@_Kieron_Gibson_: “Not gunna please everyone but you can tell the lads have been up for this today, play like this the next two games and that’s a guaranteed 6 points #safc”

@gordonfarhaway: “I just wish we would play to our strengths but I don’t know what they are #safc”

@ConnorGardner: “Game In hand is a myth. My ice cold hands however, aren’t. #SAFC.”

@sunderlandlads1: “Written in the stars this was #safc #sunderland.”

@JamieSAFC_: “Other than the Pritchard sub, what could he have possibly done different here? We've had chances just not taken them.”

@Kevsol: “No ruthlessness. Utterly wasteful in front of goal. We rarely win those games against the decent sides.”

@Kevsafc22: “Played well 2nd half in all fairness. Embleton bright since coming on. 3mins of injury time is a joke given Oxfords time wasting.”

@DanMeister1234: “Name a more iconic duo than Sunderland and a 1-1 draw in an important league game ...Yes, question marks on Johnson but that's on the players for me - again, it seems like the expectations of the club are too big for some of them on the pitch!! #SAFC”
