Loyalty and patience, two undervalued concepts.

Venue: Stadium of Light, Sunderland
(capacity: 49'000 seats)
Next game to the league's worst team so far in this new season, sitting at the bottom with just one point.
The players have just managed to get rid of Di Canio however, and have won their first game under interim manager Kevin Ball, beating Petersborough 2-0 in the League Cup.
So, they will be very motivated to do well, and I'd have obviously preferred for them to wait sacking Di Canio until we played them. It will now be a much more difficult proposition, and given our poor run of late, we'll have to up our game big time if we want to take the three points there.
If we manage to be as comitted as against the mancs, we still have a good chance though to win this, especially with Luis back now. The goals will come flowing eventually, hopefully it will be as soon as this coming Sunday. Fingers crossed!
