Sunderland fans have wasted little time ridiculing Blackburn for signing the former Black Cats midfielder Jack Rodwell.
Rodwell concluded his contract with Sunderland earlier this summer and he joined Tony Mowbray in a one-year deal.
The former English international spent four years at the Stadium of Light, but made only three senior appearances in the final term.
Manchester City's former midfielder also earned £ 70,000 a week, at a time when Sunderland was in financial trouble.
Ex-Sunderland manager Chris Coleman publicly questioned Rodwell's attitude and desire when the club wanted to help him.
Rodwell claimed he just wanted to play football, but Coleman said he was reluctant to move – despite being banned to the young people under the age of 23.
His regret on Wearside came to an end this summer and he has been labeled by many as the worst signing in the history of Sunderland.
After a spell training with Premier League Watford, Rodwell now has a deal with Championship side Blackburn Rovers.
Blackburn fans seem very happy with the deal, but Sunderland fans were quick to report their midfielder experience.
Phil Jeffries tweeted: "The worst piece of transfer activities that Sunderland did, FEEL SORRY FOR BLACKBURN!"
Smoker Report added: "Must laugh at the Blackburn fans in the answers here trying to see the positive points with this. Sorry guys, but they are not there. & # 39;
Steven Lorraine continued: "Blackburn signs Rodwell – I do not think a healthy Blackburn fan can be happy about that."
But Adam Royal wished Rodwell well: "Crazy but fair game for the boy that he had a sensible conversation with the Don and left.
"There will be hostility from Sunderland fans that is understandable, but we have moved on to the new regime, and I hope Jack Rodwell is the person he finds."
