Wigan Athletic Vs Sunderland on Saturday at the DW Stadium is building up into the seasons must win game just to ram the smugness of the wannabe big boys back where they belong.
Sunderland boss Stave Bruce knows how to work the press; we saw that in his time as Latics boss, he drops subtle hints about players he liked to sign and chases them relentlessly, Lee Cattermole for example, and he has now instilled into his players a superiority complex.
Sunderland full back, George McCartney, that classy defender, who by the way Bruce is after replacing, as been talking about how `easy` Saturdays game will be for the Wearsiders and how a win is inevitable.
Fashionable Sunderland, yeah right, travel to Lancashire thinking the game is already in the bag, well good for them, they will be in for a shock if they think it will be a stroll in the park
Speaking to the Northern Echo McCartney says: "This year we`ve beaten the top teams and we`re going into the Wigan game thinking it`s one of the easier matches. It`s certainly a game we should win."
The afore mentioned Northern Echo have joined in the Latics bashing by calling us one of the leagues lesser teams and unfashionable opposition, come on fellows, have you appointed Sunderland to take over the Geordie mantle? Remember what happened to them.
The North East for some reason sees itself as the bastion of football when in actual fact it`s the back end of nowhere, just one Premier League club testifies to that, keep the smugness up and you will soon become detested up and down the Premier League.
