    Its not how many you lose, but how many you win. Would have been better to win 6 & lose 6 than only lose 2.....but then draw most of the rest.
  • 6 x 3 = 18
    6 x 0 = 0

    = 18

    12 x 1 = 12

    ta ;-)

  • them game in hands that meant Sunderland are nailed on for promotion are starting to be eaten away 

    doncaster and barnsley are pretty rampant atm

    I can imagine the owners of other league one clubs are delighted to see Sunderland, Portsmouth and Charlton all start in drop down the table. Keeping the three biggest clubs in league one next season would be a bonus for everyone else.
  • Luton and Barnsley look strong for the automatics now. Wouldn’t fancy us in the play offs against Sunderland, Portsmouth and Donny.

    Not always true. If those losses were against promotion rivals (e.g us or Luton etc) then they would be worse off

    Think if we want to face Doncaster in the Semi-Finals then we'd need to get 3rd

    Reckon we'll end up in fifth and so face Portsmouth with Sunderland waiting in the Final

  • stay in playoffs 25% chance of promotion, not the outcome we wanted but what go back a season and a half ago we were looking at potentially playing league 2 football, if we dont not go up this season then a completely different sqaud and manager will be wearing the kit next year and relegation could be a lot more of a certainty.

    I'd fancy us against those 3 to be fair. Well, with Grant and Taylor up top I would have. Let's see how we look on Saturday with Taylor back.

    They are the Huddersfield of the North east.

    Easy to see why their boss said if he could have one Charlton player it would be Lyle Taylor.
  • From a betting perspective I always go with a previously relegated team to win the play offs, as they normally have the biggest squad size.

    Wish they’d had a 1-1 on the opening day! 
    If Gooch hadn't whacked Pearce and forced him off, we probably would have clung on for the draw

    I'd say Doncaster is he team to avoid at the moment … they will be a major test in a couple of weeks time ..  but of course things change so quickly in this League .. whoever we play (if we make the play offs and we surely will) is surely secondary to how we shape up against them .. we've nothing to fear except fear itself (who said that ?)

    Lets hope they are rubbish at penalties, nailed on play off final!

  • We are getting to the business end of the season. It’s all about who is the form team from now on in that counts and less on who has been the form team. We basically know why our form dipped over the past three games, Lyle Taylor was suspended. We just need to start over again from Saturday and keep going.
  • digressing a bit from the Mackem 1-1s .. the Fylde flyers are looking more of a threat as the season goes on .. Blackpool and Fleetwood that is

    Hopefully Doncaster wil have another FA Cup tie after beating the stripeys.
  • Sunderland now have 13 league draws .....

    Unbeaten in 9, but only 3 wins. That's not promotion form, some fans are starting to get restive...
    15 points from 9 games ....... that's nevertheless a tidy return from a team out of form.
    Remember the old adage about successful teams playing poorly but still picking up points?

    Don't underestimate them. They are not getting beaten; Confidence and morale will still be high.
    It's a sound platform to build on should they finish the season on a winning run.


    Anyway, Bowyer talks about his 9 game blocks and target of 17 points.
    By that reckoning, he will think Sunderland are only 2 points behind target - and won't underestimate them.

    Suddenly experienced a small wave of nostalgia for the days of Bob Peeters...

    Never mind Big Bad Bob, that string of results is almost a Russell Slade wet dream.

    Cabbles has been spreading the word of "consolidationism" to the North-East ...

    Thank God Doncaster played a full squad against us in the cup. They’ve gone to pieces since then. 
    No they haven't (obviously), but Portsmouth and Sunderland have shown a marked slide.

    It will be interesting to see how we do with Taylor back. My assumption is that we will find winning easier again. Then we have to hope we have him fit for the play offs. I think Fosu needs to be on form by then too to give us a good chance. That is if we make the play-offs.
    Sunderland's results are a bit strange - they score every game, but they only score one! They don't concede many, but often concede one! I would expect to see them scoring 2 more often and conceding none more often too! Maybe it has become a bit of a psychological thing for them.

    Why will their confidence be high when they keep drawing all those games ? Every time we draw it feels like we’ve lost.

    They're not losing games though ...... they've won 3 of them, and the ones they've drawn, they'll feel they should have won most of those - and will look at situations like Grigg rounding the keeper and missing an open goal, feeling next time they'll score it.

    Confidence drops when you're truly struggling, getting beaten every week and never look like getting anything out of a game:
    That's not Sunderland right now.
