'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cascarino Tips Sunderland And Pompey To Survive

Tony Cascarino, pundit for the New Football Pools says 'indifferent' Sunderland and 'steadied ship Portsmouth' will survive.

"Sunderland are a strange team in many ways as I don't know what to make of them. They should survive if they can pick up a point at Portsmouth as that should be enough with Hull unlikely to pick up anymore points and Sunderland possessing a far better goal difference than either Boro or West Brom.

The next match at Portsmouth is an interesting one with a point arguably being enough for both to stay up when you look at Hull's fixtures. To be fair, Portsmouth are more or less safe already barring a minor miracle so they may come out aiming to make sure in what is their last home game of the season. However, they have Wigan away on the last day of the season and Pompey are more than capable of getting something up there too the way the Latics are finishing the campaign. Paul Hart has come in and steadied the ship and done an ok job with a squad that was in 7th under Harry Redknapp earlier in the season. He has made them harder to beat so a draw is most likely.

Sunderland have been indifferent this season but they are more than capable of a point at the weekend but I wouldn't expect them to get anything at home to Chelsea on the final day. Luckily for them Hull are unlikely to get anything at Bolton so a single point should keep them up."

CASCARINO VERDICT: Safe

and the point is what? The results on Saturday will determine what could happen on Monday. Either way I'm sure Sunderland want it more than us.

Oh well, now that Cass has spoken we can all relax then. What a load of *********. Hardly cutting edge punditry, is it?

We are safe now, I know its not mathmatical, but Hull are struggling and Boro adrift

I agree paultsmouth. Hull will lose at Bolton and we will be safe. Fulham aren't easy to beat, so Hewcastle might also lose. That would be extra safe for us!

I don't see us going down. never have. it would take an amazing fluke for us to go down now - and I simply don't think theres a chance in hell of it happening!
