Anichebe Doubtful For Arsenal Clash As Moyes Eyes Upset

Anichebe Doubtful For Arsenal Clash As Moyes Eyes Upset

You get recognised or picked up because of your record of what you do, so let's hope we get some really good performances from them against Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Echo then ran a poll to readers asking them whether they think Moyes was right to suggest that the Magpies" blueprint should be emulated, to which 44% actually said "Yes", 35% said "sort of", but their season was far from perfect' and 23% said flat out "No'.

The Sunderland boss was even more annoyed after he was handed the match analysis statistics, with running figures and the like all down on previous matches this season; one that has hardly been impressive anyway.

They join a lengthy casualty list, a situation which has bedevilled Moyes ever since he arrived at the Stadium of Light.

Asked if it had been a terrible season, the former Everton boss said: "Of course it has because of the outcome, and we have said we have been really disappointed by it". It's been hard to fathom just what exactly their strategy has been other than using Anichebe as a wide-left target man back in November.

Whether Moyes stays or goes, Sunderland are in dire need of major change. If anyone was watching on Saturday they might say no. The players are the ones who cross the line, they have to show what they can do, many of them are thinking there is something better, well, that would have to be their choice.

Boston Celtics take Game Seven against the Washington Wizards 115-105
Since his incredible 53-point outburst in Game 2 , however, the point guard has failed to reach the 20-point mark three times . Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas missed an off-balance 3-point heave before the buzzer, setting up a Game 7 on Monday in Boston .

Music fans will recognize Kehlani from artist Kehlani Parrish, and Star Wars fans will remember Kylo from "The Force Awakens". Last year, it fell 542 spots - the biggest drop of any name - to No. 1,151. "Now it is suddenly controversial", she said.

Boston move one win away from Eastern Conference Finals
They won't need such a dominant surge to force a Game 7, but they will need a better effort than what they delivered Wednesday. So they nearly doubled that output - not to mention the Celtics held the Wizards to almost half their own Game 4 total.

Could someone like Papy Djilobodji be given a chance to impress?

But it was great to see that one go in.

It's said often, but the travelling lads and lasses deserve so much more from this team.

Here's to the travelling contingent, hopefully next season brings better fortune.

Although Moyes is expected to be in charge, the toxic atmosphere at Sunderland's last home game of the season against Swansea City did send a message.

"We knew, we were experienced enough to understand what it would take to stay up and from the start, we were always playing catch-up, really. There are some bits along the journey where you would say, "Maybe I shouldn't have done that or done this", but ultimately they're not the reasons why we are in the position we are in". "But obviously we'd like to keep them for the game on Wednesday night". If we need to dip in and bring them and use them on the bench, we will do. "It's not about me, it's about the club and for the club to do the right things for Sunderland Football Club to come back strongly next year". Perhaps the players will be desperate to attract potential suitors, and will play out of their skins.
