    Oh dear, it just gets worse and worse for Altidore. He’s playing for the Sunderland U-21 team today instead of this match.

    • Remy says:

      Better playing with the U-21 team than not playing at all. On the other hand, we can tell how much better Sunderland performs without him, the score is telling. There’s no way Sunderland stays in the Premier league and I am not sure that Gus Poyet is a very good manager either. Jozy made a horrible mistake going to Sunderland. I hope he made some good money at least.

  2. christian says:

    Is it possible some MLS team can bring this man home? It’s obviously too late to help him get his confidence back for the World Cup but at this point maybe the hope he can get out of Sunderland would get him going.

    • Grayson says:

      I’d rather see him go somewhere else in Europe where he can get playing time. Some team that’s not fighting relegation and can provide service. When you’re always the underdog, the lone striker is more often than not isolated. At AZ, they were actually competitive and usually near the very top of the league, and not in their own half the whole game. MLS won’t develop Jozy, it will just give him playing time. A bad run of form in the MLS, and who knows if he’ll ever get back to form. It’s an adjustment to go back to the MLS, as it’s a more sloppy, athletic, less technical, direct style of play. Would rather see him go back to Holland, France, or maybe Italy.

  3. Brian says:

    I’ll be interested to see what kind of reception the Spurs faithful give Sherwood since the news about his future not being manager of the club next season. What will happen if Spurs are losing or are playing exceptionally well. Can’t wait to find out.

  4. Ianor says:

    Martin tyler tonight. Martin tyler tomorrow chelsea vs psg. Enjoy the best commentator of all time.

  5. Javier says:

    Spurs are so bad even Lee Cattermole scores on them.

    • Hickorywind says:

      Add this to the list of horrific goals allowed by Spurs this season. And Chiriches is one of our better defenders, generally.

  6. EDub says:

    I came here to see if anyone had news on Altidore … I see it’s not good. U21s??? I fear that his time in the EPL might be done and dusted.

  7. Bo says:

    Eriksen is our new Bale. Has saved us alot this half of the season.

  8. Gerry says:

    Looks like Sunderland will be in the Championship next season. Cannot see them surviving now. For a while they were playing really well but recently they’ve been very poor.

  9. Mufc77 says:

    Thank you baby Jesus. Hopefully spurs go undefeated the last 5 games but I’m sure they will blow it and we will end up in Europe

  10. Smokey Bacon says:

    The bottom three is taking shape. Of the teams outside the bottom three, only Norwich seem he’ll bent on falling through the trap door.

    • francis says:

      I think Fulham might just escape…they’ve got the best manager among the bottom feeders and some talented players

  11. Eddie says:

    Other than the sloppy goal and the fact that Rose had a shocker I thought we were pretty good tonight. Eriksen had a phenomenal game and like someone mentioned earlier, has got some crucial goals this season

  12. scrumper says:

    Sunderland were pretty pathetic
