It was their big day, a chance for Sunderland fans to show what a progressive forward looking place Wearside now is…
England were in town on Friday and had hired the Stadium of Light out for the night, so how would the locals respond?
With 15 minutes left to go, Andros Townsend took to the pitch.
There was instant booing from the Sunderland fans assembled, fair enough, a bit of pantomime style booing to greet their rivals’ player playing for ENGLAND.
However, every touch of the ball by the Newcastle winger was met with further booing, I bet it is all that most of them are talking about this morning…
It was not only the booing that has highlighted the class of the Sunderland supporters who turned up, just look at the plight of these two below, for example.
They really shouldn’t be walking the streets and I wonder if it was his mam who did the scribbling on the first one’s head?
