Misfiring strikers set to go!

It was only a matter of time............

......before local lad Chris Brown was shown the exit door at The Stadium of Light by Roy Keane following his involvement in the "Stevie" video, it looks as though I was right when I suggested the players had made it easier for Keane to determine their futures. None of the four are now at the club as Keane has a clear out to make way for Antony Stokes.

It was announced by Sunderland AFC today that they had accepted offers from un-named clubs for Chris Brown and Jon Stead, and that the players had been given permission to enter into negotiations. Neither striker really set the world alight having contributed less than a handful of goals between them this season. Stead will be glad to get away and try and rebuild his career - he will NOT be going to Derby County according to the club, whilst Brown, who has shown a fair bit of promise needs to find a club he can mature with.

Meanwhile Kevin Smith has been loaned out to Dundee, managed by former Black Cat favourite Alex Rae, until the end of the season.

Perhaps these moves might encourage a sharper performance from the likes of Darryl Murphy and "Sleeves" Elliot, who have yet to flourish during this campaign.
