The Black Cats were tipped for a successful campaign at the outset of the new 2018/19 League One season, and look set to turn Jack Ross’ promotion dream into reality.
Whilst it is still early days, Sunderland are yet to lose a league game under Ross and look comfortable at this level.
A whole host of new players have been bought in to the Stadium of Light over the summer transfer window, strengthening their squad in all areas across the pitch.
Whilst the Black Cats do look on course for a prosperous season, it hasn’t been easy for the Sunderland faithful this summer.
Seeing star players depart your beloved club will never be easy for any fan base, but when it is largely down to wage issues due to back to back relegations, the wound will feel ever deeper.
We discuss what we believe to be the worst decision made by Sunderland over the last three months.
Letting Joel Asoro leave the club.
Of course, contracts play a part, but it will have been disappointing for the Black Cats to see Asoro leave.
The decision was slightly taken away from them, but he could’ve had such an impact.
Signing Jerome Sinclair.
Whilst Sinclair would tear up League One in almost every other side in the division, Sunderland just might not need the Watford man.
The youngster is up against the likes of Charlie Wyke for the starting striker’s spot, which could end up hindering his career in the long run.
