Nickname Black Cats
Stadium Stadium of Light
Time at Club:
Sunderland have appointed David Moyes as Sam Allardyce's successor at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland are currently enjoying their longest spell in the Premier League, with the 2016/17 campaign the club's tenth in a row. During that time the Black Cats have only finished in the top-10 just once (2010/11), while they've flirted with relegation on the majority of occasions, especially in recent years
Since returning to the top-flight in 2007 the Mackems have gone through their fair share of managers, including Roy Keane, Ricky Sbragia, Steve Bruce, Martin O'Neill, Paolo Di Canio, Gus Poyet, and Advocaat. This inconsistency has been a major factor in the Wearsiders' failure to challenge for a top-10 place, with chairman Ellis Short coming under fire from fans. However, with Big Sam at the helm supporters will be hoping that the club have a bright future ahead of them.
Sunderland have not recorded a win in the last 10 games, forcing 4 draws against Burnley, Tottenham Hotspur, Burnley and Liverpool. Defeats to Manchester City, Everton, Southampton, West Bromwich Albion, Burnley and Stoke City has seen them concede 17 goals at an average of 1.7 per game while scoring just 3 to give them a -14 goal difference over this period.
