‘Fed up’, ‘Worst I’ve ever seen’ – These Sunderland fans react to 21-y/o’s interview

Sunderland meet Shrewsbury Town tomorrow, hoping to get their League One promotion campaign back on track after home defeat in midweek.

Both teams have been affected by Covid in recent weeks and need points at different ends of the table, although Salop are unbeaten in their last eight league matches. It promises to be a tough afternoon for the Black Cats, who have won just one of their last five outings.

Sunderland youngster Jack Diamond believe it will be a tough encounter, not least because it is at the Stadium of Light.

“We’ve got to bounce back after defeat on Tuesday, every game is important at this stage of the season,” said Diamond. “Whenever anyone comes and plays Sunderland it is a big game for them and they want to do one over on us, so we have to be first to it and rise to every occasion.”

With the right set of results, a win could see Sunderland enter the top six once again, but defeat may mean the gap is as much as six points, so there is a huge amount riding on the game. However, it seems some Sunderland supporters are tired of hearing how they are everyone’s cup tie.

The Black Cats have been beaten four times at home this season, only winning three, a record similar to Northampton in 20th place. That isn’t acceptable for a side used to playing in the Premier League, and these fans are sick of hearing about how big they are, or suppose they are.
