Beating Fulham and Manchester United – or wanting to – should be givens

Drinks from this brewery are on Jake. Maybe

It feels like close season.

Yet we have two games to play, a top 10 finish to fight for.

Can we look to Martin O’Neill and be assured the Lads are in no doubt as to the job expected of them at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon?

If Salut! Sunderland can go out and find two Fulham supporters – we only wanted one but it’s often the way – for the ”Who are You?” feature, Sunderland AFC can surely approach Fulham away as a game we should win.

There’ll be no need for external motivation when the Lads play Manchester United. Whether or not the Premier League title depends on it, players are bound to raise their game for such a match.

Suffice to say, Monsieur Salut is looking for six points from the final two games but will settle for four.

Oh, and say something clever, astute or witty enough below, on any football subject under the sun, and a prize may be yours …

  1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And God said, Let there be the Stadium of Light: and there was the Stadium of Light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Sunderland, and the darkness he called Newcastle. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

    And God said, Let there be a Football Association and let it divide the blessed teams from the not-so-blessed teams. And God made the Football Association divided the teams which were under the firmament from the teams which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament the Premiership. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

    And God said, Let the teams under the Premiership be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land the Championship; and the gathering together of the waters he called All Those Other Useless Divisions: and God saw that the Championship was good in parts and the rest of it was mainly bloody awful. And God said, Let the earth bring forth players, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth players, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good, except for the likes of Andy Gray and Greg Halford. And the evening and the morning were the third day.

    And God said, Let there be superstars in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be expensive signings and for seasons or a part thereof, and for days, and years: And God made dozens of overpaid superstars; the greater to rule the day, and the lesser to rule the night: he made the regular stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the Premiership to give light upon the earth. And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good, except for Wayne Rooney and a few others. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

    And God said, Let the lesser leagues bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowlers that may cause smaller players to fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, like Paul Gascoigne, and every living creature that moveth, some faster than others, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winger and fowler after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them with WAGS, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the shopping centres at weekends, and let fowls multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

    And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, referees, and creeping things who take dives, and linesmen of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the referees after his kind, and linesmen after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth and taketh dives after his kind: and God saw that it was good except Cristiano Ronaldo, who was a bit TOO good at diving. And God said, Let us make fans in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created fans in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it and sing songs and chant chants and fight each other: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth, especially when thou invadest the pitch. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat pies and sausage rolls and potato crisps and pork scratchings. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good, except for some of the meat pies. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

    Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made and went to the Stadium of Light. 3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made and the Cats had walloped the satanic Magpies 3-0.
