Newcastle, Middlesboro, Sunderland, Hull and West Brom ALL RELEGATED!
So, it is scenes of dejection on Tyneside and from deep inside the smog, whilst they dance in the streets of Sunderland and Hull; but let's just get things into perspective. Needing a result to guarantee Premiership survival, THEY ALL LOST on the final day. How pathetic is that?
Newcastle will bemoan their luck and put it all down to a cruel deflection but that is absurd. Second half they didn't threaten; there wasn't a single moment when I thought, hang on, this could get interesting. Not with a bang but a whimper? They didn't even manage a whimper! It was a shameful performance - utterly clueless, gutless, passionless, call it what you will. No spunk? No bleeding testicles more like! I have seen some inept West Ham performances in my time but I have NEVER seen us look so inept and so devoid of passion in such an important game. And yet the carTOON Army were still chanting Shearer's name at the end! Personally, I feel cheated. I expected an afternoon of high drama but in the end I was struggling to stay awake. How bad is this Newcastle team? Or how bad is Shearer as a manager? Will he walk away now? That would probably be for the best for Newcastle but how gutless will he then appear? He arrived Teflon coated; now he is covered in shite whatever his decision!
But how sad is it to see Sunderland and Hull celebrating? How desperate is that? Hull - one win in 22 games! If any club did their best to keep another in the division, it was Hull City. Brown had better keep hold of that microphone - he should be a club singer based on the last 22 matches!
And Sunderland? Never mind today, look at their surrender at Portsmouth. How much did Keane spend to build that team? Ipswich must be off their trolleys to give him the manager's job. He has a screw loose and has as much financial acumen as a director of HBOS.
Hull survive with 35 points. That says it all. Sunderland survive with 37, one less than the recognised safety line. In truth they have all been relegated. They are ALL crap and an embarrassment to the Premiership.
And amazingly, given how inept Hull and Sunderland are, Shearer and Newcastle have still contrived to be relegated and keep their rivals up! Comic book stuff from the carTOON comedians!
