This has been another horrendous year for Sunderland, one that’s failed to buck the trend at the Stadium of Light.
Once again, the Black Cats failed to achieve promotion from League One and are now enduring a third successive year at this level.
For a club with such rich history, one that were in the Premier League so recently, it’s far from ideal.
However, are they beginning to turn the tide towards the end of 2020? Stewart Donald sold his majority stake to Kyril Louis-Dreyfus on Christmas Eve and they have also sacked Phil Parkinson.
Lee Johnson arrived and they have lost just once since he took charge, being beaten on his first day in the job. Together with Kristjaan Speakman and their new owners – Dreyfus and Sartori – there are reasons to be positive and hopeful for a brighter future.
Of course, Sunderland supporters won’t want to count their chickens but 2021 could well be their year.
So, what better way to bring it in than partaking in our big fat Sunderland quiz of the year for 2020, we bet you can’t get 100% correct…
