Quinn: The Investigation Begins!

Quinn: The Investigation Begins!

Niall Quinn and Steve Walton addressed the supports branch down London before the team disposed of West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

Walton said: 'We believe and are optimistic that this club will be a little bit better every season.

"That`s all I ask of any part of the business or club: to try to do better this year than last."

Niall Quinn is baffled like all of us about the injury problems and hopes his plans with Steve Bruce go well this summer.

Quinn added: 'We`re building something to ensure longevity of success.

"We don`t intend to be a 'flash in the pan` club where we do it for one year but then struggle afterwards.

"Take Portsmouth for instance, a fantastic team Harry Redknapp put together that went on to win the FA Cup in 2008 and was a great moment in their history.

"But, I tell you they`re paying for it now.

"People want success at this club yesterday and while nothing would give me more pleasure than to give you a second major cup since World War Two, we need to get there in time.

"We know we`ve been derailed by injuries throughout the season and there is a thought in everyone`s mind about 'what might have been` over the last nine months for Sunderland.

"But I assure you, no quarter will be given or stone left unturned until we find out what has gone wrong over the last three months.

"And mark my words, the things that need to change will do so."
