Niall Quinn has come out and expressed his wish for the Sunderland board not to go for the ‘same old same old’ approach.

The Black Cats legend’s comments have pleased the Sunderland fans here in the Transfer Tavern, as they look forward to their side finally climbing the Premier League table.

The former Sunderland player and chairman was speaking on Sun FM and believes that the club need to think outside the box when appointing a new manager to replace Dick Advocaat who left the club on Sunday.

Sam Allardyce and Nigel Preason have been linked with the job recently as has former USA national team coach Bob Bradley. Quinn said:

“Big Sam might be radical in as much that he’ll totally change the way things are going there. I think the same old, same old isn’t going to work and I think you need a manager to really change and revolutionise everything there.”

Sunderland have got off to a dreadful start to the season and languish in nineteenth place in the Premier League and yet to record a win. The only solace to the situation is that local rivals Newcastle United are a place behind them propping up the table in last place.

Sunderland fans, how much needs to change for you to avoid the drop? Let us know in the comments below!
