Sunderland: Many fans haven’t take much from Phil Parkinson’s comments

Phil Parkinson cut a very frustrated figure when he spoke to Sunderland’s official channels following the loss on penalties against Oxford United.

The main points he made during the interview was that he couldn’t believe his side hadn’t been awarded at least one penalty, while he also felt that the Black Cats had so many chances that the lack of help from the officials should have been irrelevant:

It was a brutally honest assessment from the manager, but it seems that many Sunderland fans have taken very little from the comments, whether that be any form of solace or guidance for the future.

The general consensus among many fans is that the performance just wasn’t good enough, and hasn’t been under Parkinson, aside from the 5-0 win over Tranmere Rovers.

Having grown impatient with Jack Ross over time, it seems as though Parkinson could end up in the same bad books as the man he succeeded if he doesn’t begin to turn results around soon.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the comments, including posts from unconvinced Sunderland fans, can be seen below:
