The script was written for tonight and neither the mackems or the Newcastle connection let us down.

A terrible match that had West Ham much the better team despite Fat Sam’s dour tactics, both Kevin Nolan and Andy Carroll had to endure the wrath of eleven thousand empty seats at this relegation six pointer for the mackems.

A late rally wasn’t enough for Sunderland to save the match and in all likelihood their season, despite a consolation goal from Adam Johnson.

However, it could have been different if at 1-0 the mackems had got a penalty when ex-Mag Kevin Nolan cleared the ball in the box using his infamous funky chicken type celebration, right in front of the referee it nevertheless went unpunished.

The mackems are four points from safety and their next four matches are against Spurs, Everton, Manchester City and Chelsea.

If a certain idiot manager and team hadn’t gifted them six points this season then we would already be waving them goodbye to the Championship.
