Maguire Wants A Start

May 14, 2019

Chris Maguire is hoping that he did enough against Pompey on Saturday to convince Jack Ross that he should start the second leg on Thursday. “That’s all you can do when you’re a sub,” said Maguire. “You’ve got to come on and make your mark or try and help the team out and to come on and get the winner and the way it went in, I’m obviously delighted. The main thing is that we’ve got the win that we needed. There’s two ways you can go about it, you can feel sorry for yourself and then when you get the opportunity you’re not quite at it or you can go out and prove your point. I wasn’t happy but I knew I would get the chance to get on and I felt I showed the fans and the manager I was in the right frame of mind. I felt I was ready to start, of course – I finished the game at Southend and I’ve felt since I came back that I’ve worked hard to get back to where I am but that’s the manager’s decision and I respect that,” Maguire commented. “It’s not a time to go and ask why. I’ve got to do the business when I get the nod and I feel that hopefully I’ve done that and proved to the manager I’ve done it. You’ve got to be professional. Yeah, I want to start every game but when you don’t you want to come on and make a point to say that I want to be in the team and hopefully I’ve done that. It’s games like this you live for,” added Maguire. “Every footballer wants to be involved in games like this and there’s no better way to do it (win promotion) than the play-offs. If you can win them, it’s a great occasion.”

 

In other news, we are apparently after Oldham Athletic defender George Edmundson, although Portsmouth, Fleetwood Town, Stoke City, Hull City and Preston North End and Rangers are also interested.

 

Following the rumours that Tony Coton has left the club, we are set to appoint former Celtic chief scout John Park as Director of Football.

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.
