They have just signed Steven Pienaar although this doesn't help their CB situation

Pienaar is past his best, looked good a few years ago, wouldn't be happy with lack of transfer activity if I was a Sunderland supporter, making Burnley look like big spenders.

Pienaar. FFS, PMSL. Played about 20 minutes of football last season. :D

Apparently they've spent about £7 million this summer. I realise there's an entire dorm of wet beds on that forum but they do actually look in pretty big trouble. Think it's going under the radar with Hull in such a bad way.

Getting more confident by the minute with all these injuries up the road. A solid 3-1 for me now with Negredo , Ramirez and a late one from Rhodes for us.

I think Moyes will sort them out over the course of the season. We *might* have caught them at a good time.

I think it's the best time. As you say they will sign players and improve

Can't argue with that. Losing their two starting CBs during the week and already missing their two strongest midfielders has to put us in a better position. Taking away those players I can't see anyone bar Defoe that I'd have in our lineup. A point is a minimum.

Moyes is a good manager at that level. He knows how to get the best out of average players. Hard to say whether last weekend was a typical opening day, enthusiastic performance or the start of an organised Sunderland team. Can't help but think all these injuries will undo much of Moyes good, early work on Sunday.

moyes cant be that good a manager they all want to leave. with the lack of ambition by the sunlun board and the loss of bfs they are screwed. any player with a drop of ambition wants out now.

 

its a shame we are playing them so early as the confidence will not be close to how low it will be in november. after losing the best players, getting no replacements and losing most games.

You can't blame Moyes for the players being unhappy. He's been there about 2 weeks! It's down to other, more ambitious clubs coming in for them, and Sunderland being happy to tread water.

Everything about the situation at Sunderland makes me nervous, sounds like a banana skin to me.

Regardless whats happening at the back end of the pitch, I still think at this point Defoe is going to be the difference in this one.

    • Even with no rumours today, I still back Warnock to bring in players he would actually use for his style and system. I’ve just watched (I know late to the party) Sunderland til I die season 2 and their January window episode.   Firstly, It amazes me how the chairman splurged money on Will Grigg when he could have used that extra money to get Maja to stay. But secondly, and more boro related was that the manager at the time Jack Ross didn’t really fancy Will Grigg, but the chairman bought him anyway. Surprise surprise, Will Grigg struggled and didn’t fit in to how they play.    How does this relate to Boro? Well I think in the past, we have bought players who don’t fit a style and system for a manager. I think Warnock won’t sanction players to come if they don’t fit in, and this is obviously a huge positive moving forward.    Put it this way, I’m more confident that players will come to us for Warnock and work for him as opposed to a Boro under Woodgate. You can already tell the mentality of moving on quickly and not begging for players had an impact.    Why did Woodgate start Gestede vs Swansea, knowing that Gestede wouldn’t want to play in case he got injured. Warnock commands respect and Woodgate was seeking it. Big difference in mentality that I think gets overlooked with Woodgate and the recruitment side. 
    • Warnock's deadline for players to decide has nearly passed.
    • All pritty quiet today, other than the wingy debate, hopefully in prep for an influx of new signings
    • That was actually scrapped in Denmark as it’s impossible for the stewards to tell if people live together. Just too hard to handle 
    • August 3rd 1974 Boro 0 Carlisle United 1 A dull and disappointing Texaco Cup game between two teams who were both contemplating life in the First Division after being promoted together a few weeks earlier. In fact they'd meet twice in the top flight in the next fortnight or so. Boro became frustrated after several early saves by Carlisle keeper Alan Ross and too often resorted to long balls that the visitors' tall defenders dealt with comfortably.  It was former Boro favourite Hugh McIlmoyle who created the only goal, setting up Martin to fire home after 50 minutes. All in all a bad day at the office for Boro, with Jack Charlton saying after the game that he'd seen his team work harder in practice matches. In the news - The Tories criticised Labour's manifesto pledge to follow a policy of nationalisation ahead of the forthcoming election, housewives were warned (in a possibly sexist way) that eggs could cost £1.50 a dozen by 1975, Richard Nixon prepared to give a TV address as impeachment loomed in the Watergate affair and three north east lads were arrested in Spain for singing loudly at 2am and fined £1 each (equivalent to 8 eggs, or a decent Spanish omelette). Top of the charts - Rock Your Baby by George McCrae.
