Vital Quotes:

Stern John on his move from the Ricoh Arena to the Stadium of Light: 'Kevin Kyle at Coventry told me what a fantastic club Sunderland is, how big the crowds are and what a great place it is to be when things are going well.

'Hopefully things will continue to go as well as they have done recently for Sunderland and I will be able to help the club back into the Premiership.'

Adrian Heath on City bad-boys Robert Page and Michael Doyle: 'Their relationship might be a bit frosty for a while but nine times out of ten players get on with it after an incident like this.

'They have had a mad moment and they have to put it behind them and treat each other with respect.'
