So we have bought Mignolet, Al-Muhammadi, Riveros (pending visa), Bramble and Angeleri to improve our squad for this tough season.
Sunderland fans always expect a big name, especially after we have avoided the 'yo-yo' tag that many player has used as an excuse to avoid joining the Wearside club in the past. The big question on all the fans lips at the moment is can we splash the cash on a big name to push us to the next level?
Quinn and Short have both stated in the past that we have the money to attract the quality we have missed severly in the past but how much can we spend on one or possibly two big targets?
Charles N'Zogbia has said that he wants to move away from Wigan but can Bruce attract a player who is linked to Marseilles and Juventus this Summer? The fact we are linked to this type of player is encouraging and a sign of improvement but will we go the extra yard and sign the player for £8 to £10m?
It looks more likely also that Stephen Ireland will stay at Man City as he will be collecting a very large wage packet even if he is left on the bench, or even un-registered. If we want to push up the league we have to avoid the stigma of spending all of our money on one player and take a risk. These two players could change our style of play, lead to more goals and get us to bring even bigger players in the following seasons.
We took a massive risk on Darren Bent last season and he has became a Sunderland legend in the space of 38 games. He is a natural goalscorer and we have got exactly what we paid for in his attacking threat. Imagine how good he could be with some pace on the wings and drive from midfield to help increase his goal tally in 2010/11.
