Ahead of this weekend's big match between two sleeping giants of the EFL Championship, I was invited to have a chat with Graham from the Roker Report, to preview the action.
Topics up for discussion were:
- Sunderland's struggles since relegation to the Championship, and how they can learn from Forest's travails over the last twenty years
- The secrets to success in the Championship, and whether either Mark Warburton or Chris Coleman have the tools to crack the code (including a mention for Billy Davies' better qualities)
- Player rebellions: do Sunderland have the same problems as Forest had under Gary Megson?
- Daryl Murphy and David Vaughan - can they make an impression against their former club?
- The balance of youth and experience in both teams, including a mention for Barrie McKay and Jason Cummings
You can catch the podcast via the Roker Report website - do give it a listen!
