Couldn't find the more up to date thread but looks like Sunderland have sacked Jack Ross and also that their takeover to Michael Dell's group might be off.

The takeover has collapsed now 

No surprise that Ross has been sacked. Alot of Sunderland fans wanted her gone in the summer. 

Current Betting favourite(Sky Bet) is Daniel Stendal

I see joe nuttall is yet to score. Will be a matter of time before he descends down the leagues. Clears as day he wasn’t good enough

Still scored more than Ben Brereton.

You may well be right but he was handled badly by Mowbray and his confidence will be shot.

I read that Gareth Ainsworth has now jumped to number 1.

Why would anyone take the Sunderland job? Ego? Desperation?

Must be injured as he didn't even get on the bench for an appalling  Blackpool team on Monday. I'm with you though, never a footballer for me.

Money, at a guess.

I see the match between Kidderminster Harriers and Farsley Celtic was postponed due to "international call-ups". Are some of their players from San Marino and Liechtenstein by any chance?

Looking like Phil Parkinson will take over at Sunderland

Poor Sunderland. They never seem to get it right.

I think he is a good choice for them and the squad. Has Promotion on his CV

So does Mowbray...

And Owen Coyle.

On another theme I see Henderson at Rochdale is banging the goals in again. He'd have been good, and much cheaper,  back up for Graham instead of Big Ben a season ago. Too late now I think.

Sunderland seemingly going for the cheap route, can only presume many other choices have rejected them. Cant see Sunderland fans being overly happy with that appointment.

He's been a manager for sixteen years and won promotion three times. Simon Grayson has a better track record and look what happened to him. 

Overall, an uninspired, low-key appointment which will hardly rally the supporters.

Going for the cheap option? 

What other choices and who are these? 

Parkinson worked miracles at Bolton.

Grayson was awful at Sunderland. Made some awful signings there

I've got a good pal who's a Sunderland lad. I've been texting him. He's underwhelmed with Parkinson but his theory is it's poisoned chalice. If he gets them up there are big money people in the background waiting to step in. They will come in then and probably fire him so they can get a more high profile manager,  and if he doesn't get them up he'll probably get fired anyway.

Miracles? Promotion from a terrible league, then last day survival and relegation before the shit storm of this summer. He was of course under restrictions but surely miracles would have entailed survival in the spite of all that. As it was, he failed but understandably so.

I think Bolton fans wanted him gone mid way through last season, obviously that was before things really unravelled. Daniel Stendel fresh from a promotion in the same league last season is an obvious one. If he wouldnt be interested, which would surprise me, people like Ainsworth, or even Adkins/Rowett/Neil Harris, I do wonder if one of those would take it.

They could have done worse ie an emotionally driven appointment like Kevin Phillips who was mooted.

Look at financial problems at the club. Ken Anderson has his bosees. Embargo in.promotion season

Kevin Philips? You complained at Bowen getting a manager job at Reading now you suggest Sunderland appoint an novice in terms of experience of that league and Sunderland need promotion.

Read it again Chaddy, he said they COULD have done worse using Philips as an example of how.
