Sunderland 1 Pardew 4

9 years ago

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.
