C'mon Sunderland! Score a goal!
No Sunderland... don't score.
i'll try to get some more pictures taken like I did with Marcus yesterday. Sunderland are going to get stuffed tonight, and since Sunderland are so poor, it should make for a very entertaining match (for me)
wish this game was being televised I love seeing Leeds rip apart lesser teams.
That's one of my favourite things as well!
Good thing there are 19 of them in the Premiership!
Not a Leeds fan per se, but they are a team I wouldn't mind winning the whole lot this year, especially after selling Rio. It would be so nice to see them stuff the team that just paid them 30 million!! Too bad my favorite Leeds man, Robbie Keane, is all but gone...and I really don't know why he was so wasted at Elland Road.
As for Sunderland...they need to stop being rumor mill fodder and actually sign someone! They have got a great striker in Phillips in need of a partner, some great mids in Arca, Reyna, and Kilbane, a good keeper...they just need someone to put a few goals away.
Maybe because he hasn't done squat while there.
Maybe because he hasn't been given a chance while there.
Any audio for today's game?
Both clubs websites'.
Reminder: no cross-contamination of scores as some of us are watching the Friedel tape after work.
Claudio starts. Back to 4-5-1 for Reid.
1. Sorensen, Thomas
2. Wright, Stephen
3. Gray, Michael
5. Babb, Phil
4. Reyna, Claudio
10. Phillips, Kevin
12. Bjorklund, Joachim
14. Butler, Thomas
16. McAteer, Jason
21. Thirlwell, Paul
Same 11 for Leeds as they've had the last few matches.
Sunderland's first chance...about 10 mins or so in...Reyna alone against Robinson from like 7 yards or so but its saved...
From the Sunderland text commentary:
"Sunderland's problem against Everton on Saturday, a game they should have won, was their failure to finish. And they were again guilty of in the 14th minute when Claudio Reyna went clean through but shot straight at Paul Robinson from 10 yards."
Sounds right, and that remains Sunderland's only chance now 30 mins in....
The 5-man midfield is containing Leeds on the positive side for the Black Cats...
0-0 30 mins in...
half-hour gone still scoreless, the reyna chance being the only real one so far
Half time still nil-nil
got to socceraudio.com if you want the live broadcast.
You can get the audio through safc.com also.
Sounds like a fairly even first half....best Sunderland chance was Reyna early in tight while Leeds' best chance came around the 40th minute on a Kewell header that went off the side netting...
McAteer makes it 1-0, Sunderland.
Kewell gives it up, Butler to Phillips, to McAteer. First goal for Sunderland this season.
Sunderland score! Jason McAteer just into the second half. First goal in league play this season.
Black Cats halfway to a early-season shocker....hopefully the 5-man midfield holds up.
Only took 3 league games to score...
Good to come home to find Sunderland up on Leeds.
Splarg should have some good pics hopefully.
DaCourt and Keane on, Bakke and Barmby off.
Three strikers for Leeds now. Smith, Viduka, and Keane.
Leeds brings on Robbie Keane and Dacourt for Bakke and Barmby...sounds like Keane's given and early lift.
55 in 1-0 Sunderland
