The new book is edited by Lance Hardy, Graeme Anderson and Rob Mason who've spent many months compiling and interviewing a Sunderland AFC XI that we hope has something for everyone.


The players in the book span a period of six decades: from the days of Len Shackleton to Roy Keane. There are many stories of promotions, relegations, Cup runs, friendships, fall outs and much more. There is plenty for Sunderland fans to reminisce about, but there is also a lot to learn as well, with more than a few exclusives along the way.
