Strength in depth comes to mind so will that benefit Sunderland?

Haway Cam, what strength?
Are you referring to the "looks good on paper" kind of talk?

Using 5 substitutes might unsettle a team a bit.

There's times when Sunderland are totally lost and 5 fresh pair of legs could work.
This is going to be weird.
The funny thing is though that the Championship clubs can name 9 substitutes and play 5 but Leagues 1 and 2 can only name 7.
It's not that funny really is it :crybaby:
