I know some have given up.
I know many just want it over.
But here in Coxhoe, despite all the problems, there is nowhere I would rather be on a match day than The Stadium of Light.


Play well, I am happy
Win, I am happy
Play bad, I enjoy the banter with fellow sufferers

It's all part and parcel IMO of supporting Sunderland.

Team news from BBC Live Text. Well Khazri starts as many of us have said he should and NO KONE with JOS returning. Let's see if it makes a difference. ack

Khazri did more in the first 45 mins than Januzai has done all season.
Two poor teams and a totally inept, incompetent, effin useless referee ended up as an entertaining game in that it had goals, sitters missed (N'dong take a bow), pathetic decisions by the officials and soe reasonable performances. 

Khazri by a country mile our best player. Playing to get away and who can blame him.
Gibson. Slower than almost everybody but sprayed some canny passes about.
Denayer, one mistake excepted is a decent footballer imo.

Accepted relegation so enjoyed today.

Sounded like the best game for months! Obviously Khazri was MOTM and showed what we have been missing due to Moyes stubbornness (??) or some other reason we are not party to. I know he is not the greatest at tracking back but, when we have been crying out for some creativity, his absence from the team has been mystifying.

In other thoughts, the referee was abysmal, even worse than normal for Mr Mariner. Gary Bennett and Nick Barnes, the commentators on radio, said Cattermole's yellow was very harsh considering it as the first tackle of the game and some of the fouls by West Ham that followed barely warranted a talking to by Mr Mariner. That meant Catts was hamstrung the whole game really and could not make a tackle. Benno said you could see Mariner was looking at Catts all the time like he couldn't wat to give him another yellow! Plus was it a foul on Anichebe before they went and scored their first? Should we have had at least one penalty? What happened to Billy Jones? Mind the ref also missed Anichebe fouling their keeper for our first goal so that evened it up a bit!

Anyway at least we managed some goals, even if Defoe seems to have lost his shooting boots, but sadly a point is not enough to stave off our relegation worries.

Never mind, for once I will look forward to the highlights later on Very Happy

Khazri's absence is a mystery to us all with many theories going round but who knows what the truth is.

Mariner was terrible but we played well and relegation is odds on but not a certainty, who knows what the future holds.
Defoe had a poor game but the team played well, despite not winning I really enjoyed it.

Off the ball seems to be Khazri's problem a fair few times he chased lost causes closing down players and leaving space for the other team to utilise. Thankfully today WHU could not do that but many others would.

SUNDERLAND 2 WEST HAM UNITED 
"I thought the boys played well today and from the first minute right until the last they did everything they possibly could do to get a result.

Their first goal was disappointing because we started the game well, we were on the front foot but within five we found ourselves a goal down.
Credit to the players for coming back and sticking at it. We played well in the first half and we deservedly went in at half-time drawing.
Wahbi [Khazri] is capable of that (kind of goal) from set-pieces. The wind was swirling around which was always going to make it either better or worse depending on how our deliveries were.
I thought Wahbi played well; he contributed to an all-round good team performance, we needed that and I’m glad to see it.
We worked hard and it looked like we needed something to go for us right at the end. We pushed, we tried hard, but ultimately we just couldn’t get a win.
I don’t think Billy's injury is as bad as we first thought. He hit the ground bad, but I think he has just concussed himself and hopefully it won’t be as bad as we first feared."
