A whole host of Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to blast Lee Johnson’s comments following their latest defeat.
Sunderland fans will have been hoping that their team could bounce back from an embarrassing 5-1 defeat away to Rotherham United on Saturday, but it could not have been further from that as Sheffield Wednesday swept them aside, beating the Black Cats 3-0.
Is Lee Johnson the man to get Sunderland back to the Championship?
Despite shipping their eighth goal in just a few days, Johnson was upbeat during his post-match interview with the club’s media team, claiming that Sunderland were the better team between both boxes, although that means very little when you get beaten so comprehensively.
A lot of Sunderland fans are furious on Twitter with Johnson’s comments.
What have these Sunderland fans been saying?
“He is delusional – after Saturdays and tonight’s performances we won’t be beating stags on Saturday”
“Yeah… He’s truly lost it. “Better”. You what?”
“Ratio’d for being an embarrassment.”
“cannot bring myself to watch him. Sunderland fans literally fighting among themselves last night. What a shambles. Thanks SAFC”
The mood on Wearside has certainly taken a turn for the worse in recent days as Sunderland have gone from booking a spot in the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup to now being on a three-game losing run in League One and six points off top spot, with just a single game in hand.
