‘What’s going on?’ – Many Sunderland fans are left in the dark as crucial semi-final match approaches

Sunderland are heading into a play-off semi-final with Portsmouth this week, possibly the biggest game of their history.

The Black Cats have never spent consecutive seasons in the third-tier, having only ever played outside the top two divisions once. Failure to fight back at the first time of asking this season will mark this as their worst ever finish.

They’ve gone from Premier League to needing a play-off to get out of League One. Whilst this would be their worst ever finish, it would be hard to argue things are as bad as they were a year ago when they slid out of the Championship.

Some lessons appear not to have been learned. The Stadium of Light is bound to be packed and as fans clamour for tickets, the club’s Twitter feed is taking some stick.

It appears those wanting to order over the phone have struggled, as well as the website going down as well. Fans are struggling to get their hands on the golden tickets.

If they were a League Two club with an accidental big game, you could understand the confusion, but is this the sort of thing that should be expected from a side who up until two years ago regularly played Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea?
