Already nearly a quarter of the way through the Premier League season, it’s time to assess what we’ve learnt about Martin O’Neill’s Sunderland.
The Wearsiders have tasted defeat and victory just once and a poor quality of pitch means they’re a game short on 18 of their rivals. I’d give Sunderland a D in terms of progress this year, but here’s a closer look at the good and bad revelations since August.
The Black Cats are still one of the most enigmatic teams in the league. Few sides beat them easily, but then they rarely dominate and win comfortably themselves. Transfer policy is also an interesting topic in the North East, a £10 million player who looked a bargain is struggling. While a much maligned £12 million man can’t stop scoring.
From Danny Rose to Lee Cattermole, this is an extensive guide to what has and hasn’t worked in the Premier League for Sunderland this year.
