Loads of Sunderland fans have been discussing the form of Luke O’Nien, as the summer signing continues to struggle to make an impact at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland are in great form at the moment, scoring in each of their last ten League One games, winning seven and drawing four of their last 12 games in all competitions.
Josh Maja has been the star of the show, but plenty of the new signings are impressing as well, particularly Chris Maguire and Max Power.
O’Nien has been unable to force his way into the team though, starting just once in the league so far.

The young midfielder joined from Wycombe this summer with a great reputation, having racked up over 100 league appearances for the Chairboys despite only being 23.
The form of players like Power and Lee Cattermole has kept the all-action youngster out of action though, and some fans are starting to worry if the signing was a mistake.

He should be in ahead of McGeouch from what I’ve saw

I dont think so the way the midfield is playing at the moment. Good idea to have him on the bench.

Sure I read a Jack Ross comment that he is playing ONien in a different position to what he played at Wycombe. Seems unusual, but maybe he was bought as a Catts replacement, before Catts stayed and improved his performances?

He needs to earn his place. He hasn’t yet. Probably 4/5 choice in centre mid
