Sunderland ace Jermain Defoe's message for 'unbelievable' Bradley Lowery

26 Jan

Bradley has won the hearts of thousands for his bravery in fighting neuroblastoma, a rare cancer.

He was given the special award with fundraisers Lynn Murphy, Michael Eggleston and fellow youngster Charlie Creaser. The presentation featured a personal video message from Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe. He said: "I'd just like to congratulate little Bradley for this amazing award. Describing him as "an unbelievable young boy", he said the moment he first met him was "way beyond football". "He's a special young boy, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart."

Defoe a shining light at dreary Sunderland; United’s depth a key strength: Premier League talking points

04 Jan

Following the latest round of Premier League matches on Monday, Thomas Woods provides his thoughts on some of the biggest talking points.

Defoe is the answer — for several clubs

Chances are that Sunderland are going to be relegated this season. They have a poor defence, little strength in depth and are losing several players to the African Cup of Nations (Afcon). They have flirted with relegation for several seasons now and nothing seems to change.  Their main glimmer of hope is Jermain Defoe, but the big question now is — can Sunderland hang on to him?

Defoe is one of the Premier League’s greatest goalscorers. He is seventh in the all-time scoring list with 154 goals, ahead of Michael Owen. The second half of last season showed his worth when his goals led Sunderland to safety. He barely needs a sight of goal to be able to score, which is what makes him such an asset.


Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe continues to impress at the top level... is the 34-year-old actually getting better with age?

03 Jan

David Moyes was asked a question last week - is Jermain Defoe actually getting better with age?

The Sunderland boss was reluctant to say that, at 34, Defoe was now at the peak of his powers, but he certainly agreed that there has been no deterioration.

Moyes, in fact, may have been wrong. Defoe's point-saving double against Liverpool on Monday took his Premier League tally for the season to 11.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jermain Defoe are proving that age is nothing but a number... which other Premier League strikers were golden oldies?

With his goal at West Ham on Monday, Zlatan Ibrahimovic reached 18 for the season, a total that is already one more than United's leading scorer last term - Anthony Martial - achieved...

Sunderland 2016-17; 11 goals in 21 appearances and counting

Another thirty-something who simply can't stop scoring at the moment is Defoe, who seems to be almost single-handedly leading Sunderland's survival bid. His two penalties against Liverpool on Monday took the former England striker into double-figures for the campaign and if the Black Cats do stay up, David Moyes will owe him a huge debt of gratitude.

Sunderland need Jermain Defoe to survive, admits David Moyes as West Ham target striker

30 Dec

Jermain Defoe will lead the line for Sunderland on Saturday – with David Moyes saying he’s their best chance of survival.

The striker is top of Slaven Bilic’s wanted list in January and Defoe’s future could depend on Sunderland being in touch with their relegation rivals at the end of the month, still in with a healthy chance of staying up.

Defoe admitted he wasn’t surprised to be the centre of transfer speculation because “the people that score goals are wanted.”

Defoe’s future could become a major worry if Sunderland, who face Burnley, drift out of contention at the bottom by the end of January.
