@SleevesElliott: If Sunderland played their three keepers this year at the same time they still would concede!!! #safc

@HOLLA1977: Just got back home from watching the game, WOW!!! #SAFC

@WiseMenSayPod: The worst #safc side in nigh on 130 years of history. That is factually correct, not opinion #SAFC

@LBarks72: I would quite happily appeal to the FA just to relegate the club now without having to endure further embarrassment #safc

@Yellowbug1969: The McMenemy side that last got relegated to the third tier would still beat this lot at least 3-0. And most of them must be kicking in closer to 60 now #SAFC

@BillyJonesnthat: So, it's the day after last night's horror show. Once again poor tactics, shambolic defending and a striker who's about as much use as a ripped plastic bag. #SAFC

@shellsy87 4: #safc aren’t even a laughing stock anymore, we are a charity case

@LBrennan89: I’m not against Coleman, I respect him for even being here but that starting XI wasn’t gonna win a thing last night. Asoro, Maja and Williams all should have started. The players just aren’t up for the fight and it’s heartbreaking to see #safc
