It’s relegation NOT the last rites !!

It’s relegation NOT the last rites !!

Post  Argus on 2018-04-22, 10:26 am

Well at least the uncertainty of recent months is over and we now know for certain that we will be playing in the 3rd tier of English football next season.

No point looking back for excuses, there are too many to mention and anyway it serves no purpose other than to feed the anger/disappointment most of us are feeling today.

I can only hope that over the coming weeks Ellis Short will find a way to relinquish his involvement in our wonderful club and give the new owners a fair crack of the whip in preparing for next season.

I know it’s not going to be easy in the unfamiliar surroundings of Division One and I know we will be the team everyone wants to beat, but I see no reason why we can’t set our sights on achieving a top 6 spot, which in itself would maintain fans interest right up to the end.

Our club has a history going back over 138 years so let’s not get too upset that in future the records may show that two of those were spent outside the top 2 divisions of English football.

I know it’s probably little consolation but I’d just like let you know of the many posts about your relegation on a Man City forum I sometimes go on.  All of them are sad and very complimentary about Sunderland fans and Mackems in general.

You’ve got a lot of admirers out there because of your friendliness and the way you behave in general.  It’s the fans that make the club and you’ve got one to be proud of!!!

Hope you bounce back soon and even start being our ‘bogey team’ again. Wink

No surprise to see you hit the nail firmly on the head Argus.

My mate Ash who travels on the bus with me and goes to all home, away and reserve games will be in London on Friday evening getting home at some ungodly hour, he does not drive but will be there. An absolute legend in my eyes.

Very well written, although I'm sorry to read of all the continued anti-Short & blaming him of SAFC's demise.

The problems run right though the majority of the club, which for season after season has turned a blind eye to them unless they become public & so the instigators of them, because to challenge them, would bring about their own financial demise remain largely ignored.

from what I've heard I truly believe Coleman has the morality to inspire a culture from the bottom up based on the regions history & values to make the SoL become a challenging environment to visit once again. I just hope that any new owners can share in it.
