John McCormick writes: I spent the afternoon in Whiston Hospital, a phone and internet free zone, so I had no idea of what was happening at Leicester. So far so good, you might think, but as we drove up, just as the teams came out, I thought back to the last time I was there. We were taken apart by a Liverpool team that ran at a poor defence and popped in three goals before we knew what had happened.
I hoped history wouldn’t repeat itself, but it looks like it did.
In those days it was “Martin’s musings” and our then manager said Liverpool were too strong for us and deserved to win the game.. In the three (is it only three) managers since has anything changed? Here’s what our latest leader says, in his letter to Colin and maybe one or two others…
Leicester 4 Sunderland 2
It was very disappointing, but Leicester were the better side, especially in the first half.
They took their chances and made the most of the possession that they had.
We were caught out and made mistakes that a team shouldn’t be making at this level.
We have to learn from this. I thought we looked a little more organised in the second half with [Steven] Fletcher up front.
There was no sharpness and the speed of the game was very slow, when the other team had the ball they were much quicker.
If you’re looking for positives, it’s that both strikers scored a goal.
I’m extremely disappointed for the fans, they came down to back us in their numbers and that was not a great performance for them.
