Hammers wreck Advocaat debut

Sunderland clinging to Advocaat's low-key approach

There was a Sunderland banner flying overhead at the Newcastle vs. Tottenham match reading "5 in a row Sunderland" reminding Newcastle who's won the last 5 derbys.

As manager Dick Advocaat takes Sunderland to Stoke on Saturday, attempting to rescue another dismal season, he needs all the motivational powers he can muster to avoid his dream of Premier League management turning into a nightmare.

With only six games left, ending with daunting visits to Arsenal and Chelsea, Sunderland simply cannot afford to lose at the Britannia Stadium. But on this season's form, they inevitably start the game as underdogs. Advocaat, a highly manager, knows this just as he...

Sunderland fly banner over Newcastle during their league game vs. Spurs

We never thought we'd say this, but spare a thought for poor Newcastle United.

The club prepared for Sunday's Premier League game at home to Tottenham with a successful fan protest aimed at club owner Mike Ashley. The protest (can see a bit of it here on video) dovetailed with news that it would be their worst home attendance of the season, and then, midway through the first half, came the ultimate ignominy: a banner from their biggest rivals gloating over the current record in the Tyne-Wear Derby.

Hopeless sense of relegation doom settling in at Sunderland

Manager Dick Advocaat faces a tall task in keeping Sunderland safe for another Premier League season.
Manager Dick Advocaat faces a tall task in keeping Sunderland safe for another Premier League season.

Arsenal's FA Cup semifinal duties leave Sunderland without a Premier League game this weekend, but not without the fear that another lamentable season is destined to end in tears.

Manager Dick Advocaat finds himself in a position that is, on paper, less ominous than the challenge facing former boss Gus Poyet at precisely the same stage of last season. But it is a position many consider to be graver.

The Dutch manager has six games to avoid relegation and collect the handsome bonus he has been...

Sunderland sliding toward relegation following abject loss to Palace

Sunderland were torn to shreds by Crystal Palace, who prevailed 4-1 at the Stadium of Light with Yannick Bolasie scoring a hat trick.

Dick Advocaat spoke before seeing his Sunderland side hammered 4-1 at home by Crystal Palace of settling for playing badly but winning in the battle for Premier League survival. The humiliation of a crushing defeat cannot have been in his thoughts.

He certainly saw the ragged band of low achievers he inherited from Gus Poyet play badly. But the winning part of his ideal outcome never looked possible in a lacklustre first half and became an impossibility early in the second as Palace swept into...

Sunderland win over Newcastle has breathed life into survival fight

Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat was delighted after Jermain Defoe's incredible volley won the derby with Newcastle.

Dick Advocaat's Sunderland have a golden opportunity to win their annual survival battle this weekend.

After the excitement of a fifth successive win over their bitter rivals Newcastle United at the Stadium of Light last Sunday, accomplished with that moment of magic from Jermain Defoe, another home match looms.

Crystal Palace are the visitors and Advocaat knows this is also game his team must win. Each of the other bottom-six strugglers face a nominally tougher task. Hull, Aston Villa and Leicester...

Premier League relegation predicted: Villa down with QPR and Leicester

Burnley manager Sean Dyche praises his side for keeping another clean sheet and gaining a crucial point in.

Tuesday night provided only inconclusive evidence for the relegation battle. Tim Sherwood's gilet lasted just 10 minutes when Christian Benteke scored Aston Villa's first, but the Belgian needed a hat trick to hold Queens Park Rangers to a 3-3 draw.

Rangers stay in the drop zone, while Villa continue to teeter above it. Good news for everybody else not involved in the dogfight because the rest of the Premier League season is turning into a procession; Chelsea will surely win the title, and the top...
