Richardson will lead Sunderland to greater glory

As a Roy Keane fan (obviously), I rooted for Sunderland last season and will be following them again this season in the Premiership. For Sunderland fans these are days filled with optimism, and there’s every reason to expect a Reading-like season for Roy Keane’s men.

However, it would be remiss of me as a football blogger and owner of a football news blog if I didn’t comment on the big money (for Sunderland) signings of Michael Chopra and Kieran Richardson.

Chopra is a competent striker who will give Sunderland a clinical presence up front – however for Sunderland to do anything against the big sides they will be relying on their creative players, Carlos Edwards and Kieran Richardson.

At 5m, Manchester United fans will snicker and giggle and cherish this moment as one of their rare moments when they’ve made a profit on a player.

Richardson for 5m? Do you want a blow job with that?

Seriously, it IS that bad. United fans don’t like Richardson at all.

I think that’s unfair – he has never had the extended spell in the side and he needs day-in day-out football to develop his talents and turn into an attacking winger / midfielder that he’s shown signs of being.

If Sunderland stay up in the Premiership, Richardson could have a big role in that.

Good purchase, Mr Keane, but don’t mind us as we laugh all the way to the bank. Good luck next season.
