Sunderland: Fans discuss the effectiveness of Charlie Wyke

Sunderland: Fans discuss the effectiveness of Charlie Wyke - Sunderland

Sunderland have hit their best form of the season in recent weeks, with Phil Parkinson managing to turn things around since a loss to Gillingham a couple of weeks before Christmas.

Since then, the Black Cats have lost just once in 11 games and it is worth noting that the return of Charlie Wyke coincided with the upturn in results. The striker featured against the Gills to make his comeback from injury but made his first start against Blackpool, which started the successful run.

Wyke has started every game since, contributing three goals, but it is his general hold-up play and ability to bring Chris Maguire and Lynden Gooch into play that is really helping Sunderland. That pair have made eight and four goal contributions in the last nine games respectively but, despite Wyke’s influence, some fans remain doubtful about his ability.

Would Sunderland have gone up under Jack Ross?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The key criticism is his lack of goals, with just four in 21 league matches this term, and until he improves that record, he is unlikely to convince all Black Cats fans that he is good enough to lead the line in a promotion side. One supporter even went as far as to say he makes Jozy Altidore look like Sergio Aguero, with the USA international scoring just three goals during his time at the Stadium of Light.

Here is some of the discussion taking place about the current Sunderland striker.
