PLAYER RATINGS: Parky's perfect home debut as the Lads run riot

Well, that was a bit more like it wasn't it?

Sunderland were sensational last night. After a competitive opening 20 minutes or so, the Lads put their foot on the pedal and didn't stop for the rest of the first half. They put the Tranmere to the sword before the second even kicked off, and still managed to find another two goals in cruise control.

It was great to see incisive, one-touch passing across the park with the players having the kind of swagger we haven't seen for a long time at the Stadium of Light. 

Results like these will make sure teams don't want to come here. We haven't imposed ourselves on teams at home since Sam Allardyce, but perhaps Parky can inject the same ruthlessness shown last night into the rest of the season. Since we're now playing catch up with our automatic promotion rivals, winning as many games at home as possible is going to be integral to any potential promotion charge.

Now it's time to scrutinise the superb team performance at player level. Who was mint? Who was only a little bit mint? If you scroll down below you'll see all the players involved last night (excluding Conor McLaughlin and Benji Kimpioka who were not on the pitch long enough), you can select a rating for each and leave a comment.
