It’s only a week since I wrote a piece explaining the urgent need for a director of football to take charge of the football side of the club. But a week is a long time in football.

We’ve played a game for a start and that’s almost always enough to raise the hackles of every Sunderland fan, especially when we play a team who were sitting in the middle of the lower half and struggle to score...

You could probably have heard the cries of disbelief emanating from the Past and Present beer garden in Gillingham when the team selection was made public. I’m sorry, Parky, but to remove the single element of pace from your team, Hume, in favour of a slogger (De Bock) just baffled me, and the subsequent formation never, a five minute spell early in the second half apart, looked like trou...
