The 28-year-old made 16 starts for the Black Cats following his move from Juventus last summer, but he fell from favour and was last named in Gus Poyet's starting XI against Liverpool on 26 March.

The Italy international was one of a host of signings made by Paolo Di Canio, Poyet's predecessor in the Sunderland hotseat, but since the start of this year he has been mainly used as a substitute by the Uruguayan during the club's successful fight against relegation.

"I would like to play again here in the Premier League. I want to stay and do even better with the experience I have accumulated," declared Giaccherini, who scored four goals last season.

"I still have three years of contract. I'm fine here, but do not know what will happen. I will speak with Poyet and we will see."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

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.
