A consortium led by Sunderland fans have pulled out of a bid to take over the club.


A statement released by Leo Pearlman, Gabe Turner and Ben Turner, who own production company Fulwell73, confirmed their 'dream' to be involved in the ownership of the Black Cats.

Fulwell73





The trio of TV executives were leading a consortium interested in buying out Ellis Short, but their withdrawal because of other commitments now leaves the door open for a German group to try and clinch a deal with the Sunderland owner.

Who are Fulwell73? All you need to know about TV executives interested in Sunderland takeover

The statement said: “As life-long Sunderland supporters, it would be the fulfillment of a dream to be involved in the ownership of the club, to put it back into the hands of the fans and to give the whole of Wearside a team to be proud of.
"Our club is the biggest in the North East, should be one of the biggest in the country and the Premier League is therefore the only place it belongs.
"We have been so touched and inspired by the reaction from our fellow supporters, who rightly deserve their reputation as the best fans in the world.
"However, due to our other TV and film commitments, now isn't the right time for us to get involved.


"It's where our hearts are and would demand a huge personal commitment, and we wouldn't want to give anything less than our all to the club. We owe that to all the other fans for whom, like us, SAFC is such an integral part of their histories and future.
"Whether it is Mr Short who remains in control or new owners who come in, we will always support the lads and offer any assistance, at any level, in helping to re-establish this great club at the level it deserves to be.‎”

I guess a bit of free publicity would not have hurt them, although I think they probably were serious but valued the club much lower than Ellis Short so their talks went nowhere. Maybe in the future when they are all billionaires and ready to retire we will see them make another bid. Watch this space in 15-20 years! Very Happy

That's exactly what I thought.

If they were too busy, why on earth did they get involved and if they didn't express an interest, why didn't they nip the speculation in the bud?

I think we may have dodged a bullet there.

Pillocks!

Personally I'm happy they've pulled out.

Pulling out is quite dodgy, much safer to use a condom! Very Happy

Heard it on the radio earlier. Another glimmer of hope gone. Hopefully theGermans will come up trumps and have plenty of money. My only slight concern with the 73 bid was whether they could generate enough money.I don't know anything about their finances but I can't think of a true fan takeover that's managed to be competitive at the top level. Delia had a good stab.

Dodged a bullet there

ALAN PARDEW is the shock name in line to be named as Sunderland boss if Tony Adams’ consortium seize control of the club.
