    Career move for Craig Gordon?

    Craig Gordon is going to spend sometime on the bench(hopefully) - Why doesn't he team up with the 2 other goalkeeping clowns Robinson and Carson and form a circus act for the kids at Christmas? -- The ball catching act would have everybody #$%$ themselves and cheer everybody up and let them forget for afew minutes at least, about Englands non-qualification for Euro 08 and Sunderlands struggle in the PL.

    • Ales - it's quite simple really - A goalkeeper needs to be able to catch a ball and hold it in his hands to - prevent the other team from kicking it into the Sunderland net.

      Nope I still fail to see how Sunderland's #$%$ defence has got anything to do with CG. Admittedly one of the goals on saturday he should have stopped but if he's left exposed time after time he's not gonna be able to save everything. There are others in the sunderland team who need to have a good hard look at themselves. McShane and Nosworthy and whoever plays in your non-existant midfield!

      • Over the course of a season Gordon will make more saves than mistakes,was he worth 9 million ,you have to say at the moment no.In time i believe he will prove himself in England as by his own admissions to friends he found the pace of the game relentless,most of this being down to midfield losing possesion and pressure on the back 4 constant .If and it is a big if, our defence can be made up of proper defenders Gordon will gain in confidence,something he does not have to much of in the present back 4.
