The most incredible realisation about this season is that we are still only four point from safety. Barnsley, Burton Albion and Birmingham are all genuinely nearly as bad as us. Unfortunately, nearly is not close enough as there is little chance of us passing any of them in the league, let alone all of them.

QPR's game plan was simple, just wait for Sunderland to gift them victory. They did nothing, Jason Steele was sent off because he was a moron in a routine situation, Lee Cattermole was Lee Cattermole leaving Eberechi Eze to find it, well, you insert you're own terrible pun. That being his first senior goal for QPR.

We've still got nine more games of this s***te.

Top Five

Bryan Oviedo (4.71)
George Honeyman (4.65)
Lee Camp (4.63)
Lamine Kone (4.58)
Adam Matthews (4.54)

Bottom Six
[[content.mid]]
Ovie Ejaria (3.98)
Aiden McGeady (3.75)
John O'Shea (3.68)
Jonny Williams (3.29)
Lee Cattermole (3.26)
Ashley Fletcher (2.66)

Worst Player - Jason 'oven-mitts' Steele (2.28)

Up there with one of the most hysterically bad moments in Sunderland goal keeping history. That history is made up prodominently on the trio of twits that have blundered their way through this awful season. 

After coming back in decent shape against Millwall, Steele even made it into the Football League team of the week. If that isn't enough to rekindle the confidence of a player, I'm not sure what is. The simple fact is that Steele is just a really, really bad goalkeeper and no amounts of confidence, steroid injections or massive gloves will hide that fact. With him suspended and Robbin Ruiter injured, Lee Camp is our only senior goalie - a player Chris Coleman has already said isn't in the right shape for first team football. Is it now that we try our chances with Max Stryjek? Not for me mind, but it is literally impossible for him to be any worse.

Man of the Match - Joel Asoro (5.31)

Despite Sunderland registering a blank in front of goal one of the front men earn top spot and it's Asoro once more. Why is that I hear you ask? Because he has an uncanny knack of combining genuine effort with genuine ability. Unfortunately, his efforts forward were supported by George Honeyman - with the attacking prowess of a fawn - and Ashley Fletcher, who needs no metaphors to describe how awful he is. Sorry Joel, sorry for ruining your football career but perhaps you will be one of the few to survive this mess.
