Sunderland are looking for a new manager to take over from Simon Grayson.
Sunderland fans are seriously worried, after seeing John O’Shea become the bookies’ favourite to take over at the Stadium of Light.
O’Shea’s odds were slashed last night, and he became an odds-on shout to become Sunderland’s next manager, after a series of bets.
The centre-back has absolutely no managerial experience, but has been at Sunderland since 2011, so knows the club well.
However, Sunderland fans appear to be unanimous in thinking that placing O’Shea in charge would be a terrible idea.
Like we all didn’t see O’Shea coming a mile away. It’s like we’re trying to make the @Fulwell73 documentary as interesting as possible.— Liam Kennedy (@KennaSAFC) November 2, 2017

Sunderland parted company with Simon Grayson in midweek, after a 3-3 draw with Bolton Wanderers.
If O’Shea was to take charge at the Stadium of Light he would certainly be thrown into managerial life at the deep end.
Sunderland have failed to win a home match in 2017, and currently sit in 22nd place in the Championship table.
At the moment Sunderland have placed Billy McKinlay and Robbie Stockdale in joint caretaker charge, as they assess their options to be their next permanent boss.
