Sunderland vs. Cardiff City has taken place seven times……………

The schedule of our games so far this season has been strange. We’re set to play three teams at home (QPR, Sheffield Wednesday, and Rotherham), who were likely the three teams most predicted by analysts to fall from the standings in May, in our first five games.It’s safe to assume that we could have had a more challenging start to our season at Cardiff City Stadium if you factor in winless Swansea and a Coventry team still searching for their second victory of the year.

The away start from hell, in contrast, is what we are currently experiencing!
On Sunday, we make our longest away trip of the season to face a Sunderland team that reached the Play Offs last season and is likely the form team in the division following three straight victories gained with a goals tally of 11-2 in their favor. Sunderland is the division’s preseason favorite for the title and was tipped to finish in the top six along with Leicester, Leeds, and Ipswich.

According to what we’ve seen so far, City will be very competitive, just as they were against Leicester and Ipswich (funny, the one game we didn’t lose was at Leeds, where we likely played the worst we’ve ever played on the road). Realistically though, we’ll have to wait a little longer for our first league success away from home. Nevertheless, we shouldn’t forget about the very stunning League Cup victory by a virtually second team against previously unbeaten Birmingham.

Seven questions about Sunderland that date back to the 1960s are provided here; on Monday, the answers will be given.

a dozen years later) and established himself as one of their regulars.

He mostly remained active in the game as an assistant manager after retiring, but when he was appointed manager on a temporary basis at another northern club, he performed so admirably in leading them out of what had been a relegation battle before he took over that he more or less had to be given the job on a full-time basis. But when he was fired after just five games of the new season, it seemed more likely that he was merely keeping the seat warm for someone else.

He represented his nation more than thirty times abroad and was

Who am I referring to, who was twice employed as the manager’s assistant during a World Cup Finals competition?

70s. The fact that this attacker from Lancashire spent three seasons with his hometown club throughout a career in which he played for a dozen other teams suggests that the pull of home was always strong. Sunderland were interested after the first of those three home stays, and he was quickly signed as an adolescent by them. Over the course of two seasons, he established himself as a relatively consistent starter in the Second Division for the Roker Park team with a respectable, if not outstanding, goal-scoring record. His subsequent transfer placed him in the First Division as a replacement.

In other countries, he played more.

80s. To me, that sounds rude and dull!

00s. When he was younger, this defender was breaking records for his country (it only lasted for one match), but his club career was unremarkable in comparison. During this decade, he made a losing appearance for Sunderland against City before experiencing what may have been a first: He was loaned to the same team three times in a row without a permanent transfer.
Instead, he left for one of our rivals before finally signing with the team he had been frequently loaned to, five years after his previous brief stay there.

Before retiring from the game at age 29, he made his sixth loan move of his career to a shoe manufacturer, which served as painful proof of his early potential failing to materialize. He is who?

10s. He was capped by England at the age of twenty, broke a streak of 1,370 days without winning a Premier League game in which he had started the game, and is now playing in Australia – who? He was something of a lingering presence in the background of the very watchable Sunderland documentary series from a few years back.
