Sunderland And Villa Dragged Into Relegation Fight


There were two games in the Premier League tonight with teams fighting lower in the table, and the teams that won were the ones that were lower in the league table before the games.

Steve Bruce – Hull have 4 points from last two games

Sunderland became the team that broke QPR’s 11 game losing streak away from home as QPR  went 2-0 up in the first half with goals from Fer (17) and Zamora (45) and held on for a precious 3 points.

Both Defoe and Whickam went close but the Black Cats couldn’t get a goal back.

That was the twelfth game away for QPR in the Premier League this season, and the first time they have come away with anything from a game.

And Hull City followed up their excellent 1-1 result and performance at Manchester City over the weekend with a good 2-0 win at home to Aston Villa.

Villa are now 3rd from bottom with 22 points, one more point than Burnley and 5 points more than Leicester City who lost 2-1 at Arsenal, but played quite well.

After their poor performance against Newcastle, Hull City manager Steve Bruce said they would now have to fight their way out of this – and certainly they have done well in the last two games with a good 4 points.

Sunderland are on 24 points and 7th bottom and they will need to pick up some points to avoid relegation and the 6 points they seem to be guaranteed against Newcastle each season.

In the game we watched, Liverpool and Tottenham both looked very good and it was Balotelli who scored the winner late in the game to give the Reds a vital 3-2 win, with American owner John Henry looking on.

But when you watched Balotelli walk off the pitch at the end of the game, you wouldn’t have thought anything good had just happened to both him and Liverpool – it was Mario’s first PL goal of the season.

If Newcastle can get all 3 points tomorrow we will be on a decent 34 points – we are hoping we can do just that.

Howay The Lads!!

    I think the scum will be safe this season, but it could be squeaky bum time for them.

    Sold a dud mate, it’s great if we can get him playing but we’ve just pissed away 6m on an injury prone player!! Our medical team must be shite, player that good comes on the market and the only real interest is us…says a lot mate.

    Our toon ——– £6M for a player who already had problems. Ajax must have known he was starting to pick up injuries and at 26 years old , ajax wouldnt have let him go at that age, bearing in mind the quality player he is if they didnt think anything was not right . his best years were in front of him ( were ) infront of him

    Go look at his injury record last season!! Forget the lung which collapsed again….like I said earlier I feel for the bloke but for the club he’s not even managed to get enough games to acclimatise!!

    Well we might as well stick with him, I’d sooner wait for him to get sorted than pay 6 million for a Championship player.
    The blokes a class act, just unlucky.

    He can only be a class act on the pitch, I’ve watched him play many times and yes he’s very good….but not on the treatment table!!
