Do you blame David Moyes for Sunderland's relegation from the Premier League in the 2016/17 season?
YES, IT'S HIS FAULT
NO, I DON'T BLAME HIM
A 5-1 defeat to Chelsea.

What do we think?
As per the BBC, Moyes resigned from his position as Sunderland boss following the club’s relegation from the Premier League in the 2016/17 campaign, which ended their “10-year stay in the top flight”. The Black Cats finished that season at the bottom of the Premier League table, 16 points from safety.
As Sunderland were relegated from England’s top-flight during the 2016/17 campaign under Moyes’ leadership, it’s not too surprising to see that these Black Cats fans don’t have fond memories of his time at The Stadium of Light.
