    Alex Bruce, son of former Sunderland boss Steve, has launched a scathing attack on the club's fans following their 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday.

    Bruce Jnr took to Twitter to point out that the result had condemned the Black Cats, who replaced his father with Martin O'Neill earlier this season, to a 14th place finish in the Premier League, four places lower than 12 months ago.

    "Sunderland finished 14th....... Funny old game!! Last year they were 10th," wrote Bruce, in a thinly veiled attack against the club.

    His tweet evoked a furious response from one Black Cat fan, @ryanyids, who responded: "What's that supposed to mean Steve would of relegated them the way he was going!"

    Minutes later Bruce Jnr, recently released by Leeds United, hit back: "Bollox!! He got sacked after 12 games you's have done worse the last 13 games than he ever did!!

    But the defender wasn't finished there and he soon aimed both barrels at Sunderland's support for their reaction to Manchester City's late winner at the Etihad Stadium which ended the title hopes of Steve Bruce's former club, United.

    "Hearing Sunderland fans cheer when City score sums them lot up!! Worry about your own team you were beaten today!!," he wrote.

    I think Alex is a bit of a knob, to be fair.

    Were Sunderland fans actually cheering when they found out City had scored?

    That's possibly the most small time thing that's ever happened (outside of Wigan) if true.

    Dont understand why they were cheering City but feck em they deserve to be 14th anyway. Brucie would have done alright with them theres only so much you can do with a club that size ffs.

    Exactly

    And its not as if there has never been a "you are going down" chant at OT over the years after beating various relegation fodder in the past.

    He's obviously a United fan. Taking a pop at the fans/club who fire his old man and finished the season in a worse position than they did last year, watching their team lose whilst jumping up and down and cheering like spastics.

    Can't see anything wrong with it myself. feck knows why any other United fans would slag him off for it.

    The Sunderland fans were, in the main, being cnuts at full-time... particularly those around me. The biggest cheers from their end only came when anything City related happened... infact, at half time, the cheer for 1-0 City was bigger then for Everton 2-0 Newcastle... which is saying something.

    Their joy at seeing us lose the title was pathetic. There were probably more of them doing the Poznan than City fans at the end of both matches. I hope City absolutely annihilate them when they play each other for ironies sake and I'd love to see us give them an absolute hammering for good measure too.

    I noticed that. Can't really get my head round that kind of mentality but meh, there's bigger things to be pissed off with on the day that's in it.

    Can someone not be objective without there being some edge to it? We all support the club differently.

    Yeah, but thats football fans. We would have giving them a load of shit if say, another team had scored in the last minute and sent them down or whatever. Fans dont need an excuse to try and wind opposing fans up. In fact if there is no needle at a match it makes it kind of boring. It is just not nice being on the recieving end for once. But there ya go.

    I'm just calling it as I see it too. Some people are just objective.


    On topic, fair play to Alex, sticking up for us and his old man. But Sunderland fans are entitled to wind us up anyway they want.

    You don't think it's possible that some people over-egg their objectivity? Often seems that way to me.

    People on here over egg everything. I take most things with a pinch of salt. I sometimes doubt people care about football when I log off. Objectivity is the least annoying thing on here.

    Nothing wrong with what he says. They might have done better with Bruce still there, who knows.

    Posters here are constantly calling Stoke, Bolton, West Ham, Chelsea, Liverpool, City fans scum. He has a small rant on twitter, a bit bitter, a bit tongue in cheek and he's a twat all of a sudden.

    No big deal this. No different than fans mocking other fans in the stadium.
