Taking that EFL Trophy seriously hurt them last season
Jack Ross, tough gig at Sunderland - huge resources yes, but absilute basket case of a club.
6th in league and challenging again for promotion. Should have been given more time.
Had the impression it had been steadied up a bit since relegation really, see the Americans on about buying them/invest have also pulled out today.

I don't know too much about football outwith rangers but in my opinion anything other than running away with league one when you're a team with sunderlands resources is absolutely shocking. Should that league not be a canter for them?
signed will Grigg ,Grigg couldn’t score in a brothel right now , he’s fuucking hopeless

7 - Of current teams within the top four tiers of English league football, only Liverpool (1) and Manchester City (6) have lost fewer league games (excl. playoffs) than Sunderland (7) since Jack Ross was appointed ahead of 2018-19

Folk have already mentioned Heart, Hibs and the Sheep.

There will be quite a few arses twitching in the SPL now. One of these clubs will be looking at him as a serious replacement for them.
A think he could do a decent job at hearts hibs or Aberdeen to be fair

Lies, damned lies and statistics.

He also drew 25 games. Doubt Liverpool and Man City combined drew close to that.

Knee jerk reaction by Sunderland as they are very much still in the mix. Obviously the blow was softened with a pay off.

Doubt if McInnes is going anywhere soon or Levien will allow himself to sack himself. Hibs is a decent option for Ross who might do well there.

Too many draws killed him. I don't think he's a bad manager but will be interesting to see how he comes back from this.

I still don't think Sunderland are certs to go back up by any means.

He is likely to get a job up here on the strength at his time at St Mirren. Wouldn’t be surprised if he lands up at St Johnstone.

Sunderland fan at work said the fans weren't happy last season, too many draws and the football is too defensive and poor viewing. Same has continued this season so not surprised.

Not sure he'll walk into a team of hearts or hibs standard tbh.

Will end up at Hibs as they are more likely to sack their manager before the sheep do.

No chance he goes to Hearts while Levein in boardroom.

Good manager and know a relative of his very well. He prefers them though.

Wonder who Sunderland will go after, they might go for McInnes as they tried to get him before Ross. Sheep fans would be delighted with that

Had been coming if honest it didn't work out in the end

Only had 9 month left of his contract so doubt any pay-off would be huge

The club are no longer the basketcase some have posted about - simply tided up and working within budget

I wish him well where ever ends up

He’d easily walk in to a Hearts Hibs type job. Seems odd those Sunderland fans never took to him and wanted him out when he only lost seven games
 
I thought he'd be a disaster at Sunderland but quite the reverse. That must be their highest league position for ages. Nevertheless he may come back to Scotland better for this experience and I hope he won't cause us any problems in the future.

Could swing that round and say biggest budget in the division has had a year in division to plan ahead and faltering

Found his level at St Mirren or got landed with a impossible job at Sunderland ?
I’m not sure how you can possibly work out that he found his level at at mirren. It’s a massive jump to Sunderland from there, and an incredibly difficult job as the club is a mess.
