Sunderland fans and their team are proving to be the gift that keeps on giving.

After the way they went on a year ago, claiming how easy the Championship is but Rafa Benitez would fail, impossible to have any sympathy for their plight.

Rafa performed a minor miracle at Newcastle United to turn around a desperate situation so quickly, whilst Simon Grayson is simply desperate…

The Sunderland fans appear to now to have come to the conclusion that it is a case of just blaming everybody for their plight.

However, just like any club they do have a minority of supporters who refuse to see what is in front of them.

Their latest humiliation saw Ipswich, led by former Mackem manager Mick McCarthy, smash five past them in a 5-2 defeat on Tuesday night, leaving Sunderland deep in relegation trouble with only one win in 10 so far.

Enjoy the comments below…

Comments from Sunderland fans via their Ready To Go (down to League One) message board:

‘Well here goes. People who know me well will realise I never hide win lose or draw.

Watched the full match tonight and have to say that there was actually a big improvement in our play, defence apart.

We had 14 shots at goal and 6 of them were on target.

The defence is catastrophic .

I still believe we will be ok, I have told many that it will get worse before it gets better.

We now know we can attack which is massive. I believe we are finally at the bottom of the curve and we will start getting positive results

Watch this space.’

And they’ve got poor Charles Bronson locked up inside, whilst loons like you are still on the loose!’

‘It’s Comical Ali!’

‘It’s not good when the other team scores five, is a general consensus in football.’

‘There is nothing positive about us, we can keep lying to ourselves though if it makes us feel better but I’d prefer the truth and reality.’

‘The drugs don’t work.’

‘Put the glue bag down and start again.’

‘Big improvement.

Conceded 5.’

‘We played 5 defenders and 2 defensive mids and still conceded 5.

So saying that we were okay bar the defence is like saying the 11 players were okay bar 8 of them (when you include the keeper).’

‘Grayson’s attempt at defensive improvement was to put another defender on the pitch.’

‘Every week you look at the team sheet it’s a complete guess at what formation were playing.’

‘Mass walkout on 20 minutes.

Something like this has to happen, next home game.

Going through the motions, sitting there watching that dross, something has to change.’

‘I will do it after 5 mins at Preston if this helps anything?’

‘Something has changed, 40k average down to “25k” last game.’

‘Mass pitch invasion.

Get banned will do you a favour.’

‘I reckon a pitch invasion on 4 mins. Blackpool did one and they got the game called off and awarded a point. Everyone’s a winner.’

‘My major fear will be on Saturday when nearly 3k will be at Preston (compared to the last few away gates we have been involved in) if it goes badly, there is bound to be trouble( amongst our supporters) as there’s an inevitability about it all and we’ve seen it all before.’

‘Amen to that. Hate to see our support turn against each other.’

‘I’m just going to not bother going for the next few. Refuse to put myself through it.’

‘No idea how a mass walkout would work. Surely you would need a decent amount in the ground to start.’

    That first guy reminds me of the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, “Tis but a scratch”!!!

      Monty pythons “Always look on the bright side of life “springs to mind too.

    • Leazes Ender

      He reminds me of a few United bloggers.

      • Buck Blacket

        You deserve to be a mackem, all that negativity suits you down to the ground, you’d be like a pig in s**t!

  • Christopher Edwards

    Only interested in Newcastle news. I have as much interest in the small club down the road as any other club in the football league.

    • HappyToons

      Hence you read the above and posted 8-)

    I was reading the RTG board last night when I couldn’t sleep. First class entertainment at the moment.

    No idea how a mass walkout would walk or is that wark (rhyming with park), depending if your accent has crossed the border that is the dark zone; your teeth have been destroyed by fizzy pop…’Rafa Beneathus’…etc.;

    it does come back to haunt you.

    Nice to see Nolan and the other Magpies top of the tree, and who said last year that the Cardiff manager was a dinosaur???

      Warnock Rex,getting lower league teams fired up and promoted seems to be his speciality rather than the prem’ ?

    Although it’s funny, I do think the PL needs some of the game’s clubs back that we have more history and rivalry with back – the clubs we have a bit of edge with.

    Last season the best atmosphere was Leeds – nothing needs working out as to why. I just can’t get worked up about playing Brighton, Bournemouth, Watford like I would Leeds, Villa, and of course our near neighbours.

    Good luck to all clubs well run and in the PL, but my preference it to play clubs we are close to in terms of support levels and have a history of games with.

    Also, it’s nice to play the likes of Man City, but given they spend £150m each summer it’s a million miles away from being the even contest it was in the 70s, 80s and 90s.

    In summary, I just feel each week we either play a club we have no edge with, or a club we used to have edge with until they gained £50m players all over the pitch.

    • Geordiegiants

      That’s about right. Sheff Wed, Forrest, Villa, Leeds have all been replaced with clubs with no passionate fan base or real atmoshpere at their stadiums.

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    They need Pard’s to guide them to Glory

    • Geordiegiants

      Nah I’m happy enough with Simon Relegrayson.

  • Kneebotherm8

    Cheer up, Sunlun. You know what they say.
    Some things in life are bad,
    They can really make you mad.
    Other things just make you swear and curse.
    When you’re chewing on life’s gristle,
    Don’t grumble, give a whistle!
    And this’ll help things turn out for the best
    Always look on the bright side of life …. dum dum…..dum dum….dum dum….dum dum

    Burnley away Monday night on sky and we sell out our 2500 ticket’s 33 days before the game, that is loyalty we have a different mentality to them Rafa asked us to back him we

  • Sadman

    Lets hope they stick with Relegrayson until at least the end of the season SMB

  • Geordiegiants

    Ha ha ha ha I can’t help but laugh at them, they are a pathetic bunch of inferior people. WALK OUT!!!!! They need to walk in first.

  • Mike

    Fantastic wot comes around comes around. Enjoy it will be years till we play you lot again. enjoy the experience and oh where are the 20k Sunderland till i die fans???

    • Biggs Darklighter

      Hope we get them at home in the FA cup

  • Albert Stubbins

    I received an email from an SMB at work this morning with a picture of a bubble with a pin going through it. I had to laugh at the mentality of this sad deluded fool. I gently reminded him of how many goals his team conceded the evening before and he accepted I had a point. That’s basically how thick the average mackem is. They need to keep going down the tragic path they are currently on- its what they deserve- why? because they’re all the same- T w A t S!!

  • X,WHY,Y MAN.

    It’s never a good thing to laugh at the demise of other clubs and especially your nearest rival.
    These things have a habit of coming back to bite you so it is never a wise move imo.
    Concentrate on your own team is what I say because : “He Who Laughs Last, Laughs The Loudest.”

  • Sadman

    Come on X,WHY,Y MAN show some passion FFS they hate us we hate them. Get over yourself.

  • Steve

    To all the bar codes who are having a good laugh 😁 remember what goes around comes around stick to what you do best.. Punching horses lol

    • David Scott

      Yeah it does,which is why they’re where they are.Hope they get relegated which is looking likely.

      • Milo79

        Yeah, ninth after six games has relegation written all over it.

  • Milo79

    Hilarious but what more do you expect from a set of fans who refer to themselves as ‘MLFs’ or ‘massive lads fans’.

  • Philippines

    Difficult to see that they will not get relegated this season.

  • GToon

    My biggest worry is that this amusement is happening too soon and will give them time to turn things around. We needed this tremendous run of form to happen towards the end of the season when it’s too late. Funny tho all the same.
