Jake: ‘great strike from that PvA kid’

http://salutsunderland.com/2016/12/sixers-sevens-sunderland-1-0-watford-pvas-super-finish/

Monsieur Salut writes: as significant, almost, as the three precious points from this 1-0 win, was the vast improvement in the play of my man of the match Jason Denayer and the often (and rightly) criticised Adnan Januzaj. The goal came from a splendid Januzaj-Defoe-van Aanholt move and PvA’s finish was sublime. This is where you come to find Pete Sixsmith‘s instant seven-word verdict; there’ll be more to come on this match …

    Sorry to bang on about the same thing but today it seemed that most people stayed to the end and it showed. On Wednesday, more than 10,000 had gone when we were only 1 down which is disgraceful.
