Yes, I know... Far too early to assess.. He says the same, but he's got lots of stats to compare with previous promoted teams from this division.

Far too early!
Haway, we are two games in and 4 points on the table.
Give Phil Parkinson 10 games.

Very true but last season was strange full stop.
Not only that but I think it's about time we gave a manager a good crack of the whip this time.
We are a joke how we chop and change managers.

A bit harsh considering what he inherited. Who knows but we could have went up last season had it continued.

I wonder how the league will show in the future because there was promotions and relegations.
Will it show us as a failure and how we spent another season in that league or will it be classed as null and void (can't see that with promotions though).


What was that you said again?

That's far too easy to say that.
Why could you not put the emphasis on the owner and say these managers are not getting the cash to improve the team.
There's far too many permutations so I would say give him 10 games then if it's not working get another manager to manage the same team, give him 10 games and if it don't work, get another........ and another.

To be really fair to the Sunderland managers, it's not an easy job here.

We're capable of being more attacking and positive, but no.. He'd rather be defensive and hope for a point every game.

He's a negative manager
