After the 4-0 thrashing by Cardiff City and having been a Sunderland supporter and season ticket holder for more than 50 years I am now of the opinion that the club is a shambles and that I am a mug for going to watch them.

It has become a bad habit attending games, a pointless and painful way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

He will only shrug his shoulders and keep expecting the fans to keep turning up no matter what.

I believe that the fans should choose a game and miss it.

If this happened the press and social media would take note much more than writing about fans chanting for the chairman to leave.

This is the worst Sunderland team I have seen for many years and I expect relegation.

We are not a big club any more – we are a joke.
