Sunderland fans are absolutely furious with Lee Camp after the goalkeeper’s horrendous display made life easy for Sheffield Wednesday on Monday.
There looked to be life in Sunderland’s season on Friday night as the Black Cats romped to a 4-1 win against playoff chasing Derby, but fans’ hopes were soon quashed by some horrific defending in Monday’s defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.
The Owls left the Stadium of Light with a 3-1 win, courtesy of goals from Lucas Joao, Tom Lees and Atdhe Nuhiu, but if truth be told they didn’t have to work all that hard.
Sunderland were actually the better team for large parts of the match, but some shambolic defending combined with Camp’s ability to make any cross look dangerous shattered their survival hopes.
The 33 year-old keeper, who started his career with Derby, joined from Cardiff in January, but has far from impressed fans.
Despite a few great saves since the move, Camp’s struggles with balls into the box have frustrated fans, and been made even worse by the shaky defending in front of him.
Fans have been mercilessly attacking Camp for his performance, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…

I just have Martin Bain uttering the word "efficient" when describing the sale of Vito Mannone for two million quid ringing around my head this morning.
