Jake: 'rock bottom'

Jake: ‘rock bottom’

Monsieur Salut writes: I had a good stream and watched a poor Stoke side made to look efficient by as inept a display as I can recall (well at least since the last inept display). Pete Sixsmith had a tougher day, up early to travel to the Potteries and see yet another abysmal performance which, he said as the last seconds of stoppage time ticked away, suggested a team that will be adrift without a hope at the bottom come Christmas …

Jake: catch Sixer’s instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

October 15 Stoke City (2) 2 Sunderland (0) Another inadequate performance that offers little hope

October 1 Sunderland (0) 1 West Bromwich Albion (1) 1 Awful lot of cracks to paper over

September 24 Sunderland (1) 2 Crystal Palace (0) 3 Shambolic defending, barely of Wearside League quality

EFL Cup 3rd Round: September 21 QPR (0) 1 Sunderland (0) 2 *Paddy McNair our new Defoe? No but…

September 18: Tottenham Hotspur 1 (0) Sunderland 0 (0) Point lost thanks to traditional defensive howler

September 12 Sunderland 0 (0) Everton 3 (0) Torn apart in an abysmal second half

August 27. Southampton 1 (0) Sunderland 1 (0) Disappointing at the end, as ever here

August 24. EFL Cup 2nd Round: Sunderland 1 (0) Shrewsbury Town 0 (0) Poor game settled by an excellent goal

August 21: Sunderland 1 (0) Middlesbrough 2 (2) Another season of struggle on the cards

August 13: Man City (1) 2 Sunderland (0) 1 Held them well but tired legs told

    My 3 tickets for Southampton arrived just as the second goal went in. I was sorely tempted to run after the postie and tell him he’d got the address wrong. Thank God West Ham was sold out.

    I feel much the same. Before the match, I thought anyone predicting us to beat the drop was being highly optimistic. In light of this latest debacle, such an outlook is nothing short of delusional.

    If we’d had a long serving manager who’d ran out of ideas it would be time for a change . Injury’s aside , Moye’s transfer buisness has rendered a half decent team unfit for purpose , had he even watched our team before signing on ? Considering he’s a good mate’s with Allardyce , how could he have got it so spectacularly wrong ? No one could rescue us this season and changing our manager yet again would make us an even bigger laughing stock than we already are . I don’t have an answer and more worryingly those in charge don’t seem to have a clue .
