Three main culprits cost us the three points at the Mike Ashley Arena on Saturday – all of whom should hang their heads in shame.
First, let’s get to Sunderland’s very own Jordan Pickford – he needs to realise a poor Newcastle side have no rivalry with us and cannot be so affected by the delusional barcodes. He was awful and has made far too many mistakes this season
Second, Marco Silva. He brought Yerry Mina on to shore up the side when the obvious thing was to bring on Morgan Schneiderlin to do so – he does not seem up the job. Can he be trusted to improve us next season?
And the ref Lee Mason, who might have given offside if seven players had been offside for the winner instead of a measly six.
Just another in a long line of terrible decisions against us.

After two really encouraging results, Evertonians were brought back down to earth with an almighty bang on Saturday afternoon.
From seemingly being in total control, to total car crash.
If ever a game summed up Everton ’s season then this was it.
More questions will be asked of the manager and his position – but for me, the players really should have a long hard look at themselves.
This is a team lacking leaders, spirit and, when the going gets tough, the ability to role their sleeves up and get through it.
May simply can’t come quick enough, as this squad needs a drastic overhaul in all positions, especially if we are to become more than a side who simply competes in mid-table.
How Marcel Brands and co do that remains to be seen, as this club is still sadly suffering from years of mismanagement.

Leaving St James’ Park on Saturday left me thinking one word – disbelief!
With the team having performed so well in the previous two games, and keeping two clean sheets, I travelled to the game with great optimism.
After an hour’s play that optimism was realised, but for some strange reason the game turned and I couldn’t put my finger on it.
However, reflecting on the journey back, my thoughts are that Pickford was clearly affected by the crowd getting on his back, which contributed to his loss of focus and conceding goals.
I know he saved a penalty, but let’s be honest he could have been sent off for the tackle on Salomon Rondon. We need him at his more reliable best.
Although their third goal was clearly offside and denied us a point, which I felt was the least we deserved, let’s remain positive and take heart from the recent signs that we are getting our confidence back – and I’m sure the results will follow.
