players are on to much money, they no 1 contract sets them up for life, many start to tred water once that's achieved, any player worth there salt wouldn't want to warm benches, Micheal owen is an example stayed at man utd even though he knew he would only play a few games. sunderland have under performed and questions were asked and oneil was found wanting this time
Sunderland players were out partying when they heard of MoN's departure, apparently they were shocked , bless them.
S*nderland Football? ClubThe gift that keeps givingSacking a manager with a half decent track record of getting average teams into the top half of the table and replace him with a circus act.Enjoy the championship you sad Mackems
erumaegil - I agree with you, O'Neill has lost some of his spark. He looks jaded in his appearance too - his management style was always based on relentless energy & enthusiasm, and something seems to be missing now. Its not necessarily age - look at Sir Alex! - but perhaps in O'Neill's case it is just his style of management has worn him out.
Let's see if Di Canio can get Sunderland up at the first attempt.
Kevin Kilbane is wrong, the appointment of O'Neill was the mistake and if the sacking needs to be criticised, it is the timing not the actual sacking that can be argued. Villa are in their current mess due to O'Neills spending, every team he has had play dour hoof ball with little that is pleasing to the eye. Friends in Scotland said he was successful, but the style of football was poor.
I really feel for Martin O'Neill, at least he didn't leave a sinking ship on his own account. Sad day for Sunderland, showing how mercenary and knee jerk they actually are!
MON had something special as a manager but over the last few years seems to have lost the magic touch. I don't know what Sunderland's fincances are like but they should not be scrapping with clubs half their size.
I think MON would've kept Sunderland in the premier league. He was once touted as a potential replacement for SAF. The timing of his sackings was absolutely ludicrous ! I hope Wigan and qpr survives and Sunderland and Aston villa to go down now
I hope that Fascist leads you down, never cared much for Villa or Wigan but will be cheering them on now. Sad day for English football.
Firing your manager after the transfer window closes is just stupid.
O'Neill is a decent man indeed and now they've hired a fascist. Just what football doesn't need.
O'Neill was a decent man, decent record to date too. Sunderland are a proper club, great fans, but time for a reality check. Can you ever see DiCanio lead a club to a European final as O'Neill did?Now they've opted for this: www.telegraph.co.uk/news/1506262/Im-a-fascist-not-a-racist-says-Paolo-di-Canio.htmlEnglish football continues to sell its soul.
Sussex by the Sea ......haha poor Villa fan,its always the boss,never the team.you did well with him,dont forget it when your in the championship.
