Sunderland fans were far from happy with the showing of Josh Scowen during their match against Blackpool in League One on Saturday.
The Black Cats hopes of automatic promotion to the Championship lay in tatters. 2-1 defeats to Charlton Athletic and Wigan Athletic already put them on the back foot, but the 1-0 loss to the Seasiders means they are now eight points behind Peterborough in second with five games left to play (BBC).
The display of Scowen was particularly disappointing for the Black Cats supporters. He has come under fire in the past for his showings, and it was the same again here against Blackpool as he struggled to give his side the upper hand in the middle of the park. His passing, in particular, was criticised by the fans, as he lost possession 15 times, per Sofascore.
Will Sunderland get promoted?
The Stadium of Light faithful were far from happy with that they saw, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts on the showing.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Scowen below
“I feel qualified to speak on this as I’ve watched so many bad players for Sunderland: Josh Scowen is one of the worst players I’ve ever seen, and Lee Burge is an atrocious goalkeeper.”
“Scowen is a horrendous footballer”
“Scowen couldn’t pass water so far today”
“He’s rancid scowen like”
“Scowen – Can’t pass. Can’t shoot. Doesn’t create. Doesn’t get into the box. Does give away possession. Does give away needless free kicks. #safc SIMPLY NOT GOOD ENOUGH.”
“He’s been needing to come off for about 2 hours we’ve only played 94 minutes”
In other news, Sunderland fans are delighted with news on this man.
