    Not good enough, Puel out. We are heading for relegation. And what is Reed doing wasting money on Gabbiadini when we're calling out for a new centre back.

    I'm beginning to think it's possible that we won't get relegated this season.

    A good professional display.

    Up the Saints.

    Didn't expect that. Love gabi. Good team performance after a poor first 15.

    Well done lads.

    Didnt watch it but sounds convincing.

    Can actually look forward to watching MOTD for a change.

    Man of the match??

    Wonderful performance. New defender in and boufal fit and we have chance in cup final.

    Sunderland were so confident going into this game. Football has a habit of kicking you in the nuts when you think things are going your way. I'm very happy with the result. Romeu was great in midfield, Yoshida and Stephens solid but not tested that much, Tadic had a good game and Gabbiadini appears to be a stud.

    Perfect game for us. Excellent result and moves us up some places in the table. I do feel kinda sorry for Sunderland fans as they have been by far the worst team I have seen for a longtime. The next few months are going to be horrific for them.
    Where as we will be at Wembley!

    Gabbiadini without a doubt. He's exactly what we've been missing.

    Bertrand, Tadic and Romeu too.

    Defoe is still in Stephens's pocket.

    Shocking for 20/25 minutes.. scored a goal then full of confidence and owned the game. Gabbiadini, Romeu and Tadic fantastic.

    Fantastic performance. Gabbiadini looks some player - his intelligent movement is what we've been screaming for!

    Tadic was sensational. Played a much more free role and linked lots of attacking play.

    From The Guardian:

    Manolo Gabbiadini stole the headlines with two goals on another disappointing afternoon for Sunderland. Their players board a flight to New York for some sort of bonding session later this evening. It could be a long flight.

    Shame on Puel playing without a goal-scoring striker for most of the season. At least he's finally realised the importance of having one.

    Puel out!!!!

    Great news. Feared the worst and avoided checking the score till late on.

    Will look forward to watching the highlights.

    Happy days

    CB's did well, Tadic on form, Gabba clinical, Long scores 2 in 10 mins!
    Hard to choose but I'd go for Stephens as he never gave Defoe a sniff !!

    Apart from first 10 mins we were completely in control

    Good win prior to the final, should boost the lads confidence. Sunderland are awful though.

  24. Default

    So one sided in the second half - Sunderland were abject, but what an important win. Bertrand, Romeu, Gabby and Tadic all excellent. Yoshida and Stevens didn't give Defoe a sniff.

    What are the cry babies on this forum going to complain about over the next 2 weeks then? Great performance after a dodgy start - and for all you JWP haters: f*** you. he was superb today as he has been on the whole recently.

    7 or 8 would have been a fair reflection of that game and I think you can safely put to bed any thoughts of a relegation battle - much to the disappointment of quite a few on here I'm sure.

    Sorry, replied to wrong quote but my sentiments still stand

    I think Gabby is the type of striker that Puel wanted (past tense) Redmond to be. The short quick guy. Jay Rod looked ****ed, my guess is he's looking to go.

    Ok, so maybe the 7 day preparation did help after all.

    Good result. Gabbiadini seems like exactly the right kind of player to bring out the best from Tadic. Front three of Boufal, Gabbiadini & Tadic hopefully picks itself once all three are fit.

    Amazing what having the players to play the preferred formation can do in addition to a whole week on the training field to get the coaching right.

    The usual cu_ts will say it's just papering over the cracks, I'll say it's a glimpse of the future.

    I wouldn't exactly call Gabbi 'short' he's over six foot!

    Great game, great performance, great result.

    Sweepstake on those forum members who won't be posting tonight? (or those that will post in a positive fashion in a forlorn attempt to cover their normal modus operandi)

    Relegation my arse.

    Bring on the cup final!

    COYR!!

    What was up with Jay Rodriguez - did he have a paddy on the bench?

    Gabbi is a different gravy up front, or a Ragu as they call it in Italy.

    Romeu was immense as were the whole back line.

    Don't mind if Boufal isn't back for Wembley, as Tadic is such a good player, when he has someone making the runs that Gabbi does.

    Taters said he threw his shinpads when PEH was subbed on for Tadic.

    Did not see that result coming I thought it would be a draw is the result to change rest of the season.

    Very good result, making me happy.

    Gabba providing the striking options we've needed for a while.

    Yes, Sunderland were poor for most of the game, but they had chances early on and didn't take them. We grew into the game and played confidently.

    Hopefully a turning point to lift the gloom ahead of the cup final

    Gloom? What gloom? (unless you're referring to the usual suspects of course...?)

    Forster could have done with a crossword to keep him occupied.

    Most of the plaudits will go to Gabbiadini, but in addition I thought Romeu absolutely bossed the midfield, and praise is also due to our CB pair, who didn't put a foot wrong, ( Jermaine who ? ).

    I loved the way defoe whined at stephens after a tackle on the left, jack went sauntering away with a huge grin on his face. Brilliant.
