RRP: The French Connection - Previewing Fulham v Sunderland, a listener Q&A and SAFC Transfers!

Gav and Chris sat down to attempt to preview our upcoming FA Cup fixture with Fulham at Craven Cottage, but halfway through they went off on a bit of a tangent about how much they love the club, the arrival of Pierre Ekwah, the highly likely (may be confirmed by the time you listen) SAFC signing of Leeds youngster Joe Gelhardt, our links with Isaac Lihadji, a new link with Nottingham Forest youngster Ateef Konaté and then spend a good half hour answering/debating listener questions!

What's the crack?

  • Gav is looking forward to Fulham, Chris is not looking forward to Fulham. Aye.

  • Do we think this is a free hit for both sides or is it actually far more important to both than they would perhaps admit?

  • What sort of side is Tony Mowbray likely to put out, and will its strength be a sign of how seriously he's taking the competition?

  • Is this one of the most exciting transfer windows in recent Sunderland memory? Is Kyril shipping French lads in by the dozen? Do we care if we know who any of these lads are?

  • Welcome Pierre Ekwah! Would the lads throw him straight in this Saturday?

  • Is losing Corry Evans a serious issue with some of the options we have available already?

  • Should Kristjaan Speakman be praised slightly more for the revolution he's overseen at the club since his arrival?

  • All this and much, much more!

Been plenty more SAFC news since this was recorded; Corry Evans is out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury, Leon Dajaku is off on loan to Swiss side FC St. Gallen, and Sky News are reporting the imminent arrival of Joe Gelhardt! So we'll be recording another reaction to all this news soon aye...

Updates: Isaac Lihadji has signed for Sunderland! Announced by SAFC at 8pm 26/01/23

Joe "Joffy" Gelhardt has signed for Sunderland! Announced by SAFC at 2pm 27/01/23

Ha'way the Lads! Vive la révolution!
