Sunderland manager Alex Neil celebrates a League One victory

Sunderland fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Much needed…

With Ross Stewart being the only striker left at the club, it is imperative that Sunderland bring in a number of attacking players to provide Neil with quality and depth in the final third.

The chaotic schedule and all-round physicality of the Championship will need to be considered by the Black Cats, and it will inevitably require regular rotation and alternative options due to the likelihood of injuries occurring.

Would Parrott have been a good signing for Sunderland?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Therefore, the manager’s news will come as a huge relief to Sunderland fans, making them more confident for Sunday’s game against Coventry.
