Let's face it if Liverpool were mad enough to offload Bellamy, he is going to have plenty of options and that being the case there is no way he'd sign for a club like Sunderland even taking into consideration the "Big Niall's magic carpet" phenomenon.

 

We really need to put the Macums season in a kind of context. They always do well in the 2nd level, and in fact they actually did BETTER under the previous chairman, manager and players at that level. I.E. they actually won the league.

That did not stop them then being the two worst relegated sides the Premiership has ever had. At this point in time Quinn/Keane have done nothing that Murray/McCarthy didn't also achieve, although you'll struggle to point that out to their intoxicated supporters right now.

Best post related to Sunderland I've seen anywhere recently. 

 

That said though, i was saying to my mates at the match yesterday that should we go up (far from certain) that we should at least inquire about Bellamy should Liverpool try and and ship him out.  As he'd offer something we havn't had for years up front, and that's pace.  Plus it would be a statement of intent from the board.

Exactly. It's worth a go. Didn't you bid for Crouch just before he left Southampton for Liverpool?

Sunderland's best hope would be that a move there would apply to his twatness. However I think the one brain cell he does have would realise it wouldn't do him any good really.

 

Also Keane was quick to get rid of the video stars which would suggest his attitude to troublemakers is more from the Ferguson school of management than the HTL/LM one.

I believe we did bid for Crouch but if I remember correctly it was when he was at Portsmouth, or on loan at Norwich or possibly both.  As Reid singled him out for the Quinn role but at the time neither Portsmouth or Villa wanted to let him go.

Peter

Crouch\Striker\Southampton\3m - Has played well this season, but has done nothing previously. Why waste money on a player like this, when we already have big Kyler. Thanks, but no thanks.

 

 

Oops. :lol:

 

:lol:

I thought we were after him earlier than that.  Sunderland Mad are possibly the worst site I've come across for news, and judging players as well obviously.

The bit in bold shows your lack of understanding of what people have been saying about managing players, hardly surprising though.

 

Ferguson is fantastic at man management and it's his methods I agree with, ie he put up with a difficult personality in Keane because he knew how important he was to his team. :idiot2:
