Mannone said he thinks that he and his teammates should refund the club's traveling fans that endured the 8-0 drubbing by Southampton, reports Sky Sports.

The Sunderland supporters continued to support the side until the final whistle, and Mannone says he wants to help the costs of the fans that made the 700-mile journey. He said he and the team virtually gave up on the afternoon, and the fans didn't deserve that performance.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Mannone had the worst game of his career, conceding eight goals in the 8-0 loss to Southampton on Saturday.

Yes, that wasn't a misprint, eight goals, including two own-goals in a disaster game for Sunderland. This was just a complete let-down for the Black Cats and they'll look to just forget this pathetic performance. Unfortunately, they host a potent Arsenal offense next week in what will be equally as tough of a match-up, if not harder.

Mannone conceded one goal and made four saves in a 3-1 win over Stoke City on Saturday.

Mannone and the defense have seemingly turned it around recently, only allowing one goal in the past three matches. Mannone showed last year that he can go on a binge of clean sheets and this may be the time to use him as Sunderland are in their best form of the young season. Mannone and Sunderland travel to Southampton after the international break.

Mannone got another clean sheet this weekend in the 0-0 draw to Swansea City Saturday.

Mannone recorded double digit clean sheets last year and it seems as though the defense has found its groove going back to back games with clean sheets. He was asked to do very little only seeing one shot on goal, so he's worth getting in your lineup at a cheap value. Sunderland have a favorable schedule coming playing Stoke, Southampton, and Crystal Palace in three of their next four.

Mannone got his first clean sheet of the season Saturday, recording six saves in the 0-0 draw with Burnley.

The 0-0 draw seemed almost inevitable as these two offensively-challenged teams squared off in a scoreless grinder Saturday. Mannone might be a solid option to stick in as your goalkeeper at a cheap value as Sunderland host Swansea and Stoke in the coming weeks.

Mannone gave up two goals and made four saves in the 2-2 draw to Tottenham Saturday.

It's been a tough start to the season for Mannone and it was another tough day at the office for him today as Spurs were bombarding Sunderland all afternoon. Spurs got off 15 shots and seemingly had the ball the whole game with a possession mark of over 60%. Look for Mannone to possibly get his first clean sheet next weekend against a very poor offense in Burnley.

Mannone barely missed a clean sheet yet again in the 1-0 loss to QPR Saturday.

Mannone has looked solid, but has just been missing clean sheets allowing only four goals in his first three games. The defense looks solid and but its always one let down that comes back to bite them. They allowed a late goal into extra time in the first half and seemed a bit put off at that point. They'll look to bounce back in two weeks when they host Tottenham.

Mannone allowed one goal and recorded two saves in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday.

A successful performance from Sunderland, as their defense looked fairly efficient for most of the game. Mannone had a great stretch last season of good results and they have a solid chance of getting a clean sheet next weekend against a struggling QPR side that lost 4-0 to Tottenham on Sunday.
