Do you mean get rid of arguably the most successful England manager apart from Sir Alf?
I say give him until after the Euros, if he doesnt win it, then part company with him.
With this group of players he shpuld win it.
Trouble is he must sort out the central defenders partnership, and gk.
If he can get thst sorted we should win it.


Don't think anyone is asking for him to be sacked for the Euros but I'd like him gone after.it

Although i want Southgate gone it wouldn't be fair to say he hasn't done some things right, improved areas etc like Mark says but we have now left his ways behind. He is the 'bottleneck' for the English football team now.

Doubt it. If the likes of Foden/Saka/Bellingham look ordinary for England then so will he.

I'm trying to remain positive but I fear you are right

It’s true, but the form of some of our more fringe players under him is frighteningly good.

I agree mate but I don't think that matters so much to Southgate.


Can someone get Gareth a club job please

Thankfully Palmer is making it nigh on impossible not to take him.

Luckily, a lot of his favourites like Phillips and Rashford are in terrible form so he will have a job on to justify selecting them if he does

This is Southgate we are talking about though. Loyal is his middle name sadly

I mean he can pick up to start with. But Southgate disappoints for me with how he uses our talent.


He's joint 2nd top goal scorer now in the PL, he's got 19 now same as Watkins i think.

Another hat trick by Cole Palmer tonight puts Chelsea 3 -0 up against Everton with 29 minutes of the game gone.

What a talent. Can Southgate find a way to use it?

Is 9 the new ten  :P ?

I was thinking he had 9 league goals last season and 11 this

Seven in the league last season and two in the FA Cup. His only other double figure season came at Salford in League Two 2021-2022 with 11 in 39 plus two in the EFL Trophy.


Thanks for clearing that up. I thought BTA got 9 league goals last season, my bad

Whilst trying to avoid fate a Manager of the Year award and those numbers have all the hallmarks of heartache in the Playoffs if they don't make the autos.

I've no issue with that, especially if it's against us

Weimann's stand out goal returns season was 21/22. 22 goals and 10 assists from RW and AM. Other than that nothing spectacular. BTA only has two seasons where he's reached double figures in the league too and this is one of them.

Thanks Dan. BTA has averaged double figures in his 2 seasons with us I think.

Weimann not as prolific as I recall clearly

BTA is a one-man front  line of defence.  He presses for two men.
He gets the odd goal too.  Maybe if he wasn't considered the only striker the pressure would be off him.

Also true. His effort at the front makes it harder to walk through us

Ultimately we’ll never know, all we can go by is the stats from this season as he has played a whole lot of games in the goal scoring position to be only 3 goals more than Swift, five more than Grady and MJ etc.

The eyes don’t lie, his ability, or lack thereof is clear for anyone with footballing knowledge to see, the ball bounces off him frequently, misplaces pass after pass, misses easy chances for fun.

That's why he's 3rd choice though ultimately. He is attitude/application over ability.

CC saw him as a better up front option than Wallace etc so that's what we had/have to run with until someone else is fully fit.

His record is proof of this, he's only once got more than 10 goals in a season during his career.

Really? I thought he had some fairly regular 15-20 goal seasons in the champo. That's surprising. In that case i'm changing to Weimann definitely isn't scoring double figures if he starts most games :D

I very much doubt Andi Weimann is scoring 11 league goals for us in a season if played as much as BTA

McKenna confirmed as Champo manager of the season. no surprise , 1 horse race really.

Their record isn't that great against the top 6 sides (10 pts from 30 available , 2w 4d and 4l) but when it comes to beating the fodder of the league they have been ruthless.

The last baggie to get sent off was the manager …
I know I’m in the minority here but my levels of respect for BTA have gone up…That Scumbag Ballard could have finished Maja’s career…I wish more of our players actually gave out a bit more …I am really disappointed in 2 others today, Townsend was next to useless and allowed their bloke the freedom to score…Wallace went straight after Ballard to shake his hand at the whistle.

We will be in the playoffs but we need to make some changes, starting with reach in for Townsend .

Not the players job to go out seeking revenge, thought it was awful behaviour myself. If i could fine them then i would, hopefully CC does.

I felt like I was watching a Sunday league pub team rather than a highly paid Championship team of professionals. Not good enough.

Yep, completely unacceptable.

Very unprofessional today. Ok Ballard did for Maja at their place but to lose a game because players seemed to have a vendetta against was crazy. BTA getting sent off cost us and Wallace who should know better getting booked for a foul on the same player is just amateurish.

Agree with this. Instead of it being WBA vs Sunderland FC as it should have been, it seemed more like WBA FC players v Ballard. Very unprofessional.

If we drop to 6th in table does that mean we play 3rd?

Yep

Don’t think it would have been today, were it not for BTA getting sent off as Sunderland were a poor side.

Agree with this. Sunderland are in decline. Just another champo team now. Once they lose Clarke i can see them struggling next season if they don't re-invest well.
