Runs Down The Wing...

Aiden McGeady has been chatting about his injury frustrations, his future and how things are so much different at Sunderland compared to last season.

 

“I missed all of pre-season, got myself to a stage where I could run, and basically went straight back into training. I didn’t really have a mini pre-season and I think the manager did it the right way, he thought I’d gain more from training with the team than running on my own. Then again, it’s not quite as simple as, ‘Right, there’s you straight back in the team’. The lads have been playing well and there’s no guaranteed starters in this team. It’s down to me whenever I play to show the manager that I deserve to play. It’s been frustrating for me missing pre-season, because I’m watching the team playing well and I’m wanting to be part of it. But I’m getting there. We’ll see what happens. If I’m not starting or coming on, I’m getting older now and I’m not the type to be asking the manager why I’m not playing. I’ll take it as it comes and do my best whenever I’m called upon. The goal at the start of the season was to be up there,” he said. “At the moment, we’re just starting to build some momentum. We’re starting to turn those draws earlier in the season into victories. It’s definitely been chalk and cheese from last season,” he added. “I remember playing games here last season, playing 3-5-2 at home, we go a goal down and it seems almost impossible to come back from that. That’s how I felt anyway and I think a lot of other people did as well. Now, we’re tight at the back but we’ve got a lot of different attacking players, a lot of variations with players who can play anywhere across the front. It’s a good headache for the manager to have.”

At the back end of the 1980s, football fanzines began to sweep the country and in 1989 we were presented with a new vehicle on which to enjoy some of this ride – A Love Supreme. ALS was a place we could all go to celebrate and commiserate being a Sunderland fan. Win, lose or draw, the pages of the fanzine became solace for many of us as we stumbled our way through our day to day lives, punctuated by the ups and downs of more match days than any of us care to remember.
