Nice one Kyril
Nice one son
Nice one Kyril
let’s have another one (play-off win/promotion)..
I think the club's got under his skin
Are they the same ones who predicted relegation for us ...
Yeah probably, he would obviously have approved the wording before it went out in his name.
I agree being the underdogs, mainly due the number of injuries happening to key players, we can play with freedom and nothing to lose.
Undoubtedly TM will have some stratagem for covering our arses in defence...secret superball bouncy rubber in the football boots to jump high? Hume and 09 put on a rack overnight to make taller. Nanotechnology used to make Ballard and Batth fit.
Who knows... its going to be interesting... a draw tomorrow and we win at there place.
Think TM is playing games with the press lads. Apparently Gooch and Cirkin trained yesterday without any problems.
It's ****ing brilliant being the underdogs. I don't know why so many of our fans (on twitter at least) seem so triggered about the fact most people think Luton will beat us.
We have THRIVED on being the underdogs. I'd be really flipping worried if everyone thought we were shoe-ins.
60 photos of training on Facebook and they weren't there. But neither were A LOT of players. I genuinely think the club has intentionally put out lots of photos of the same small amount of players training, as part of this misdirection.
It's not really that important obviously but its just a guess
I heard it from a lad who does some age group coaching at the AoL as well as a local non-league club.
I don't and by the sound of it neither do you.
We're in great form, will have a massive crowd and are at home.
Luton have only had three on target efforts each time they've played us and only scored here from a rare flap by Patterson. I'm not saying it'll be easy but I'd be surprised if Luton come here and win.
Being 'underdogs' implies a Sunderland win would be a shock ...
... I don't think anyone sees it like that tbh.
I doubt it. Those 2 lads are actually really knowledgeable about the football league. They've built a reputation doing their "not the top 20" podcast and have sort of been invited into the bigger circles off the back of that success. They're the ones who are saying Dan Neil and Dennis Cirkin are 2 of the best players under the age of 21 in the country.
It's a realistic view point and one I don't disagree with. Doesn't mean we won't do it of course.
Well get your posts deleted now ffs, don't want to give it away!
We're going to hammer these tomorrow.
We didn't have a chance at
West Brom A
No reason we can't beat Luton at home and away.
Yes, our home form has been iffy but I'm going for it being our day...... 3 - 0 to the lads......Clarke, Gelhardt and Ekwah. It's just something how this season has played out......I think our lads have a few more surprises for us yet. If this score turns out to be correct I think we will go down 2 - 0 at their place and we will all be on our pray mats till the end of the game....It's Sunderland.....never anything is easy
Tremendous as always this thread.
Two in form sides, but you have to say the level of our play has to be something to marvel at. The level of control we had at Preston in the second half was unreal. Not the first time either. If Neil and Ekwah can produce the level they produced at Preston then I think we can win over the two legs. I think the midfield is key, as usual, to our control of the ball. Keeping our front 4 or 5 players out over 180 minutes seems unlikely to me. The fact we can score at anytime, and either on the counter or through sustained pressure, means we are so hard to play against at.
Luton are a very good side, I dont doubt that at all. Over 2 legs they will have times when they are on top. That is when our heart and guts must shine. The likes of ONien, Gooch and Hume, along with Neil and Pritchard must then rally everyone and keep us going. Unlike most teams we are just one flash of a left foot from Amad or Roberts, or a Jack Clarke run inside away from a goal. And we always go to the end, these lads never give in on us. In fact I dont remember a team who have played the last 10 minutes of the match so determinedly as these young uns.
My head says this is going to take two legs of massive effort and quality. My head also says these lads will leave nothing on the pitch to do it. Whatever the outcome we can be proud of every last one of them.
My heart says Pritchard is going to become a real Sunderland legend over these next 3 games. There was something about his performance last week that was beyond the norm. He is always a leader and a dangerous player. He looked to me like a man on a mission though, someone determined to force the game and win whatever it took. I have thought this would be his last season with us. I now have a feeling there is a real fire burning in him to get us to the prem and have another crack at it. He just had that mentality on Sunday.
Haway the lads.
