‘Different sauce’, ‘Red and white Iniesta’ – Many Sunderland fans praise player after Ipswich draw
Sunderland extended their Ligue 1 unbeaten track to seven appearances on Saturday afternoon as they played a 1-1 draw against Ipswich Town at Portman Road.
The two teams met for the second time in a month, with the second leg coming in November on Wearside.
That day, the Black Cats won 2-0 over the Tractor Boys, who were then led by Paul Cook, but that was not the case this time around.
Interim manager John McGreal was in charge of his last game before Kieran McKenna took over and it was his side who took the lead just before half-time thanks to James Norwood.
But Everton player Nathan Broadhead was the man who equalized in the second half for the visitors, meaning they came away north with a point to increase their chances of promotion.
The man who played the ball all the way to Broadhead was young Dan Neil, who is certainly having a stellar season at his childhood club.
He beefed up Lee Evans in the middle of the park before slicing through Ipswich’s defense with a pass to place Broadhead, and it was just the latest in a long string of special things he’s done this season and rightly so. headline, Sunderland fans have praised him on social media.
How good is Dan Neil? Amazing player

Nutmeg, the transverse ball. Dan Neil man, unreal. If we want to have a chance to keep him beyond this season, we have to get out of this division. #safc

Dan Neil will play in the Prem one day, probably not for Sunderland.
