For the third consecutive Season. Once again the state of the world went back to normal on Sunday when Sunderland made West Ham look like the championship side they now are, and the deluded Mags chucked away a three goal lead to draw against West Brom and finish in the shadow of Sunderland AFC. It was 3 easy points for Sunderland, Zenden, Sessegnon and a first goal from midfielder Riveros, although it must be said Sunderland keeper Simon Mignolet did make one or two cracking saves. It was a different story at the Sports Direct Sid James Perk, Newcastle’s Steven “I dive like I was shot by a snipper, cockney-geordie” Taylor scored first then the toots were gifted two own goals from West Brom but still could not hold on to the lead with West Brom leashing three in the second half and were very unlucky not to get a fourth from the final corner of the game. Sunderland struggled with major injuries to no less than 11 first team players, the Black Cats left it to the very last minute to complete their mission of a top 10 finish. Our lesser Geordie neighbours can feel let down by their club once again as they couldn’t reach their season goal of finishing above Sunderland AFC as quoted by manager Alan Pardew. But the Bigg Market hasn’t been smashed up this time, and the windows left in the stadiums club shop.
