Sunderland Message Board
It's long been a problem---and trying to contact Yahoo is a waste of time. Winning the Lottery a whole sight easier. They also class the old First Div as being the Prem. They don't even read the feedback--so what's the point--they just keep on doing what THEY want! The match commentaries are rubbish--never up with the game--the comments boards keep disappearing--the site is so slow to load and links even slower...A total waste of everyones time.
I dont share the thought that Gyan is "a dud"! Like many Strikers, he needs a link-man. Welbeck was the one--but his injuries stopped that.
The real problem at Sunderland--I feel--is that we have too many loan players--with no real Club allegiance. If we go down--and I dont think we will-- those players lose nothing, they just go home!. We need to BUY a better class of player than BRUCE has bought so far. His policy of buying the cheaper S Americans hasn't paid off! Generally---"you get what you pay for" is right---though 9m for Gordon was also a failure--but not a Bruce signing. I think we should be looking to some players from eastern european countries, who are more compatible with EPL style of play--and climate. Look for good players from Clubs being relegated----every "poor" club has 1 or 2 good individual players.
A good example is Marc-Andre 'ter Stegen, 18yrs old, Goalkeeper with Borussia Moenchen-Gladbach, in Germany, who seem sure to be relegated--though they beat Dortmund yesterday. 'ter Stegen played a blinder for an 18yr old.(played for Germany U17s) There are surely many others. If the Club has ambition then they have to buy realistically---Ellis Short, please note!!!
