Sunderland fans turn on George Honeyman after Blackpool draw

Sunderland failed to take advantage of another one of their games in-hand in the League One promotion race as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Blackpool at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night, and some Black Cats fans are turning on captain George Honeyman.

The Mackems skipper started in a central role but often seemed to drift out to the right, and he had little impact in the final third for Jack Ross’ men who had to rely on defender Jack Baldwin to rescue a point against the Seasiders in the 75th minute.

It was the Wearside outfit’s 13th league draw of the campaign and left them four points adrift of second-placed Barnsley with only one fixture in-hand remaining, and it is clear that something needs to change for them in attacking areas if they are to pick up more victories.

Whether dropping Honeyman from the starting XI will ensure that happens remains to be seen, but many Sunderland supporters have made their feelings on their 24-year-old leader perfectly clear.

While one said “every time George Honeyman plays, Sunderland are effectively playing with 10 men”, another said “Honeyman is rubbish and shouldn’t even be in the 18”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
