Three Amazing & three Awful things from Sunderland 0-2 Swansea

It's a great day all things considered. Whilst this miserable season is yet to conclude officially, never again will we have to watch some of the truly awful footballers we've endured this season. There was nothing negative about today. Who really cares about how many points or goals we manage to notch between now and the end of the season. Today was fantastic. Well, half of it.

 

Loads raised for Bradley
One of the few truly deserving of the shirt. It was fantastic to see the little fighter take centre stage at the SoL once more. I bought my program, many others did, Swansea fans raised some coin too and the 5th minute was an unbelievably uplifting moment.

I got six Peperamis
That's right, and I have photographic evidence. And I didn't pay for any of them. And I didn't steal any of them. And I ate everyone. Fantastic time to be alive.

Last time we'll see certain players
Not all of them played today and, of course there is nothing official about their exits just yet, but I can't wait for confirmation of the following wage-sapping 'footballers' leaving Sunderland;

- Fabio Borini
- Lamine Kone
- Fabio Borini
- Seb Larsson
- Fabio Borini
- Steven Pienaar
- Fabio Borini
- Darron Gibson
- Fabio Borini
- Joleon Lescott
- Fabio Borini
- Adnan Januzaj
- Fabio Borini


Of course, we're Sunderland fans and we can't have everything good. Good luck comes in threes, but so does bad luck.

Jack Rodwell is here to stay
The news that Rodwell will avoid the 40% wage drop which the rest of the squad will receive suggests that he is going nowhere this summer. It feels like Rodders has been bleeding the club dry for centuries, yet he is still contracted until 2019. Dear me.

That was an awful send off for JD
There is little doubt that today was Jermain Defoe's final appearance at the Stadium of Light in a Sunderland strip. That is enough to make you cry, but the performance was pitiful and the England striker barely had a sniff to score what would have been a fitting goal. The man has been a superb ambassador for the club, taking us into his heart, scoring huge goals and that's without mentioning just how much he has done for Bradley. What a guy. What. A. Guy.

David Moyes spoke
I've heard a few rumours that Ellis Short has confirmed Moyes will not be managing Sunderland next season, but with that nothing more than pub talk at present we're going to have to assume the Scot is here to stay. To make matters worse, he did that speaking thing again and effectively confirmed he ran away at full time due to chants from the crowd throughout his team's pathetic performance. Wish he'd carry on running to be fair. Forever.
