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.’
‘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.’
