If nobody else comes in, fair enough played the right way , then these players should be good enough to beat the drop, a concern for me is will we score enough goals in the last 18 games, the scoring rate has to improve , if we want to stay up, who is going to get the goals for us.

Most good teams share the goals out. So would hope to see the midfield start helping out.

It may surprise you to know that the midfield has scored roughly double what the recognised strikers have.

Not really , Sow Agard as the recognised strikers have been woeful.

Really admire managements optimism if they think they are good enough, will admire their expertise and professionalism if they can get them both scoring.

Aside from the team as a whole having to score more goals, Sow really has to up his game for the remainder of the season. No matter how you look at it, he has underperformed. He makes Nicky Maynard look productive. Needs to be hitting close to double figures by the end of the season or he has been a waste of money.

Likewise Agard, really should be hitting close to double figures by the end of the season.

We've been shocking on the goals front. Our lowest ever scoring season in League One is 45 goals in 2005/06 when we were last relegated to League Two. We're at 29 now with 17 games left so will have to average around 1 goal scored per game just to match that.

We really need to be looking at a new 'first choice' striker in the summer, ideally on a permanent as well as a creative mid.

Bitterly disappointed with Sow, he was supposed to be the mega signing, The you won’t believe who we’ve signed type player.

I think Neilson over hyped him, because he doesn’t look anything special, another striker who can’t score, I had rather hoped we would sign another forward, that doesn’t look like materialising now,

Sincerely hope DM can get our strikers scoring and pretty bloody quick

It might not be.. Sunderland have just loaned out Ndong to Watford, meaning that if the rumours are true then Chuks Aneke will be signing for them. I really hope we turn the approach down but I really wouldnt count on it.

This.
I still think we need one more central striker on loan now before addressing it fully in the summer.
I know the injuries to Walsh and Golbourne changed our plans, but having 3 of the 5 loan slots filled by defenders is not ideal, as you'd think it was quality attacking talent that lower league clubs need to loan from higher levels more than solid defenders. Especially when two are filled by right-footed centre back as the first wasn't good enough.
That said, pleased with Ward and Tymon to cover the injuries. Just wished we could fire off Ebanks-Landell and bring in a striker.

Sunderland have zero funds for Aneke, regardless of the Ndong deal. Nothing to see here....
