Sunderland’s recent woes continued last night in the EFL Trophy as the Black Cats lost to Scunthorpe United 3-0 in what was a highly concerning result.
The men from Wearside have seen their manager change in the last month or so with Phil Parkinson coming in for Jack Ross but, as yet, there’s really been little improvement.
Form is far from ideal and, though the EFL Trophy is by no means a competition that the club is prioritising, losing to a lowly League Two team with their own struggles going on is hardly going to build confidence.
Some worrying times for fans of the Black Cats, then, and that has certainly been reflected in the reaction to the result from supporters on social media since last night.
With that in mind, then, let’s take a look at what fans of the men in red and white have had to say about this most recent of setbacks:

Is it not Reidys or Phillips birthday this week so we can stick a daft post on again? Pathetic.

Del Boy and Rodney have achieved the impossible and made us worse than Ellis.
