Sunderland AFC vs AFC Wimbledon [15:00]

Sunderland take on AFC Wimbledon at the Stadium of Light this afternoon looking to climb back up the League One table.

The Black Cats fell to fifth last weekend due to not playing a game, which of course does mean they have games in hand.

Since the last game quite a lot has changed at the Stadium of Light. Top scorer Josh Maja has departed and arriving before Thursday's transfer deadline were Grant Leadbitter, Lewis Morgan, Kazaiah Sterling and Will Grigg.

All but Grigg could make their debuts in this one - with Grigg hopefully back in time for next weekend's trip to Oxford.

Can the Black Cats get their promotion hopes back on track?

Sunderland IX: McLaughlin; Matthews, Flanagan, Dunne, James; Leadbitter, Power; Gooch, Honeyman, McGeady; Wyke

Subs: Ruiter, McGeouch, O’Nien, Watmore, Baldwin, Morgan, Sterling


Grant Leadbitter was drafted straight into Sunderland’s starting line-up in place of Lee Cattermole, after rejoining his boyhood favourites from Middlesbrough this week.
And deadline day addition Lewis Morgan also made his debut having been brought into the starting line-up as a late replacement for Lynden Gooch.
On-loan Celtic man Morgan had originally been named on the bench.

The inclusion of the two new boys were among five changes Jack Ross made to the side that started the Black Cats’ last league outing at Scunthorpe United a fornight ago.
Skipper George Honeyman returned from injury and took the place of Chris Maguire, Adam Matthews came in at right-back instead of Luke O’Nien, and Charlie Wyke replaced the departed Josh Maja.

Another deadline day arrival, on-loan Spurs striker Kazaiah Sterling, was included on the bench.
But, as expected, their £4m signing from Wigan Athletic Will Grigg was not on the teamsheet having yet to train with the Black Cats.
AFC Wimbledon boss Wally Downes made five changes to the side that started their last league game, which ended in a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Fleetwood Town.

Scott Wagstaff, Kwesi Appiah, Steve Seddon, Dylan Connolly, and Anthony Wordsworth came into the side, in place of Paul Kalambayi, Anthony Hartigan, Jake Jervis, Andy Barcham, and Joe Pigott.

Afc Wimbledon will always be a draw for players because of their status. Sunderland aren't a true big club and their owners refuse to spend. The moment they lose a few of their shitty players they'll probably go back to being York City tier. The Del-boy effect can only last for so long.

Imagine handing your manager £100m to spend on players, watch him as he spends it on shit, sack him after watching him spending it on shit, attempt to poach another club's manager to the point where they actually sack him for showing interest back, hire an entirely different manager even though the one you want is now available, hand him an 18-month contract when you know you're going to sack him in 6, sack that guy and bring in the guy you want, hand that one £100m in the transfer window, and then sit around watching him spend it on shit too.

Be Mike Ashley.

He got Sunderland relegated with style, if he wasn't there they would have been relegated in August, it was only his utter genius that got them more than 1 point all season (official narrative do not question)
Everton only went to shit because another club showed interest in him, not his fault at all
Give him time and he would have made Manchester United champions.
