Sunderland manager Roy Keane was obviously disappointed with his side`s performance at local rivals Newcastle.
Michael Owen scored both the goals to heap misery on Sunderland Football club and their fans.
Keane told safc.com "I'm disappointed with the way we started and disappointed we couldn't get to half-time just 1-0 down."
"At this level you can't afford to give the goals away that we gave away."
"We made it very hard for ourselves, particularly with the second goal just before half-time. What we need to do is stop gifting teams goals."
"Newcastle will look at their first goal as a good goal but from our point of view it was poor, we have ourselves to blame."
"My players understood how important the game was. I'm not going to question my team's desire, we just gave away bad goals."
"In the second half, it would have been nice if we had scored one to make it interesting but it wasn't to be."
"We've got a lot of hard work ahead and that hasn't changed. It makes next weekend that more important."
"The injuries didn't help. We lost three players in the last two days but you can't make excuses. We gave the ball away cheaply for both goals and you get punished."
"I know they'll be disappointed but we have to bounce back. We've had a major set-back today and we have to get back at it next weekend."
"Michael's record speaks for itself. He's got more goals at international level than all my players put together but if you give away one or two chances you are going to get punished."
"I thought Kenwyne did OK, but OK is not good enough. We got some decent support up to him."
Vital Sunderland Says
A disappointing result where we failed to compete in the first half hopefully the player will redeem themselves against Boro next weekend.
