Angry Sunderland AFC fans took to social media to vent their frustration after seeing their side lose 2-0 to Bournemouth.

The Black Cats were supported by 1,200 travelling fans at Dean Court but they were left with little reward for making the 700-mile round-trip.

Twitter exploded after the match and here are some of the tweets sent by #SAFC fans:

An angry Michael Scullion said: “Appalling defending throughout...Kaboul played like a Sunday clogger after a 15 pint Saturday session.’

Phyllis Ridsdel had this suggestion: “Start paying them what they worth minimum wage sounds good.

‘Or maybe good idea to pay full pay for a win half pay for draw and zero for getting beat. They are rubbish.’

John Ridley tweeted: ‘Didn’t look up for it. Didn’t try. Made Distin look like a world beater. Long balls to Defoe. Made Bournemouth look class.’

Alistair Leadbetter said: ‘I expect little excitement and pleasure from #SAFC but they don’t even deliver that these days. Grim resignation so early on the season.’

David Bourne tweeted: ‘When you have a defence which consists essentially of players other clubs didn’t want, then you’re in trouble #SAFC.’

Emma Wright was far from pleased tweeting: ‘SAFC are an absolute shambles, last Sunday’s displays gives us hope and [on Saturday] the hope is snatched away as per usual.’

Jane Moran said: ‘What a time to be alive, just end the season and relegate us rather than putting us through this every week #SAFC.’

Meanwhile, some fans are keen to see the younger players given a chance - with the Capital One Cup third round match against Manchester City to come on Tuesday night.

Barrie Waller said: ‘I think we are obsessed with these so called money buys....Give Mandron, Watmore, Gooch, Beadling (when fit), Honeyman a chance.’

Mark Cuthbert tweeted: ‘How are Swansea, Stoke, Southampton, Palace etc all so far ahead of #Sunderland with 40,000 or more every week.’

Stephen Liddle added: ‘Why not play a few of the under 21s.’
