Sunderland fans bash Newcastle as Magpies toil in relegation zone

Loads of Sunderland fans have been reacting to this weekend’s football, as their arch-rivals fell to yet another defeat.

The tides turn pretty quickly in the North East, and this time it’s Sunderland’s turn to laugh at Newcastle.

The Black Cats got their fair share of digs in when the Magpies were relegated two seasons ago, only for Rafael Benitez’s side to flip the script and earn promotion at the first attempt while their rivals went the other way.

While League One football isn’t going entirely to plan for Sunderland, Benitez’s side have picked up just two points from seven Premier League games this season, and it’s starting to look like the two could meet again in the Championship next season.

Newcastle had an absolutely brutal fixture list to open the season, but have taken just one point from their last two games against Crystal Palace and Leicester.

The Magpies have scored just four goals so far this season, and plenty of fans are getting tired of the negative brand of football.

Sunderland fans are lapping it up, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
