Ex-Sunderland star slams Tony Mowbray decision and makes Championship prediction

Don Goodman, a Sky Sports commentator, reacts to Tony Mowbray’s sacking and makes a prediction for Saturday’s match against West Brom. Sunderland’s decision to sack Tony Mowbray was inexplicable, according to Sky Sports analyst Don Goodman, as the Black Cats prepare for Saturday’s Championship match against West Brom.

Sunderland fired Mowbray on Monday, with an interim coaching staff lead by Mike Dodds poised to take command of the West Brom game for the time being.

Goodman expressed disbelief at the dismissal of Tony Mowbray, stating to BoyleSports, the latest EFL Betting provider, “I’m astonished by how foolish it is to sack Tony Mowbray. Sunderland should tread carefully in what they desire, considering the wealth of talent he has nurtured.”

Goodman highlighted Mowbray’s remarkable achievements, emphasizing, “He performed exceptionally well. It’s incomprehensible that the club believes he wasn’t excelling. Just look at the progress he facilitated with Jack Clarke and Patrick Roberts. His coaching elevated every young player.”

Last season, Mowbray steered Sunderland to a sixth-place finish, but they were eliminated by Luton over two legs. Presently, the Black Cats occupy ninth place in the Championship table, trailing the top six by three points following a 1-1 draw against Millwall last weekend.

Comparatively, West Brom holds fifth place, positioned five points above Sunderland, despite conceding a last-minute goal against Leicester in their recent match.

When asked to predict the match at the Stadium of Light this weekend, Goodman remarked, “This will be a tough game.” Sunderland don’t usually play draws, but I believe this will be one. I’m going to go with 2-2.”

Sunderland’s next home game, three days after facing West Brom, is against Leeds on Tuesday, December 12.
