Assessing Sunderland’s newbies in the aftermath of the Norwich victory - how did they do?

Whilst it was a fantastic team performance which earned Sunderland the points against Norwich, the individual performances of some of our new signings were ultimately what made the difference. Grabban is finding his groove The fact Lewis Grabban managed to bag two very good goals against his old club tells its own story - this is a player who has a chip on his shoulder and a point to prove following some bad experiences in recent years, and his partnership up top with James Vaughan seems to be taking shape rapidly. Grabban’s reading of the game allowed him to get on the end of Vaughan’s...

Sunderland vs Bury in the Carabao Cup: Shakers fans relishing Vaughan’s return to Gigg Lane

Long ball football?! I’m not entirely sure what our game plan going into yesterday’s match with Hartlepool actually was but the football was not pretty at all.
