Surely a first Sunderland win is around the corner, right? The Black Cats haven’t won a game in August or September for last four years. They’re not famed for being red hot in October, though. It’s hard to watch David Moyes suffer to the comical extent that he does. That worn-down look of dread that he carries around with him like a real-life Moe Szyslak.
Two nil up last weekend, he watched his team capitulate against Crystal Palace. They literally conceded a minute after scoring that second goal. The great heights made them dizzy. Now they’re hosting West Brom and will be without the likes of Adnan Januzaj.
Tony Pulis is also under pressure but nowhere near the level of Moyes. Pulis can tell his side to sit back and take advantage of a side that will be desperate for a win. This could be the end, Moysey.
