Rich was joined by our Paul and Paddy to quickly give their thoughts on the action packed draw against Wycombe at Adams Park this afternoon! What's the crack? ROSSCOOOOOOO - Aye he's still class. Pretty crazy game overall, but that equaliser was a bit gutting wasn't it... Are the lads over it yet? Was that a foul on young Patto for the Vokes goal? …
 
Fleetwood bottled playing The Lads this weekend, so we together a daft little podcast about Sunderland cult heroes for ye. Graham, Dave and Brad all piece together their greatest ever Sunderland AFC cult heroes team using the definition - "Every football club has its cult heroes. For one reason or another, these players stand out from the rest, ear…
 
Our Gav, Tom and Ant were kindly invited to watch the match with our friends from the Sunderland Community Soup Kitchen today - as Sunderland took all three points from Portsmouth - and the lads may have had a few beers to wash it all down before recording at Full Time... What's the crack? Streaky who? The lads reflect on the performances and that …
 
Aye we've had a bit of a mad one these past few weeks but the Xtra previews are making a return - starting with previewing tomorrow's game against Pompey with Andy from PO4cast! What's the crack? How are the Fratton Park faithful feeling about their recent form? Hume on the horizon - How would they feel about the signing of young Denver? How are th…
 
Dropped points against Wycombe, Lincoln City and Accrington mean Sunderland have dropped off the pace a little at the summit of League One. Familiar foes Portsmouth are the visitors on Saturday - but can the Lads put in an improved display and bag three much needed points? Things have improved slightly at Pompey, and regular preview guest Hugh from…
 
Fancy a trip back to the immediate aftermath of Saturday’s result? Well this is the Podcast for you lads and lasses... Gav was joined by our Ant and Bomber on Saturday to discuss the result in-depth and chew the fat a bit about what we clearly need - in the lads opinions - this window. What’s the crack? Well that was just incredibly frustrating was…
 
Sigh. More dropped points for Sunderland means anguish is being felt on Wearside, as another late levellers means we draw on the road. Dave Lawrence, Brad Sharp and Accrington fan and Across The Pitch host Tony join to defensive mistakes, if it's a steaky and whether and which signings we feel could aid in our stuttering promotion push. Enjoyed the…
 
With Sunderland, it is never simple. 10 games unbeaten, and then Chris Maguire comes to batter Lee Johnson's door down and leave us in despair - but we must get back on the horse and travel to Accrington looking for three points. To fill us in on Stanley's season so far is much loved returning guest Tony from Accy's Across The Pitch podcast who giv…
 
Our Chris Wynn was joined yesterday by Phil West for the first full review of 2022 - as they looked back (with the glorious benefit of hindsight and further replays) at the Wycombe draw in front of the Sky cameras at the weekend, and looked ahead to the coming games - starting with Lincoln on Tuesday night! What's the crack? So... have the lads rec…
 
Caught your breath yet? What a game that was for the neutral, however, that is something we are not, but all in all, the WTF team are fairly happy. Dave Lawrence, Brad Sharp and - What The Falk original -Jack Shields cosy up with Wycombe fan Jonny King to chat six goals, a big call on Wycombe's second, where we'd like to see the club strengthen and…
 
How about that for an end to the year? A 5-0 win, coupled with a new signing and sitting second in the league. I think we'll take it! However, we face fourth placed Wycombe Wanderers for the second time this season as both clubs look to steal a march on each other in the promotion race. Can we grab our first win at Adams Park? To fill us in on Wyco…
 
Rich was joined by Gav and Martin to look back a bit - as we stand at the midway point of the season - as well as looking forward to our business dealings now the January window is open, and the fixtures we have coming up - including our next opponents this Saturday in Wycombe Wanderers! What's the crack? So December went reasonably well didn't it …
 
Our Rich and Gav got together this morning to react to last night’s fantastic result for Lee Johnson’s Red & White Army, as the Black Cats took the Owls apart with ease to put us back on top of League One! What’s the crack? LOCH NESS DROGBA - A perfect hat-trick for Ross Stewart! Despite the fact we played very well last night, we weren’t actually …
 
There's plenty Christmas cheer at Sunderland right now after a terrific 3-0 win at Doncaster on Monday - but can the Lads double up by beating promotion rivals Sheffield Wednesday? Darren Moore's side are 12 unbeaten, but haven't played a minute of football for three weeks, so we decided to ask James from Wednesday Till I Die podcast to give us the…
 
Our Rich was joined yesterday - whatever day yesterday was - by our Malc and Paddy to go over Sunderland's comfortable win over Donny in front of the Sky cameras, and look ahead a bit to Sheffield Wednesday! What's the crack? F***ing delightful - But how delightful was it exactly? How class is Alex Pritchard? Neil, Embo and Pritch all a shout for M…
 
Three and easy, eh? A dominant Sunderland smashed Doncaster Rovers with ease, and the Lads were back together to run over the really cheery festive win. Regulars Dave Lawrence and Brad Sharp join to chat about Broadhead's injury, Dan Neil's links to the Premier League and the 3-0 win over Donny on Sky. Enjoyed the episode?

Well, we didn't beat Arsenal, but we did ourselves proud. Now - hopefully - it's time to do it all again in Yorkshire. Doncaster are in a heck of mess compared to last time we spoke to Adam from Rovers site IntoTheEmptyNet, so we thought it was best to reconvene to find out the latest with post festive foes. Enjoyed the episode? Follow us at @WhatT…
 
We have smashed the £60,000 target Reidy set us last week for the SCSK fundraiser!

Our Rich was joined immediately after the final whistle on Saturday* to react to the point against Ipswich away in the league, joined by Kevin - one of the newest members of the RR team - all the way from North Carolina in the States! What's the crack? Was that a point gained... or two lost? Nathan Broadhead; That's 5 in 5 for the lad, can we sign …
 
One upon a time, Arsenal away was a annual occasion, but since our fall from grace over the past half a decade, it has become more of an occasion. 5k fans are heading down to get masked up, sanitized and - hopefully - get through the semi-finals for the first time since 2014. And we couldn't allow this rather nice occasion to pass without a special…
 
Oh boy, we've missed those 1-1s, haven't we? No. I suppose not. However, is it a point gained, or a two points dropped in the vital promotion chase? Regulars Dave Lawrence and Brad Sharp join former Sunderland left back Danny Collins to pick apart the talking points from today's draw at Portman Road. Enjoyed the episode? Follow us at @WhatTheFalkPo…

[Excerpt from live broadcast on Twitter Spaces - Friday, 10th December 2021] The lads started the 24 hour Twitter Spaces Marathon with a bang last Friday - as we looked to raise funds for Sunderland Community Soup Kitchen - by chatting all things SAFC with the legends that are Crabbers and Julio Arca! What’s the crack? Gav and the rest of the lads …
 
Its been less than a month since we faced the Tractor Boys, yet things are very different at Portman Road. A shoddy start to the season, with a weak late November meant Paul Cook lost his job and Ipswich are currently manageless, so of course we caught up with massive Ipswich fan and YouTube sensation Benjamin Bloom to see just what we're up agains…
 
Our Gav was joined yesterday, after a restful and well deserved kip, by our Martin Wanless, and our friend and renowned man of tweed - the BBC's Nick Barnes - to look back at what has been a pretty decent weekend for the Sunlun family!
