  • Wed, 12 Jan 2022 15:00:00 +0000: Attack or defence? What should a new manager prioritise to keep a team up? - Sunderland | The Guardian

    Scoring more goals rather than conceding fewer seems to be the best way to avoid relegation – with one notable exception

    By Chris Evans for The Set Pieces

    Club that are seemingly slipping towards relegation love nothing more than a shiny new manager to rejuvenate their fortunes. Three of the bottom four sides in the Premier League have welcomed a new manager into their dugout this season. And it’s already clear they have different priorities.

    After taking over at Watford, Claudio Ranieri initially appeared to favour scoring goals over defensive frugality, while Dean Smith is grappling with problems at both ends for Norwich after looking as if he was shoring things up at the back. As for Eddie Howe, success for him will probably be dictated by Newcastle’s performance in the January transfer market. But what does recent Premier League history suggest is the area a new manager should address to give his side the best chance of survival? The stats suggest scoring goals is the key.

  • Tue, 11 Jan 2022 23:37:57 +0000: Football League roundup: Fulham up to second after 7-0 thrashing of Reading - Sunderland | The Guardian
    • Harry Wilson and Aleksandar Mitrovic both score twice in rout
    • Ten-man Sunderland suffer shock loss to Lincoln in League One

    Fulham moved back into second place in the Championship and an automatic promotion slot with a thumping 7-0 victory at relegation-threatened Reading.

    Marco Silva’s men took a 13th-minute lead through Harry Wilson and stretched it on the brink of half-time with an Aleksandar Mitrovic penalty. Fulham proved rampant in the second period, as Reading collapsed, with further goals from Wilson, Kenny Tete, Neeskens Kebano, Tosin Adarabioyo and Mitrovic again.

  • Tue, 21 Dec 2021 22:11:23 +0000: Arsenal 5-1 Sunderland: Carabao Cup quarter-final – as it happened - Sunderland | The Guardian

    Eddie Nketiah scored a hat-trick before Charlie Patino became the youngest Gunner to score on his debut since Jon Sammels in 1963

    5 min: Stewart tries to burst into the Arsenal box down the inside-left channel. He gets past Elneny, then trips over. He wants a penalty, but he’s not getting one, and there’s no VAR tonight, so that’s that. There didn’t seem to be a whole load of contact.

    3 min: Sunderland take the first shot in anger. Gooch crosses from the left. The ball’s not cleared, and falls to Pritchard, who swivels cutely to the left of the D and sends a fairly weak effort straight at Leno.

  • Tue, 21 Dec 2021 21:51:26 +0000: Nketiah fires hat-trick and Patino adds gloss to Arsenal’s rout of Sunderland - Sunderland | The Guardian

    Remember the name? The vast majority inside the Emirates Stadium already knew it. They even had a song prepared when Charlie Patino, an 18-year-old playmaker who has attained near-mythical status with his performances in youth football, limbered up beside the halfway line and waited for the ball to go dead.

    He made his entrance to rapturous applause and, 10 minutes later, had raised the roof with a smartly taken goal on his senior debut; if everything goes to plan it will be a quiz question a few years down the line and Sunderland, enterprising but well beaten, may not overly mind being the answer.

    The midfielder never made it in north London but will renew an old rivalry in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals

    Lee Johnson has identified Alex Pritchard as the playmaker capable of “unlocking doors” for Sunderland as they strive not only to escape League One but to indulge in the sort of cup giant-killing run rarely seen in these parts since 1973.

    “Alex can do things most people at this level aren’t capable of,” says his manager as Pritchard prepares to remind a wider audience of what might have been on Tuesday night at Arsenal. “He can pull the strings for us.”
