‘Calculated,’ ‘Keep it’ – Plenty of Sunderland fans react to player’s apology



Sunderland found themselves on the receiving end of some rough tactics at the weekend as a robust Wycombe team held them to a 1-1 draw.

The Black Cats trailed for much of the encounter at Adams Park, equalising in a crazy period of injury time during which three players were sent off.

George Honeyman and Nathan Tyson were both dismissed for their roles in a mass brawl that ensued in the wake of Watmore’s equaliser, before Marcus Bean got a second yellow card for a foul on the flying winger.

That tackle forced Watmore to limp off the field and he’s now a doubt for this week’s crucial match against Barnsley.

Bean later apologised for the challenge on social media, claiming he meant no malice and wishing the 25-year-old a speedy recovery.

Sunderland fans are not impressed at the move. Whilst there seems to be low levels of animosity towards Marcus Bean, there’s plenty of vitriol in their responses at Gareth Ainsworth and Wycombe.

Here’s some of their thoughts in the aftermath of the result.
