The Managers PETER REID

Post  cyprussyd on 2017-11-22, 5:17 pm

Peter Reid: 29 March 1995 - 7 October 2002



Peter Reid successfully steered Sunderland away from relegation upon his arrival in 1995, amassing three wins and three draws from the final seven games of the season.

The following season, Reid re-signed Paul Bracewell as assistant-manager and player, which proved to be a masterstroke. The team went on to record nine straight wins in the New Year and secured the Division One title. 

In the 1996-97 season, Reid signed Niall Quinn for a record £1.3m, but the Irishman suffered an injury early in the season and it was last-day heartbreak again for Sunderland, as defeat at Wimbledon sent the Wearsiders straight back down despite a healthy 40 points amassed across the season. 

Reid’s side missed out on an immediate return to the Premier League in the play-off final the following year, with Kevin Phillips helping Sunderland to a 17-match unbeaten run in the latter stages of the season.

But the Lads bounced straight back from their play-off defeat in the 1998-99 season by winning Division One at a canter. With Phillips and Quinn up front, Thomas Sorensen employed between the sticks and Paul Butler as the rock at the back, Sunderland romped their way to a club record 19 league games unbeaten.

Promotion was secured with four games to spare.

The club’s return to the Premier League was emphatic with Reid’s side sitting proudly in second place during January 2001, but only 14 wins followed from the next 62 League games with new signings Tore Andre Flo and Marcus Stewart failing to make an impact.

Five weeks later Reid was sacked, but he left behind a lasting legacy of attractive football.

Bob Stokoe

Post  cyprussyd on 2017-11-22, 5:19 pm

Bob Stokoe: 29 November 1972 – 18 October 1976
The revival that Bob Stokoe sparked on Wearside was quite astonishing and unprecedented in the club’s history.
After making a handful of shrewd signings, Stokoe turned an under-performing Second Division team into a side capable of beating three of the top sides in England.
That of course, was on the way to Sunderland lifting a memorable and historic FA Cup in 1973 which is still talked of today.
In doing so Stokoe became one of the few managers to play for and manage an FA Cup winning team and earn the nickname ‘The Messiah’ on Wearside.
The achievement was astonishing and as a reward Stokoe was handed freedom of the Borough of Sunderland, along with the whole of the Sunderland team in January 1974.
Stokoe spent four memorable years at Roker Park and while the FA Cup came as the biggest coup in the club’s long history, the Gateshead-born manager led the club to promotion in the 1975-76 campaign.
Despite being dealt a blow following the loss of Dennis Tueart and Dave Watson, Stokoe worked his magic and recruited Bob Moncur, Bryan Robson, Tony Towers and Jeff Clarke.
Those additions helped the club clinch the Second Division title for the first time in the club’s history and ensured a return to the First Division.
However, life in the top-flight didn’t begin well and following a nine -game winless start Stokoe stepped down as manager of Sunderland in 1976.
That wasn’t the last Black Cats saw of Stokoe as 11 years later he returned to the club for a second spell, this time as caretaker manager.
Chairman Bob Murray turned to the former hero for inspiration to help steer the club to safety in the Second Division in their final seven games of the season.
Unfortunately, Stokoe was unable to work his magic and following a two-leg play-off defeat against GIllingham, the Lads were relegated to the Third Division for the third time in the club’s history.
