These days Roy Keane and Sunderland seem to be taking a Panini sticker approach to the transfer market (“got, got, got, need, got”). Either that or they have drafted in Barry Fry to work behind the scenes because the Black Cats seem to be assembling a HUGE squad.

David Healy and Djibril Cisse are the latest additions to the mammoth squad. The first-team’s Wikipedia page looks like a substantial extract from the PFA directory with 44 players listed! Keano doesn’t plan on stopping there either. Anton Ferdinand and Stephen Ireland are still high on his wish list.
