Dear Steve: we’re ugly

………………………………………………………………………… Dear

Sunderland have been rubbishing the weekend talk of Steve Bruce’s job being on the line with Martin O’Neill poised to take over. I am inclined to believe the club’s version, as filtered through the Sunderland Echo and Journal sports staff, that his job is – as of now at any rate – no more in danger than the Queen’s. But that doesn’t mean we’re all happy bunnies. This is not our first Dear Steve of the season. Andy Nichol is a stern critic of the way SAFC too often do things and would dearly like Steve to pay heed to his thoughts (adapted here from a message to the Blackcats list) as a nervy Sunday afternoon at Arsenal approaches …

Dear Steve,

I will be there – living in London I’d struggle to find an excuse. But the harsh fact is that we are not worth watching – workmanlike yes and, who knows, we may even grind out another 0-0, but with only Sessegnon to provide any hope of some creativity/flair it’ll be backs to the wall all afternoon.

No Bendtner either. We’re one-paced and lacking in width and God knows what formation you’ll be putting out.

I have been reduced to wondering out loud with the question: “4-6-0 anyone?”

Could we be in for a repeat of the Brighton debacle?

I am sorry, Steve, but regardless of where we finish this season, we’re one ugly team.

All the best,
