    Never see such a pessimistic build up. Please prove us wrong Saints!

    looked like 3 men in the box, chance for a cross, ends up a Yoshida back pass to the keeper, a phrase that usually fills me with fear

    We were attacking around the edge of their area, then we went sideways, backwards, backwards, all the way to Forster.
    Quicker than Sunderland could have ever attacked on the breakaway.

    Not this. Not today.

    Come on! Attack, stay attacking, shoot!

    It's one of the most frustrating pieces of our regular play. Player doesn't want to take a chance by hitting a risky/hopeful ball forward, so plays it safe. Not necessarily anything wrong with that, but when a few passes later Forster lumps it forward with an even more risky/hopeful ball with the outcome of a successful ball being worse than the original scenario, you have to wonder...!

    On the back foot. Making Sunderland look like a good team.

    Sunderland camped around our box for 3 minutes.

    2 corners & a free kick have come to nothing, but they're not passing it backwards all the time - gives them chances.

    Yeah, we've started really well. Such fire in the belly.

    Disappointing start. Hopefully we'll be able to get out from under all the pressure soon.

    Ahhhhhh, back in the day when midfielders could do four or five things as opposed to be a specialist in one.

    So much for our 7 days of prep for this.

    Looks like they are targeting jwp, soon as he gets the ball they rob it off him.

    Good tackle, Stephens.

    Sunderland are packing the midfield - it's worked well against us in recent games: Swansea, WHam...

    I hate those fluff pieces. "We have to kick the ball towards the goal" says Tadic after another disappointing defeat in which they forgot to kick the ball towards the opposition's goal.

    Don't ****ing tell us. We know, we have to watch it. Just get it ducking done on the field.

    Are the midfield 3 even playing? Terrible start.

    Ripping us apart. Awful so far.

    Just look off the pace. No-one tracking their runs. Always falls to their guy when it's a loose ball.
    We need to start tracking them...

    depressing that were making very average teams like West Ham and Sunderland look like world beaters

    Just pretend we are playing in red and white stripes. It's a much more enjoyable experience.

    Yes, but ball-watching. Not holding a midfield position when defending, nor taking up good positions in attack.

    Definitely 4-2-3-1 But with Davis as one the two DMs

    We're being cut through like a hot knife through butter. I guess when you're up against the attacking force of Sunderland you have to ride your luck a bit.

    And we have got that Skate barsteward Merson doing the game on Sky so we will not get any credit.

    Well, it was good for his left, but that didn't work either. Scuffed.

    They have sprinted through the middle unchallenged twice in the last 10 minutes. Better finishing and we would be behind.

    Should do much better than that, Gabbiadini. We were a bit lucky to get that chance though, Redmond having failed to find Tadic with a simple ball moments earlier.

    we have no confidence at all, they have their tails up - as always, thats the difference
