'Sack the lot' - Sunderland fans left FUMING following poor showing against Lincoln City in League One play-off semi-final
It was a disaster for Sunderland in the first-leg of their League One play-off semi-final at Sincil Bank this evening.
The Black Cats now trail 2-0 heading into the second leg at the Stadium of Light on Saturday after losing against Lincoln City tonight.
It’s not mission impossible for Sunderland but Lee Johnson’s men now face a mammoth task to overturn the deficit on Wearside in front of 10,000 fans.
The second particularly struck a nerve after a defensive mix-up between defender Tom Flanagan and goalkeeper Lee Burge.
Here’s how you reacted on Twitter to the disastrous first-leg defeat against Lincoln City:
@mattsmith2707: “Sack the lot.”
@no1mackem: "Pathetic, players not good enough for pub team and Johnson does give u confidence in his team selection, sack the lot.”
@JonathanPlace1: “Of course we can’t turn this round. We’re lacking everywhere, including the management team.”
@JRGreen99: “Woeful defending- slow to attack. McGeady hits the target or one of those crossbar attempts goes in then it’s a different game. Confident we can get at least two goals at home.”
@dazzasafc85: “1-0 down and brings on Leadbitter. Maguire not even a run out. I'm sorry but my patience with Johnson is running very thin.
@trusty4480: “I think Bailey Wright is getting off Scot-free here, a free header 6 yards out, should of bust the net.”
@Jadamson11: “It’s mental to me that Johnson isn’t getting any flak for this. If this was Parkinson or Ross, there would be uproar.”
@DeanCruddace: “Flanagan for the first, Flanagan & Burge for the second.”
