Borini: Sunderland need fans

Fabio Borini: Takes on Norwich's Steven Whittaker on Saturday

The Black Cats produced an insipid display in their Premier League clash against the Canaries at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

They were only able to get four of their 18 shots on target during the 90 minutes, and Vito Mannone was forced to make several smart saves to deny the visitors at the other end.

With Sunderland bottom of the table at Christmas, the survival odds are stacked against them - although they were able to edge a little closer to safety at the weekend as the three teams above them all lost.

However, with tough festive fixtures to come at Everton and Cardiff before the visit of Aston Villa on New Year's Day, the pressure is clearly mounting.

Italian striker Borini told The Sun: "I'm angry because we want to win and we can't do it in the league.

"At home, we need to show more character and control to win. The fans need to stay with us.

"It's up to us if we stay up or not. The other teams don't win the games for us."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
