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

Quinn Says 'Prove You Have The Passion'

A furious Niall Quinn has challenged the players to prove to the fans that they have the passion, and are up for the fight, to avoid relegation.

The Sunderland chairman has joined a band of people to openly admit that the players let the fans, and the club, down on Saturday following a poor performance in the 3-0 defeat at West Brom and Quinn has now called for a response against FA Cup Finalist Everton at the Stadium of Light on Sunday: 'We had a very, very poor game on Saturday,' Quinn told Sky Sports News. 'Our fans went home very, very unhappy but prior to that we played two smashing games at home so the players know what they have to do next Sunday against Everton. '

The Irishman, who knows enough about the Sunderland faithful not only from being the clubs chairman but also of course from his playing days with the club, knows that if the players give everything that is all that is asked and that's what he is demanding, adding: 'Sunderland fans want one thing, they will forgive anything. I saw them clap their manager for two hours at Maine Road one time many years ago when they got relegated, because he had a team that gave everything.

'Sunderland fans just want to see the team give genuine effort, genuine passion and run until they drop and that's what we have got to do for the next few games. They didn't do that on Saturday but they know they will have to do it next Sunday.'

40 points should be enough to keep teams up this season and this is something that Quinn is looking for the Black Cats to get and as quickly as possible, but do you think Sunderland can do this?
