The Black Cats faithful will hope O’Neill will bring his backroom team of Steve Walford and John Robertson with him. Cockney boy Walford has been with him through thick and thin, although long-time lieutenant Robertson has indicated he would like to call it a day. The Scot has, however, hinted he would be prepared to work as a part-time consultant. That’s why it is not 100 per cent certain that Bruce’s No.2 Eric Black will follow his former boss out of the exit door. Like O’Neill, Black – who looks after the team today – has strong Celtic connections and would like to work with the ex-Parkhead chief
Wouldn't mind Black staying with us hes a decent lad.
