A Pajtim Kasami header from a corner in the second half secured the visitors the points but Di Canio says he is not concerned just yet.

Di Canio said: "One corner kick we concede they score from. It was a silly mistake and that was the difference. We played 80 minutes in the opposition half but we lost.

"If our new boys learn quick I am not worried. We were the only team to play football.

"Just because we played well doesn't really matter. We must do better in the final third though and be nasty and ferocious.

"Our new players must understand this and if they accept this after our first game then we can still do well this season."

Sunderland travel to Southampton in their next Premier League fixture.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
