Simon Grayson’s men were floored by former Black Cats striker Martyn Waghorn’s opener and, despite equalising, they were well beaten at Portman Road to leave them third-bottom in the Championship, with just one win in their first 10 matches.

Here’s how some Sunderland fans reacted on Twitter.

@andyoots: the one bit of pride I currently have left in being affiliated with this hex ridden cesspit of a club is the amazing fans

@Karl86Stewart: No bloody heart what’s so ever!!!!!

@Heffer74: Can James Herriot not come back and put us down?

@Jaketulloch91: Another terrific result Sunderland our defence is beyond a joke

@amirley: When will this be over, there is only so much we can take

@christoph_21: For all the lack of investment has hamstrung #SAFC, we’ve just lost 5-2 to a side that has spent £4m in two seasons. Less than a Lamine Kone

@feed_me_hiphop: What an absolute mess #SAFC. More to come at Preston too, it’s clear the players don’t hurt anywhere near enough. Gutless and spineless.

@AndyDav66: Good news is we are still 3rd bottom

@Cain_Paul75: Over to you Mr Short #safc #disgrace #embarrassing

@tattyboo74: There needs to be a change at my club and it needs to be quick

@daveg_safc: It’s like oyston and Blackpool all over again.

@Safc85: Allardyce is the only one I’d change Grayson for

@MyOwnFlag_: I can’t keep the faith much longer, Short makes Ashley look like a good chairman, this teams a disgrace

@DanielJenks89: I do hope Grayson gives them a proper rollicking in the dressing room.

@Mr_B_Heat: Good gawd,will the pain ever end.Shambolic laughing stock

@matt_safc: Great effort lads. Well done.

@LiamB_SAFC: Sorry like but completely turned on Grayson after this. He’s to blame for games like this.

@NeilMoore4: Work in progress is fine, but I don’t see any progress to be fair - time for action

@ernzh671: I’m glad I stopped going years ago, still hurts nonetheless, the club from Short to the fans is on its knees, we’ll be lucky to stay up

@adamhutch_safc: Grayson been a disaster tbf but until short sells #SAFC by lowering his valuation to someone with fresh impetus nowt will change #shortout

@MDryden11: What a state our club is in

@afootyeducation: Each and every one of those poor souls who travelled to Ipswich tonight, quite simply deserve a full refund

@garyjerry: We’re beyond the bottom of the barrel. Doomed. Again.

@sportmad72: Grayson dealt a rough deal but he’s out of his depth. Time to go.

@SAFC_NYorkshire: Appalling. Time for a change.

@Brylcream_Boy: The worst thing is I’m not sure anyone could motivate this squad #NoHeart #NoDesire

@Jaklocker: Really struggling to to find any positives with our game now, something needs to change

@blackcatkw: This can’t go on.
