Although the Black Cats were largely expected to endure a difficult run among the English top-flight this season, Sam Allardyce’s current Sunderland outfit are seemingly edging ever closer to the drop with every passing week.   Ill-timed injury complaints and a general lack of good fortune out on the pitch has certainly affected the team’s chances of staying up in 2015/16 – but as the Stadium of Light faithful have…
