why all this bad feeling towards borini amazes me last season the lad helped us avoid certain relegation and reach a cup final. i'm sure most of us think he is wrong staying at a club who wanted rid of him but the lad has ambition to force his way into the side which you can't knock. while with us last season he stated on numerous occasions that he intended to fight for his place at Liverpool and even though I think he has no chance, by January I think he will realise and move on weather that's to us or someone else I don't know. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for last season and hope his desire to break into the Liverpool team gets him a chance as i'm sure as he showed for us he will take it in his stride.

Wahey! Finally a comment on here being positive about a bloke who worked harder than anyone when at the club. I couldn't give a monkeys about all this absolute garbage being aimed at the club on here, Congleton and Poyet doing a great job, not only recruiting proper footballers but changing the standards across the whole club, including improving existing players. We won't go down and Borini will have a v good career because he's got a bit about him. And extremely confident we'll finish ahead of Hull and QPR who are throwing cash around like no tomorrow.

people are a bit peeved because of the way Borini mucked us about,should have just said he would not come at the start,yes he helped us stay up last season,but it seems he thinks he is some sort of a wonder striker,maybe his agent has been filling his head with delousions of grandeour but he will have sores on his ass after bench warming at Liverpool and I will think he will regret his decision.
we will sign another striker in next window or maybe someone on loan in next couple of weeks,maybe Jonas.
thanks Fab for last season but you have went down in my view as another big headed overpaid tart

Largey mate could you or someone enlighten me where borini said he would sign as I never heard or read about it yes we had a bid accepted but the lad wanted to stay at liverpool this is the risk we take with loan signings who shine they usually stay where they are or go to another club rose welbeck given evans to name a few the fans took to now we have coates and alvares who I will be surprised if either sign so don't get to attached as they belong to other clubs

{Ed001's Note - Borini made no secret of not wanting to return to Sunderland. The club knew his position all along, and so did Gus.}

Gus said "it is not Borini who is holding up the deal", but wouldn't say what factors it was. I feel he needs to take a lot of the blame on this one.
