Things are going from bad to worse for Sunderland, and fans have been reacting to the rumours that Jonny Williams was involved in a fight at a nightclub on Saturday night.
There comes a point for football fans where disappointment is replaced with acceptance, and acceptance becomes humour. Sunderland fans are well beyond that point now, after their side continued their horror home form on Saturday.
Chris Coleman’s side lost 2-0 to Preston North End at the Stadium of Light, but that wasn’t the only bad news this weekend.
Darron Gibson was suspended by the club for an incident that happened on Saturday morning; the 30 year-old crashed his car in a residential area and was arrested on suspicion of driving over the legal alcohol limit.
As if the defeat and news about Gibson wasn’t bad enough, rumours are spreading on Twitter that the injured Jonny Williams was involved in an incident in a nightclub in Kent. Williams has taken considerable flak from fans for his lack of involvement due to injuries this season, and fans have taken to Twitter to laugh at the current state of their club.
Some of the best reactions can be found below…
So yesterday, Gibson crashes into 4 other cars while over the limit just before noon and gets arrested, we lose 0-2 at home to Preston – pretty much relegated again, n Jonny Williams gets punched in a club in Kent owa a lass. Sunderland.
