Sunderland fans have endured a dismal couple of seasons as the club dropped two divisions in the space of two years but things are starting to look up.
Jack Ross’ side currently sit 3rd in the League 1 table and have only lost one of their opening 12 matches- a statistic that will certainly please the Sunderland boss.
But it will be hard to forget that Sunderland’s last two seasons have been some of the worst in the club’s history.
After a number of questionable signings in those seasons, the club were relegated to the third tier of English football, which saw manager Chris Coleman dismissed at the end of the season.
But what players have struggled in their spells with the club during a difficult couple of years for the club’s supporters?
Find out who we rated as Sunderland’s worst signings in the last five years here…..
