Many Sunderland fans will be wondering what side will turn up to this weekend's clash against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

A fantastic performance against Arsenal at the Stadium of Light was followed by a horror show at Wigan Athletic's DW Stadium last weekend. I couldn't believe that it was the same team.

But, inconsistency has been apparent all season and it's something that Steve Bruce will have to address if Sunderland are to stay in the top eight of the Premier League table.

Despite having a small squad to choose from, it seems as though a different team turns up against the likes of Wigan, Burnley, Birmingham and Stoke.

If we can beat the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool, why can't we get anything from the teams below us on our travels? If Bruce is to get anything from Fulham this weekend, he'll need to ensure the right Sunderland team gets on the bus to London.

Lars Knutsen Lars Knutsen was born in Sunderland of Norwegian parents across the Wear from the SSOL back when shipbuilding not car manufacture was the city’s main industry. His first game was in 1968 and he has followed the Black Cats since then, with great memories of the 1973 FA Cup. He hopes the “yo-yo” days are over and defines supporting a team by whether the result affects your mood (but maybe not in the way portrayed in the book “Fever Pitch”!) so has been cheerful recently. He endured school in Newc**tle, has a Ph.D. in Chemistry, a Professorship at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, and works in the Pharma industry as a consultant Medicinal Chemist.
