Roy Keane's Sunderland, so far, not so good, in the summer transfer window...

If I were a Sunderland fan right now I'd be quite concerned about the lack of progress with regard to the clubs efforts to sign some quality players this summer, because on the face of it, the Black Cats have a lot to do if they are to build a squad that is good enough to stay up in the Premier League next season.

Reports claimed that Keane was going to sign Preston's David Nugent, that did not happen, the Sunderland manager wanted to sign Jonny Evans from Manchester United, that did not happen (thankfully).

The former United skipper has just signed Russell Anderson, 28, a defender and Aberdeen's former skipper and his only other summer signing thus far is Greg Halford of Reading.

Keane is also being linked to Kieran Richardson of United, a player who hasn't been able to hold down a regular starting place at Old Trafford, added to which rumours have suggested that Keane and Kieran haven't always seen eye to eye. However, Richardson will no doubt be moving on and if Keane can turn him into a player then all well and good, right now though, the quality of Keane's summer signings so far are questionable.

Sunderland fans will be more anxious than most given the lack of genuine Premiership quality at the Stadium of Light.

Personally I wouldn't put a penny on Sunderland staying up next season, not at this precise moment in time anyway.

Sunderland's only saving grace will be that there might be worse teams that them, Wigan, Bolton, Derby, Man City, Fulham and Birmingham will all struggle next season.

Interesting times ahead.
