Sunderland fans react as George Dobson slams Black Cats’ display

Premiership Picks

Sunderland were once again plagued by the 1-1 curse this weekend, but fans are delighted with the reaction of one summer signing.

The Black Cats were held at Portman Road to their second 1-1 draw in as many games, which was also their most popular score-line last season.

Jack Ross’ side drew a whopping 19 out of 46 matches in his debut campaign, and they have started out exactly where they left off, looking overwhelmingly average in every department.

But after a frustrating afternoon in which they registered 14 less shots than the hosts and just one effort on target in the entire 90 minutes, summer arrival George Dobson delivered a very frank assessment of the performance.

“The first half wasn’t acceptable,” he said.

“We came in at half-time and a few things were said about how it just wasn’t acceptable for the size of the club, what we are in this league. We weren’t even doing the basics right.”

The tough-tackling 21 year-old was captain at a very young age at Walsall, and the Wearside faithful are starting to see why, as he spoke at length about the problems his side encountered.

Check out some of the Twitter reactions down below, where most of the fans are delighted with Dobson’s brutal honesty…
