David Moyes resigns as Sunderland boss
Sunderland manager David Moyes has resigned following the club's relegation from the Premier League.

The end of the Black Cats' 10-year stay in the top flight was confirmed when they lost to Bournemouth last month.

Moyes, 54, informed chairman Ellis Short of his decision to step down at a meeting in London on Monday.

"I wish the players and my successor well in their efforts towards promotion back to the Premier League," said Moyes.

Former Everton and Manchester United boss Moyes took charge in July last year, after Sam Allardyce left to become England manager.

Sunderland finished bottom of the table this season with 24 points, having won only six games.

"I pursued the services of David Moyes for a considerable period prior to his appointment last summer, which makes the announcement of his departure difficult for everyone concerned," said owner Short.

He said that Moyes was not taking compensation for his departure, calling it a "testament to his character".

"In the days ahead we will take some time for reflection, and then focus on recruitment and pre-season as we prepare for our Championship campaign. We wish David well in the future," added Short.

Didn't he pick up £8m for getting sacked by Man U?
Suspect he would have paid to leave Sunderland so LITTLE was his motivation

Respect for Moyes refusing any compensation.

Re: David Moyes resigns as Sunderland boss
Think Boro will be a bit like Burnley who will take back down a lot of players they came up with and challenge again.
Will get rid of turds like Ramirez and probably only sell Gibsons nephew for a decent fee.
Wonder if they'd like to buy Snodgrass?

You could see Sunderland and Hull being more likely to drop down again.
Pickford will be the one in demand obviously and McGuire & Robertson from Hull. A lot of dross at Sunderland and they won't get a fee when Defoe goes to Bournemouth

Re: David Moyes resigns as Sunderland boss
Boro, Sunderland and Hull have gone down and the only one of that three that to me stands a chance of bouncing straight back is Boro. I say that because I think Their owner , Gibson, will be more prepared to fund an immediate return.

Up for the Jock national team job as the expectation is Strachan will walk when we smash them in a few weeks.

Re: David Moyes resigns as Sunderland boss
If he wasn't given the support he thought he was promised he should have had the balls of Steve Bruce at Hull and resigned.
Not sulked all season and phoned in a performance.
I'm guessing he spent more than teams like Burnley except it was all on rubbish
Will be treated with suspicion now and has bumped down the pecking order. Will do well to get a job of the level of Preston where he started.

Yank owner again. It was a question of when. Not if, Sunderland were going to drop. Moyes was the one who couldn't find a chair when the music stopped.

Re: David Moyes resigns as Sunderland boss
Vexed,

There was a very interesting article in the London Review of Books (yeah, alright) about ten years ago when some Mourinho biography was published saying that most managers have a level they consistently achieve and that it is a myth that they could exceed that. Moyes at Everton was given as an example. That seemed relevant when he was at Man Utd but he has done his best to disprove it since.

In many ways he reminds me of Steve McClaren. Completely hapless.

Pat Nevin sticking up for his Jock mate on 5Live & getting a kicking from Sunderland fans & Chris Sutton.
Very amusing

Seems to have gained the inverse midas touch since leaving Everton. One of the few people on the planet that wouldn't do a better job than our swan gobbling chump of a manager.

Re: David Moyes resigns as Sunderland boss
To be fair there aren't many people around who would do what Benitez did, but he's set the bar unfortunately for all relegated managers at the moment and in comparison Moyes looks like an arrogant, bottle job cunt.

Can't see many Sunderland fans being sad about this though from what I've heard.

More likely he realised how badly he's fucked up and is hoping to salvage some semblance of a reputation. Very much in the Allardyce mould of being seen as a competent manager by the media despite never having won anything.

I wouldn't be sad to see him never get a job again, but there's always some mug around the corner.

Re: David Moyes resigns as Sunderland boss
Would love someone from the media doorstop Sir Fergie and ask him how he reckons his recommended successor has got on since he got the nod at Man U.
Reckon he reached his level at Everton and seems to have sulked his way through his work since he got binned by Man U.
Can understand Sunderland fans wanting him out as he was negative & disinterested since day 1. Don't reckon he had the stomach for a fight next season.
