Sunderland faced the visit of Cardiff City and before the game fans knew it would be a tough test, Neil Warnock’s high flying Bluebirds sat in third place before kick off but hadn’t won a game in three - better than Sunderland who haven’t won in 5. Sunderland fans haven’t seen a win on home soil since a 1-0 victory against Watford in December 2016.
Can't really think of many more ways to describe how awful Sunderland are without repeating myself. Simon Grayson reckons that we're not too good to go down. Sunderland. Not too good to play in League One. How did it come to this? Time to rate the players, scroll down a little to do so.
Sunderland traveled to Goodison Park for the League Cup third round this being the first time Simon Grayson’s men have faced a Premier League team since relegation last season.
With the start we have made to the Championship season, dropping another two points is far from welcome. Away points are always welcome and, on paper, today's draw with Hull was a good point. However, considering our home discomfort, David Meyler's goal - assisted by another ex Black Cat Frazier Campbell - hurts. Time to rate the players!
How to describe today? Disastrous? Disgraceful? Discontent? Humiliating? I'm sure you chose better words and phrases discussing today's 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United with you family and/or mates. In reality, it was just another day at the Stadium of Light. I really don't want to, but tradition is tradition and its time to rate the players.
An all too familar terrible team performance makes it two league losses in a row. Sunderland made Barnsley look a top Premier League side for much of the mauling at Oakwell. How do you think the individual players did? Scroll down to score them!
Leeds United were the second visitors to the Stadium of Light this season and Simon Grayson would again go unchanged to the team that just about held on in Sheffield midweek.
Sunderland suffer their first defeat of the season in pretty drab fashion at the Stadium of Light. Still no wins at home highlights that despite a decent start things are far from rosy on Wearside. Time to rate the players - scroll down to do so!
Sunderland travelled to Hillsborough with an unbeaten start to the their championship campaign. Simon Grayson named an unchanged side to that which defeated Norwich 3-1 on Sunday. Sunderland would face former Black Cats Keiren Westwood and fans favourite Ross Wallace as well as Steven Fletcher who started on the bench.
Sunderland's opening fixtures have been tough so to be unbeaten is a canny achievement for a side nobody really expected would trouble the top of the Championship. Yesterday's performance away to Sheff Wednesday was excellent up to a point, but the players really faded away in the second half to the extent a point was all we were ever going to get.
