Sunderland: Fans react to journalist’s apology to Phil Parkinson

Sunderland: Fans react to journalist’s apology to Phil Parkinson - Sunderland

It is fair to say that general Sunderland fan opinion of Phil Parkinson has changed dramatically in the past few weeks, though there are still some who refuse to praise the Black Cats boss until he delivers promotion.

With that being his task when he arrived, it is a fair approach to take, but there is no doubting that Sunderland are now excelling under his management. The transformation he has made to the defence has been nothing short of miraculous, with just two goals conceded in eight games, and it is thanks to his bravery and willingness to change that things have improved.

When he first arrived, Parkinson experimented with different systems, formations and personnel, and before he found his winning formula, the north-east outfit went on a run of just two wins in 14 games under his watch. That led to significant criticism from a variety of people, including the Chronicle’s James Hunter, who has now issued an apology to Parkinson for doubting his credentials.

Some supporters think that move was unnecessary as the Black Cats’boss was indeed underperforming and was rightly receiving some backlash, and the fact that he still hasn’t tangibly achieved anything means he could warrant criticism come the end of the season.

Here is some of the reaction to Hunter’s apology.

Do you think Parkinson was unfairly treated by supporters and deserves an apology Sunderland fans? Or would you rather assess the job he has done at the end of the season? Tell us below!
