‘Ross out,’ ‘I pray you’ve learned’ – These Sunderland fans are not happy after manager’s latest comments

Jack Ross failed in his attempts to take Sunderland out of League One, losing 2-1 in dramatic fashion at Wembley yesterday.

Nbay Sarr’s unusual own goal gave the Black Cats the lead, but a Ben Purrington strike followed by a late Patrick Bauer poke switched the score around and sent Lee Bowyer’s side into the Championship.

They put the worry about ownership and the neglect behind the scenes to one side to register a remarkable rise from upper mid-table side to Wembley winners.

The pressure is now on Ross who failed to get his side promoted despite bringing in £5m of strikers as well as a host of other ‘big name’ players. Max Power and Lewis Morgan are also better than the third tier, or at least should be.

Despite having the squad, Ross hasn’t found the method and that’s led to one or two questioning his judgement this morning, as well as the odd shout for his head.

Ross said after the game; “The only thing we can do now is use this sense of devastation and disappointment to make us stronger. It won’t feel like that now but it’s what we need to do. It’s gut wrenching but we must use it as motivation to keep driving us forward and we will look to do that.”

That’s not gone down well with supporters, as you’ll read below.
