Man On The Street: And The Walls Came Tumbling Down...

Well, well, well. It looks like they're finally starting to wise up.

The Irishman has stepped down, and now the Texan is in full control. This can only mean one thing – soon enough, it'll be bye bye Potato Head.

I feel on top of the world. It's taken an absolutely shocking start to the season, but finally things are moving into place whereby mashed potato face is gonna get shipped out.

The Irishman is too nice. This whole new 'International Development' crap is just a shroud to try and fool all of us. He'll be gone come next summer. The Texan is taking over and there's nothing we can do about it.

Obviously, in the short term, I'm happy. It means we'll not have to listen to Potato Head yabbering on and blaming us FANS (yep, that's right) for much longer.

However, in the long run, I'm pretty worried about the new events. I mean, yeah, he's wedged, yeah, he's founded and ran an extremely lucrative firm – but what the hell does he know about football?

It wouldn't surprise me if we're supporting the Sunderland Raiders or Seahawks or some other Americanised garbage some time soon. We'll have git big screens advertising Budweiser and Miller Light and s***e like that in between every time the ball goes out of play. Suppose we might get some cheerleaders like, but then again if they're from Sunderland they'll all have a face like a dropped pie.

Moving away from behind the scenes, we put in another cracking performance at the weekend. And by cracking, I mean it makes you want to crack your own skull off a f*****g wall because it'll be much more fun than watching the dross being served up.

I'm not gonna lie, I left after ten minutes. I was gonna leave on five then realised it was silly. Then I saw them go close AGAIN and thought, that's enough for me. I missed two goals yeah, but so f**k. We shouldn't have to put up with this s***e man – West Bromwich Albion?!?! They're bloody awful, and the horrifying thing is we're just as bad.

Cattermole is awful. Gardner's even worse. Sessegnon? No final ball. Bender? Needed a deflection for his goal, and he's far too namby pamby. No surprise he's come from Arsenal; and look how well they're doing now!

In truth, I'm struggling for what to say. We're very very poor and a relegation battle awaits us this season. We never look like scoring, we defend badly, and we just seem to wilt under any kind of pressure.

I wish this season was over already.
