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

Borini Says Sunderland Are Staying Up.

Sunderland striker Fabio Borini has done that silly trick of saying that Sunderland are too good to go down.

That`s been said before at other clubs and we all know what happened, just because the side put in a good performance like they did against Chelsea doesn`t mean to say you can go around tempting fate.

Having said that, Borini does have a point that Sunderland are not the worst team in the league, results may not have been going our way early doors but the problem with the club has been identified and now he has gone, now the Black Cats have a decent manager and with the right signings over January, the lads have a good chance of getting out of the bit of bother they are in.

At the moment Sunderland are five points adrift from safety and Christmas is fast approaching.

'We don't feel like the worst team in the Premier League, because we are not the worst,' Borini told the Northern Echo.

'That is the mentality that we have to keep. We have to keep a winning mentality and know what we are capable of.

'If we play the way that we did against Chelsea, we won't get relegated. We do not deserve to be at the bottom. Playing like that against a top team was good, but the key will be doing it against our rivals at the bottom."


Tomorrow, high flying Spurs are in town before Sunderland make the trip to the capital to take on West Ham United, we could do with at least four points from the two games.
