That could unsettle the team although there is always the "bounce".
It only needs to cost them 6 points (3 draws instead of wins) while the new guy sorts out the squad and they won't catch us.

Yes, the bounce we saw under our last manager. ;)

I think it's only a benefit for them to be honest. It obviously depends who they appoint but Ross was taking them nowhere and failed to get up last season with last seasons squad which is one of, if not the most expensive squad in League One history. I think it's only a matter of time before they come towards the top of the league now.

They were unhappy with him last year, so its no great surprise.

Does that mean the Michael Dell takeover is close to completion?

The strong rumour is that the takeover is OFF. Michael Dell is hugely rich, but he was only going to be a passive investor of what is chicken-feed for him.

Sunderland are cursed, They'll be in L2 in a couple of years time.

Words are a medium that reduces reality to abstraction for transmission to our reason, and in their power to corrode reality inevitably lurks the danger that the words will be corroded too. It might be more appropriate, in fact, to liken their action to excessive stomach fluids that digest and gradually eat away the stomach itself.

Not good news for us.

For whatever reason he was struggling there with a good squad, the right manager can turn that round and it will make it more diffiuclt for us.

Still wish he had come here though!

"It's only a matter of time."
But in that time, games have to be played and they could lose ground on us.
It's only a matter of time before Bolton start winning but will it save them?

If Dell were to get involved, it would be of huge benefit to Sunderland. I hope it does fall through.

Really? The guy who failed to draw himself out of League One with the best squad by miles and he even got to the FL Trophy final and failed to win that as well. Did you see the standard of football he was playing when they came down here? He's a poundland Mick McCarthy. Baring in mind he essentially achieved what pub manager Paul Hurst did at Shrewsbury how would he have been any better with our budget? He's never even managed a top tier team in his own country let alone in England.

Jack Ross is tosh. Let's stop fantasising about these so called young and exciting managers and realise you need someone with a bit of experience and some past top level success here to make things work here, especially with Evans as owner.

Wonder if our success* had anything to do with it. We're making the league look a doddle without having to play all that well.

*1/4 of the season success, clearly.

Unlike Hurst, I expect Ross will have a successful career in management. I wouldn't be shocked if he returns to Scotland over an English club.

Sunderland Fans have been wanting a change for some time, clearly they feel someone else has a better chance of steering Sunderland up the table. However, I am not sure the current front runner in the odds is the answer as a quick fixer.

Sunderland fans were very critical of him. He really should have secured automatic promotion with the squad he had last season.

I’d disagree personally. I don’t think their much cop at all to be honest. Given the size of the club, and the budget they had last season (although I appreciate it was still drastically slashed from the year before), I actually thought Ross recruited really poorly.

It really would've served both us and him if he had come here instead of Hurst. I don't expect we'd have gone up or anything, but I imagine we would've stayed up, playing good football and he probably wouldn't have got so many people offside.

Shame, because I think he'll be a superb manager.

There is enough talent forthem to be at the top challenging and he should have done better but you have to ask is there something very wrong behind the scenes at Blunderland. Bit of a poisoned chalice that job.

‘Played good football’ ... one of the reasons why Sunderland fans wanted him gone was because how sh*te the football was!
