    Yuval Seri: Has David Moyes Improved Sunderland?

    In the 2015/16 season, Sam Allardyce, the former West Ham and England manager, managed to keep Sunderland in the Premier League after many predicted that the side would have been relegated to the Championship alongside Aston Villa and Norwich City. After Allardyce took the England job (and got sacked after a few months in charge, but that's a story for another day), former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes took the helm at the club. Many put their faith in Moyes, both Sunderland and Premier League fans alike, but so far, their expectations have not been met. A prime example of this is Moyes' record in the Premier League. Even though the Black Cats are currently on a two-game winning streak (true to time of writing), Moyes has gotten his first win in the league after 11 games in charge. Allardyce, on the other hand, took only two games to get a win for Sunderland, and the win was a big one - a 3-0 victory over Newcastle United in the Tyne-Wear derby. Throughout their season, Sunderland have had 2 draws and 8 losses, with some of the losses coming due to upsets from their opponents. A good example of this is Sunderland's game versus Crystal Palace in the Stadium of Light on September 24. After 60 minutes, Sunderland were comfortably 2-0 up due to a pair of goals from the prolific goal-scorer (and Sunderland's most important player this season) Jermain Defoe. Less than a minute after, Joe Ledley pulled a goal back for the Eagles, and in the 76th minute and in the final minutes of extra time, James McArthur and Christian Benteke scored the second and third goal respectively in order to get the win for the London club and leave nothing for Moyes' side. A 3-0 loss to Everton at home on September 12th (from a Lukaku hat-trick) and a 4-1 demolition by the hands of Arsenal only add salt to the wounds of Sunderland's poor record. At the time of writing this article, Sunderland currently sit in 16th in ranking of the teams with most goals scored (with 12 goals to the club's name) and 5th in ranking of goals conceded (with 21 goals getting past the Black Cats' defense), as per the official Premier League website. Sunderland have managed to keep only one clean sheet this season so far, with that one coming in a 3-0 victory over Hull City on November 19 in the Stadium of Light. Then again, not all of the fault can be thrown at Moyes, and some does need to go to his men. With a roster of great defensive potential in players such as Papy Djilobodji, Jan Kirchhoff, Lamine Kone, Patrick van Aanholt and Didier Ndong, you'd expect that Sunderland would be able to keep their fair share of clean sheets, especially against supposedly weaker opposition, such as Middlesbrough and Bournemouth. As of their last two games, Sunderland's offensive game has improved quite a bit. Even though they have been able to score only 12 goals in the league so far this season, new signing Victor Anichebe has been on great form, scoring 3 goals in 4 appearances this season for the Black Cats. But, as we all know, Anichebe isn't the main man for Sunderland. Jermain Defoe is. The former Spurs man has proven himself extremely crucial for Sunderland both last season in their relegation battle and this season, and even though Sunderland currently rank 19th in the league table, Defoe isn't the one to blame. In his 12 appearances in the league, the former England international has registered 7 goals and 2 assists, an impressive tally for a player clearly a level above everyone else on his team. However, not everything is bad with the Sunderland team. Jordan Pickford has shown some outstanding performances this season, and has easily become Moyes' number one keeper for the side, ahead of keepers such as Vito Mannone and summer signing Mika. In addition to Pickford, Paddy McNair and Donald Love, both signed from Manchester United in the summer, can be easily developed into very solid defenders in the future and cement their place in the first team in a few years time. All-in-all, Sunderland's situation looks very bleak at the moment, and rightfully so, but the squad does possess great young talent in the likes of Pickford, McNair, Love and Duncan Watmore. All the aforementioned players can be developed, with the correct game time and training, into very solid players in the Premier League in just a few years time. Moyes hasn't done the best in terms of winning games and actual results, but he has set some sort of foundation for the future for the Black Cats, and the club needs to take advantage of that and build on it, as quickly as possible.

  12. Zidane, Ronaldinho and R9 mostly. I started watching football when I was a kid, around 2nd grade, maybe even before. I used to love RM and just the La Liga in general. I used to watch a ton of La Liga and Real Madrid games, and I remember watching Zizou dominate that CAM position along with Raul, R9 and Roberto Carlos. I also watched Barca a bunch, used to love Deco, Puyol, Xavi in his prime and just all the players. I started watching the Arsenal a few years ago, so I missed out on watching the likes of Pires, Henry, Bergkamp, Seaman, Ljungberg etc, but with the help of YT, I managed to watch them all play in such an amazing way.
  13. The break is sort of frustrating, seeing that I just want to watch PL football again, but it's always good to see Tomer Hemed get the goals in for us
