Fans on social media may have done their best to milk last night’s win over our U-21’s – but their club captain’s reaction to the win was even more laughable; with him ‘shushing’ the NUFC fans and claiming he’s now given Sunderland some ‘bragging rights’.
Sunderland captain Chris Maguire (yeh, I’ve not heard of him either) went to ‘shush’ the travelling NUFC fans after he scored a goal against our team of kids. This bloke turns 30 next month:
The smugness of Sunderland’s tweet is almost as bad as the celebration. It’s as if he’s just scored to beat our first-team in the FA Cup, but we’ll let him off given it’s probably the closest he’ll come to scoring against a Premier League club.
It gets worse though. Here’s what he’s now said today about the game, his celebration and what the win means for Sunderland:
“If you try and give me abuse then I’ll have the last laugh – and I did!”
“It was a no-win situation for us, if we won we were expected to win but there was a good crowd turned up and we gave the fans something to cheer about and bragging rights too!”
Here’s some brilliant reactions from Newcastle fans to the laughable celebration:
“Sunderland had to sit there and take it today. They largely did that well.But this celebration was not sitting there and taking it. This celebration was making a fool out of yourself. Well done, Chris Thingy.”
“Announce a new documentary lads!”
“Scoring against a third string team that big a deal to Chris?”
“Sunderland captain Chris Maguire, who turns 30 this month, shushing the travelling NUFC support after he scored a goal against a team of U21 kids. This is hilarious. What a sad little man.”
“Leave him alone that biggest game he’s ever played in.”
He’s let them down really. They called it a ‘lose-lose’ situation where a win would not be celebrated and a loss would’ve been devastating – yet this is the reaction to a goal from their 29-year-old club captain.
A classless moment, but one that’s only highlighted their complete and utter fall from grace in English football.
