Another dismal day, another dire turn up to a “must win” game and a further slide into a precarious position at the foot of the table.
Unfortunately for me, simply answering ‘we can’t’ doesn’t make a good article when considering how SAFC can beat Liverpool tomorrow. As the dark clouds of inevitability approach Wearside’s horizon, games are fast running out and the goals tank seems all but empty. So how on earth are we going to outscore the league's top scorers on their own turf?
I wish that I was prepared for this kind of feeling when I was younger. Now, I don’t blame my Dad or anything but surely there are far more painless ways of spending your Saturday afternoon than this? Yeah, you’re right, we wouldn’t change it but can it stop being such a nightmare. Please? We have been talking about ‘massive three pointers’ for weeks and here we were again with box office seats for yet another Sunderland made capitulation. Here are some ratings…
With the relegation race heating up – so is the battle for prediction supremacy here at WAW (bear in mind it only start in the Southampton game and exempted cup ties). A flood of optimism coming your way, in order of points accumulated so far.
Like all of our games from now until the end of the season – this game is huge. Lose and we pile even more pressure onto our tepid home form, win and the light might just be within reach. So how should we approach tomorrow’s game? Here are three tactical aspects I think could get SAFC three points at Carrow Road…
If it wasn't ominous before, it certainly is after SAFC squandered yet another 6-pointer with an inept performance against a team that looked relegation certainties before Tony Pulis, who since has them battling hard.
The Premier League is back for SAFC and we’ve taken the opportunity to try and predict what will happen today. We’re not an optimistic bunch with only one predicting a home win…good thing we’re usually wrong!
Today was crucial in terms of whether or not we stay in this league. Sadly for us we just weren't able to win a home game against a side down there with us - again.
A couple of weeks ago I made an extravagant claim* (as I do) that SAFC would not lose to Hull again after dropping six points to them this season but little did I know that the next time we would play them would be so soon.
Had SAFC not gifted Hull a victory over us for the third time in a row and pulled off the win, we'd have League One Sheffield United and possibly Championship Wigan Athletic between us and Europe (and maybe even a cup win). Unfortunately, Gus Poyet made the wrong decisions regarding team selection but surely wasn’t to expect such an awful performance with one or two spectacularly bad contributions. Nothing for the optimists to read here!
