Sunderland's 1-1 draw with Stoke City at the Britannia has divided opinion on Wearside. The optimist will say a point away from home is never a bad result, while we can take credit in the number of chances we created. Others, however, see the failure to take those chances as the final nail being placed so delicately onto the coffin. Which camp do you fall in? Rate the players below to have your say.
Somehow, for only the fourth time this season, Sunderland came back from a goal down to salvage a point, this time against relegation rivals Hull City. The miserable start was the opposite to what was needed, from players and manager alike, but substitutions proved to be key moments in this one. But can another slow start be forgiven?

‘Dire’. ‘A joke’. ‘Dreadful’. ‘Absolutely pathetic’. ‘Appalling’. ‘Disgraceful’. ‘Bone idle’. ‘Ineffectual’. ‘Embarrassment’. ‘Relegation form’. ‘Sloppy’. ‘Clueless’. Those are just some of the ways our writers described the performance of the eleven that lined up last night against an awful QPR side in an awful run of form and lost. But now it’s your turn! Rate the players below* and let us know how you feel after another mind-numbing display.
It wasn't to be two league wins on the trot, but a draw was still a positive result. The balance of play was disappointing, we created very little. Here is your chance to rate the players' individual performances.
There was an overwhelmingly positive feeling upon leaving the Stadium of Light last night after Sunderland scored twice in an impressive display to beat a disappointing Burnley side. You’ve read our player ratings, so now it’s your turn. Could you pick a man of the match?
The new system experiment ended in defeat, however SAFC looked far more dangerous going forward and could be considered unlucky for both goals conceded. What did you make of the individual player performances? Time to have your say...
We don't get to see too many wins but SAFC managed to get into tonight's fourth round draw after edging Leeds. Here's your chance to rate the players.
I feel a bit weird about yesterday. The biggest positive, I hope, is that Gus has realised just how important Emanuele Giaccherini and, to lesser extent, Ricky Alvarez can be to us. Anyway, here is your chance to rate the players for the first time in 2015.
Yet another draw that really wasn't worth staying up to see the highlights. Despite a slightly more intense final few minutes, Sunderland again lacked that creativity and killer touch in front of goal and left the midlands with just a single point after playing almost the entire second half with an extra man. Here's your chance to have your say on the performance by rating the players below.
Sleeping on it has probably made me even more annoyed about how poor we were yesterday. A win would have seen us eight points off the drop zone. Now, though five is still a decent cushion, I feel like we are incapable of beating the teams we need to be beating at home - and they make up most of our home fixtures for the rest of the campaign. Here's your chance to vent a little by rating the player performances below.
