I was sorry to hear Chris Coleman had been sacked by Sunderland

I, for one, was very sad to hear Chris Coleman had been given his marching orders by Sunderland AFC.

It is in no way this gentleman’s fault we are once again relegated.

I wrote a letter to Chris a few weeks ago expressing my concern for the club, and I could clearly see he was deeply concerned and determined to bounce back to what our fantastic fans deserve.

He was prepared to take a pay cut and graft his way back to the glory he could achieve.

Best wishes Chris, it wasn’t you to blame.

However, I’m sure Mick McCarthy, if he is to be the next manager, can quickly put us on a winning street of teamwork magic.

Mick is the very first sketch in my drawings of famous characters.

He is a tough task master, which is what we need.

So I sincerely hope Sunderland sign Mick McCarthy up before some other team get him.

My worst nightmare scenario would be Alan Pardew, who is never one of the lads with his teams.

We would end up worse than ever.
