Sunderland: Keith Downie strikes the wrong chord with Black Cats fans

Sunderland: Keith Downie strikes the wrong chord with Black Cats fans - Sunderland

Many Sunderland fans replied to a tweet from Sky Sport’s Keith Downie, who shared his reaction to the second series of Netflix’s documentary series, Sunderland ‘Til I Die. 

Although club director Charlie Methven has been the centre of attention after the release of the latest series, the football reporter specifically focused his attention on Josh Maja’s controversial exit from Wearside.

Downie copped a fair amount of criticism when he suggested the striker wanted to leave the Stadium of Light last January and is clearly making his feelings known.

The 21-year-old netted 17 goals and provided 2 assists in all competitions, before departing for the Girondins, where he has scored 9 times in 31 appearances for Paulo Sousa’s side. Meanwhile, Maja’s successor Will Grigg has only scored once for the Black Cats in League One all season, despite featuring in 20 games.
