Blair Adams: Coventry loan switch

The 21-year-old, who has been capped twice by England Under-20's, came through the Sunderland Academy under Kevin Ball and was awarded a first-team squad number in the 2010/11 season.

Adams has also had loan spells at Brentford and Northampton but is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Black Cats.

Robins said: "We're delighted to have him. He's a young player who's keen to do well and keen to make his mark.

"Sunderland have helped us out massively in the way they have pushed this through so we have to thank them for that because there was a lot of interest in him but it's a big step for him and hopefully he can fulfil his potential over the period we have him.

"He'll get forward for us, it gives us another option at left-back but he's played at left wing as well so there is that option to move him up one. He's a solid youngster and he's been working under Kevin Ball at Sunderland for quite a while and Kevin is a hard task master so I'm looking forward to working with him."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
