Manager Reaction @ Spurs

Manager Reaction @ Spurs

Sunderland manager Roy Keane was pleased with his side`s victory at White Heart Lane.

Sunderland won the fixture by two goals to one with Richardson and Cisse on target for the blackcats.

Keane told safc.com "It was important that we backed up last week's decent performance. I'm delighted for the players, maybe we had that bit of luck."

"There's no problem with Chimbonda, I have to try to pick the right team to get a result. Pascal and Carlos came down as part of the squad today. I've got to try to pick a team to win the game and it worked out OK."

"Tottenham caused us one or two problems but we stayed positive and we got our rewards, it was a great ball in by Murphy and is was a great header by Cisse."

"We're here to try to change the stats, we were aware that Sunderland had not won here in 30 years."

"I've not been here long and we're trying to change things - the mentality. I believe Sunderland fans came down here believing we could get a result, instead of hoping. I certainly did."

"We showed good mental strength to react after Tottenham scored. You have to have good options and I did today, I didn't have it last season."

"We took our chances, we stuck at it, people might have seen a different side to us. We are trying to be a bit more street-wise and we had a bit more steel. We were raw and innocent last season."

"Even when they equalised today, I knew we were up to the challenge."

"We're not dancing in the streets, we're trying to build that mentality where we want to come to these places and give them a game."

"I had no intentions of Cisse starting the game, he only had his first training session yesterday."

"I thought it would be good for him to sit on the bench and plug in to what we are about. But it's great for him to come on and score, he's hit the ground running."

"He has got a presence, like all good players, and I just felt he could contribute today. We've had a good result here but I'm convinced we can play better."


Vital Sunderland Says

A well deserved victory to put a terrible away record at Spurs to bed. Cisse was the change needed after we had conceded and to come on and make an instant impact was remarkable.

Well done, you deserved the win. If we had sold you Jenas instead of Steed it might have been a different story.

lol, we wouldnt have taken Jenas. Thanks for the others though, they look a different class to what we are used to (especially Steed). Hope you guys turn the corner soon (will probably come good once the Berba nonsense gets bottomed).
