Man United v Sunderland
There’s a small group of Manchester United fans on social media who still aren’t over it.
It all stems back to the final day of the 2011-12 Premier League season.
Man United beat Sunderland 1-0 at the Stadium of Light and, when the full-time whistle blew, Man City were losing 2-1 at home to QPR.
City needed to beat QPR to win the title. And they managed to do that with two injury time goals from Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero.
When City’s victory filtered through, Sunderland’s fans mocked United by ‘doing the Poznan’ in the stands.
After the game Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed he “would not forget” how the Sunderland fans behaved.
More recently, back in March 2014, Sunderland took on Man United in, what was then called, the Capital One Cup final.
Sunderland took the lead at Wembley in memorable scenes through Fabio Borini.
After the goal the Wearsiders celebrated the goal by adopting Man City’s famous Poznan celebration once again.
Bitter Man United fans
It’s now desperate times for Sunderland.
They were relegated from the Premier League last season, and they are on course to be relegated out of the Championship to League One.
They’ve failed to win any of their last eight matches, while they haven’t won a league match at home since December 2016.
On Tuesday night they were hammered 5-2 at Ipswich.
Almost comically, as Sunderland nosedive down the divisions, some Man United fans are still bothered about the Poznan.
See how a handful of tweets have gained attention in the past few days.
