Last night Sunderland sacked manager Simon Grayson following the three all draw with Bolton Wanderers.

A brief statement on Official Site from chief executive Martin Bain read.

‘Simon and his team have worked tirelessly to achieve the best for the football club during their time here. While we hoped that Simon`s experience in the Football League would help us to a successful season, results have not been good enough for a club of this stature. In order for us to improve upon our current position we believe a fundamental change is necessary.’

Plenty of fans won’t exactly be upset with the decision given a return of ten points from 15 games leaving us sitting in 22nd place and only one win to our name, but the club were circling the drain for a while before relegation and has Grayson really had long enough to turn that attitude and mentality around given the limited budget?

A return for Big Sam maybe? Who else is out there?

Kevin Phillips was being suggested late last night in the media.
