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."

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
