Please Send Bradley Lowery A Christmas Card

Five year-old Bradley Lowery is the young Sunderland fan who has been fighting a rare cancer (neuroblastoma) and who Everton gave £200K to in mid-September for his treatment in the US.

Unfortunately his mum and dad posted some very tragic news yesterday that they have been told he has lost his battle with the killer disease and hasn’t long to live.

The cancer has grown.

5 year-old Bradley Lowery

His mom and dad – Carl and Gemma – have said his wish is to have as many Christmas cards as possible and they are OK with their address being given out.

So please send Lowery a Christmas card as soon as you can, wherever you are in the world.

Here’s the address:

5 Attlee Avenue,
Blackhall Rocks,
Hartlepool TS27 4BY

Let’s get those cards to Bradley now.

And during tomorrow’s game against Birmingham City, all fans at St. James Park are asked to join in a round of applause during the fifth minute of the game in his honor.

    Personally I see Armstrong as one of two forwards in a 442 rather than leading the line but Rafa doesn’t seem to favour that formation.
    He could possibly play the no 10 role in our current system which puts him up against Diame and Perez in that position, neither of which have performed consistently this season and for me based on performance Diame this season has been the better player, although not by much.
    On Perez, last season in the PL he seemed to have great ability with the ball at his feet either running with it or taking on players. The ball did seem to stick to him well, especially in tight areas surrounded by opposition players.
    It was one of the things I did like about Perez but roll on one year and he appears to have lost that ability.

    Another repost
    Should add that I would prefer we bought a skilfull playmaker as a no 10 either next month or in the summer rather than relying on Armstrong returning.
    I believe he could have a future with us but he is in no way our saviour for promotion or to consolidate our position on return to the PL.

    I wouldn’t hazard a guess as to who we may or may not be looking at for as a potential no 10 although Hazard would be good (with tongue firmly in cheek).
    Not sure about Guess though, haven’t seen enough of him and would see him as an unknown quantity!

    First post and missed the bus. No change there then. 57Bobbybee // Dec 9, 2016 at 5:11 PM

    Did anybody watch Arma in the Forest game? He made run after run into space, yet wasn’t picked out once. He plays on the shoulder of defenders and needs to be picked out to be effective. Barnsley play a lot of long and high balls that is completely unsuitable to his game. Frankly he’s wasted there. Not one chance was created for him in that game and it wasn’t down to him not trying. It is no surprise to me that he’s not scoring in a team that goes so direct. He needs to move, or come home as cover for Gayle. Given the chances Gayle gets, I reckon Arma would fill his boots. You only need to look at the quality of his goals to realise that. That’s why he’s so prolific for England, because they play to his strengths. Barnsley is useful for giving him chance to get used to sheer frustration, but he won’t reproduce his previous form in that side. Wrong team, wrong manager, wrong choice.

    That needs to be looked at then and get him moved, if it is purely as cover for Gayle though he could end up with very little game time.
