‘Please God no’ – Plenty of Sunderland fans react as managerial search nears conclusion

Sunderland’s search for a new manager looks to be coming closer and closer to an end, with the Black Cats said to be in talks with former Bolton boss Phil Parkinson.

The Wearside club are on the lookout for a new manager after parting company with Jack Ross last weekend, after winning just five of their first 11 games this term.

Plenty of names have since been linked with the vacant role at the Stadium of Light, with Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth and Wigan Athletic chief Paul Cook among those mentioned.

But The Sun claim that Sunderland are now set to hold talks with Phil Parkinson over becoming their new manager, as they look to find a replacement for Ross.

The 51-year-old has been without a club since leaving Bolton Wanderers in August, with the club being hit with several off-field problems that nearly resulted in them being expelled from the EFL.

He has experience of winning promotion from League One before, though, winning promotion with Colchester United and Bolton Wanderers under limited budgets.

Here, then, we take a look at Sunderland fans’ reactions to the Parkinson news…
