Though you didn’t have to remind the Sunderland fans in the Transfer Tavern, a rather surprising stat has emerged in regards to the Black Cats.
Following a dismal start to life under David Moyes, the Wearside outfit are early contenders for relegation from the top tier during the opening stages of the campaign.
As poor as it has been for those at the Stadium of Light, this is familiar territory.
Perennial strugglers, the Sun have revealed the North East outfit have failed to win a Premier League game in either August or September over the past FOUR years.
Battling relegation, changing manager and staying up after a late surge is pretty much a staple of life in Sunderland these days.
That’s a stunning 24 games without a win, since Steven Fletcher struck to beat Wigan Athletic way back on September 29th 2012.
Whether or not Moyes will be the latest man to fall into the trap of being axed before the end of the season remains to be seen, but it is certainly a worrying trend.
Will Moyes last the season and Sunderland stay up?
