Sunderland are finding it tough at the moment to find any kind of form or momentum in Sky Bet League One as we approach the Christmas period in the third tier.
Sitting in 12th in the table right now, the Black Cats are struggling and Phil Parkinson certainly has the fans on his back with the gap to the play-offs getting ever wider.
With them drawing at the weekend against Blackpool, the long wait for a win in any competition has continued but striker Charlie Wyke has sought to try and take the positives from the result at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.
As quoted by the club’s official Twitter site, he said:
With Sunderland fans baying for blood at the moment, though, the reaction to this perhaps hasn’t been too kind.
Let’s take a look at the best of what the Black Cats have said in response to the forward’s comments:

Nobody ever doubted the quality of Chris Maguire's service. Just the quality of Charlie Wyke and Will Grigg. Both have been woeful for us since signing.

Nobody doubted the quality of Maguire's service just the quality of Grigg? Odd comment, Grigg has scored goals for fun in this league before. Ultimately we don't create enough chances for anyone to score.

I wouldn’t bother opening my mouth to come out with that quote.
