Sunderland have suffered eight defeats already from the opening ten matches of the season and still without a win.

In those ten matches already played, Sunderland have shipped in 20 goals and only managed to score 7 goals. Diego Costa have scored more goals this season than Sunderland. They have been awful in every department on the pitch

Some may argue that the appointment of Big Sam as England manager truncated their plans for the season but hey, that seems to be their story in the past three seasons.

Sunderland owner Ellis Short is reportedly running out of patience and is keen to use the international break after this weekend’s games to replace the Scot.

From where I stand the clock is ticking for David Moyes exit. If Moyes fails to register a win against Bournemouth on Saturday 4pm match, it will be the beginning and the end of the bromace between sunderland and Moyes.
