Sunderland need something to go their way sooner rather than later or they face another season stuck in the third tier of English football past this campaign.
It’s not been a good season as we get towards the halfway stage for the men from Wearside.
Things started steady under Jack Ross but results were not good enough for those in charge of the club and they duly looked to change things up with Phil Parkinson going in.
Parkinson, though, has not had good displays produced under him and he is under considerable pressure as we get towards Christmas.
Perhaps one positive to come from this season, though, is the continued emergence of Benji Kimpioka who has shown he could well be one to pin some hopes on for fans.
However, with him taking in an interview with the club’s official channels some fans have taken to Twitter to suggest he might be better off leaving for his own good.
Let’s see what has been said:
❤️ Keep giving everything for the team Benji- love seeing you get your chance!

Get out of this sinking ship Benji even if it's a sideways move to another league one club.

I heard Steve Bruce is interested in him in January.

He should run like the wind out of the club. Before we ruin him

Could you blame him if he doesn’t with the way we are being ran

Only good thing to come out of this god awful season would be tying him down to a long term contract and building a team round him
