Sunderland v Man City

Postby Conner99 » Wed Nov 06, 2013 9:05 pm

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet will be hoping his players can avoid they type of challenges that saw Lee Catttermole and Andrea Dossena sent off in the 1-0 loss at Hull . The win against Newcastle the previous week had seen Sunderland move of the bottom of the table ..they are still however a long way from safety and with a visit by in form Man City , Gus Poyet may need a performance from his team that is out of this world if he wants anything from the game .



Man City thrashed a feeble looking Norwich 7-0 at the Eitad and manager Manuel Pelligrini was understandably delighted , Man City have won every game at home in the league this season , lying 4th in the table at the moment a win against struggling Sunderland is a must .

I guess that Joe Hart will once again be left out which will mean that Man City once again play without any English players in their side.

The sooner that new FA boss Gregg Dyke and his commission get to work the better as this should not be allowed to happen and is a disgrace in my view.

Sunderland 1-3 Man City

I dislike the 'new' Man City, nothing like the old one which used to keep us entertained by spectacular failure and a revolving door policy with managers. They seem to have retained the revolving door policy with the managers, but are looking a very strong team at the moment. They were my tip for the title at the start of the season, and I'll stick with them though it gives me no pleasure. Sunderland 0 Man City 2

at home, for sure. however they've been very hit and miss away from home.

that said, Sunderland are crap and their manager is an odious little berk so i am hoping we see similar scenes to the Norwich game.

0-8

David Silva has been ruled out for 4 weeks with a calf injury so Pellegrini may have to actually select an English player for his side.

Did you know that Sunderland have won each of their last three Barclays Premier League home games against Manchester City by one goal to nil.

Any more comments or predictions?

don't expect them to do anything drastic....while having English players in your team is something to be proud off i think most fans could not give a monkeys who is in the team as long as they are winning.

Sunderland will do well to get anything from this game ....a draw would be a great result for them but i think a 2-1 win for Man City

I didn't know that Wes Brown had been out for nearly 2 years so an extra special day for him against City today.

just as i said, Man City are a shadow of themselves away from home.

disastrous dropping of points for them which will almost certainly see them suffer in the long run. far too many defeats far too early.

A weekend of coupon busting scores, however I think it is still too early to be writing off any club at the moment. I think City will come good and start climbing the table sooner rather than later. Sunderland will enjoy the moment I'm sure, but I suspect they will be fighting relegation towards the end of the season.
