i do not get it..sunderland have got a good potentially very good forward in kenwyn jones, a world class keep in gordon,two quick wingers in richardson and edwards...a gifted cb in evans...plus decent reid and whitehead..even then they are struggling in a relegation battle...its going to be scrappy affair..hope chels will put in a performance and knock the stuffing in the first 20 minutes!!
