Do you think we would concede if we were the only team on the pitch?

Just got back but listened to that sorry first half on the drive home.

We are too lightweight when we do get in the attacking third (as we all knew) but sorry to say we are doomed unless we stop conceding ridiculous goals.

Sounds like Lee Camp is no better than Ruiter or Steele and I trust Gary Bennett, if he says three at the back is not working then we have to stop playing that way. It is no good us going three down by half time and changing at half time and holding them 0-0 in the second half!

I see nothing but relegation for Sunderland unless something miraculous happens.

Well maybe all is not lost!

3-2 Very Happy 

I just said to Mr H that we needed a performance like that one against Man City (sorry Sid MCFC) when Connor Whickham scored (we drew but coudl have won but for a mistake by Mannone)  and that triggered our fightback when we stayed up.

We need exactly what we have just got, a reaction and the senior players like Cattermole and McGeady taking responsibility.

7 mins left. Hmmm... is there hope yet? Very Happy

Sometimes you need a little bit of luck to inject some confidence!

I'm having humble pie for tea.
Fair play for a fantastic second half performance.
4 at the back all the time for me now.
The change in the personnel & formation made the difference.

We will be on Channel 5 Football show later tonight so we can see how bad our defending was in first half. Shocked

But have to say well done lads for doing what was needed in second half. Very Happy

We could have even won that if Fletcher's shot had gone in. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Perhaps Coleman has now learned and will not play three at the back next week? Question

It has to be 4-4-2 and because we cannot defend, Lets go all out attack instead of waiting to go behind before we start playing. It's simple enough.

It sounded like quite a few of the away fans stayed to the end and all credit to them it is such a long way to travel. At least they got their reward for their commitment. Very Happy

And it should be a lesson learned by the Coal man.
DO NOT PLAY THREE AT THE BACK!!!
Good comeback but I think it's just papered over the cracks.

Championship strugglers Sunderland came from 3-0 down to rescue a point at promotion hopefuls Bristol City.
‪The Robins, who have won just once in 2018, were three goals ahead inside 37 minutes as the Black Cats capitulated.‬
‪Aden Flint poked City ahead before two close-range finishes from Famara Diedhiou prompted some away fans to leave Ashton Gate early.‬
‪But, after Josh Brownhill's own goal and Aiden McGeady's strike, Marlon Pack diverted into his own net for 3-3.‬
‪It capped an amazing final 20 minutes for Sunderland, whose supporters had greeted the half-time whistle with boos and chants of "you're not fit to wear the shirt" towards their own players.‬

  • Relive Saturday's EFL action


‪Operating with a back three and wing-backs, the Black Cats had produced a woeful defensive display before the break and could have been even further behind if City had been more ruthless.‬
‪Yet a change in formation brought about a much-improved display, and Ashley Fletcher may even have equalised moments before Pack's unfortunate stoppage-time leveller, only to be denied by an incredible point-blank save from Frank Fielding.‬
‪Bristol City's dramatic collapse was as remarkable and unexpected as Sunderland's late improbable revival - and came exactly a year to the day after they squandered a 3-0 half-time lead at Derby County to draw 3-3.‬
‪Lee Johnson's side remain three points clear of seventh but have now dropped six points adrift of the automatic promotion places after a run of just one win in seven league matches.‬
‪Sunderland are 23rd, one point above bottom side Burton Albion and three points from safety.‬‬

@JHunterChron
Coleman: We looked better with a back four today. Five at the back has worked for us, it has got us clean sheets, but we looked better after changing formation today. [ltr]#safc[/ltr]
