Sunderland were one of a handful of League One sides to have no game at the weekend but it won’t be long until they are back in action.
The Black Cats are going through a bit of a tough period, it is fair to say, and fans of the club will be concerned that they are facing a real spell in League One if they do not get out of it this year.
Certainly, they have the ability to get out but things are not clicking at the moment, and Phil Parkinson’s job is to try and address that sooner rather than later.
Away from that, though, the Sunderland Echo has caught up with Josh Maja – a man who left the club when they were in the Championship – and he has said he wouldn’t have left them had he been offered more money.
That’s caused quite a stir on Twitter, so let’s take a look at the best of what has been said:
Cut a long story short … he wanted more money to stay .

I wanted to stay… if they paid me more. Pretty much the story of most transfers isn’t it? Well done for getting the interview but not much of interest here yet.

Was never gonna stay. His agent wanted a big pay day.

So it was about money, hardly a regular in the team
