    After his performance on Monday I would be very surprised to see Roberts starting. Would struggle to get on the bench if it was my decision until he gets some minutes in for the U21's.

    I analyzed this post closely and I discovered two important details:

    One is the selective use of colloquial abstract representation of normative actions owing to the distinction in regulatory and derogatory affirmative relations to the binary sentences. This paragraph eschatology is nimbus to my blankata as I try to scrutinize pelagic fanatic ameliorate sepetication. I filomy selaque elucidate prudie of cremise elosis. In short and less deeper English, let me say I celesidate accume fatuous eloquently the derminor as I agrandize and aggravate felony. I belong aquicious maneuver squinting spacious melontic of my harbourous viniculor pericarditis.
    Thank you for understanding

    Less than 12 minutes long suggests it was heavily edited.

    You can tell that MD is still seething about Mondays performance.

    A case of Anthony Burgessitis methinks.

    If you’re not sure who he is, he wrote A Clockwork Orange* but I’ve read several of his other books and you have to use a dictionary every couple of sentences. I’m currently reading his book MF.

    *The film was/is excellent and highly recommended.

    The known is finite, the unknown infinite; intellectually we stand on an islet in the midst of an illimitable ocean of inexplicability. Our business in every generation is to reclaim a little more land, to add something to the extent and the solidity of our possessions. And even a cursory glance at the history of the biological sciences during the last quarter of a century is sufficient to justify the assertion, that the most potent instrument for the extension of the realm of natural knowledge which has come into men's hands, since the publication of Newton's ‘Principia’, is Darwin's ‘Origin of Species.

    So he should be, I'm still trying to calm down about it! Yes the age of the squad is young but they didn't even do the basics properly

    I agree. The whole team looked as though they gave up after the second goal went in. It was astonishing really, because Sunderland teams just don't do that!

    I also think that Luke O9 should have shown better leadership than he did. He was quite passive, when he should have made himself heard.

    Lovely play by Gelhardt. Would like him back in the summer although I understand the majority wouldn't.

    Annoyed me people judging him based on goal scoring when you can clearly see he was a great foil for Clarke, Amad and Roberts. Them 3 don't do as well as they did back end of last season without Joffy

    He took some right kickings as well but just got up and carried on. Turned out that he was playing with an injury late in the season which made his contribution even better.

    Really looking forward to seeing the lads for a drink tomorrow and the team sheet.

    Yes, the season has fallen to pieces but I still enjoy watching our players.

    Neil, Ballard, Hume, Clarke, Jobe, etc, may not always play as a team but they can produce some moments to remember. Ballard is a great lad who I hope we see again next season, same goes for Jobe, Ba, Aouchiche, Rigg, etc. In my opinion it's better to watch young players develop than older players start to fade.

    There'll be another big crowd tomorrow, I hope there's at least one moment to treasure.

    Can’t disagree with any of that mate. Love the lads in the squad - we just need some role models in there.
    Am sure it’ll be the biggest attendance in the league (again). As for the result, I reckon we win the morra.
