The 2016-17 campaign was a dreadful one for Sunderland AFC – and we want to hear your views.
Click here to take part in our Big Sunderland AFC Survey:
Sunderland were relegated to the Championship for the first time in a decade after finishing with just 24 points – a whopping 16 from safety.
David Moyes resigned within 24-hours of the end of the season and the hunt for a new manager to lead the Championship promotion charge continues.
Now the dust has settled on the season just gone, we want your views for our annual Big Sunderland AFC Survey which launches today.
Who struggled? Who sparkled? What were your highlights and lowlights?
Our survey will be running for a week with the Sunderland Echo publishing all of the answers in full.
Sam Allardyce kept Sunderland up last season only to then leave for England following Roy Hodgson’s departure, with Moyes handed the Sunderland job.
Injuries, poor signings, financial restrictions and a record breaking poor start to the Premier League season helped contribute to the club’s relegation.
Moyes resigned in the wake of relegation to the second tier but do you think Sunderland would have stayed up had he left sooner? What led to his downfall?
Is he to blame? Or should Ellis Short and the board or the players shoulder the responsibility?
We want to hear from you on a wide range of issues including, crucially, what needs to be done going forward for Sunderland? How much needs to be spent in order to make sure
Sunderland are competitive next season as they look to bounce back from the drop?
We want to hear your views on all these questions and much more.
