Yep. Could have put God in charge of that lot this season and the only difference would have been a couple of wins over Man United (well, everyone else hates them, I would suspect He does too  Wink ).

Should have been. City were woeful yesterday, and they only reason they held on for the win was because Sunderland are so dreadful.

Well it must be a very long straw. I think he should have gone about October/November!

It is too late now for any chance of Sunderland staying up, (a reason to support my view he should have left earlier) and I just hope we can get more than 17 points before the end of the season. Or we'll be in the 'record book'... for the wrong reason ..again.

Still, things will now have to change.

Yeah. Sunderland finished with 19 points at the end of that season, not 17 like I said above.

One or two months into the season having just won the Division One title? Blimey, you're a hard taskmaster!

What is the point in sacking him now? They're already down, what possible benefit could there be?

Look at our results during them first 3 Premiership months (Aug/Sep/Oct 2005):

Lost, Lost, Lost, Lost, Lost, Drew, Won, Drew, Lost, Lost, Lost

Now, in my opinion, surely this should start to show that something was wrong? 9 Loses, 2 Draws and 1 Win? From a team that got automatic promotion and at a time when Wigan are in the top half of the Premiership? If McCarthy had of left then, I think we would have had a better chance of staying in the Premiership. But that's just my opinion. There were other factor's aswell.

Sorry, I don't believe it.

Mick McCarthy had done a decent job at Sunderland, and they are neither the first, nor will they be the last team to come up to the Premier League and have a nightmare. Pointing at the way Wigan and West Ham have performed is neither here nor there.

Now, I don't doubt that he was worn down over the season, and he probably was going to go at some time or another. But this is now three times that Sunderland have sacked their manager whilst yo-yoing between divisions. Compare that with the clubs who have kept faith. Sunderland deserve what they get, as do all the others (including in the past, my team Manchester City) who have behaved that way.

Mick McCarthy has conducted himself with dignity, which is rather more than the club have.

I wouldn't put it past Bob Murray to bring him back. As for you lot slagging Sunderland, only I can do that  Silly That's why I'm leaving this god-for-saken town and moving on. Sunderland are a Division one team, always have and always will be. They will never be good enough for the Premiership.

The stadium was all lit up tonight, as I could see it from where I was. Mick has some bottle. He talked to the local TV crew filming him as he was leaving the stadium shortly after being sacked and was even chatting to them about his sacking. You gotta love him for that.

I never cared for him anyway, especially since he was Sir Bobby's replacement. Just as I never really cared for Kenny Dagliesh, since he replaced Kevin Keegan. I was happy that we had Ruud, but knew it wasn't going to be a pretty marriage.
