Sunderland fans discuss Jack Ross future after play-off final defeat

Sunderland lost the play-off final to Charlton Athletic today.

Sunderland will be playing in League One again next season following a 2-1 defeat to Charlton Athletic at Wembley. A shocking own goal gave the Black Cats the lead but from there on Charlton were the better team. Ben Purrington equalised before half-time and Patrick Bauer’s last-minute finish sent the Addicks back to the Championship.

After the game, there was clearly some soul searching to do for Sunderland fans. Especially, it seems, when it comes to the manager.

Sunderland’s inability to win automatic promotion had already left fans disheartened with the performance of Jack Ross. Many felt with the talent on board Sunderland should have been heading to the second-tier as one of the top two.

But a lack of killer instinct saw them draw more games than any other team in the league and finish fifth in the table.

For many Sunderland fans the performances have not been good enough and Ross’ negative style has left them wanting to see him gone this summer.

However, that is not a universal view. Some Sunderland fans have been impressed by the way Ross has helped get the team back on their feet after two woeful relegation seasons.

It certainly seems as though Ross’ future might be on the agenda at Sunderland this summer after failure to win promotion. Here is how some of the fans have reacted.
