Sunderland fans reject claim about who’s to blame for their misfortune

The Sunderland fanbase has been very vocal this season with a number of individuals bearing their share of criticism, but considering their failures on and off the pitch that is only fair.

However, the opposition from some has been blamed as a cause for the Black Cats’ failures in recent weeks, with a bold claim suggesting the club could be in the Championship by now if Stewart Donald had been backed properly.

It has also been suggested that Jack Ross was hounded out of the club, but considering he was looking like taking the club backwards with the team lingering outside of the play-off places, it was right to depart with him.

The unfortunate thing is that Phil Parkinson has proved to be a disaster with three wins in 15 games, but if someone is to blame for that it is Donald, not the fans, as these supporters point out.

There is clearly a lot of animosities towards the owner and the fact that it exists for several reasons means he is ultimately to blame for Sunderland’s downfall over the past few months.

From lacking honesty to not backing his managers enough in the transfer market, crucially selling Josh Maja last January for example, it is clear that he has made some bad decisions.

Who said this... “If there’s a bit of rain about, it makes the surface wet.”

What’s more, while fans have been vocal online they have backed the team in their numbers at matches, with Parkinson only saying on Sunday how key the Black Cats’ faithful were to their win against Doncaster, which is why they feel this claim is out of order.
