THE Echo Jury of Sunderland supporters today paid tribute to the Black Cats’ fine victory at Bolton on Saturday.

David Metcalfe, standing in for Andrew Lee, wrote: “I requested a minimum of Pride and determination in the red and whiteshirt, and we showed all these qualities and more. The main plus for me was the togetherness of the team and supporters.

“We may have been slightly fortunate with the opening goal as Steed did commit a foul on the edge of our penalty area, and we did ride our luck at times - but who cares? The three points are important.

“Colback was extremely accomplanished and probably had his best Premier League match so far - I think there is more to come. Sess was also a threat throughout and seems to be finding a little form.

“Please someone tell Ferdinand that regular good performances with his red and white shirt ON will gain him popularity, not throwing his shirt in the crowd (when we win) and posing! And Muntari “kissing the badge” was just pure theatre.

“A lot of questions still remain unanswered: Have we improved over the last two seasons? Is the squad stronger?

But we still have a chance to finish in the Top 10 and must push to achieve this target.”
