Sunderland player ratings: Just how bad were the 'gutless' Black Cats against Swansea? Have your say here
Neil McLeman was at the Liberty Stadium for the start of the Gus Poyet era and he wasn't impressed. Do you agree with his brilliant player ratings?
Gus Poyet's tenure as Sunderland got a off to a disastrous start at the weekend when he saw his new side suffer a 4-0 thrashing at Swansea.
Our man Neil McLeman was at the Liberty Stadium and he didn't hold back on his assessment on the Sunderland performance, calling the squad "gutless losers" before pulling no punches with his individual player ratings, which you can see here.
Poyet himself even questioned the attitude of some of his players after the visitors conceded the first goal, as the Black Cats capitulated and suffered their seventh loss in eight games.
Sunderland sit rock bottom of the Premier League having picked up just a solitary point to leave their new boss with a real job on his hands.
Do you agree with Neil's no-nonsense player ratings below? Has he been to harsh on the north east strugglers? Or has he gone easy on them?
