League one for a long while
Enobakhare and Thomas have gone but they still have Hiwula.Coventry you say. I came all the way from California to watch us play them at home last year. I remember that game quite well. I remember they had fast forwards who could play one touch football. Did they sell them all?
The problem now is that opponents know they have Sunderland’s card marked. High tempo and energy and they can overrun the midfield and defence. Game plans like Scunthorpe become the template to repeat.We get thumped off a side struggling to keep its place in the league and haven’t beaten a team in the top half all season. As it is anything less than a 5-0 defeat would be a positive.
