This is the SAFC Forum. You may chat about Sunderland AFC here together with any other footballing matters. Obviously, the Black Cats are the main focus. However, this is basically our football lounge.

Stronger Defence Now

Post by thingamajig »

Sunderland are not letting many goals in nowadays.
Has those dark days of p*ss poor defending gone?
Them days of worrying about a counter attack and sucker punch like today are still there but you just get the feeling that Parky has got to grips there.

A little stronger but I think it's what's happening further up the field that is helping to relieve some pressure. Parkinson's tactics?

Or maybe the competition hasn't been as threatening recently. I guess we can only judge this over the rest of the season. On this form thought, we will make it.

Absolutely spot on Steve. Nature of the beast and I think "fickle" is the word of the day, seems apt. 👌

This could well be the case.
We have another test tomorrow night on the TV so we will all see how they have improved.
