Sunderland fans crucify Jack Ross’ centre back signings

Sunderland played out perhaps the maddest game of the English Football League season so far on Saturday, and fans are furious with two summer signings – Jack Baldwin and Tom Flanagan.

The Black Cats suffered a big setback in the race for automatic promotion on Saturday. While they lost 5-4 at home to Coventry, each of Barnsley, Portsmouth, Charlton and Doncaster picked up three points.

And Jack Ross’ side can have no complaints about the result, as their defending throughout the afternoon was nothing short of abysmal.

Bright Enobakhare opened the scoring before George Honeyman levelled, but goals from Amadou Bakayoko and Jordy Hiwula made it 3-1 to the visitors, with the latter strike deflecting in off Baldwin.

Charlie Wyke and Will Grigg both got on the scoresheet from close range to level things up again, only for Jordan Shipley and Max Power to trade goals and make it 4-4.

Finally, Conor Chaplin provided the decisive strike after a mistake from Flanagan.

Unsurprisingly after conceding five goals at home, fans are slamming the two centre backs, both of whom were signed by Ross last summer.
