I saw that, got very excited when Boji scored.

Its way too early for him. I think we can win this. Although our away form has been woeful recently (or most of the season), so I'd take a draw. Onuoha and Richards are out, which isn't great. A slowish defence of Dunne and Corluka will at least combat Jones aerially. Hopefully they won;t kick us too much, as we've got a few flair players in the side. I'd go for this line-up and hope for 2-1:

-------------Hart
Sun---Corluka---Dunne---Garrido
------Johnson---Hamann
Castillo------Elano-----Petrov
-----------Benjani:

Subs: Schmeichel, Ball, Ireland, Vassell, Caicedo.

Fantastic, 2-1. Showed great character to get a second after they drew level. After no penalties all season in the EPL, we have two in two games. Elano once again scores, and Vassell gets another after coming on as a sub. Sturridge, on as a sub, got the penalty, and then was subbed. Any news? We need him fit for the youth cup final on wednesday.

I can make a short summary of it for you.

Sunderland played slightly better than you but one of your players dived in the box and the ref was Mike Riley. At the end of it you still managed to win with a missed shot by Vassell. Impressive win.
I suggest you don't start your own wine Felipe because such sour grapes will make it taste awful.

So what if we weren't the better side? Every team gets a bit of luck, with results, Sunderland included. You can criticise us all you like but at least we put the ball on the floor rather than Sunderland's route one approach. I knowQuinn is the chairman, but surely he doesn't have that much influence does he? Whatever man, your team kicked us all game. If thats playing better, then I reckon you'd enjoy watching Hurling.

Sturridge didnt dive... he got clipped and running at that speed its enough to make you fall over... was unintentional but the Sunderland defender though of course, but it still happened. Also Vassell even though he scored, still showed how crappy he is with the way he hit the shot, but never mind he won the 3 points for the game :D City needed that. Hopefully now a decent end of season run.
Come on Deano, most of Bianchi's goals were shinned in for Reggina last season. If Rolando scored that you'd have praised him for being in the position ;)

Since coming into the team Vassell has done well to get into scoring positions and grab a fair few goals from the wing. I'm sure his goals to minutes ratio is fairly good when you compare it with players like Kuyt, Young and Diouf, ie mid table winger-strikers who cut inside. I think he's finished as a striker now but has been re-invented as a winger.

Beg Pardon? You spent in the same region as us. Whilst we are 8th, we were woeful last season, and desperate to stay up. When the takeover happened, most people had no idea about who we'd signed, and wanted to just consolidate. If we hadn't had the marvellous start to the season we did, but were around 8th still, we'd be viewing this season as a success and I think City fans need to remember where we've come from the past few seasons and stay realistic.
