Sunderland could well see themselves stuck in League One for another season if the third tier decides to end and use points per game to determine who goes up and who goes down.
The Black Cats are part of a gaggle of clubs looking to get themselves into the Sky Bet Championship but, with the financial side of the game becoming more and more desperate as you go down the leagues in this country right now, there appears a growing consensus that it is time to can this campaign in the lower tiers.
Sunderland, then, could be stuck in League One for another as they’d not be promoted via points per game and that poses plenty of question around the Wearsiders.
Can you get full marks on this Sunderland quiz?
Indeed, one such question has seen Black Cats HQ on Twitter ask fans about Phil Parkinson and his status as manager so let’s take a look at what has been said:

Get rid of the lot, scrap the club, start again as AFC Sunderland, Sunderland City, Sunderland Albion and go again ( how many different names can we come up with)
