League One Sunderland manager sacked!

Sacking the manger whilst 3rd in the table is bad enough, but to have no one else lined up and ready to fill the role is very poor from the board. Knee jerk.

At the end of December, Johnson won MOTM. He was gone by the 30th January.

Weird, self-obsessed club. Genuinely, if Sunderland didn’t have a football team, would anyone know it was there? What’s it famous for? Just shipbuilding or some other industry that went out of fashion at the end of the 19th century?
 
I don't like Ainsworth one bit but - putting that bitterness aside - you have to think he'd be an excellent choice up there. Robbo too, but Ainsworth has actually got over the line with a team light years away from Sunderland's resources. He always seems to have Wycombe in the mix too.
 
If I were Sunderland I get Warnock in.

If not this season, defo next season they’d be promoted.

Yep, Colin would probably do a good job there and be a good fit for the Championship too.
 
Apparently ex Preston manager Alex Neil is being linked. I think that would be a good appointment.

Much as I get some enjoyment from the Sunderland forum, they are generally good fans who still attend in numbers and as somebody else pointed out here, when you're up there they are decent people.

As for writing off the entire town, no wonder people perceive a north-south divide. Oh and they do have the most productive car factory in the UK, which has been there since the early 80s!
 
Neil is a fantastic appointment. Really shrewd manager who walked into Risdale making some horrific decisions during his time at Preston.

Far more chance of them becoming a force for the rest of the season now, definitely have put themselves in a stronger position, albeit at least he doesn't get a window to strengthen. Keane at this level would have brought the media circus but not the kind of astute management Neil will bring.

Actually quite annoyed as was hoping he'd get a mid tier Champ club rather than be direct rivals for us. Would say the main chance of failure would be given a lot of Sunderland fans would probably prefer a 'name' and could try and hound him out if he doesn't get them winning every week against those teams they consider 'beneath them' (so everyone in L1 essentially).
 
Sunderland have appointed Alex Neil on a 12 month rolling contact 🤔
 
12 month rolling contract... That shows faith in the appointment then.
 
Sunderland 1 - Doncaster (!) 2

I imagined the total meltdown tonight, happening right now, in front rooms, kitchens and pubs all around Sunderland ....and smiled .... before transforming my emotions and feelings into the happiness of words.


Id rather be a flasher than a Mackem..

Replica shirts on their back
They're a mob - red and black
Cheering clowns who don't care
From their "Entitlement" lair at :
The Bears, Cubs and Masters
(formerly the Sunderland Arms, alongside the ground and now renamed and under new management with a strict U21 policy)

Their forums a joke they're always having a poke
and theyre woke!
Wake up and get real
cos the feelings not real
Mackems signings are s**t
within days they dont fit
Its a mirage
Reflecting the hope of all those at their "Entitlement" lair at :
The Bears, Cubs and Masters
(formerly the Sunderland Arms, alongside the ground and now renamed and under new management with a strict U21 policy)

Id rather be a rapist than a Mackem
Case in point
#1-2 Donny really?
#noteveneverfuckingnearly
#howfuckingbadareyoumackem?
#whenbottomteamdonnycansmackem!


A shout out to Donny manager as possible manager of the month?. Not all about 5/5 but beat Mackems and Dons away. Our choice surely!

“See you again next season” they said after the 90th minute winner.

Maybe not.

Enjoy fawning over Karl. Your gravy stained messiah.

Small time pre-match puppet show.

Shall I write you a song…?

At least we were the league’s top scorers
Great entertainers in a city of dreaming spires
The banks of a river no-one can name
Replete with empty punts
Stranded like a tiny sturgeon
Laying bitter eggs into each other’s mouths
Pretending your three sided square is a triangle
Whilst deluded youths shine the testicles of an ox, determined not to turn upside down
For fear of showing the true colours
Yellllllllows, angry crabs, masquerading as optimists, in a city that ceased to be your own 800 years ago.

Place

You’d rather be a rapist than a Sunderland fan…? Wow. You absolute cretin.
