Without Keane, Sunderland Flirt With Relegation

Is Roy Keane smirking right now? Is he rolling his eyes? Both? For two years Sunderland was Roy Keane’s baby. He took the struggling side, nurtured it back to health and delivered it from the relegation zone of the Championship and back to the top flight. In every transfer window […]

With West Brom’s unfortunate defeat at White Hart Lane yesterday, the Baggies are all but relegated with 28 points from 35 games leaving them 6 points behind Hull City – with the Yorkshiremen having a game in hand. Barring a miracle, Tony Mowbray’s outfit will be playing Championship football next season, […]

Where Did It All Go Wrong For Hull City?

When a team only wins 2 games out of 18, you’d fully expect them to be propping up the Premiership table, already planning for life in the Championship the following season. Thankfully for Hull City, their fantastic start to the season has kept them out of the bottom 3, hanging […]

Sunderland Keep Slipping Under Sbragia

When Manchester United scored two late goals on Sunday to secure a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over Aston Villa, the result seemed to sweep under the rug the idea that United were a team in serious danger of relinquishing their Premier League lead heading into the home stretch. After Tuesday’s 2-2 […]

The Relegation Rumble: Sunderland

Hull City To Go Down?

Which Premiership Teams Will Be Relegated?

Despite the criticism of the Premiership so far this season, it’s refreshing to see that all of the teams in the league have double digits after Charlton’s last minute win last night against Blackburn. Last year, if you remember, it seemed that Sunderland were stuck on single digit points for […]
