Didn't take long! Been there 6 months, 3 of which was a break I between the season!

 

An underperforming manager getting the sack...strange one that!

 

You say that as though Sunderland are some wonderful model to be followed...

The catalyst of his sacking is supposedly a training ground bust up yesterday morning lead by our very own Lee Cattermole who told the Italian that the squad had lost faith in him. - The Guardian.

I'm sure I'm in a minority here but I feel sorry for Di Canio.

From what I've read he didn't have much say in the players brought in, tried to change their fitness regime and the way they played but like most footballers today they spat their dummies out because they didn't want to do it.

His singling out of players for criticism was never a good thing but I believe he should have had more of a chance for his methods to work.

Sunderland knew what he was like when they employed him so they look very foolish to act as if they weren't expecting this.

And why doesn't it surprise me Cattermole was involved.

I guess thats what happens when you try to act like "The Special One" without having had his level of success. Apparently his managerial style was quite Mourinho-esque, in the sense that you either did things his way, or not at all.

 

Maybe it was too soon in his managerial career to take on a Premier League club. Lets face it, Roy Keane (after getting them promoted) and Steve Bruce didn't fare much better.

 

I think he was probably the wrong appointment to begin with, but it doesn't help when you've got a bunch of bolshy players who think they know better than the manager. Feel sorry for him to an extent in that respect.

 

Still think he could do a job for a Championship or League 1 club. Still plenty of time for him to make the step up 5-10 years down the road.

Nonperforming Manager or TEAM?? Personally I just dont think it is right that players can get away with what they do.

 

Regardless of how they feel about the boss they still should apply themselves 100% in every game and take some pride in the club that pays their salary.

    • What's been ignored in all of this transfer noise is , a striker scored on his debut ,  COB
    • Found a Dutch defensive midfielder Mees Hoedemakers who may fit the requirements, unfortunately again in the highlights his defensive ability not shown.  The Italians in the previous post and this player have valuations of 1.2 million euros or less if Transfermkt can be believed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTj5iZhK0Rs Also an Australian box to box midfielder I'd recommend Boro have a look at is Angus Thurgate, a big improver last season, became more of a threat going forward and  definitely handles the defensive side as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGb-QtRhfas
    • Choudhury looks he would be a top signing if he wants to come here, someone said he's rejected us twice though. Here are two other defensive midfielders I've come across on database searches, both Italian. Pity that their short highlights don't include their defensive efforts, but they both look like they can control play in possession well. Both also have been loaned extensively by their parent clubs, they might be interested in a permanent home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do1xIWsDD8A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYhm0Rt6PTk
    • Clearly Parker not the only coach that isn’t in charge of recruitment 
    • Just a thought but....   General concensus is we need a lcb and at least two midfielders. And in reality the only ones we've been "linked" with are greaves, choudhary and hannibal. All British based players. We also need at least one more striker, and we've been linked with hoppe, Henry, larsen to name but 3. I wonder if there are possibilities of us finding a gem or two for the defensive and midfield positions from abroad too. Especially given the eredivisie link and we have only really been linked to 1 player from the Dutch league.
