A heroic defensive display saw Sunderland collect the point we so desperately needed to confirm Premier League football for 2015/16, frustrating an Arsenal side who threatened, but failed, to break hearts throughout. While O'Shea collected Man of the Match from Sky last night, it was far from a unanimous choice on Twitter, so who was your star man? It's time to have your say and rate the players below!
Sunderland win, jump up to 14th, however temporarily, and out of the relegation zone, overtaking Newcastle in the process. Oh, and Danny Graham scored too. All that really happened in what must’ve been Sunderland’s luckiest win in years. The luck was fully deserved however, after yet another spirited display from Dick Advocaat’s men, and now it’s your chance to rate the players.
Sunderland's 1-1 draw with Stoke City at the Britannia has divided opinion on Wearside. The optimist will say a point away from home is never a bad result, while we can take credit in the number of chances we created. Others, however, see the failure to take those chances as the final nail being placed so delicately onto the coffin. Which camp do you fall in? Rate the players below to have your say.
Somehow, for only the fourth time this season, Sunderland came back from a goal down to salvage a point, this time against relegation rivals Hull City. The miserable start was the opposite to what was needed, from players and manager alike, but substitutions proved to be key moments in this one. But can another slow start be forgiven? Have your say and rate the players below.
‘Dire’. ‘A joke’. ‘Dreadful’. ‘Absolutely pathetic’. ‘Appalling’. ‘Disgraceful’. ‘Bone idle’. ‘Ineffectual’. ‘Embarrassment’. ‘Relegation form’. ‘Sloppy’. ‘Clueless’. Those are just some of the ways our writers described the performance of the eleven that lined up last night against an awful QPR side in an awful run of form and lost. But now it’s your turn! Rate the players below* and let us know how you feel after another mind-numbing display.
It wasn't to be two league wins on the trot, but a draw was still a positive result. The balance of play was disappointing, we created very little. Here is your chance to rate the players' individual performances.
There was an overwhelmingly positive feeling upon leaving the Stadium of Light last night after Sunderland scored twice in an impressive display to beat a disappointing Burnley side. You’ve read our player ratings, so now it’s your turn. Could you pick a man of the match?
The new system experiment ended in defeat, however SAFC looked far more dangerous going forward and could be considered unlucky for both goals conceded. What did you make of the individual player performances? Time to have your say...
We don't get to see too many wins but SAFC managed to get into tonight's fourth round draw after edging Leeds. Here's your chance to rate the players.
I feel a bit weird about yesterday. The biggest positive, I hope, is that Gus has realised just how important Emanuele Giaccherini and, to lesser extent, Ricky Alvarez can be to us. Anyway, here is your chance to rate the players for the first time in 2015.
