Danny Graham: Admitted he has not been good enough for Sunderland

Graham has failed to score for Sunderland in nine games after becoming former manager Martin O'Neill's final signing at the Stadium of Light.

The 27-year-old has impressed in Sunderland's two victories against Newcastle and Everton and he is keen to build on those performances for the rest of the campaign.

"I will hold my hands up, in my first few games, my performances were not too good," Graham told the Sunderland Echo.

"However, I have set my standard now and hopefully I can maintain that."

Graham is confident he can fill the void left by Steven Fletcher's injury and score the goals to fire Sunderland to safety.

"It is unfortunate Steven got injured," added Graham.

"He has been a vital part of the club this season and scored 11 goals. It was a massive blow to the team.

"However, that gives opportunities to other people and you have to take them."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
