    Sure, but we want him out as well and being relegated probably won't change that. There is a lot more the the club than that fat (censored)

    tbh, we've never really recovered from that chunk of the season where half the first team were injured at once. Disappointing, but it's not like we've got huge Premiership pedigree - if we go down this year we'll deserve it, if we stay up we won't. Although the best possible result for my household is two losses for Sunderland and wins for Newcastle and Hull (the wife's a born-and-bred geordie)! Really don't expect to get that though.

    Well, the Mackems have got a couple of tough matches, but I really don't fancy us to beat Man Utd, even at home.

    That said, they'll probably have nothing to play for - there's every chance their 4th place will be confirmed tomorrow (and if it isn't the Mackems will be safe anyway ). A Hull team fighting for their life against a Man Utd playing an effectively dead rubber for them ... I'll clutch every straw I can get right now

    Keep clutching buddy. Tomorrow night you will witness Sunderland park the bus and nail the 1 point required for survival. Then you and the Toon can scrap it out.

    That bus is being well and truly parked by the sound of it. Lovely quote from the BBC webpage...
    Sunderland have set Arsenal a 10-man defensive puzzle and the Gunners can't solve it.

    Re: The end is near... (football relegation talk)

    of course parking the bus only works if you remember to close all the doors and windows, luggage bays and hatches on both sides. let's hope they remembered to batten everything down after the half time shake-up!

    Re: The end is near... (football relegation talk)

    Arsenal have been utterly disappointing throughout this season, with only Sanchez making their games bare-able to watch and that kind of sums it up really.

    What made me really laugh is that Newcastle released the 2015-16 kit... and it has an out of date Wonga logo on it. If you ever need evidence of a club being run on minimal investment... there it bloody is.

    Haven't really been watching but I've always felt Arsenal are inclined to try and pass it into the opponents net. That didn't really work last night (that happens when you have 10 men back the entire game) and to be honest, I think we deserve all credit. There was a few wobbles, but generally speaking we kept them 25-ish yards out, waited for a striker to get annoyed and hoof and lit Pants catch it and hoof it up the pitch. And we did that for 90 minutes.

    It was messy, it was scrappy, O'Shea, Pants and Coates had a great game. If I'm being honest I was thinking we could nick this, as Arsenal just didn't see us as able to attack for the first 60 minutes, then in the space of a few minutes, Fletcher had to goes and Van Aanholt had a shot (sadly with his weak foot).

    Now, it's all on you Newcastle. You can decide your future.

    Another interesting question is, who will be managing Sunderland come next season. I would like Dick, but I don't think his wife will let him. We need someone tried and tested, and not some risky new blood.

There was a few wobbles, but generally speaking we kept them 25-ish yards out, waited for a striker to get annoyed and hoof and lit Pants catch it and hoof it up the pitch. And we did that for 90 minutes.

    It was messy, it was scrappy, O'Shea, Pants and Coates had a great game.

    That's traditionally the football they play, but this season it hasn't worked and they have been found out way too many times. They are light years away from their best days which does make me a little disappointed because they have always been one of the crown jewels in English football. Now they seem to get that champions league position based on individual performances from one or two players in the squad. Given the money they spend, they should be fighting for the title every year.
    Starting to wonder if Wengar has passed his peak or if perhaps the game has changed around him and he doesn't know how to deal with it.

    I'm not sure who you guys should pick for the next coach either, but you definitely need to get out of this routine of plummeting down the table and sacking the manager in the last stint of the season so that the impact of a new manager carries you through till the next year. I actually thought Gus was alright, if he had had a bit more investment in the summer, perhaps he would have been alright.
