It has been a difficult week. Losing at Arsenal, by a single goal margin, was no disgrace. But another defeat, another starting line-up without a striker did generate more questions. We all know what sort of questions these might be.
And now we all know what is needed today at Bolton. The good news is that the evidence of comments from players in the build-up is that they know, too. Steve Bruce, more than anyone, knows. I won’t, just now, mention the result of straw poll conducted at the Blackcats list on Bruce In/Bruce Out.
So just read the Bolton “Who are You?”, which shows that Wanderers fans are just as anxious as us, navigate the site for other items you may have missed – including Pete Sixsmith’s trip to Orkney – and get behind Sunderland this afternoon, whether you are at the Reebok or anywhere else in the world.
Ha’way the Lads.
