Sunderland: Fans criticise Stewart Donald for failing to fulfil investment promise

Sunderland: Fans criticise Stewart Donald for failing to fulfil investment promise - Sunderland

Sunderland were embroiled in a bit of turmoil when January began, as fan groups called on Stewart Donald to sell the club and sack manager Phil Parkinson.

The Black Cats’ boss has turned things around by guiding the team to seventh-place, and Donald did his best to keep fans on side by promising to sell if an appropriate offer came. He also stated that there would be further investment in the playing personnel in the January transfer window and, though there have been four arrivals, it is questionable if the owner has put his money where his mouth is.

Of the new arrivals, only Josh Scowen arrived for a fee, but given his QPR contract was due to expire in the summer, it is unlikely that he cost a great deal. As a result, fans have been critical of Donald over what they perceive to be a broken promise, leading one supporter to accuse him of being a liar.

Has Phil Parkinson done enough to convince you Sunderland are going up?

With the Black Cats’ promotion campaign so far falling below expectations, it would not have been unreasonable for fans to have expected greater spending last month, and they are understandably frustrated that Donald has taken the cost-effective route once again by mostly restricting signings to free agents and loan players, as he did in the summer.

Here is some of the discussion taking place amongst the fanbase.
