Lots of Sunderland fans have been blasting the performance of Tom Flanagan in their 1-1 draw at Accrington Stanley on Saturday.
It was a disappointing draw in the end for Lee Johnson’s team, who took the lead through Aiden O’Brien. Ross Sykes was later given a red card for the home side, but they still managed to snatch a late equaliser through Mitchell Clark.
Should Sunderland start Flanagan?
Nonetheless, Flanagan struggled at times at the back, losing out on five duels, while he also made just one interception and gave possession away 17 times, the fifth-most out of any Black Cats player (SofaScore).
Some Sunderland fans are becoming increasingly agitated with his performances of late, and the Northern Ireland defender knows that he needs to improve amid a promotion charge.

“Tom Flanagan is a liability at any level. Always runs like his legs are tied up.”
