Fear of Winning

From time to time everyone develops a fear of something, or other, that has no basis for logic. Sunderland at this moment in time are in my opinion scared to do, scared of the opposition, scared to make a mistake, scared to win.

We are paralysed by this fear. In life you need a little bit of jeopardy, some skin in the game. If the reward is three times greater you have to put three times the effort in and take a bloody chance. I did not go today, but sadly wasted my afternoon listening to slow torture on the radio. It’s time this club woke up and lifted itself out of its self-created self-pity and started to take responsibility. If not we will be in the football wilderness for years
