Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Tom Flanagan against Oxford United at the weekend.
Flanagan was in action for Sunderland in their League One game against Oxford at the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon.
The 27-year-old central defender started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as it ended in a 1-1 draw.
Although the former Milton Keynes Dons and Burton Albion central defender started the match well, he struggled to maintain that level, and made some bad decisions at the back.
Sunderland fans were not impressed with the performance of Flanagan against Oxford and have criticised the Northern Ireland international defender on Twitter.
Below are some of the best comments:
95% sure Flanagan doesn’t control his own legs— Connor Smith (@ConnorSAFC1994) August 3, 2019
McNulty the absolute highlight of today! Flanagan is still woeful who on earth think he’s better than Ozturk?#Safc— Joe (@MVN_98) August 3, 2019
Please sell Flanagan— Phil (@PhilSAFC73) August 3, 2019
Denver Hume is a rotten footballer, Flanagan has got worse even though I thought players could only improve, get Ozturk alongside Willis and put any cunt in for Hume, My patience is wearing thin with JR ##SAFC— MΔRCO LUND (@MarcoLund88) August 3, 2019
We need some defenders in. Flanagan was awful today, Willis I’ll put his shaky moments down to nerves to be kind but could definitely do with another CH in and left back/LWB— Scott (@76skelly) August 3, 2019
At least the new signings all did fairly well. Got to replace Flanagan at centre-half though, he’s hopeless #safc— David Allison (@davidallison88) August 4, 2019
Gooch and Not Big Jon seemed to have a better understanding in the second half.— It's Just Lee (@LMc10_SAFC) August 4, 2019
The less said about Flanagan and Hume the better.
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.
Over the course of the 90 minutes at the Stadium of Light, hosts Sunderland had 59% of the possession, took nine shots of which three were on target, and earned six corners, according to BBC Sport.
