Sunderland suffered their first defeat in 15 games (Sky Sports) on Saturday against Charlton Athletic in League One, and the fans were far from happy with the performance of Josh Scowen.
The Black Cats are currently fighting for promotion to the Championship, but their 2-1 defeat against The Addicks is a huge blow to those hopes. Unfortunately, despite spending much of the match in control, they were unable to beat an opponent who themselves are also eyeing one of those coveted promotion spots.
The performance of Scowen was particularly disappointing for the fans. He actually put the ball into his own net to give the London outfit the lead, and struggled throughout the game in the middle of the park. Lee Johnson will be expecting more from him during the remaining few weeks of the season, even though he did grab what turned out to be a consolation goal.
Was Scowen Sunderland's worst player vs Charlton?
The fans took took to social media platform Twitter in their droves to share their thoughts on his display.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Scowen below
“Scowen is a waste of space”
“Got nowt to do with that, when we play the right team we can create and score. Scowen in midfield totally ruins the team”
“Scowen is virtually on the line. It’s absolutely pathetic 4th division Sunday league clearance. If he can’t kick a ball like that properly then he needs to find another sport”
“Scowen is embarrassing but making that save look like is shocking, he’s dove past the ball and then parried it back into the goal, embarrassing”
“Get Scowen off I am not sure what he actually does full stop.”
“How is Scowen still on the pitch? Dreadful”
