The Black Cats are bottom of the Premier League table, having not won in their first eight matches this season.

The club has warned, though, that season ticket holders are not permitted to sell their seats online.

A post on the eBay page says: "I can't make my kids suffer any more. I've had enough.

"Still all 15 games left on these cards.

"I've suffered Boro, Palace, Everton and West Brom.

"Now it's time to pass the misery onto some other poor family.

"Great seats, all together in the family zone (like gold dust, you can't get three together in this end any more).

"Collection with cash please or I'll send special delivery for PayPal payments."

Steven Mustard added: "Whys it drastic?? We've been rubbish for too long now."

Chris Gooch said: "Not worth a ragman's balloon."
