Sunderland fans slate Charlie Wyke

Sunderland left their clash with Coventry City frustrated, coming out of it on the end of a 1-0 loss against the high-flyers.

It was an even game, in which the home side had one more shot but the Black Cats held 3.8% more possession, which will potentially add to the frustration felt after they were eventually edged out.

A lot of that negative attention has ended up being aimed towards their striker: Charlie Wyke.

One fan has referred to the 27-year-old as “the worst striker in our history”, while another suggested that he “contributed nothing in that game’.

Wyke had four shots during the match, but only one of them went on target – in addition to making no dribbles or key passes. The Sunderland fans’ damning verdicts seem valid.

Since joining Sunderland, Wyke has 11 goals and six assists in 58 games across all competitions, indicating that he isn’t the most prolific player.

This performance, as well as those in the past, has got plenty of Sunderland fans calling for Phil Parkinson to drop the striker, who played the full 90 minutes against Coventry.

Will Grigg has started just eight League One games this season, and the suggestion is that he should be given a chance to start over Wyke.

If Sunderland are to get promoted, they will need their key men to perform on a regular basis, and the feeling is that Wyke simply isn’t doing that.

Meanwhile, one man could struggle to achieve their aims at Sunderland.
