So finally we are back on track hopefully no more players out of position.
Playing no strikers or a midfielder as a lone striker, surrendering to poor opposition and no more blame of fans expectations as a reason for defeat to new boys and most of all no more winless runs over winter time.
Wolves is an ideal place to start, their team is limited and has as much quality as Sheffield Wednesday at the moment, so on paper an easy win.
With optimism at an all time high and maybe the prospect of O’Neill being in charge come Sunday, the squad should use the fans getting behind them and go on the attack for the win.
Maybe stick Gardener in and Ji up with Bendtner or even Noble, the possibilities are numberless and never has there been a better time to really show what we can do glimpses were shown against Stoke earlier this season.
If we can create and TAKE the chances like against Wigan, the game will be over in 15 minutes.
Chelsea took them apart in one half and there’s no reason we can’t do the same as we begin to clean up Bruce’s mess.
I have high expectations once again and feel we can be at least 8th-14th come Christmas.
Let’s not forget the middle is tight as no one seems to want to stand out yet.
I’d like to see top 10 again, maybe a win against Newcastle now we have a manager who knows not to play one striker all the time!
I look forward to this new era!
Prediction: Wolves 0 Sunderland 3
