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 …

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

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 .
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.
You can have mine Eric. Eric,stop running away from me!!!
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.
Pathetic , can’t see us getting 10 points this season.
