Niall Quinn: Sunderland should learn from rivals Newcastle if they want to bounce back

The Wearside legend – whose strike partnership with Kevin Phillips in the 1990s helped Sunderland win promotion twice before an unlikely alliance with Roy Keane led to their Championship title in 2007 – is distraught the club closest to his heart has fallen apart.
Quinn spearheaded the Drumaville consortium which bought the club in 2006 and stayed as chairman for six years, providing stability in a turbulent environment.
But since leaving the Black Cats in 2012 they have been through six different bosses and as many relegation scraps.
Finally this year they succumbed and today’s game at Chelsea will end their 10-year stay in the top flight.
Yet while Quinn has no interest in a return to the Stadium of Light he is desperate for the current regime to find a formula for Championship success – and reckons the way Newcastle and Rafa Benitez went about things is the secret.
Quinn said: “I have been through relegation as a player – and it is turmoil. There is no other word for it.
“Everyone suffers – fans, players, staff, the manager, the owner and as soon as it happened my thoughts were to take a deep breath, see if the group that’s in place there now, the football department, the coach, the owner, can find a plan that will have a positive effect.”
And he added: “I remember the buzz in the north-east in the late 1990s when Newcastle were challenging for the title and qualifying for the Champions League, when we were playing some good stuff and Bryan Robson built a great team around Fabrizio Ravanelli and Juninho at Middlesbrough.
“The atmosphere in the region was incredible.
“And I want that back. I want to see Sunderland back in the Premier League. And I wouldn’t be complaining if Sunderland walked down the same road as Newcastle did last year, sticking by their plans and backing their manager the way Newcastle backed Rafa Benitez.
“Hopefully they can do what Newcastle did this season on and off the pitch. Then the fans can buy into it and the positives will start to come back to the club.”

Let us hope that Short is listening and will provide tangible support to the manager...

We all know the problem and we can change players and managers but without adequate funding we will only go one way.

The talk is rife of Moyes walking bur I hope it's just talk. He has lost the dressing room, well maybe that's because he has said what we have been saying and the poor darlings don't like it. He has lost the fan's, yes he has lost many but fan's being fan's they will come flooding back if we start winning.

Bring in the world's top manager and give him peanuts and he fails.
