We don't get to see too many wins but SAFC managed to get into tonight's fourth round draw after edging Leeds. Here's your chance to rate the players.
I feel a bit weird about yesterday. The biggest positive, I hope, is that Gus has realised just how important Emanuele Giaccherini and, to lesser extent, Ricky Alvarez can be to us. Anyway, here is your chance to rate the players for the first time in 2015.
Yet another draw that really wasn't worth staying up to see the highlights. Despite a slightly more intense final few minutes, Sunderland again lacked that creativity and killer touch in front of goal and left the midlands with just a single point after playing almost the entire second half with an extra man. Here's your chance to have your say on the performance by rating the players below.
Sleeping on it has probably made me even more annoyed about how poor we were yesterday. A win would have seen us eight points off the drop zone. Now, though five is still a decent cushion, I feel like we are incapable of beating the teams we need to be beating at home - and they make up most of our home fixtures for the rest of the campaign. Here's your chance to vent a little by rating the player performances below.
