David Moyes agrees with Alan Shearer's damning verdict on 'pathetic' Sunderland flops

Sebastian Larsson: Sunderland players deserve criticism

The Black Cats, now bottom of the table with 24 points from 36 games, have won only six times this season and will register their third-lowest points total in Premier League history at the end of the campaign.

However, despite the testing spells at Manchester United and Real Sociedad which preceded his arrival at Sunderland, he is confident his standing in the game remains intact ahead of an end-of-season meeting with owner Ellis Short that will determine his fate.

He said: "It could be, yes, but it could also be hard if things are not going well".

Moyes headed straight for the tunnel after the final whistle rather than head into the centre circle to show his appreciation for the fans after the final home game, knowing he would have come under further fire.

"In football, sometimes you win games".

"It's not for me to say here [what the problems are], it's for everyone connected to the club to look at". This is the only anomaly where it hasn't happened.

Celtics power past Wizards in Game 7, 115-105
The whistle blew with 2.7 seconds on the clock but an extra second ticked off and was not noticed by officials or the timekeeper. Ultimately, Isaiah Thomas would miss a desperation heave - sending this hard-fought series back to Boston for Game 7 on Monday.

I take responsibility, I am the manager, I put the team out, but there also comes a point where the players have to show it.

The 54-year-old's summer rebuilding work was conducted hurriedly and increasingly desperately and with funding drying up, he found himself shopping in the bargain basement.

"It has been a terrible season because of the outcome", he added. It's not been great.

"We made everybody well aware that our squad was short from the start".

"We've spoken to everyone at the club who has a situation with their contracts where it could be terminated or they could leave", he added.

"It might be that we have to take the kids with us to Arsenal but that is not a problem".

Aroldis Chapman goes on Yankees' DL with sore shoulder
Chapman had a MRI on Saturday, a day after getting just two outs and giving up a run in the ninth inning of a 5-1 loss to Houston. It was his first blown save of the year, and the Yanks would of course need 18 innings to finally subdue the defending champs.

"You have to look at it as though it is a big opportunity to get things right and hopefully bounce back at the first attempt".

SunSport columnist Shearer slammed Sunderland for their lack of effort in Saturday's 2-0 home surrender to Swansea.

He said: "I'd have to say that I think in many ways, he was right".

"I was massively disappointed with Saturday's performance, it was really, really poor".

So many things went wrong at the weekend, and despite defending his team initially, David Moyes has since reviewed data of the player's performances and agreed that they simply weren't good enough against Hull - who by the way secured their Premier League status thanks to the weekend's results. "There were some reasons for it, but I'm actually privy to the stats, I can see the physical stats and on much of that, I couldn't disagree".
