Sunderland fans are not happy with Chris Coleman’s comments about their home form.
Speaking after yet another home defeat on Tuesday, Coleman seemed optimistic about the game at QPR this weekend solely because it isn’t at home.
“We have another game in 4 days, maybe it is good it is away from home because we do not perform here,” the Welshman said.
Coleman’s side showed all their worst qualities against Villa on Tuesday night, allowing Lewis Grabban to score from a failed clearance before letting James Chester nod home in first half stoppage time to double the lead.
The hosts showed little signs of life before conceding the third goal, prompting shouts of “you’re not fit to wear the shirt” from the home fans.
Three-nil did not flatter Aston Villa, and the home form simply cannot continue if Sunderland are to stay up. The Black Cats have won just twice at home in the league all season.
The final home game of the season is against promotion favourites Wolves, but Preston, Sheffield Wednesday, Norwich and Burton Albion all make trips to the Stadium of Light before then. While none of these are easy fixtures, they are certainly winnable.
Sunderland fans have been reacting to Coleman’s comments on Twitter, and they are not best pleased…
then get them performing here……

We might have a chance if you actually go out to win games. Go back to 442. Something has to change in the last 10 games. Play maja and Asoro up top or lua lua and Asoro. Needs to dump fletcher back in the river tees.

You can’t just write home games off? Get them performing. You are the manager!
