We have to forget Cattermole.

I just think we are missing the will to win!!  Mad

3 or 4 new signings might be needed at this rate.

A proper experienced left back and 2 or 3 good loan deals to give a spark to the squad!!

this may sound a bit crazy, so bear with me here, what I think the team needs are strikers that can score on a regular basis - I know, I said its a bit 'out there' but I really think it would help

the stats make the issue with this team very clear which is a lack of attack - we had more than 50% of the possession and yet look at the numbers:

Shots: Ipswich 17 Sunderland 3
Shots on Target: Ipswich 7 Sunderland 1
Corners: Ipswich 8 Sunderland 1

so in 90mins with over half the possession we muster 1 shot on goal and 1 corner

As the late great Brian Clough once said "Players win games - not tactics"! "These tactical experts would be lucky to win a game of bloody dominoes let alone a game of football".
How true and how bloody sad to see a team with the history of Sunderland FC have one shot on goal for an entire game. The ghosts of those long dead who cheered the team to unprecedented glory from the stands of Roker Park must surely be turning in their graves to see this once great, formidable and feared Club wallowing in the dregs of League 1 football.
Don't worry but you will need a lot of patience before Sunderland FC rise like the Phoenix from the Ashes to regain the glory that was once prevalent. Names like Carter, Shackleton, Hurley, Montgomery, Kerr, Phillips and Clough may have passed into the annals of history but there are new heroes yet to rise.
Whether this will be in the near future or later remains to be seen.

That's what I said last night, except it wasn't a question . . . . we definately are missing Catts Sad


The question is 'what do we do about it ?' 'cos we've done nothing about it yet !

100% agreement from me. I've been saying this for over a year. Don't sell your keeper & NEVER sell your striker. They ALWAYS cost more to replace!!!!

Ps. To the Op, thank goodness Cats has gone. He did nothing for SAFC's & cost Short millions upon millions.
