John SmithSutekh Almost, but not quite! They’ve actually only lost 2 that matter with Parky in charge. 1 at high flying Wycombe in his very first game and the other at a useful Shrewsbury a week later following a 5-0 win over Tranmere. The other defeats were actually a draw in the league cup (lost in penalties) and two likely “reserve” or experimental games in the “Simod cup” equivalent.
The next few will probably decide it for Sunderland fans with a trip to the Gills in the FA Cup and visits from Coventry and Burton in the league then another trip to the Gills followed by Blackpool and Bolton at home.
Utter drivel: "only lost 2 that matter" - every game matters, if you are happy to lose a game then you aren't a supporter. "a useful Shrewsbury" - they're mid-table! I think it's high time you took off the rose-tinted Parky specs before you make yourself look even more silly.
Are you talking about the same Shrewsbury with one defeat in eight? Against Wycombe away who subsequently went top after that game? That Shrewsbury, right?
For the record, there aren't many people that care about the EFL trophy and you can tell if you actually looked at the attendances
