It would be nice to get a win under our belt. What sort of a team Koeman puts out will be intriguing, to say the least. He knows this Sunderland game is very winnable. Will he put out a very strong side to try and get the ball rolling, or will he put out a weakened side and risk elimination? The side he does eventually put out on Wednesday will very likely be a pointer to how pressurised he's feeling atm. I'm going for a strong side, with players like Rooney and Michael Keane getting a deserved rest on the bench.

It'd be nice to get a win tonight and get that winning feeling for a change. Highlights this season, are a win against Stoke, a draw with City and qualification to the Europa league. It's been dire up till now. Fingers crossed, we'll start to turn the corner. We need a major injection of passion from the players tonight. There are no excuses, given the level of opposition.

There's not much to say about Niasse. "other than he's wasted in the U23's and should be available as an impact sub". I think Koeman is probably right, that he doesn't consider him good enough to start. He should be on the bench though, as he was fairly often at Hull.
