What's everyone's views on the following head to heads? I am basing Sunderland's starting line up on Bardsley being injured and from what I have seen on here with Sunderland fans predicting their line up, and most saying they didn't want O'Shea at right back. Who will be the winners? Gardner v Gutierrez - Gardner gets stuck in but Gutierrez is quick on the ball, and with the back up of Santon going forward, its going to be a decent battle. Garnder to win it first half, Gutierrez second. O'Shea v Demba Ba - As good as I think O'Shea is, I think Demba will win this battle. Turner v Cisse - Cisse is just getting into it. I'd prefer Shola to play in this one but I think he will go with Cisse. He gets stuck in, and looks good when combining with Demba. Turner just needs to stand strong and not dive in I think, could be an interesting one with Turner keeping him quiet. Bridge v Raylor - Raylor battles well and is good when in space, he will be playing a more defensive role though, Bridge to win this one, Tiote v Colback - Tiote is good at keeping players quiet, I think he will be too good for Colback. Cabaye v Cattermole - Two players who love a challenge, Cabaye is better technically but Cattermole is good at being in the right place to cut things off. Even match up. Simpson v McClean - Gulp. Don't rate Simpson at all, will need all the help of Raylor to deal with him. McClean to rip him to spreads. Larsson v Santon - Santon is brilliant going forward, Larsson won't stop him. Defensively he is good and is getting better but he must stop crosses. Santon to win that one. Coloccini v Sessegnon - Colo has good positional sense, and never dives into a tackle. He stands players up and is smart when reading the next move. Sess has really good skill and pace. Evens. Williamson v Campbell - Uh oh, Williamson to get murdered. He will have to drop deap or Campbell will kill him. Campbell win. Overall, it's going to be close. Had we won on Saturday I wold have taken a point but for the sake of our season we need to win this one. Sunderland need to bounce back after 2 straight league defeats. We struggle with pace when playing a high line. Pardew has to drop them off a bit and don't leave us open to the counter attack, which is Sunderland's main threat.* Sold Out crowd, with 2500 mackems making the trip whilst supplying our owner with more money by bringing Sports Direct merchandise, that'll teach us! If you can't be bothered to do all heads to heads, don't, just highlight the key battles and who is likely to win the game. It's a boring day today, just passing the time.
