BFTG Sunderland Away

Not the greatest performance but great result - a lot easier once they went down to 10 men.

BFTG Sunderland

by Kitsondinho » 02 Dec 2017 21:17

Just got in. What a great win! The 1st half was fairly even in terms of chances but I’d say we played the better football. There was a little bit of bite from both teams and I was pleased to see Aluko getting amongst it! Obviously the balance swung in our favour when McManaman get sent off in injury time. The goal certainly looked dodgy, but I was expecting the offside flag rather than the 2nd yellow. I couldn’t really see if it was deliberate. However, if it was then he was stupid after being deservedly booked earlier in the half.

2nd half we were in total control, shown by the two Liams passing the ball between each other inside the centre circle. Coleman had obviously told them to stand off us inside our own half, which allowed us the time and space to build from the back. It seemed a bizarre thing to do, but I do think Coleman is going to come unstuck with Sunderland.....Anyway, all 3 goals were well worked. Barrow caused them no end of problems before slotting those two in. Vito was unlucky with the pen, which seemed very similar to the one Bacuna won at Bolton. Overall a great away day!

Blitzed the 280 miles home in under 4 and a half hours.

We played very well and Sunderland were pretty poor but a tidy side. I think they'll stay up with Coleman as manager.

On to us, I don't think the sending off changed the game as we were the better side when it was 11 vs 11.

MoM was between Barrow, Aluko and VdB. Kelly looks out of form

The Coleman myth will be debunked at Sunderland. He is an average manager.

Was very happy with our play. I liked the 10 or so minutes of us passing it about on the halfway line at 1-0. It actually helped us quite a bit. Wound up the Sunderland players and pulled them out of position allowing us the freedom to add to the goal tally.

Barrow now has scored roughly 25% of his total shots. Hes a bit of a legend.

Keep up this form please.

Starting line up being unchanged for the 3rd consecutive game, was a major positive. Sunderland are without doubt a poor team. Shame the afternooon was marred by yet another defensive howler. Even when 3-0 nil up , The tempo needs to be maintained. Passing the ball on the half way line simply brought this on. As the team lost focus and concentration.

Game against Cardiff will be a far better judge as to how good we really are. Though recent signs are promising.

MOM Edwards. Quietly effective.

first “defensive howler” in four games?

Yes it’s great to see a Jaap team finally getting the chance to actually settle as a team.......however

he will not start with Bod will he?

Which I think is a bit of a shame in the current scheme of things.

Otherwise.....happy bunnies

This thread is absolute gold:

https://www.readytogo.net/smb/threads/s ... t.1406204/

Apparently a Sunderland supporter absolutely off his face (on probably more than just alcohol) decided to drop his trousers and have a shit. Right there in the stands. Although there is some debate as to whether it was a shit, or just a piss. Either way, there is photographic evidence (non-graphic) and eyewitness accounts, including one of a kid in the row in front vomiting everywhere when they saw it happen.

Really good stuff from the lads. We've had plenty of hiccups this season but we are starting to finally see some form of consistency, in both the lineups and the results. Maybe this season isn't a write off after all. Just a few random thoughts:

- VDB immense again. He is really coming into his own this season, although you do still fear he will make the occasional costly mistake in such an important role.
- Would keep Kermie up front for Cardiff since their defense is quite physical, but he is clearly still in recovery. Would like to see Bod start some games in December.
- Dave Edwards is looking like a great pickup and if we achieve anything this season then his goals from midfield and set pieces will be crucial. I was one of the people calling this signing a waste at the start of the season but he's been in great form.
- At this point I think it might be better for us not to sign a left back in January, as Gunter would move back to RB. Bacuna is much more positive and it's paying off.
-I'm still bloody annoyed that we didn't score against that shit Wednesday side, who were far worse than Sunderland.

Onwards and upwards
