How could Big Sam be serious about signing a striker when O'Shea is out for 2-3 weeks minimum, Kaboul has a knock, Coates is rubbish, and Wes Brown is 36? And when they were fit they let in 19 goals in 9 games! We need a better CB. Yedlin is doing well at RB and so is Jones at LB, but we certainly need some quality in the middle. I don't know how much more obvious it needs to be.

Agree that was another shambles! defensively we looked all over the place paticularlay down the left side AGAIN! why play Tovonian . Brown when they aren't match fit? play them in the u21s for a few games and why why why why isn't Watmore not starting? again under successive managers he gets ignored?

Even Roberge would have been better than Brown today! all we want for Christmas is 2 centre backs! play the u21 defence it can't be any worse than this shambolic defence! you mentioned Jones he was badly out of position for 2 of there goals! not good enough!


2.) 02 Nov 2015 12:21:20
Agree jones is not a CB. I'm not sure why he was started at there ahead of Rodwell who has more experience and is better in the air. Coates just need to go far, far away. I'd honestly rather have Vergini at CB. Surely there is someone better than what we have right now in the bosman market. That said, I think a 3-5-2 could work with the right back 3. I've been hoping for that formation for a while now. But Coates, Brown, and Jones are not the right back 3, but unfortunately they're all we've got at the moment if he's not going to play the kids.


3.) 03 Nov 2015 00:56:59
Yes Big Sam has to hold his hands up playing 3 at the back was a recipe for disaster! probably better playing Graham at centre back! lol what about playing Larsson at right back! he has played there before and performed well! Yes we all want Vergini back now lol! I just hope Ellis Short releases some funds in Janurary or our goal difference is going to be embarrassing!


4.) 05 Nov 2015 10:54:08
Its worrying about the youth policy at this club! we have a england keeper on loan at Preston when he should be pushing Pants for place in the team! same goes for Watmore Gooch and several other youngsters paticuly when the u21s are doing so well and the first team so badly! that says the fooball knowlege at the top end of this club ie Congerton, Byrne and Short isn't very good and we need someone to come in and make sensible football decisions at this club! as usual fans know more about football than the people who are running this club!


5.) 30 Dec 2015 11:41:28
Poor Sam or whoever took this job. we have 4 good players, the rest well you see it week in week out. the fact is, Mr short messed up, he should have recruited back room staff and board members who were football people then stuck by a manager. he's took the easy way out, sack managers, now his luck has ran out.

its no good getting how big Sam's back, this has been coming for 5 years. as for Lens, that's what you get when you buy foreign players with big egos, look at Chelsea. Short needs to start letting managers sign players and get some football people in to run Sunderland. well let's hope we get 5 good plays in and hope for the best, but stick by SAM!


 

 

06 Oct 2015 01:02:17
Hopefully the next coach/manager plays the kids.

Ed, out of the top four or five to take the job, which one do you think would play the U-21s the most?

SAFCintheUSA

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea, sorry.}


1.) 08 Oct 2015 07:48:40
Robbie stockdale would play them. Top of their league too.


2.) 08 Oct 2015 08:54:08
it would be nice to see bobby mate but i'm afraid senior player power is killing our club at the moment and I don't think stockdale would have a chance against them but I would like to think he was one for the future alongside bracewell or phillips but if big sam or whoever gets the job I would like to see stockdale as their assistant to learn the ropes


 

 

04 Oct 2015 16:09:14
Big Sam? Sean Dyche? Pearson? Vieira? Can't say I'm excited about any of those names. Surely there is somebody better out there that would be willing to come.

SAFCintheUSA

1.) 04 Oct 2015 18:12:00
Feel sorry for any manager coming in because Short WONT back any manager! its Short that needs to go! we will struggle unless its sorted right at the top and at present Short hasn't a clue how to run a football club!


2.) 04 Oct 2015 20:26:18
Brendan Rodgers? Without stupidly high transfer fees at Liverpool he looked a good manager?


3.) 05 Oct 2015 00:42:35
And worse still I hear Congerton is handed the job of finding a new manager how idiotic is that?? . its like putting a shark in charge of a swimming pool! another brain dead decision by our wonderful chairman who knows nothing about football!


 

 

19 Sep 2015 13:57:11
So I've been wating and nobody on here is talking about the latest transfer rumour: Congerton back to bundesliga. He's been the topic of a lot of posts on here, I would think most would have an opinion. Thoughts?

SAFCintheUSA

1.) 20 Sep 2015 00:00:06
After the appaling performance against Bournemouth he needs to be sacked and quickly!


2.) 20 Sep 2015 02:10:17
bobstokoe1973, I think it is ridiculous that you can judge congerton based on how the players perform. I for one would say congerton did well bringing in who we did and to blame him for their under par performance is unfair. I don't like him either but your angle is disjointed


3.) 21 Sep 2015 12:59:44
I'm with FTM here . Congerton has had to work work with limited cash at an unattractive club for players to sign for with a back log of poor / useless players on high wages that no other club want to take off our hands.

Teh finger of blame goes all the way back to Keane, then Bruce, then O'Neil the De Fanti then Poyet!


4.) 22 Sep 2015 04:03:46
Congerton was instrumental in bringing in the likes of bridcutt buckly jones coates kaboule. All of which are very poor.

Someone has to be accountable and I think the cap fits with congerton.


