Dick Advocaat is delighted with the improvement from Sunderland, but still looking to add three new faces…
After all the talk, anticipation and hope circling around Sunderland’s defensive reinforcements this summer, it was the return of John O’Shea at center-back that made the difference here. The Black Cats looked more solid and more competitive throughout. So whatever was said at the team meeting this week seems to be working. Boss Advocaat has said that he wants three more new players, but I suspect at least as many will be leaving before that happens. Danny Graham started upfront – Defoe’s third partner in three matches – but doesn’t look the answer. On the plus side, Jermain’s Defoe and Lens look sharp, carry a threat and linked-up well for the goal. Despite turning 33 in a few weeks, Defoe is still as good as many around the box and might be a decent value ‘third choice’ striker over the course of the season. Aug 24 - 3:42 AM
