Former Sunderland player Stephen Elliott is never afraid to hold back when sharing his views of the current state of the club, whether it is discussing the tactics of Phil Parkinson or the decision-making of Stewart Donald.
With football put on hold, he doesn’t have that luxury, so has instead recently got involved with a fan discussion about the best forgotten Sunderland goals.
One fan on Twitter recalled a strike by Elliott against Wolves at Molineux but the striker in fact shared that he preferred one he scored against the Midlands outfit in a 3-1 home win in 2004.
The Irishman’s strike was one to behold in that match, as he turned and volleyed goalwards, with the ball crashing in off the underside of the crossbar on its way in to give the Black Cats the lead.

Liam Lawrence had equalised and the former midfielder took notice of his ex-teammate’s comment after Elliott praised the quality of his goal, too.
Got two that game i think sleeves . One decent one yeh 😅🙌🏻

Lawrence was more than happy to hear of his goalscoring feats, which were just one of several in a Sunderland shirt as both he and Elliott helped the north-east outfit to promotion under Mick McCarthy.
