A day on and yesterday's point feels no more of an achievement. What about the player performances?
Objectively a canny point, subjectively there are no such thing as canny points when all you need are wins. Jason Steele was the surprise performance given that he wasn't abysmal. What did you make of it?
There was nothing pretty about the point earned at Molineux, but it's a point we were not expected to nick so who cares about that. Who'd have thought Sunderland were to be the first team to stop Wolves from scoring at home? Time to rate the players!
Sunderland travelled to the Pirelli Stadium where Chris Coleman would take charge of the Wearsiders for the second time, after his 2-1 loss at Villa Park midweek.
Chris Coleman's first game in charge ended like his previous six predecessors - in defeat. However, the game felt better and considering the state of the midfielders we had to select from, defeat against one of the league's more accomplished sides was the most likely outcome. Time to rate the players.
It's not often that I feel Sunderland deserved three points. But on the day we broke the record for being the worst English league home side ever, we did deserve it. But for some awful goalkeeping, we might have won, though admittedly we were given a helping hand too by Millwall's keeper. Time to rate the players in the final performance before Chris Coleman's take over.
Robbie Stockdale and Billy McKinlay took the reins for the Sunday dinnertime clash at the Riverside on Sunday, following Simon Grayson’s dismissal on Tuesday night.
A bit of a meh game, meh performance and extremely expected result at the Riverside. Sunderland looked more organised and compact than usual, but we lacked any ingenuity going forward. Time to rate the players.
"Going down might be fine, at least we'll win a few home games." I said this, or something very similar, many times towards the end of our disastrous Premier League campaign. Here I am now pondering the team selection of managerless Sunderland currently rock bottom of the Championship.
Sunderland went into the game knowing if they were to lose they’d go bottom of the league.
