    Very sad to hear.

    My first time in the Fulwell End was v Wrexham in the FA Cup 1976-77 season.. and I heard the famous words in the cage "Sammy is our leader".

    Thanks for the memories Big Man, RIP.

    RIP. Never met the bloke but as a young’un heard his name a lot and all the tales, and the occasional Fulwell chant of ‘Sammy is our king’.

    Very sorry to hear that, very sorry.

    Sammy wasn't a perfect human being but he was a real character who enjoyed life and following Sunderland.

    His like may never be seen again and his passing, despite what some might believe, makes the world a little less interesting.

    God bless mate, you made a lot laugh and one or two cry ;)

    End of an era really.

    It was like when George died. You could reminisce to way back when you got to know, or know of, these lads.

    Up there with billy Simmons and co as supporter legends.

    I *knew* him from my youth, not as a friend just that he was always around and a bit of a legend, sad to hear of his passing.
