Sunderland fans in dreamland as van Gaal faces yet more abuse

Sam Allardyce is doing what Sam Allardyce does best by making a real fist of retaining Premier League survival.

The Black Cats are now just a paltry point off North East rivals Newcastle who sit above the relegation zone, moving ahead of Norwich City.

They got there through a late headed winner from Lamine Kone, who continues to impress on Wearside since his January move from Lorient.

Clearly, it was much to the delight of the Sunderland faithful, who’s unlikely escape from relegation gathers pace. Yet again. For about the third year in a row.

Still, the goal has had a much wider effect on Manchester United as a whole, who have been condemned to yet another loss.

Though the infamously dubious goal panel may well mark it down as an own goal for David De Gea, the imposing Sunderland centre-back is feeling the love on Twitter.

Louis van Gaal, however, really is not.
