Sunderland’s “last throw of the dice”

MarkLawrenson1Mark Lawrenson is once again back in the old routine – predicting an Irons defeat at Sunderland.

Discussing the Hammers he says: “They are one of several sides who have got 36 points, and look like they are safe.

Sunderland are obviously in a completely different situation at the bottom of the table, 10 points from safety.

I actually think the Black Cats will win this game, because they are at home and it is basically the last throw of the dice.

It is like a cup final for Sunderland because they have to win it. Like I have said before, though, they don’t just need one victory to save themselves now, they need three or four.”

  1. I love it when Lawro says we will lose then we normally win let’s hope his prediction runs to form 2-1 to the hammers COY

  2. Poor old Lawro he is on his last legs as a pundit lol

  3. Yeah Claret I’d be more concerned if he were predicting we will win.

  4. Something also tells me about this game is that if West Ham virtually put everything into just locking out the back, yes, “park the bus” so to speak then the Hammers cannot lose this game, but will definitely win it. Sunderland are absolutely desperate for a win, so much so that they will throw everything (what ever that is?) at West Ham, but with players like James Collins & co now in good form again, yeah just frustrate the hell out them West Ham, then hit them hard on the break, yes, after reading the reports this is their last throw of the dice. Lock it up, take your time and wait your chances, as if it isn’t us it’ll be someone else who finishes them, so we may as well grab the 3 points OK!
