Santiago Vergini's bizarre own goal summed up an appalling day at the office for Sunderland as they were embarrassed 8-0 by Southampton.
If you haven't seen Vergini's own goal, check it out on Vine. The defender was under no pressure but smashed the ball in to his own net from 18 yards out to put Southampton 1-0 up after just 12 minutes. That set the tone for the match, as the Saints went on to score seven more goals through Graziano Pelle, Dusan Tadic, Jack Cork, Victor Wanyama, Sadio Mané and another comical own goal by Liam Bridcutt. Gus Poyet's men should be ashamed of the way they capitualted in the second half in particular, and have a lot of work to do if they are to avoid another relegation battle. Oct 18 - 12:20 PM

Sunderland have announced the re-signing of Argentine defender Santiago Vergini on loan from Estudianties in Argentina.

Vergini's first loan spell at Sunderland started in January of last season and was up and down as the player adjusted to the increased pace and quality of the Premier League. Apparently Guy Poyet liked the improvement he saw over the course of that loan spell because the Black Cats today elected to take the player on loan again for the entire 2014-15 season. This is a solid move but Sunderland will be hoping to bring in a couple more players before the transfer window closes.

Sunderland's January arrival Santiago Vergini could gain his first league start against Manchester City.

25-year-old Vergini is set for the ultimate baptism of fire if he is handed his first league start in place of the suspended West Brown. Manchester City's phenomenal attacking power at the Etihad has broken stronger defences than Sunderland's, so the Argentina international and his defensive partner John O'Shea have a huge challenge ahead of them.
