Sunderland relegated from Premier League after a decade

Carl Froch

Sections of the travelling support at Wednesday night's 1-0 derby defeat by Middlesbrough turned on Moyes, owner Ellis Short and the players with relegation looming and while he has vowed to battle on, the manager concedes the club's plight is agonising.

While defeat for Sunderland left the club's fans heartbroken, victory sent Bournemouth into the top half of the table and confirmed their Premier League survival, leaving manager Eddie Howe to hail his side's continued progress.

Travelling supporters sang "We want Moyesy out" at the Riverside Stadium as Marten de Roon's early goal left the Black Cats 12 points adrift of Premier League safety and staring relegation full in the face with only five games remaining. I am truly sorry that we have not been able to retain our top-flight status for them.

Stoke piled on the pressure in the closing stages as they started whipping inviting crosses into West Ham's penalty area but the visitors held firm to stretch their unbeaten run to four games, albeit three of them draws. Ultimately now, performances are not the be all and end all, it's the results we need to give ourselves a chance.

It has been clear to see for some time now that Sunderland are resigned to spending the 2017/18 season playing Championship football, with all but Pickford and Jermain Defoe looking disinterested and showing a severe lack of commitment on the pitch.

Moyes, whose players were greeted with a chorus of "You're not fit to wear the shirt" on the final whistle, said: "While there's a chance, I've got to keep going and we've all got to keep going". Frustrations have been here for four or five years, and the manager takes the brunt of that.

"But ultimately today I feel for the supporters". "We're really pleased for Artur, he's been so consistent for us and in really good form".

And they could be without a further quartet, with Lee Cattermole, Darron Gibson, Jack Rodwell and Jason Denayer set to undergo late fitness tests.

"We have come back a few times with some great fightbacks but weren't able to do it this season", the Republic of Ireland worldwide said. The club made an operating profit of £1.5m and reduced the debt burden from £133.2m to £110.4m during the year to 31 July 2016. They have won only once in eight games as they limp towards the end of the season.
