Chris Coleman Leaves Sunderland Along with Kit Symons

Recommended Posts

Chris Coleman says he would like the chance to get Sunderland back on an upward curve, after failing to prevent the club from suffering a second successive relegation.

The former Wales boss says it will be impossible for things to move forward until the ownership situation is resolved, adding Sunderland is "almost floating aimlessly in the dark".

Last Saturday's 2-1 loss to Burton confirmed that Sunderland will be in League One next season.

Where were they when he took over?

Not that it makes a difference as they needed to go down otherwise they'd just be floating around the relegation spots in the Championship for a while.

Not ssurprised really. Can't remember the last success he had as a club manager.

When Louis Saha was keeping Fulham up, that's about it I think.

Like Moyes someone else will hire him thinking that he wasn't in any way to blame and that Sunderland are just shit.

Coleman being found at at club level again because he doesn’t have one world class player carrying him and his team. Fantastic.

Moyes has done okay at West Ham to be fair to him.

I think when you've burned through so many managers in a period of time that after the 3rd or 4th sacking you've got to be realistic and say well all of these managers can't all be that bad, it's probably us doing something wrong.

Not sure about that yet. 2 wins in his last 13 and at serious risk of going down.

I'm presuming the new consortium buying the club have said they don't want him at the club?

Given his lack of sucess at Coventry I think this was always his level.

Hodson kept them up. They were going down before he got there.

Nah Wales did well. Not sure how much if it was down to Coleman though

Think Coleman always had them pretty safe. All I remember of him back then was that he was a whopping great arsehole. Brian McBride was good though.

Was he? Seems OK to me why is it you say that?

I remember him always pissing and moaning and cryingin the press. Usually over his players being linked to other clubs.

Mick McCarthy rumoured to take over and he's said he has 'unfinished business' at the Stadium of Light.

Bit strange that I think. Didn't think he did a bad job at Ipswich and surely he could get a job in the championship
