‘Waste of a shirt’, ‘Worst on pitch’ – Plenty of Sunderland fans frustrated by one man in disappointing Northampton draw

Published

on

Sunderland played out a dull goalless draw with Northampton Town yesterday and many Black Cats fans have been left fuming at midfielder Josh Scowen. 

The Black Cats were playing their first game since the 15th of December due to postponements but they looked more out of touch than rested, failing to find much fluidity at the PTS Academy Stadium.

Charlie Wyke had arguably their best chances to find the net but was unable to make either count but it was Scowen that seems to have caught the attention of many Sunderland fans, for all the wrong reasons.

The 27-year-old started alongside Max Power in midfield and was underwhelming – connecting with just 67% of his passes, only winning nine of his 19 defensive duels, and losing possession 20 times (Sofascore).

Scowen went into the referee’s book in the 44th minute and was nearly shown a second yellow not long after, while perhaps his most influential moment in the game saw him narrowly fail to connect and turn in a cross from Aiden McGeady at the back post.

Did these 20 things happen to Sunderland in 2020?

Have Sunderland had a player sent-off in 2020? 

He doesn’t seem to a particularly popular figure among the Stadium of Light faithful, with many Black Cats supporters taking to Twitter to fume about his performance.
