Twitter Reacts To Sunderland Stunning Chelsea

New, comment

Occasionally, we like seeing what people say about Sunderland!

Mike Hewitt

We don't often do this because, to be honest, it would usually involve us specifically going out and searching for people saying how rubbish we are, and that's just no one's idea of a fun post-match evening.

But since Sunderland have done something a little special, we gave Twitter a brief scan to pick out some of the comments. Enjoy.
