BBC pundit sums up Sunderland in one damning sentence

Sunderland surrendered a 2-0 lead against West Ham on Saturday afternoon.

Grame Le Saux feels Sunderland's 2-2 draw against West Ham United sums up the way they play - because they both can't defend or take their chances, according to BBC Football.

Indeed, Dick Advocaat's men found themselves 2-0 up against the Hammers but blew the two-goal lead, ending up drawing with the east London side.

And Le Saux feels the result typifies Sunderland right now, as they were exposed defensively against West Ham but also failed to take a number of opportunities.

Le Saux told the BBC: "This match has shown the way Sunderland play, they do not defend and do not take their chances."

In essence, then, Le Saux is saying Sunderland aren't very good at either end or - in other words - not very good at playing football in general...

More worrying was the Sunderland boss's response after the West Ham draw. Advocaat says he's not fully sure he will be in charge at the Stadium of Light during their next game. And, truth be told, no one could begrudge him a break from the dire straits the Black Cats find themselves in.

For West Ham, it's a poor performance but a good point considering they were 2-0 down. For Sunderland, however, nothing can go right at the moment...
