When speaking to the fans directly this week, head coach Phil insisted that the club needed more pace and power squad. Both Parkinson and executive director Charlie Methven spoke to the fans at town- style meeting, which was live-tweeted by @Kingy78_.

There weren’t many positives from the duo’s comments, however, Parkinson’s insistence on a more physically dominant team was well-received by fans. Well, they agreed with him at least. The supporters are glad to see that a manager finally notices the obvious flaw in the squad. They have been saying it for ages.

However, some fans, while they agree with Parkinson, don’t think it will make a difference. They suggest that despite knowing where the squad needs improving, the recruitment team are incapable of doing their job correctly. They too are on the chopping block.

What do we think?

The first step of recovery is acceptance. It appears understands where the squad need to improve. Hopefully, for Sunderland fans, this is the first sign that things will begin to get better.
