Sunderland travelled to the LNER Community Stadium to face York City in a pre-season friendly which ended in a 1-1 draw, their second stalemate in three games.
Will Sunderland earn promotion next season?
A lot of fans have reacted angrily to a clip on Twitter of York’s equaliser.
What have these Sunderland fans had to say?
“They’ve all switched off . Schoolboy defending , I agree Burge is hopeless”
“Knocked me sick watching this, don’t think I can watch Burge and Flanagan this season”
“The marking, Lee burge & Tom Flanagan mid-table if we’re lucky”
“Surely we have to sign a keeper if Lee saw this…surely.”
“Always a catastrophe waiting to happen, not expecting him to be perfect every game but he has too many mistakes in him for a team that is looking to get promoted. Patterson in, simple as, can’t do any worse surely.”
“Burge and Flanagan are just appalling”
With Lee Johnson having the chance to experience a full pre-season and summer transfer window, fans will surely be expecting him to get the Black Cats up challenging for promotion once again.
Last season appeared to be a great one for Sunderland when they were on a 12-game unbeaten run in the league, before seeing their form fall off a cliff and win just one of their last nine regular League One fixtures and falling short in their bid to reach the Championship.
