Sunderland were back to winning ways on the weekend after a Luke O’Nien goal decided the match versus Southend United. Two diving header from O’Nien this week had Sunderland fans reminiscing about their favourite headers from the past. 

Sunderland asked fans to share their favourite Sunderland headers from days gone by. There were a few headers that popped up once or twice in the answers, but there was one that stood out as being a clear fan favourite. A goal from Gordon Armstrong in the FA Cup against Chelsea in 1992.

Here is a video of the brilliant Armstrong goal.

What do we think?

The header from Armstrong was a brilliant one. With O’Nien clearly on form, perhaps there is an opportunity for the 24-year-old to score an even greater goal than Armstrong’s. Should one of his headers secure promotion back to the Championship, it will surely go down in Sunderland folklore. Regardless of whether he achieves that, though, he will certainly be an important cog in Phil Parkinson’s plans moving forward.
