Based on what?

Don't know that much about him but he seemed to leave Bradford in a much better position than when he joined

Don't think it will be Phil Parkinson.
I just read the article below so it could well be they'll be going for Pep or Kloppy, pretty much as alluded to by Hit here and a few other posters a couple of weeks ago, along with winning the Premier League, Champions League etc etc.

If they've got so many mods across different time zones why can't they merge a thread?

Amazing that anyone saying anything off agenda is called a Mag and instantly banned. However their members can be openly racist, argue in defence of peadophiles, and one even admitted to killing animals, yet they never get a ban.

There was a good poster from Teeside called JohnnyM1 who got banned because he insisted Sunderland were their derby rivals. His threads weren't abusive but didn't tow the 'agreed' truths. Another lad from America got banned for being too intelligent and some didn't understand his points of disagreement correctly and he was reported and banned... fukin sensitive lot imo  :blush:

The Don taking a lot of flak and crying off Twitter. Sad that they’re turning on their own when there’s so many genuine enemies of the people out there.

Likewise RTG, very angry. He is appointing a new manager who meets their criteria and still locals are fewming.

It's enjoyable the way it's going, when only 2 weeks ago they thought they were going to take over the world. If these don't go up they are in big big trouble.

Is this not the Dons planned early season social media holiday? Seem to remember he also had a social media holiday at the end of last season.

To be fair to him he plans them well for when things look like they might be a bit stressful

That’s been his plan all along, to flip over and make lots of money out of his stake which cost him pennies in reality.

The bad thing for Sunderland is if he doesn’t, they are left with an owner who doesn’t have a pot to p*ss in and who will continue to take out for himself and his buddies first more than he’s put in over and above what’s the club’s to spend on strengthening the business to be capable of at least achieving success.

He/they are no different to Ashley really. I’m sure, however, he has some good or true intentions to get as good a deal for the club as he can himself. But for how long...

Because he has no money, he needs others’ money to fund the club and they need that money even more. If he doesn’t find a good deal for the club, how desperate will he become where any deal is better than no deal and how soon will it be all about his end and to hell with anything else?

The irony is that Sunderland had an owner in Short who valued the club more than his own money, his return wasn’t profit or selling it on, it was owning an asset that was a successful Sunderland, a more successful club than everyone was used to before anyway. His mistake was his money was wasted away on hiring poor managers, buying expensive players on big wages who weren’t good enough and once the money was gone, he was left with an asset that wasn’t worth keeping even if he put more and more in to get the club back into the PL.

Simply put, even as a Premier League club, as far as owning such an asset, Sunderland, wasn’t worth owning full stop and I personally believe no amount of money or success will ever make them a valuable asset as a business, as an investment, as a brand, as a commercial commodity and that’s more because clubs like Sunderland and indeed our own can only ever be an asset to their city or town and it’s people.

Our clubs are worth it to us and that’s why when the s*** hits the fan, we are the ones left to keep investing our money in because for us, the asset is in having a football club of our own to support, cheer, watch and that’s what’s valuable about our clubs, not prizes, star names, trophies, the Premier League, sponsorship deals, tv money, Nike or Adidas.


Short cut his losses and fans should be grateful he was willing to do that, but even then such a gesture I guarantee isn’t as altruistic and as benevolent as it seems. Whatever his terms of sale was, the club at some point in one way or another, one money to him. Just not every penny, not at an interest, not at once, not tomorrow.

I’d wager there will be a lot of hidden things in their books somewhere, things that prospective new owners will find, look at, think hold on, and say sorry, we can’t do a deal. Same at Newcastle and for me, I’d worry more about the successful bidder and new owner than those that looked and walked away.

Your club may end up with  Stewart Donald or a Peter Kenyon.

We of course ended up with Ashley who for all his faults and mistakes we’d have been better of mortgaged up under Freddy Shepherd for 20 years.

Or maybe people like them should just f*** off and not get involved in our clubs in the first place, who exactly asked them to come along and bring their money with them anyway?

I f***ing didn’t! How dare they hold us and our clubs to ransom over money which we freely give to our clubs out of charity no looking for a return or to be rewarded. The reward is our money is for a good cause, our team, our club, our city and town.

We own our clubs, they just rent from us.

Kick them all out, accept no takeover, new owner or investment. Get your money out, pack your bags, and f*** off, we will manage just fine on our own thank you just as before, as we always have and always will. Something that can’t be said the same of them who without us...
