Sunderland lost in League One on Saturday.

Stephen Elliott has taken to Twitter to give his take on the current situation at Sunderland.

The former Sunderland forward believes that the Black Cats are in a mess, and has suggested that there is no togetherness at the club.

Elliott made the comments following Sunderland’s 1-0 defeat to Wycombe Wanderers away from home in League One on Saturday afternoon.

It was Phil Parkinson’s first game in charge of the Black Cats after his appointment as the former Premier League club’s manager following the departure of Jack Ross.

The defeat means that Sunderland are 10th in the League One table at the moment with 19 points from 12 matches, as many as seven points behind second-placed Wycombe.

Elliott wrote on Twitter: “When E Short left club there were shouts of the p**s taking party being over. Bar honeymoon period, (new seats etc) it seems #safc has become a bit of a mess. It’s like there’s no togetherness at club anymore. Love to know what’s really going on behind scenes?”

Improvement needed

Sunderland do have a strong team, and it is imperative that the player step up and start performing to the best of their abilities.

It is still only October, and there is enough time for the Black Cats to climb up the table and move into the top two.
