Sunderland fans are delighted with comments from manager Lee Johnson after their 2-2 draw with Crewe Alexandra on Saturday.
The Black Cats were perhaps confident to come away with a point from Gresty Road. With less than 15 minutes left on the clock, the Stadium of Light outfit found themselves 2-0 down. Fortunately, Jordan Jones and Charlie Wyke were on hand to earn their side a point.
After the match, Johnson spoke to the club’s media team about the performance. He did not hold back in his criticism of his team’s display early on, saying he could have made five substitutions by the 20-minute mark.
Will Sunderland get promoted?
The comments, which were shared on the club’s official Twitter account, were met positively by the club’s supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the comments from Johnson below
““5 subs after 20 minutes…” unreal to hear that from a gaffer #safc”
“Everything he’s said there is absolutely bang on. Win the next two home games and it could be a good point”
“Lee’s interviews are refreshingly honest, win, lose, or draw. He has a vision and passion that IMO has been missing. For the first time in a long time we have a team that wants to play for the manager. The future looks brighter for safc for a change.”
“Fantastically put and i have been very impressed by him so far BUT can he put his words into actions by dropping the likes of Gooch as he isn’t doing it and giving the two goalscorers a start as he did say “they both took their opportunity””
“What a absolute breath of fresh air this lad is. Says it how it is no matter the result. I Look forward to hearing him speak everytime, completely restored my faith & many others I can imagine. Believe for the first time in a good while, we are heading in the right direction”
“I could listen to this guy all day, tells it how it is, we was shit and that’s what he said, hes the man to take us forward young and refreshing”
