'Absolute garbage!': Sunderland fans hit out at Phil Parkinson and squad after 'shocking' performance

Sunderland fans have been quick to voice their verdict after another disappointing result away at Gillingham.

Saturday, 7th December 2019, 4:56 pm

The Black Cats were beaten 1-0 at Priestfield, with Connor Ogilvie’s late strike sealing the three points – albeit in controversial circumstances after a late Charlie Wyke goal was disallowed.

And supporters were far from pleased, and here’s what they had to say on social media after another away defeat:

@Dyl164 said: “Never thought I’d see the day where Sunderland were a mid table (at best) league 1 side being played off the park by Gillingham. Absolute shambles.”

@RamseySAFC added: “Unpopular opinion: No one has played well, but Grigg has been our best player.”

@CllrCallaghan posted: “This season is an absolute write off already. #SAFC deserve so much better than Phil Parkinson and the absolute gutter management at the top of the club.”

@ColArmstrong tweeted: “Can we start playing our attacking football again Phil?”

@Laking86 commented: “I think I’d rather have a David Moyes manager, Howard Wilkinson DoF combination than what Parkinson is providing. Absolutely awful”

@Haynesy03 added: “Phil Parkinson has had 10 full days with this squad. Nothing has changed at all.”

@Ian_Crow3 said: “Pitiful that. Created nowt. Shocking defending. We lucky. They hit bar twice. One arguably over the line. Disgrace and it's getting worse every game.”

@tmalbrghtn tweeted: “Parkinsons had 10 days to sort this & the best he’s managed to come up with is doubling the number of strikers on the pitch who arent recieving any service.”

@LukeWrightson added: “Watching #safc is such a downer man, terrible.”

@SeaWeasil posted: “Within a year we've gone from the most dangerous team in the league, with huge support from neutrals due to our amazing fans and away attendance, to a bang average League 1 side. We are not what we used to be. But we can be. Need to turn this slump around.”

@CraigLisgo said: “Embarrassing once again, this club needs a lift from somewhere and it’s not incoming with these owners, manager or players”

@JLwest40 suggested: “Gona be a ghost town next week at the SOL if we dont turn it around”
