Well done Martin Bain

Post  cyprussyd on 2017-11-21, 7:27 am

I do think that Chris Coleman coming here will remind people that we are a massive club, we have been for a long time and we will be back
MARTIN BAIN, CEO, SUNDERLAND AFC





Chief executive Martin Bain was delighted to secure his clear first choice for the managerial vacancy at the Stadium of Light.
Chris Coleman took the reins on Sunday, penning a two-and-a-half-year deal on Wearside following a successful six-year tenure in charge of the Welsh national team.
Following the departure of Simon Grayson, Sunderland’s CEO led an in-depth search for a new boss, with all signs soon pointing to one man.
“From the beginning of the process, you need to look at a club’s DNA and also recognise that football is a business which changes from week to week," Bain said.
“I didn’t just sit down on my own; I spoke to various people within the club, and one or two outside on a confidential basis, to build up a profile of the person we were looking for.
“Out of that process, the number one choice was Chris Coleman and it always was, though I kept that close to my chest. I felt throughout that he would be perfect for us.
“That’s in terms of an impact now, but also the ability to lead and build. That’s hard to find and Chris has it in abundance.
“No job offers were made to anyone but Chris Coleman.”
Throughout the search for a new boss, Bain was aware of the external clamour for information as a whole host of names were linked with the position.
His intentions – the appointment of Coleman – were well disguised all along, with rumours surrounding the Welshman not picking up traction until late in the process.
“I’ve been in the game long enough to know that there's been a lot of noise out there in terms of whether Sunderland know what they’re doing,” he explained.
“We had all sorts of people linked with the job, and people throwing their name in the hat as if they’d spoken to me in the first place.
“You just have to ignore the noise and keep focused on the job.
“You’re never going to win any popularity contests when you’re the chief executive.
“My pressure wasn’t personal; it was that all the people here and the supporters of the football club needed to see that this club still has the ability to attract good people - and it does.”
Alongside Coleman’s appointment, Kit Symons has taken on the role of assistant manager having been a long-time lieutenant of the former Fulham defender.
Now attention turns to the future, with a message having been duly sent about Sunderland’s continuing status as one of the big clubs in the English game.
“Chris Coleman coming here emphasises what this football club stands for - its stature, tradition and fanbase.
“Chris has done fantastic work and that’s the side people will see. Another massive side to Chris is that he is a highly skilled practitioner in terms of knowledge of football at the highest level.
“Ultimately it’s about what Chris does with the team and in the dressing room, and the impact he has there is also impressive.
“It’s sometimes overlooked but Kit is a very experienced guy, and the fact we’re bringing two highly experienced people into the building in a partnership is a big box ticked for me.
“I do think that Chris Coleman coming here will remind people that we are a massive club, we have been for a long time and we will be back.”

The Bane of our club.. getting Coleman in as manager imho is good news.

What his boss Short needs to hear however is that at least 4 quality players are required. Then I might admit the 'man who is watering the workers beer' is in it for the club not himself

I was on about what you cut & pasted.
Shite talk, we've heard it all before. Many, many times.
You're right about the last bit like.
No I wont see it. At least not in the flesh.
I know a few lads round my way, both Sunderland & Newcastle fans who are now watching teams like Gateshead, Durham, South Shields, Dunston etc.
And do you know why? Because they f*cking sick of it. Being taken for cunts by millionaires who don't give a f*ck.
Personally, I'd rather go down the local pitch on a Sunday morning & watch the pub teams play.
Them lads play for f*ck all but at least they put some effort in even if they are still pissed off the night before.

Ellis Short: I wanted David Moyes the last FIVE times I've looked for new manager

ROSS GREGORY


Published: 10:13Saturday 23 July 2016


Ellis Short has revealed he has finally got his man in David Moyes - at the SIXTH time of asking.


Sunderland owner Short revealed he had targeted Moyes for the Sunderland manager's job for the last five years.

The Texan claimed he wanted Moyes ever since Steve Bruce departed in 2011, but instead had to settle for Martin O'Neill, Paolo Di Canio, Gus Poyet, Dick Advocaat and Sam Allardyce as the Scot was unavailable due to his contracts at other clubs.

And he says he is delighted to have finally landed Moyes as Allardyce's successor on a four-year contract.

Short said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome David Moyes to Sunderland, who was by far and away our first choice.
“He is a man whose football pedigree speaks for itself and is someone I have long admired. I have spoken with him on many occasions and I have always been hugely impressed.
"He was my number one managerial target for the last five appointments, but his desire to honour existing contracts meant we were not able to bring him to Sunderland previously.
"To be able to finally welcome him as our manager is fantastic news for the club.


“The fact that David has committed to a four-year deal is a clear demonstration of his belief in what he can achieve here.
"It is our aim to become a better, stronger and more stable football club and with a manager of David’s calibre and experience at the helm, we have a fantastic opportunity to begin looking upwards, rather than downwards every season”.

Given Moyes' reputation for building a team and saving a club we would have been in a queue of many other.  All credit to ES for trying to prise him away from Everton.

It seems that giving any credit to Short or Bains is a criminal offence.

Not at all, it's just that even with some on here's fading memory they can still google the odd quote to refresh weary minds.

Ps. I'm right up there in hoping Bain has got it right this time even if you might have cause to think I don't.
