It’s fair to say it’s been a relatively underwhelming season for Sunderland in League One.
The Black Cats would have been expecting to firmly push for the automatic promotion spots, however they currently don’t even sit in the play-off spots, with them in seventh place.
As has been a trend at the club over the last few seasons, they seem to show spurts of life and really kicking into gear on the pitch, but it doesn’t seem to last, with the consistency simply not there.
Are these 18 Sunderland facts true or false? Have a go now!
With the football season currently paused, fans, owners and managers will be taking stock of their squads and identifying any players that could be shifted upon the completion of the season.
One Black Cats player who has come up for debate on social media is forward Charlie Wyke.
The 27-year-old has been blighted with injury niggles during his time at Sunderland, though this season has managed 27 League One appearances, notching five goals.
On Twitter, Sunderland fan account Black Cats HQ asked the following question about Wyke, and it caused a mixture of responses: ‘Should we get rid of Charlie Wyke in the next transfer window?’
Here’s how Sunderland fans felt about it…..
No, would be good 3rd choice

Yes – tries his heart out but for me he’s easily the worst out of our forwards.
His first touch is awful – ball bounces yards off his feet every time he receives it.
Somehow gets dominated in the air far too easily for his size.

He can score the occasional goal, but we need better if we ever want to get promoted again, so id day sell

Couldn't give him away. He'll leave for free when his contract is up

I would say no. However if someone offered whatever we paid for him (500000?) I would sell. So as always it depends on money.

For what we would get for him I would say we keep him.
Who would we replace him with anyway if we stay in league 1🤔
