Only six days after yet another humiliating Newcastle defeat to Sunderland, Alan Pardew was the next visitor at the Stadium of Light.

You could have wrote the script.

After 4 goals in only 14 second-half minutes, the Sunderland fans deserted by their thousands with still half an hour left.

A last minute goal by Connor Wickham scant consolation for our local rivals.

The last three home games for the mackems reads:

Sunderland 0 Aston Villa 4

Sunderland 1 Newcastle 0

Sunderland 1 Crystal Palace 4

The thing is as well, in reality Sunderland could have easily beaten Newcastle by three or four.

This calendar year, Sunderland have won only one other home match. That 2-0 win over Burnley is the only other Premier League match at the Stadium of Light where they have scored a goal since a 3-1 home defeat by Hull on Boxing Day.

In their last 22 Premier League matches, Sunderland have only won 3 matches, 2 of those were against Newcastle…

Sunderland are useless and currently Newcastle are even worse, that is how bad things are at St. James’ Park.

I don’t whether to laugh or cry.

The thought of Alan Pardew’s face on Match of The Day is something that I might just want to avoid.
