To say Sunderland fans have had enough of Phil Parkinson could be considered a huge understatement if their Twitter feed is anything to go by.
‘It’s hugely disappointing not to get something from the game.’
— Sunderland AFC (@SunderlandAFC) December 7, 2019
For many of them, it appears their 1-0 defeat to Gillingham on Saturday was the final straw as a huge number of them took to the social media network to vent their frustration at the club and demanded that their current manager be handed his P45.
Indeed, since sacking Jack Ross, the former Bolton Wanderers manager has failed to have the desired impact whilst at the Stadium of Light.
Parkinson has an unwanted record of eight defeats in his 12 matches in charge of Sunderland so far (TransferMarkt), with just two wins to his name – which has left the Black Cats further away from the play-off spots than ever before.
Whilst many of the supporters took aim at the board for another poor performance, a lot of them all agreed that the 52-year-old is not the man to lead the charge and help them finally make a return to the Championship and want to see him gone as soon as possible.
Here are just some of their reactions…
GET HIM OUT NOW

It’s massively disappointing we have a football manager as bad as you mate

Phil you have to go, a point at Gillingham is the level at which you would be satisfied at. I am sorry but that is way below the standards that SAFC have. Please do the honourable decent thing and leave.

Not only is our manager totally inadequate he also pretends he can’t hear , hopefully he can hear those words “your sacked”

SD said at the start of the season that this squad will be aiming for 100pts. They sack Ross as they didn’t think he would get us promoted, and hire this clown who looks like he’ll get us relegated. What possible reason do they have for keeping him. The club is a shambles.

Do the decent thing Phil, and please resign.

This bloke is absolutely clueless. How many saves did their keeper make phil? You’ve gone to gillingham for a draw with boring, negative tactics. Just go
