Sunderland Need Pace And A Right-Back!

The window is closed, and we have to settle with what we have.

Sunderland legend Gary Rowell would have liked to have seen Martin O'Neill sign "a player with pace and a right back".

Gary Rowell (talking to the Sunderland Echo): "Personally, I was hoping we could get more signings in on deadline day than we did.

"But in the end we had to settle for only Danny Graham following in Alfred N’Diaye and Kader Mangane as our January acquisitions.

"All three have height and physical power that we’ve previous lacked and in my view they’re useful players to have in.

"I think most of our fans would agree that at times this season, we’ve appeared light-weight.

"I would though, have liked to see one or two more issues addressed.

"I think we still need a bit more pace in the team, and I would have liked to see the signing of a right-back."
