Jake: 'at least it wasn't 8-0, Rob'

Jake: ‘at least it wasn’t 8-0, Rob’

No fewer than 1,228 of the 21,460 crowd on a Wednesday night at St Mary’s were in the away end and you can bet a few more Sunderland supporters were dotted around other parts of the ground. And for what?  Rob Hutchison was among them and can tell you it wasn’t much: ‘Sterile, tame performance. Did any of the players want it? Sideways, misplaced passing all night long.’ Quite simply Sunderland, bottom the league without a win or – it increasingly seems – a hope, do not deserve this extraordinary support. Here are Rob’s one-word ratings …
Pickford 6 quiet
Jones 6 jones!
Kone 6 tidy
Papy 6 better
Pva 6 energetic
Ndong 5 wasteful
Khazri 6 tried
Watmore 6 grafted
Rodwell 5 irritating
McNair 5 quiet
Anichebe 6 huffed

Subs

Defo 6 unfortunate
Gooch 5 Brief

The boss

Moyes 4 turgid
