'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Manager Reaction @ Stoke

Sunderland`s loss to Stoke in the Premier League left their manager wishing he had made more changes to the side that beat Newcastle last Saturday.

Sunderland lost the game to a Recardo Fulller goal after he got on the end of a Rory Delap throw in.

Keane told safc.com "Their keeper had one save to make, in the second half from Kenwyne Jones."

"You have to earn the right to win a game of football and we didn't do that. We started badly and we knew it was going to be a long night."

"We had a decent spell just after half-time, and then after we had gone behind but it was too late by then."

"I made one change - maybe it should have been a few more."

"We had plenty of time to recover from the Newcastle game. When you start a game as slowly as we did, you are inviting trouble."

"Our passing was poor, that was the biggest disappointment, our movement was poor and we didn't express ourselves. It was probably our worst performance of the season."

"Bardo has done well and I decided to play him, maybe I should have made a few more changes. We never performed and we deserved nothing from the game, no excuses."

"The one bonus would be Kenwyne - he looked sharp, both going forward and defensively, he would be the big plus."

"He's making it hard for me to leave him out. How close is Kenwyne to a start? About two-and-a-half days."

Vital Sunderland Says

The players have failed to perform yet again against a team we should be beating away from home. Stoke out fought us and deserved all the points. But that doesn`t hide that fact that we failed to cause them as many problems as the caused us.

Maybe it could have been better, Roy, if it hadn't been a game between Chelsea and Sunderland. Honestly it's a bit much when a team has been totally outclassed for the manager to try to pass the blame onto others. No blame, Roy. just no clue
