mistrust of them as owners…
