THE MANAGERS: Eric Black

Eric Black: 30 November 2011 - 3 December 2011

Eric Black took charge of Sunderland for a solitary game after the dismissal of Steve Bruce in 2011.

A former striker in his own right, Black oversaw the Lads' 2-1 defeat to Wolves at Molineux despite Kieran Richardson's rocket opening the scoring before Seb Larsson missed a penalty.

Bruce’s permanent replacement had already been arranged, with Martin O'Neill watching from the stands with keen interest.
