NB: the fourth and fifth answers were added by readers. I cannot cast the vote those readers gave themselves so they – plus others if in agreement – should tick the relevant box now

We’re down and demoralised. Yes, we beat Hull. We may even win another game to salvage more pride, but probably not a place higher than 20th.

Some will put a gloss on relegation – “at least we’ll see some wins and some goals” – but we all know where we’d rather be next season.

It is obviously too soon to form a clear view of how we will fare in the Championship but let’s all have a quick first stab at assessing our chances. if you also add a comment below, there may be a prize in it for someone.

We have arguably frittered away Premier League status, for which our various tiers of management really must be congratulated, and now there’s no guarantee we’ll even make much of a stab at keeping our best players.

But then the players concerned have to look out for themselves, even if they have hardly covered themselves in glory in the Sunderland shirt. Who goes back to the clubs that loaned them? Adnan Januzaj (good riddance), Javier Manquillo (better of late, so good luck) and Jason Denayer (put in a few shifts, so ditto)

Our marketable assets: Jordan Pickford, Lamine Kone, Didier Ndong and – if it is not really true that some woodentop gave him a guarantee of a free transfer – Jermain Defoe.

David Moyes talks of Jordan Pickford needing to stay to maintain regular first-team action. He may not get it at top four clubs but would certainly fancy his chances at the midtablers reportedly chasing him, too. Love him, to stay; fully understand if he feels he must go.

What that leaves hardly bares thinking about. A Keano-style exploration of the market is absolutely necessary. He got it spot-on; can Moyes?