5.) 22 Sep 2015 08:17:14
Buckley and Bridcutt were because Poyet told him to sign them, Coates is becasue Dick wanted him after the end of last season, Jones was a free transfer to replace Bardsley and Kaboul has only looked poor with Coates alongside him.

Do you still think it's Congerton pulling the strings as it appears to be the managers telling him who to pursue and buy!


6.) 22 Sep 2015 22:41:41
IM sorry but I stand by my comment on Congleton! he's failed in bringing quality players to this club that my opinion! so who is responsible? the manager the chairman? Congleton has to share the responsibility of failure!


7.) 23 Sep 2015 07:17:35
What is congertons remitt? He is given a type of player that is requierd and it his job to go and get them. Then he goes and gets us rubbish.


8.) 23 Sep 2015 09:18:48
Congerton may have to take some portion of the blame but not all of it as most people on here keep saying.

The managers provide the remit and I would think a list of names (Lens etc that Dick has recommended, Bridcutt and Buckley that Poyet suggested) and then the clubs scouts need to provide a list of options.

These are then put in front of the manager who will put them in the order to try and sign.

Our issue is the massive squad of poor quality players on high wages that we can not shift! Most of these are pre Congerton or players, as per Brid and Buck, that he was told to sign!

Although De Fanti was a liability we should have kept PDC as he acknowledged the 'Rotten' and 'Below Average' players and by now, even if we had been relegated one season, he would have cleared them out.

In my opinion Congerton is not the person to blame. It is each of the managers who seem to struggle to find a formation and style of play that allows us to both defend solidly and look potent in attack


9.) 23 Sep 2015 17:03:31
I agree with you on that gnsafc. Its not just congerton its the whole shabang. But they all won't go at once. So how do we deal with it?

Dick will b the scape goat, prob afta Manchester United game if its another disaster. Not that its all his fault.

Then we need a big strong personality who will take the club foreward and not be a yes man.

Is there anyone out there that fits our criteria?


 

 

31 Aug 2015 12:13:07
If we get Borini, buy another defender and be done. I think Advocaat knows how to get goals with the squad he's got, but our back line is dreadful. RB is covered for now but a quality CB or LB is definitely needed. Hope we get it.

SAFCintheUSA

1.) 31 Aug 2015 16:29:29
Yeah with borini in now I think left back is still our main issue, if we could bag a left back who could also play central that'd be the best of both worlds.

Started a petition to keep Big Sam at the club. If you support it please to the link and sign it. Share it. Tweet it. Post it. Get it out there if you can. He's the best chance we've had at success in years.

I see we're in the market for a RB. We have 3. Granted one is injured and another on loan, but why not a LB? Jones and Yedlin are both better at RB than PVA is at LB. Get a proper replacement and use him for back up.

07 Dec 2015 22:35:09
Anyone in goal other than Petr Cech and we would have won that game. He made some crucial saves.

Funny how negative we football fans are. 2 wins on the trot, a great young player, 9 points from 5 games, out of the RZ, but barely a peep on here. I'm not judging, I'm just as guilty.

I hope the club is not serious about getting rid of Defoe. The problem is our back line. Fix that and we're doing better. The past few years our problem has been goals now we get that sorted and they want to sell the most proven goal scorer we have to buy who? Unbelievable! Play him with Fletcher, sort out the back and we'll avoid relegation. Who better than Defoe would honestly come to second-to-last Sunderland in January?

SAFCintheUSA

1.) 22 Nov 2015 00:41:05
What is Short playing at forcing Big Sam to sell before he can buy is disasterous! and there's a rumour they will give Defoe away for free to release his and Larssons wages! . this club seems to be run by a bunch of idiots! Defoe should be starting alongside Fletch up front! I despair at the way this club is being run!


2.) 22 Nov 2015 21:43:51
Great to see Watmore signed up for another 5 years. next is Gooch and Pickford and a few others!


3.) 23 Nov 2015 12:22:02
Absolutely.


4.) 24 Nov 2015 01:41:34
I rest my case. 4 goals in 9 starts. Not great but not bad either. Play him with Fletcher and you're almost guaranteed a goal each game.

Also, I've been pretty hard on Coates this season but his last 2 performances have been class. I stand by using 3 CBs but only if O'Shea's in there.

Honestly, I can't decide what would be best. But I thought Larsson did well at right back. Put him there and try Jones at LB. I'm not 100% sure it would work, but it's worth a shot. After that, though, I have no idea. Thoughts?

I don't know why he didn't play Defoe and Fletcher. What is so wrong about 4-4-2? Just because other clubs don't do it? It's obviously the best for us, that's all that should matter. If you're going to defend that deep, you can't play with a lone striker. He's too isolated. Even if you do get the ball to him he's got 2 CBs and a DM on him straight away. There's no link up. I don't think it's time to scrap a 3-5-2 either. With Coates, Brown, and Jones? Yes. But not altogether. I thought for the first time this weekend Coates put in a good shift. Maybe Sam is getting through to him. Him, Kaboul, and JOS I think could handle the back line in that formation. Especially if Catts gets fit and can play in front of them.

I read the article and agree. Is he even being considered though? Probably not. Bookies have him 33/1. Big Sam now 1/2. Not good in my eyes.

Coates is consistently THE WORST player on the pitch. Yes, Kaboul didn't play well, but to me a lot of his troubles were from Coates being caught out of position. Play Brown and O'Shea! Better than the mugs we've got. Play the kids! Anyone but Coates and Kaboul. I wouldn't give Coates another chance in the first team. Absolute crap.
