Gus Poyet and Sunderland need strong home stand starting with Burnley

The arrival of Jermain Defoe was exciting for Sunderland fans, but unless the Black Cats figure out how to get the striker quality service his presence is mere window dressing.

And so we arrive at the first six pointer of the season, as a stumbling Sunderland side take on a Burnley team that has had a couple of blips of its own recently. Goal difference separates the two in the Premier League table prior to this game and it is feasible that the same will apply at teatime on Saturday.

Sunderland looking for FA Cup inspiration to turn season around

Sunderland coach Gus Poyet has backed new signing Jermain Defoe to be a hit at the Stadium of Light.

After the disappointment of a narrow defeat at Tottenham last Saturday, Sunderland now find themselves in one of those cup ties that seems to pass people by -- a home draw against competent but hardly inspiring Championship opponents.

Ticket sales have been sluggish and a crowd that has usually been around 40,000 is more likely to be half that, despite the reduction in prices which seems obligatory in the early rounds of the FA Cup. The visitors' section is not likely to be over busy either.

Jermain Defoe denied a debut goal as Sunderland slip further into trouble

Jermain Defoe had a disappointing return to White Hart Lane as his Sunderland side slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Tottenham.

On a day when Jermain Defoe failed to maintain his record of always scoring on debuts, an out-of-favour Sunderland striker missed two chances that could have turned a 2-1 defeat into victory over Defoe's former club Tottenham.

Danny Graham, Defoe's substitute, twice found himself in good positions only for the excellent Hugo Lloris to deny him in the Spurs goal.

1. Defoe can't save Sunderland on his own

It may prove to be a gamble that pays off as the season develops, but the signing of Jermain Defoe from MLS side Toronto FC brought no instant reward for Sunderland.

On his return to White Hart Lane, the 32-year-old striker huffed and puffed, but to little effect. He left the pitch in the 75th minute, having first removed himself from the pocket of centre-back...

Jozy Altidore, Toronto FC to both benefit from Jermain Defoe swap

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth and Alexis Nunes weigh in on Jozy Altidore's return to MLS and how it could impact his game.

It came slightly later than expected, but as ESPNFC.com reported, Toronto FC officially announced Friday morning the signing of U.S. national team striker Jozy Altidore as part of a swap deal that sent former England forward Jermain Defoe to Premier League club Sunderland.

"Jozy is a special player, and checks off all of the boxes that we look for," TFC general manager Tim Bezbatchenko said in a statement. "We are excited to finalize this deal."

Lucky, too. A year after trumpeting the ballyhooed...

Defoe addition would be welcomed boost for Sunderland

Sunderland and Toronto FC have agreed to a deal to swap strikers, with Black Cats misfit Jozy Altidore heading to the MLS and 32-year-old England international Jermain Defoe heading back the other way.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet faces a tough challenge to ensure history does not repeat itself if the signing of Jermain Defoe is sealed in time for him to appear against Tottenham Hotspur, a team both the manager and the player served with distinction.

When Sunderland's last prolific striker, Darren Bent, returned to Spurs as a Sunderland player, he failed to score as his team went down 2-0 despite dominating the game.

Bent even missed a penalty. But in most games that season, five years ago, he...
