There is no denying that Sunderland are in a very difficult situation at the foot of the second tier table, with Chris Coleman’s men facing the ignominy of suffering back to back relegation’s following their demotion from the Premier League last season.
Mackems here in The Transfer Tavern remain hopeful that former Wales manager Coleman can turn their season around and drag them away from the bottom three, but having seen top scorer Lewis Grabban head back to parent club Bournemouth this month, the situation in the north east is looking extremely bleak. Having seen Grabban score thirteen of their twenty-nine league goals this season, fans are extremely worried that the 29-year-old’s departure will spell the end, and are desperate to see chairman Ellis Short stump up the money to fund a move for a new striker this month. Money is tight at The Stadium of Light following years of overspending in the Premier League, but our landlord may have the perfect suggestion to provide this ragged bunch with a glimmer of hope.
AFC Fylde striker Danny Rowe has continued his remarkable goal scoring form in the National League this semester following the club’s promotion from the National League North last season, leading the goal scoring charts with fifteen goals so far. However his record over the past three seasons is what must be brought to the attention of Sunderland fans. Thirty-one goals in all competitions in 2014-15, twenty-four league goals the following season, and fifty goals in all formats last season is a phenomenal return, and this player has proven that he knows how to find the back of the net. Plucking talent from the non-league is the hip thing to do these days in the Football League, and if Coleman can find the money to launch a bid for the 27-year-old, then there is an excellent chance this player could adjust to the demands of the higher level, and continue to find the back of the net. He’s certainly worth a punt with those stats.
