It’s getting difficult to know what to talk about now. Sometimes the podcast can be a bit more sprightly when we’ve lost. There’s less to moan about when we win. There’s a reason the football phone ins are always busier when teams are losing. Nobody wants to ring up and say how good things are, it’s boring. The podcast is a good chance for us to vent our spleen, but we’ve hit a brick wall.
There seems little point in even debating why things are going wrong. It seems it’s damaged beyond repair. Even Gus Poyet seems to have given up the ghost, and is now desperately trying to reshuffle his ridiculously rubbish pack. It really is scrape the barrel territory. But where does Gus go from here? When does he write it all off as a bad job and start planning for next year? The feeling among most supporters is that we’ve already gone. The team should probably keep going until there’s no mathematical possibility of survival, but they seem completely bereft of anything required to create a half decent football team.
Joining us this week was former Sunderland forward Martin Smith. We also had Everton writer David Fehily on the line. Fortunately two decent guests managed to rescue the podcast. If only we had to decent players to rescue our flailing Sunderland side.
