Another Gray day for sorry Sunderland
Forget about six-pointers. This, according to a Sunderland fan buy canada goose parka uk on a midweek radio phone-in, was the definitive nine-pointer. Two sides, one with a penchant buy canada goose jacket cheap for shipping three goals or more a game, the other having failed to score in the Premiership since September, both looking to end a miserable sequence of five league defeats on the bounce with a win. Draws just won’t do when you’re this far adrift of the pack.
A combination of fog and the international break meant that this was Birmingham’s first outing since their last visit to the north east three weeks ago. On that occasion, they’d been worth at least a point, their undoing being an inability to turn attacks into shots, let alone goals. They put that right against Sunderland’s notoriously fragile backline.
Sunderland did show enough best mens canada goose jacket enthusiasm during the first period to canada goose coat 1000 bulbs match the likes of Emile buy canada goose jacket ebay Heskey and the returning David Dunn, though the sale visitors wasted two glorious chances to have gone in ahead at the break. The first saw Neil Kilkenny dither on the ball just inside the area with only Ben Alnwick to beat, allowing former Blue Gary Breen to make an excellent tackle. Then, with five minutes of canada goose coat 1000 calorie a day meal plan the half remaining, the unmarked Damien Johnson somehow contrived to give Sunderland a throw-on with a complete mis-hit from 12 yards out.
The Black Cats’ only genuine chance canada goose coat – victoria came when Jonathan Stead’s goal-bound effort after 33 minutes was deflected for a corner benefits of canada goose jacket by the sliding Muzzy Izzet. You know things are bad at a club when a player (Stead again) earns a generous round of applause just for beating one man and sending over a wayward cross.
If anything, the quality of the football – like the temperature – dipped after half-time, though Birmingham continued to create the better chances. Alnwick beat away a 25-yard screamer from substitute Walter Pandiani, while Jermaine Pennant’s cross from the right only required the slightest tap to end City’s goal draught.
Their endeavour finally paid off in the 68th minute. Pennant again made a nuisance of himself on the right, crossing for Pandiani to head goalwards. Alnwick produced another good save, but best canada goose jacket review the rebound fell to Julian Gray, who couldn’t miss.
You’d like to think Sunderland would have mounted one final push to try to salvage something – even a pointless point. But except for one Liam Lawrence curler, which forced a smart save from Vaesen, it never came. On average cost canada goose jacket this performance, they look doomed. Birmingham, on the other hand, might just have turned the corner.
Man of the match: Gary Breen – did all that he could to stem the tide.
