Prized Noble proves a point
After the revelation that it was Ryan Noble`s decision to cut short his loan spell stuck on the bench at Watford and return to Sunderland, you just knew he`d be straight back on the goal hunt in the North East.
Noble, who joined amid of fanfare of 'ohhh, looks interesting` - only for our hopes to be dashed when Malky Mackay admitted he was only here "for the experience" - never got a near a sniff of match action at Vicarage Road to display his amazing goal scoring instincts (with the Hornets choosing instead to persist with that unconvincing lump labelled 'Hendo`)
And wouldn`t you know - Young Ryan only comes off the bench for the Black Cats reserves and scores the winner in the victory over Burnley - proving 1 thing… play him and he will find the net.
Sunderland reserve team gaffer Keith Bertschin was straight onto the Mackam`s 'fficial site stating "I put Ryan on and he gave us a cutting edge. He looked hungry to play, nice and sharp and he took his goal really well".
It would have been nice had Malky given himself the chance to utter the said same statement - BUT NO!
