I mean SUNDERLAND are fucking brilliant. Kept the game nice and tight. Took their chances, Went on to deliver the killer blow from a 'new' striker. Hangng on in there, dangerous as ever, then Vito, Vito for fuck's sake, makes an error. Absolutely bloody ace.
Mannone can be forgiven, as he's performed more than valiantly for the entire season. Although he's played like he's a superhero, he is after all only human. He is still Sunderland's player of the season.
Sunderland needed the 3 points, so did City. Sunderland have really dented City's season, bu they might not have done enough to help themselves though.
I'd love to see Sunderland fuck over Chelsea just as much if not more (may as well go for a win).
Still mathematically doable to stay up. And playing like this makes it possible.
On other news, Crystal Pulis do it again. Surely spannered Everton's Euro aspirations, reached the magic 40. Safe as houses. Even if Poyet can keep Sunderland up (and that fat bird still ain't singing), Pulis has done a better job at Palace and should take 'manager of the season' hands down. Anything less (or anyone else) would be a travesty.
I reckon every Scouse supporter owes every Mackem a beer.
