Jozy Altidore went the full 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw on the road to Southampton. It looked like Sunderland was going to leave St. Mary’s Stadium with three points before surrendering a goal in the 88th minute. Here are the highlights.
Absolutely no service to Jozy.
Yea, tough game for jozy. This is going to be a rough season for him with sunderlands lack of talent and possession. One clear cut opportunity and he squandered it terribly.
I think jozy will become good in the air tho, with the service he will get from giaccherini, johnson and larsson. Should have done better with both of his half chances tho, give him time tho.
Yeah, that was an odd game, I thought things would pick up for the Sunderland midfield once Southampton brought on the extra attacker but things just got worse.
Not sure about Di Canio’s tactics in that game, because they just seemed resigned to sitting back and countering. Hoping for a point or a smash and grab away from home. Were well on their way for the majority of the game.
Obviously, they still need more talent in midfield and Sessègnon has yet to gel with Jozy and Giaccherini. Still early in the season though, and Jozy was a stud in the first game.
di canios tactics are a bit of a worry, if nothing else than for jozy’s form. the system he played at AZ looked just like what the USMNT currently plays. Sunderland… not so much
