strange that both MON and SB couldn't get any success with Sunderland but did well elsewhere. MON got a reasonable amount of money to spend, the jury is out on how well he spent it. Fletcher is an obvious success, Johnston hasn't done much so far, it's too early to make a call on Graham. But the rest of the team, most of which he inherited, are very average. What MON does next will be interesting.
Martin O'Neill has been a good and intelligent manager for a long time. Sunderland has been a special and different club for a long time. Somehow I am not interested in them any more.
Some odd comments about lack of money available to O'Neil. £30 million provided in 6 months would seem rather a lot of money, not just to me, but to more than half of the teams in the Premier League. Criticism of Ellis Short is untoward - he has put money into the club, unlike the Glazers and Hicks/Gillette, and has had precious little return.
weird appointment but difficult to have sympathy for O'Neill. Poor season and had more money to spend than most. Needs to look at Swansea and West Brom this year and take his medicine
@61 and firing on 0 cylinders it makes total sense for Sunderland to look towards the future. Late in the day if you ask me but a good appointment in di Cannio, nevertheless!
a bit off-topic but its what alot of peeps are thinking, Chelsea 1-0 man utd yehahahah granma great balls of yeeerhaa'ss (man utd are a good team in England but very poor when compared them to europes elite. again failure in Europe, there squad is there worst for decades yet huge sums spent. man utd are winning the league by default. being best of bad lot,in the uk, its nothing to be proud of
By the way I am a Newcastle fan, but believe I don't want Sunderland to go down, below is my honest opinion about DiCanio's apppointment. But this message for my unwise and crowing fellow mag fans posting on here is WE ONLY HAVE 33 POINTS WHICH IS ONLY 2 MORE THAN SUNDERLAND, WE ARE NOT SAFE SO STOP POSTING RUBBISH!!!!!!!
I hope this works for Sunderland, maybe just maybe DiCanio will fire the team up and he will get some necessary results and points out of them. The whole appointment seems to be about putting some fire into the Sunderland performances but he doesn't have much time, he doesn't know the players and he cant sign any new players if he doesn't like what he's got. I unfortunately think he will fail!!
Adam Johnson had better watch out - I've heard Di Canio is quite fond of the right wing.
It must be April 1st.Sunderland have appointed Di Canio!
Martin has delivered at each club he's been at, achieving well above what the teams were capable of. Celtic in the final of a major European competition and villa finishing in the top 10, 3 seasons straight. Bottom line these players need to man up and deliver the goods. Sunderland is a working mans club with players who wouldn't know a days hard work in their life.
#452 number9 - wrong thread cbeebies is somewhere else on bbc
O'neill had to go....results were poor,style of football dismal....like Leicester used to play....rubbish to watch.Wasn't he supposed to be in the frame for Man utd? laughable now that idea,forget the timing,why sack him when they're down?As for Di canio,who knows......results will tell....some tough games coming....I think they're doomed....
