Alan Shearer’s Witty Reaction To Yesterday’s Results

With Sunderland losing 4-1 at home to Arsenal yesterday they have made the worst start ever to a Premier League season equalling Manchester City’s 2 points from 10 game back in the 1995-1996 season.

Newcastle won their sixth game in a row in the Championship yesterday with a hard fought 2-1 win at Preston and have 34 points from 15 games and only one place below Sunderland in the overall league placings.

In 1995 City lost their 11th game and then won four of the next five games, but were still relegated 3rd bottom with 38 points.

    Haha…Big Al still unable to resist tormenting the makems, even though he’s retired. Love it!
    Good result yesterday, these are the games you need to see out, even though you’re way off your best, if you’re going to be at the to p at the end of the season. Another great weekend to be a Toon fan!

    As all Toon supporters do I have looked at the Mackems fixtures and with a little bit of generosity I can only see them picking up a total of 22 points this season.

    Unless they sign some ‘Worldies’ or three other clubs capitulate……They are definately down.

    Merson did add the gap to 4th bottom is not that far away. Hopefully that gap will grow.

    Typical that lazy jouros are now creating fiction on transfer targets for the so called big clubs . Chelsea are in decline but are rumoured in the Sun on Sunday to be prepared to bid £18m for Lascalles in vain attempt to bolster their creaky defence.
    For goodness sakes they could buy the whole Dunderland team for that amount and still have change.

    Comment #5 say we only get 2500 tickets for the Hull game.
    Is that right.
    I thought the allocation was more for cup games.
    Or is it just FA Cup ?

    Yesterday reminded me so much of some of SBR’s away games.

    In those days the volume of games came from the fact we were in Europe.

    Some thing would happen to disrupt the team plans (Friday it was a Gayle hamstring tweak )

    We go away and seemingly play shite in the first half and then hump the opposition in the second.

    In fact what was happening then is what is happening now.

    Rafa/Bobby would say “whatever you do don’t concede first half while I and my coaches have a good look at their set up”

    Half-time arrives the requisite tweaks are made and instructions issued and bingo.

    Yesterday realising they were giving Shelvey no time at all Rafa gave the task of finding the killer through ball for Mitro to Matt Ritchie and the Scottish international delivered on the hour.

    The Preston defense never even attempted to intercept it , they were so focussed on the bald one.

    Preston then chasing the game gave Deandre Yedlin that little bit of extra space and he dropped a beauty right on Big Als head which gave him the chance to poke home his spilled (spilt ?) header.

    Simon Grayson desperately throwing on forwards to rescue a point was never going to work although the ref did his best to oblige the home side.

    It would be fascinating to find out what Rafa perceives as his priority purchases in the next window in 10 weeks time
