Paolo Di Canio’s seat as getting quite warm at the moment over at the Stadium of Light as his Sunderland side lost yet again on Saturday, this time suffering an emphatic 3-0 away loss to previously winless West Bromwich Albion. The match was all Baggies right from the off with the home side going in front on 20 minutes through Stephane Sessegnon, who undoubtedly took pleasure in scoring on his debut for WBA against his former club and boss who sold him for near around 6 million pounds only a couple weeks ago. The Black cats failed to respond to Sessegnon’s opener and didn’t manage to trouble Baggie keeper Boaz Myhill at all in the match, recording a grand total of 0 shots on goal, a total that won’t win you any games no matter what the level of football is. West Brom finally put the game to bed with a couple of late goals from Liam Ridgewell on 76 and a Morgan Amalfitano effort deep into stoppage time as the Baggies picked up their first win of the new campaign. In the other dugout, Di Canio struggled to find answers as Sunderland showed both a lack of pace and ingenuity on the day with the torrid event culminating in Di Canio going over to the traveling Sunderland fans after the match and engaging in a bit of heated banter with them. The way things are going right now, Di Canio would be lucky to last until the holidays.
