    Also, as a side issue, imagine what AVB would have done with Pienaar and Kranjar rather than Sigs and Dempsey

    Hnmmm, not really like for like.

    Sigs has come good and Kranjcar would never have been mobile enough for AVB (he frankly did go off the boil a bit towards the end of his time with us). But yes, Penaar would have been useful to keep, and Dempsey has been a waste of time.

    I always thought the number of shirts you see on comic relief videos was directly proportional to how badly a team did the previous year.

    We had a variation on that too. I think it was to the addams family or something but my memory is failing me.

    No longer PL, but Bolton are releasing Kevin Davies at the end of the season, five days before his 10 year testimonial date would have kicked in - nice.

    Oh and they told him this on his birthday.

    See him at West Ham next season no doubt.

    England were about as 'elite' then as First Encounters.

    Cattermole isnt a big loss for them, but losing Fletcher definitely is. They struggle to score goals with him IN the team, so unless Danny Graham can step up to the plate.......yeah, they could definitely go down.

    It seems like quite a fall from grace for Sunderland, they seemed to be fine but then they've gone on an awful run. I can't really be very objective about it because of O'Neill but it does seem like he's steering them if not down, then certainly they'll be close. That is unless their form turns around suddenly but with Fletcher out and Graham being distinctly average I don't like their chances.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    MoN seems to do unfeasibly well with teams at first, and then go on massive downwards spirals. It's weird.

    I didn't realise they were on the same points as us. I'd still rather see West Ham get dragged in and go down.

    if I could choose what teams would go down (within reason), it would be West Ham, Stoke and Newcastle.

    I don't know what it is with MoN, every season when managing Villa we'd be ace for the first half of the season and then have a very sharp decline from there. The problem he has at Sunderland is that they were never that ace and the decline has been just as sharp.

    Some of it was definitely squad rotation as he would keep playing the same players all season until they were knackered but I'm not sure that's true in Sunderland's case. I do wonder if football has slightly moved on and he's stuck with his mentality.

    You are a factory of sadness.
