We are funny bugger with footballers, most leave us in the end and many get slated for it, then we have players like Julio.

He leaves to join a local rival but can do no wrong with us Sunderland fans, guess that what being a legend is all about.

Part of the great fire sale exodus when we were relegated, him and SKP went for a song when they would have commanded tens of millions the season before.

Decent player and that is it however, mention his name and I'd say the majority of Sunderland fans would know who he was. Mention Joe Bolton and quite a few would struggle (can't say I saw him play to be honest).
Legend status? I would say yes even though he wasn't as good as some who have been before him.

[*]Joe Bolton

Player of the Day: Joe Bolton

Published: 20 January, 2014
by Oscar Chamberlain

Roker legend in the spotlight.
Birtley-born full-back Joe Bolton graduated through the youth ranks at Roker Park to make 319 first- team appearances for Sunderland.
Bolton made his breakthrough in the 1971-72 season with his debut coinciding with a season-best win as Watford were thumped 5-0 on Wearside.

Joe would make 11 appearances at the end of the campaign under Alan Brown, including four in the Anglo-Italian Cup.

Brown started the following season with Bolton as his first choice full-back, though following his departure both Billy Elliott and Bob Stokoe would prefer to use the more experienced Ron Guthrie.

Bolton did play in the opening two games of the famous FA Cup success of 1973 in home and away clashes with Notts County whilst he also notched his first goal for the club during that season in a 4-0 hammering of Brighton & Hove Albion at Roker Park.

Stokoe would begin to prefer Bolton to Guthrie towards the end of the 1973-74 campaign and the local lad would make 37 appearances over the course of the season as Sunderland finished sixth in the Second Division.

By the time of the 1974-75 season, Bolton was an established member of the Black Cats squad and he would begin to chip in with the odd goal as Stokoe’s side finished fourth in their battle for promotion to the top-flight.

Strikes in wins over Orient and Bristol City came after he’d notched in a 2-0 FA Cup third round success over Chesterfield.

The hard-working, steely character was emerging as a cult-hero with the Roker faithful as he made 43 appearances during the 1975-76 season with Stokoe’s side finally returning to the top-flight after a six-year absence.

Bolton’s only goal of the campaign came in a final day home success over Portsmouth as the Black Cats secured the Second Division title.

Unfortunately, relegation back to the second tier came immediately with Bolton the only Sunderland player to feature in every league and cup game.

He scored in a 1-1 draw at West Ham United as Jimmy Adamson took over from Stokoe before the end of the campaign.

Bolton was enjoying an increasing popularity amongst the Sunderland fans and, when he scored twice on the final day of the 1977-78 season against Charlton Athletic, it seemed he would be on for his first Black Cats hat-trick when the Lads were awarded a penalty, though Bolton unforgettably smashed the ball over into the fans in the Fulwell End.

Sunderland didn’t return to the top-flight until 1980 with Bolton scoring three more goals for the Black Cats in wins over Wrexham and Oldham Athletic as well as notching in a 2-2 draw at Fulham.

Sunderland never lost in a game that Bolton scored in and he is forever remembered as one of Roker Park’s cult-heroes.

23rd on the Black Cats’ all-time appearances list, Joe enjoyed a decade of sterling service before joining Middlesbrough for £200,000 in July 1981.

Bolton spent two years on Teesside before moving to Sheffield United in 1983 where he would eventually retire from playing in 1985 due to a serious knee injury.

A spell as boss of Matlock Town followed before Joe would eventually pursue a career in the haulage industry.

Enjoyed the imput from the other posters, Mind the Willow Pond has been a very local orientated pub, with regulars since forever. One regular in particular, was Bill Maynard, he used to booze there every lunchtime, before his performance on the Empire. And a very nice geezer.
