Blackman 7 not much to do but confident in the basics
Kilgour 7.5 back to the Alfie we know and love Craig 8 looked far more comfortable and marshalled the defence superbly Harries 8.5 the first 5 minutes he looked nervy but soon settled and played well, always seemed to have that extra bit of time.
Rodman 7,5 he adds that extra bit of class and energy. we always seem a better side when he' playing. Clarke 7.5 Ollies best game for a long time. Hargreaves 9 M.o.M. a high energy performance,he should have had a penalty when the keeper wiped him out and to be given a yellow for simulation was a total slap in the face by a hapless ref. Sercombe 7 playing centrally he looked much more comfortable. Leahy 7 a strong game and really got stuck in,
Mitchell-Lawson 8.5 very close to M.o.M, covered every blade of grass and its no coincidence that JCH looked so much better he looked the ideal partner for him. Clarke-Harris 8.5 he was really up for it, his first goal took me back to the days of the great Geoff Bradford who scored goals like that on a regular basis and thats high praise !
Subs: Daly 7 bags of energy, an ideal late sub to test Sunderlands tiring defence. Hare 7 great to see him back. Kelly N.o.l.e
Crowd 8 really got behind the team. Ref 2 absolutely dire he seemed to think we turned up to see him. We didnt,!!! I just hope he stays away from any game we are involved in. Sunderland 6 . Parkinson has stamped his style of cheating, harrasssing the ref and antagonising the opposition. They could be a far better team without all that and I cant see the fans putting up with it for much longer.
Kilgour 7.5 kid done good. Craig 7 steady. Harries 7 ok but don't like he could have been sent off.
Rodman 7.5 really liked his contribution. Clarke 6.5 assist for the goal but not much else. Worked hard. Hargreaves 8 best of mid for me. Sercombe 7.5 some nice deliveries. Leahy 7 nice overlap for first goal and unfortunate to get booked for a 50/50 header challenge.
Mitchell-Lawson 8 great movement and running. Clarke-Harris 8.5 m o m almost got hat trick and led the line well. This is the jch we all know and love. Rightly applauded from all parts of the ground on this memorable performance.
Subs: Daly 6 don't know what he contributed? Hare 6 didn't affect the game. Kelly nole.
Crowd 8 well done for turning up after two horrendous storms. Not weather. Ref 5.5 some baffling decisions, hard game to ref. Sunderland 5.5 an off day probably? Why the gamesmanship and play acting? Poor all round and their long travelling fans deserved better. See ya next season, howay lads!
