Kevin Phillips Collection
A modern day goal scoring hero like Super Kev deserves his own section on the web site.

Where to start? SuperKev had so many glorious moments in a Sunderland shirt, that it is very difficult to summarize his career in red and white. Think of the goal in the rain at St James'; the belters to seize both promotion and the title at Bury and Barnsley; or the banana shot from about 375 yards at the SoL against Chelsea. Perhaps the most beautiful moment though, was the 2-2 comeback against the Mags at the SoL in 99/00. On scoring his second, Phillips ran to the North East corner and tried to do a sort of forward flip thing before being engulfed by a sea of ecstatic red and white bodies...priceless! The only blemish? She-Ra and Kaygoon combining to thwart his England career, and not even appearing at Euro 2000 after he had just scored 7 trillion goals in the Premiership.
