Sunderland to learn from Gunners

Sunderland to learn from Gunners

Sunderland Chairman Niall Quinn has told the Sunderland players to enjoy the game on Sunday and show the impressive young guns Sunderland deserve to be in the Premier League.

Quinn told "It's going to be a tough task but it's what we've been aiming for, to be playing Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium is great"

"Arsenal are in dazzling form and you expect your goalkeeper and defenders to have a busy day but it's also a wonderful challenge for the players, to stick out their chests and perform on a great stage"

"They are doing something very good and it's a pleasure to go down there and play them but it doesn't mean we sit there and admire them. We're hoping to come away with people saying that we're worthy of our place in the Premier League."

Quinn is hoping to learn from the Gunners directors on Sunday he went on to say

"I'll be hunting for information from the Arsenal directors because the way they do it is the template for us all."

Quinn is right we have to go to Arsenal and give them a game not just admire the way they are playing. I just hope we are not on the end of a drubbing.

Good point from Quinny, Arsenal are the only team in the EPL that have found success the hard way. They balance their books, bring in young players for small transfer fees and a build a team rather than bringing in big name players for a fortune who can disrupt the dressing room/team morale. This is the blueprint for us to follow without doubt - give it time and who knows. As for this weekend I am hoping we can scrape a 1-1 draw (another late equaliser - I fancy McShane to power a header in from a corner for some reason). Realistically I think we will lose 1-0 but who knows, its a funny old game!
