Martin O'Neill: Plans to pair his two big-money strikers together

Martin O'Neill: Plans to pair his two big-money strikers together

Fletcher has been a regular source of goals for the Black Cats since being snapped up in a big-money transfer from Wolves.

Graham was drafted in from Swansea during the January window to provide support, but has been used as a substitute so far.

It has been suggested that O'Neill is reluctant to tinker with a lone frontman approach, despite bolstering his ranks.

He insists that is not the case, with it his intention to unleash a two-pronged attack at some stage.

O'Neill said: "I don't think we have got one specific system - the two players can play together.

"I don't see that being a massive problem, but it is bound to take a little time."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
