Here's a selection of comments from Twitter:@peterjames73: Very disappointed in Coleman. A positive change when we went 1-0 up (Asoro for Fletcher) and this game would have been won. His pace would have caused major problems to the Norwich back three. Absolutely [email protected]: Coleman has worked here for months and we have seen no improvement on the set piece defending which realistically we concede the most by. Seriously doubting what’s he doing now. @tmalbrghtn: 25 shots, says it all. Coleman can get them to … [Read more...] about Maybe League One will be Chris Coleman’s level: Sunderland fans react on Twitter to manager situation

Video PUBLISHED: 17:37 07 April 2018 Carl Marston U's striker, Mikael Mandron, gets round Accrington centre-half Mark Hughes but can't get in a shot during the first half of this afternoon's League Two clash.Picture: STEVE WALLER © Copyright Stephen Waller Colchester United boss, John McGreal, insisted that his side “made a fist of it,” against the League Two leaders this afternoon. The U’s distant hopes of gate-crashing the League Two play-offs were all but ended by table-topping Accrington Stanley. But McGreal was satisfied with his side’s performance, although he rued their inability to make their dominance count during the opening minutes of the second period. “The first half was a very tight affair,” explained McGreal. “I thought we started the second half really well, and gained a lot of territory in those first 20 minutes. “I thought we made a fist of it, but we didn’t make the most of all our pressure and all … [Read more...] about Colchester United 0 Accrington Stanley 1: U’s ‘posed us a few problems’ admits John Coleman
7:22PM Full time: Everton 1 Manchester City 3 It was over at half time. City were simply too good in the first half, scoring three. Sam Allardyce's team stood off them and it looked like it might be a cricket score for a while. To be fair, Everton rallied after the break to score a goal, but City then just passed them to death for a few minutes and the result was never in doubt. We'll have a report and reaction soon. I myself am going off to blog Anthony Joshua's fight 7:19PM 90 + mins Everton finishing strongly, if pointlessly, but a decent move flounders upon Coleman's very moderate cross. 7:19PM 90 mins Three minutes will be added. Danilo will play them, he's on for Laporte. 7:15PM 86 mins Walcott crosses from the right, Niasse heads. Ederson's equald to it. I think he might be offside anyway. Some Everton fans think it's all over. 7:13PM 85 mins Walcott crosses from the right. Niasse with a diving header. Oh I think he's … [Read more...] about Everton 1 Manchester City 3: brilliance from Raheem Sterling. Jesus and Leroy Sane sinks Big Sam
0 Have your say Both privately and publicly, Chris Coleman has become the latest manager to reject the suggestion that John O’Shea and Lee Cattermole are part of the problem. Off the pitch at least.In this pair Coleman has found players willing to put themselves through the pain barrier, both mentally and physically, over and over again.Only George Honeyman has played more minutes this season.When you consider that Sam Allardyce identified the need to reduce O’Shea’s playing time in 2016, that is an absolutely damning indictment of Sunderland’s recruitment. O’Shea played right through the festive fixture list and has recently played through injections to manage the pain from an injury. Coleman spoke on the issue after the QPR defeat, getting quickly to the point.“He had to play,” he said, “he knows where we are and we needed him.”Therein lies the heart of the dilemma. Does Coleman, in the long-term, need to overhaul the … [Read more...] about Should Chris Coleman move on from experienced duo and does he have the options to do so?
