Shearer blames Short.

That bloke from up the road, that couldn’t score a penalty past our Tommy Sorensen and that, was put in his place by the Argie wizard Julio Arca, as spoken about Sunderland relegation.

Shearer said Sunderland’s owner is disinterested in the club, and that is the biggest factor in Sunderland very poor season.  He believes that the problems on Wearside have been created in the boardroom, which has worked its way down to the dressing room.

 "I know fans in the region, well come of them, will be gloating because Sunderland have gone down but in reality they are great games for fans to be involved in, and certainly great games for players to be involved in.

"But Sunderland have had it coming to them for the last few years, haven't they?

"They’ve flirted with relegation for the last three or four years and had a few miracles out there but it was always going to happen because of the situation that they find themselves in."
