Just backs up the point on how incredibly hard it is over there, one average game or worse and you could be back on the bench or out of the squad completely.
I thought at the time it was a pity that Simon Grayson left, he was doing a fine job at PNE, and that could only have been a finanacial move joining that basket case club Sunderland. These moves often unsettles players. Quick wiki check, Sunderland had 12 managers including caretakers since Roy Keane left at the end of 2008!
Spot on Mike. I don’t think Daryl will expect to start the next game. I thought his crossing and shooting were poor last night, but I did think he linked play with his team mates very well and always made himself available for a pass. He does need to find a higher consistency level.
