    Williamson and goufran, I’d have started ant and dec ahead of those two twits.

    Gouff the Gimp shows how low Nufc have become

  • amacdee

    WTF happened to “quieten the crowd in the first 15 minutes” ???? Carvew needs a good [email protected] if he thinks containment is the way to win this ?

  • Andgeo

    Goufran is completely anonymous as usual, what a waste of space

  • Andgeo

    And there was Williamson jumping aimlessly on the edge of the area to set up Defoe. What a pathetic showing from NUFC we havnt tested their keeper once.

    “AndyMac: Carver, how can you score if you haven’t got the ball?”
    Anyone like to answer that one ?

    Team selection straight from the Alan Pardew playbook.  Almost a 5-4-1, Perez isolated up front, long balls and everyone far too deep wondering why there is no out from defence and why the ball just keeps coming back at them.

    On the other side, Sunderland go in with 3 strikers in an offensive 4-3-3. Great goal to take the lead at half time, but they were all over us the whole half, and probably should have had more shots on target given their posession.

    Basically, one team went out to win, one team went out not to lose.  Pardew all over again.  Looking like it could be the same result too unless Carver pulls something out of the hat in the 2nd half.

    DownUnderMag  Carver knows no better. He had the chance to do something about the formation and silence the crowd early on but he just hasnt got the balls.

  • amacdee

    Took 58 minutes for Carver to realise Goof is a waste of a shirt !

  • amacdee

    78 minutes first shot on goal ! Are we playing a derby match or an 11 a side kickabout ?

  • PhilYare

    disgrace (again)

    Clueless spineless. Only one side went out to win. Ameobi said the other day about having “eggs for breakfast ” what he forgot to say was that they were Easter eggs. As for Mr JC MOTIVATOR. “Im a great motivator ” you’re clueless fook off. If we’d been playing a half decent side,They would have won by at least 6-0. P’s. Happy Easter.

  • PhilYare

    again its another waste of 60 minutes of football… straight out the pardew school of useless tactics. how refreshing it would have been to start with 3 forwards and this level of intensity would have been like this from the start

  • toon tony

    Are you watching the highlights already. !!

  • Andgeo

    Simply Appalling!! 2 shot at goal and took 77 minutes to get one on target. Por pedew like tactics, why not play Abeid ahead of gouffran, what a total waste of space. And bringing Armstrong on for 5 mins, whats the point. All those muppet suporters ive heard talking about ashey investing money in the summer, keep dreaming!! Its never gonna happen. MUGS not mags.

  • seanbomb72

    has the club changed its policy and are now trying to see how low down the table they can finish !!!

  • Andgeo

    seanbomb72  Maybe its to divert the attention away from the free advertising, stolen merchandising revenue or the unaccounted for £28.5m in last years accounts. They must be doing it on purpose because it would be impossible for Sunderland to keep winning against any other team. And hey, if we get relegated we will just end up owing fatty another £40m.
