I am looking forward to Wednesday night purely to see someone wearing a SAFC shirt this season putting some effort in and breaking sweat.

Swansea score 2 and we can only put up token resistance. Commentary says its a poor show by us in a half empty stadium. Two injuries Denayer off after 20 minutes and Anichebe after 37. Sigh. And what was with the booing of Anichebe? That's not right Sad

I was also all set up to go, but at the last minute some problems with my son's diabetic kit meant I had to act as taxi driver to get him sorted.

Looking at the score and listening to the commentary Sus and I did not miss much

I am home between hospital visits and it sounds like we dodged a bullet.

The fans, the manager and the owner already knew we needed new players but they all now know that not only are we short on quality we are also short on fight, character, pride and many simply just want away.

Many of the team that played today should not be in the remaining two games.

From BBC live text - "Big changes needed" Moyes says. He can say that again. That poorly child, who literally got out of his hospital bed to come to be our mascot today, showed more heart and more courage in his little finger, than the entire team in the red and white today. They need to take a good hard look at themselves Mad



'Big changes needed'

Sunderland boss David Moyes, speaking to BBC Sport:
"Everyone watching can see we need big changes. We need to alter the playing staff and I think everyone is aware of that.
"Jordan Pickford has been fantastic for us but he should never have got involved in the free kick and we found it hard chasing the game.
"We lost two players through injury which didn't help. We changed it at half-time but ultimately we needed to impose ourselves on Swansea. The first goal was the turning point."

I picked out a few words about today from this which summed up our season for me, inlcuding: "inept", "one-sided", "heartless", "negative".  Crying or Very sad

Sunderland 0 - 2 Swansea
                                          Llorente (9) Naughton (45+2)

By Phil Dawkes
BBC Sport
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Fernando Llorente's goal was his 14th of the season and third in his past four games

Swansea's Premier League safety could be confirmed on Sunday after goals from Fernando Llorente and Kyle Naughton gave them a deserved win over relegated Sunderland.
An afternoon that had the potential to be a nervous one for the Swans became very comfortable once Llorente headed home Gylfi Sigurdsson's free-kick in the ninth minute.
Naughton struck a decisive blow in first-half stoppage time with his first Swans goal - a superb angled drive into the far top corner.
Victory opened a four-point gap between the Welsh side and 18th-placed Hull, who will be relegated to the Championship if they lose at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Sunderland, who beat Hull last weekend, were booed off at both half-time and the final whistle of an inept display that epitomised their season.

Llorente rises to the occasion once more

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kyle Naughton scored his first Premier League goal in his 141st appearance in the competition. It was his first league goal since scoring for Leicester against Scunthorpe in March 2011

As Swansea manager Paul Clement pointed out this week, it seems perverse for a side to celebrate narrowly avoiding relegation.
However, having had three managers in the space of a season in which they were bottom at halfway with only 12 points, it was understandable why the Swans so enjoyed taking a huge stride towards safety.
And celebrate they did at the final whistle of a completely one-sided encounter they never looked like losing from the moment the familiar link-up between Sigurdsson and Llorente put them in front.
Sigurdsson now has 13 assists for the season, while Llorente has 14 goals and has scored in each of the three victories Swansea have recorded during a timely unbeaten run of four matches.
Also timely was full-back Naughton's first goal for the Swans in more than 60 appearances. His angled drive - set up by a neat pass from former Black Cats loan player Ki Sung-yueng - ensured there would be no late nerves.
It is now up to Hull to respond, otherwise Clement can lead his side into their final fixture at home to West Brom safe in the knowledge he will have a summer to prepare the Swans for a sixth successive top-flight campaign.

Sunderland's deficiencies laid bare

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Sunderland conceded 34 home league goals this season, their most since 2005-06 (37)

Sunderland's defeat by Bournemouth two weeks ago confirmed the end of their 10-season stay in the Premier League.
But two vastly contrasting displays since mean the Black Cats have provided a potentially decisive parting shot in the battle to avoid joining them in the Championship.
At the KCOM Stadium last weekend, they showed enough in a 2-0 victory to give some hope that, with some strategic planning and rebuilding, they could bounce straight back to the top flight.
But Saturday's heartless display, played out in front of a half-empty stadium that was almost devoid of home fans by full-time, laid bare just how much work they have to do.
Any promotion effort next season looks unlikely to feature striker Jermain Defoe, who has scored 15 times this campaign but has a relegation release clause in his contract and appeared to be saying goodbye during a solo lap of the ground at full-time.
Manager David Moyes has suggested he will continue in his role, but the home fans aimed negative chants in his direction during this game.
The Black Cats end their home campaign having earned just 14 points - the fewest in the division - and with a run of 10 games without victory, seven of which they failed to score in.

'It is not done yet' - what the managers said

Sunderland boss David Moyes, speaking to BBC Sport:

"Everyone watching can see we need big changes. We need to alter the playing staff and I think everyone is aware of that.
"Jordan Pickford has been fantastic for us but he should never have got involved in the free-kick and we found it hard chasing the game.
"We lost two players through injury which didn't help. We changed it at half-time but ultimately we needed to impose ourselves on Swansea. The first goal was the turning point."

Swansea boss Paul Clement, speaking to BBC Sport:
 
"It's a huge result for us. We've got ourselves into a strong position but the season is not over and we don't think it is done. Now have to look to next week.
"There's still one game to go. We'll be looking at the Crystal Palace-Hull game with a lot of interest but we can be happy with our work today.
"It was a bit of a messy second half but we got the job done."
On Kyle Naughton's goal: "A lot of those go in our car park at the training ground. That goal was a great moment."

Not a good way to finish off a lousy season, but Pickford's misjudgment for that important first goal was the key.

Ive watched us in what was the 3rd division. I've watched us during our 15 & 19 point seasons but nothing can compare with today's totally inept performance from that overpaid bunch of incompetent w*nkers currently plying their trade at our club.

Surely we can complain to the ombudsman about them not being footballers and getting our monies back.
