Unfortunately for me, simply answering ‘we can’t’ doesn’t make a good article when considering how SAFC can beat Liverpool tomorrow. As the dark clouds of inevitability approach Wearside’s horizon, games are fast running out and the goals tank seems all but empty.

Gus Poyet is to take first bow as Sunderland boss at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday. We have enjoyed reasonable success against the Swans since their arrival in the Premier League, unbeaten in four games.

The team is in a current state of disarray with so many new signings... [More]
