International Duty Roundup, Lamine Kone Nearly Kills A Man
Lamine Kone, who is 30 kilograms heavier than him, completely beat him [Doumbia] and destroyed him with his elbow.
He is extremely fast for his age, and it has done that he has been a bit exceptional. Technically talented, good at dribbling. Then, he is also very athletic, he can jump high and nod, bicycle kick, turn somersaults the throw, and, not least, score. Just because he's so athletic is probably the biggest reason why he has come so far.
Sunderland Launch Positive Offensive
The spirit here has always been good to be honest, That is not the problem. It has always been good.
Scot Moyes, joked to the watching media: "Youz should be joining in — it's the only way to keep the cold out!"
The 53-year-old - who has a smile on his face throughout - doesn’t have much to complain about, though, with the players generally meeting his high standards.
Results on the pitch have been disappointing, to say the least, with Sunderland currently propping up the rest of the Premier League table after their annual poor start to the new campaign. But that doesn’t seem to have dented confidence too much, if the atmosphere at the training ground is anything to go by.
Moyes and his coaching staff, which includes Robbie Stockdale and Paul Bracewell, are in good spirits.
