Misery Compounded: Home Defeat To Bournemouth Sees Sunderland Relegated From The Premier League…

It’s been on the cards for weeks if not months, but a 1-0 home defeat against Bournemouth today was enough to officially relegate Sunderland from the Premier League.

Josh King’s 12th goal of 2017 (coupled with Hull’s draw against Southampton) was enough to resign the Black Cats to their fate, leaving them 13 points from safety with just four games left to go.

Indeed, Hull were actually below Sunderland when Marco Silva took over in January, making David Moyes’ miserablist approach look all the more self-defeating.

His dour side now draw level with Crystal Palace and Norwich in having been flushed from the Premier League a joint-record four times.

Never has a hashtag looked more misplaced.

Good riddance.

    Pick yourselves up, dust yourselves down and carry on lads.

    Whilst relegation is never nice – and Sunderlands poor performance merits such a result – I’m always surprised at the massive outpouring of grief at the end of the season. There are always 3 teams relegated and one team that are champions. Sunderland are just one of the unlucky 3.
