Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance Will Grigg against Oxford United.
Grigg featured for Sunderland in their League One game against Oxford at the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon.
The 28-year-old striker started the match and played for 71 minutes, as it ended in a 1-1 draw.
Although the Northern Ireland international striker started the game well, he faded away and failed to make any meaningful impact.
Sunderland fans were not impressed with the performance of Grigg and have criticised the striker on Twitter.
Below are some of the best comments:
Will Grigg doesn’t look interested at all and looks even more lazier. Becoming very hard to back him..#SAFC— TheRokerEnd (@TheRokerEnd) August 3, 2019
Grigg is a worry. Wasn’t surprising in the slightest that some better balls got played across the box after he’d gone off.... in time honoured Sunderland tradition— Scott (@76skelly) August 3, 2019
No it isn’t. The problem is Grigg’s complete lack of movement of the ball, he stands waiting for the ball to come to him. There was multiple crosses that went across the ground last season that if Maja was in the team would lead to a goal— SAFC DAVID (@DavidHindmarsh7) August 4, 2019
Safc vs Oxford— Ben Said Scott (@BenSaidScott) August 4, 2019
Safc more of a plan going forward, grigg was woeful, and Hume/ Gooch pore with final delivery going forward. Flanagan atrocious.
Oxford looked lacking up front but Fosu was great, good at time wasting with the men behind the ball.
I’d persist with Grigg and McNulty together me, no, Grigg doesn’t look like he’s going to score the goals we thought he would but dropping deep yesterday opened up space for McNulty further up the pitch, reason McNulty looked better first half.— Rich (@RichGarrattSAFC) August 4, 2019
100% a proper Number 10 is needed.
His movement and anticipation just isn’t good enough— kevin defty (@kevindefty1) August 4, 2019
He has to show some interest 1st.— Scott (@mackem_badger) August 4, 2019
Best place for him, is on the bench, Bone idol. McNulty done more yesterday in 45 mins than grigg has done in 6 months at the club.
Over the course of the 90 minutes at the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon, hosts Sunderland had 59% of the possession, took nine shots of which three were on target, and earned six corners, according to BBC Sport.
