Sunderland: Fans react to Chris Brown’s criticism of the fanbase

Former Sunderland player Chris Brown has spoken about some sections of the Black Cats’ fanbase and suggested that they are among the worst for the abuse they give to players.

Speaking on his Under The Cosh podcast, as reported by the Roker Report, the ex-striker spoke about the treatment he received from supporters, and what his teammates had to deal with. In particular, he paid attention to former goalkeepers Kelvin Davis and Jason Steele, both of whom were part of severely under-performing Sunderland teams, Davis getting relegated from the Premier League with 19 points and Steele part of the relegated Championship side.
