Ross has become the Sunderland manager and the English League One club's fans should bear in mind that Ross, when interviewed by TheTwoPointOne stated; "if you move clubs or have a big turnover of playing squad you don't necessarily try to implement the same system with players if it doesn't suit". PureFitbaw have picked out some players that we can see making the move from the SPFL to the Black Cats.
