    Quite funny that all those cnuts who celebrated City's title win showed how loyal they are to their own club by staying at home and watching Challenge's all day Bullseye marathon.

    I think it just shows you the difference between International Management & club Management. There were many in the media pushing that Northern Irish manager Michael O'Neil on a few defensive performances at international level. Any fool can put 10 men behind a ball, but it is a bit different when you have to week after week play in a competitive league. O'Neil would have been worse than Coleman.

    How much of he blame does Moyes deserve for their current predicament?

    There was a reason he jumped ship.

    That's not necessarily true. O'Niell did really really well with Shamrock Rivers - winning 2 leagues back to back. Then moved to Northern Ireland job which is obviously a step up. Got respect from his squad and really achieved great things with NI who have a very limited squad. There's absolutely no reason to suggest he'd be a fish out of water somewhere like Sunderland.

    Don't forget Gibbo and Donald Love mate.

    Edit: A person with a name like Donald Love is destined to play in League One. It's all his fault.

    Yeah, international and club football are two different beasts. However, I don't really see it as "just putting 10 men behind the ball", and nothing else, but it's about being able to select a team and choose tactics for that one game coming after just a few days of training together. Some managers are really good at setting up a team and getting their message across in a very simple and workable fashion, while the typical club managers aren't necessarily succesful at international level.

    Feel sorry for Gibson. He was actually useful in the post-Ronaldo barren transfer days. Looked alright when he first got to Everton too.

    There's an obvious drink problem there. The only two times I've heard him in the last 18 months is when he was caught on video pissed on a night out saying all the Sunderland players are shite. And today, looking at a drink driving offense. This is a man who scored in the semi final of the Champions League. Poor guy wasnt exactly the next Pirlo or anything, but he should have been a useful Premiership player at least.

    Honestly thought he would do well there with him in charge, maybe they need to go and will for them to grow stronger and go upwards again.

    Still amazed how bitter some are on here about them celebrating City's title win, pathetic really. You do realise this is what fans of clubs do, wind each other up.

    As if things couldnt get any worse, a bloke in a Newcastle shirt won the crossbar challenge at halftime and celebrated like Alan Shearer. I swear, this stadium is cursed.

    First they copied The Poznan, now the empty seats. Maybe they think the lottery win is next.

    To be fair to O’Neil he took shamrock rovers, a part time Irish club on a good European run, playing good football. He knows how to cut his cloth.

    He’s got a drinking problem. The warning signs have been apparent for a while. He needs to get help.

    I remember him and Rooney getting dropped by Fergie a few years ago for turning up pissed at training, not surprised the pair of them then went on to get caught driving whilst over the limit.

    Don't dislike the club much as most, rather it happened to the Geordies. Still, hoping Moyes can repeat the trick with West Ham.

    Gibson has definitely got a drink problem, he's an alcoholic. I remember someone on this forum posting, a Scouser, saying that when he was at Everton it was not an uncommon sight to see him out drinking and even so drunk he'd be asleep in a bar/pub.

    The Secret Footballer has a bit of a rant about Sunderland in one of his books. Said that within the footballers circle, it's common knowledge that the club is a fecking shambles - players are paid over the odds and are not disciplined or monitored at all, it's like the lunatics running the asylum. They're allowed to do whatever the hell they like, such as going out boozing all the time.

    Amazing performance from them yesterday.

    Derby though...they are pretty much the Arsenal of the championship. From February every season they implode in mad fashion.

    Anyway don't get too excited by them up, their final two games are Fulham away and Wolves at home. :houllier:

    It was probably time for him to leave Wales but even so, Sunderland was a terrible choice. I realise my timing is a bit off with them having comfortably won yesterday but still.

    To be fair that Sunderland squad should be nowhere near the bottom of the championship. Mid table maybe? But there’s a lot of players in that squad who played in the Prem for years.

    Every goal Sunderland concede is the same. Every single week. All 3 today were pretty much from the playbook. Ball out wide, cross, no defenders jump and its in the net. Nobody in the Sunderland back 4 have the legs for this game anymore. What a way to come back down to earth after Friday night.

    The Moyes Effect..... whatever the opposite of genius is, that's him.

    (It may not be 100% his fault but heyho).

    Hope loads of Newcastle fans go and then do the Poznan when that shithole is relegated.
