Sunderland staff are braced for a major jobs cull, with new owners promising to cut back on the club’s running costs in League One.
Incoming chairman Stewart Donald will take over the day-to-day running of the business and will make his first task trimming an annual wage bill of £35million which has contributed to losses of around £500,000 per week.
There will be redundancies throughout the club and non-playing staff fully expect their departments to be scaled back.

A group led by Stewart Donald, chairman of Eastleigh, are set to takeover at Sunderland



Current chief executive Martin Bain laid off around 40 employees last year.
There are also fears that the club will lose their category one academy status as every avenue is explored to absorb the financial impact of back-to-back relegations.
Sources close to Chris Coleman have told Sportsmail he was taken completely by surprise when Bain delivered the news of his sacking and the takeover on Sunday morning. 
The 47-year-old wanted to remain in charge next season and is disappointed he has not been able to present his case to the new owners.

Sunderland owner Ellis Short sacked Chris Coleman and announced the club's sale on Sunday
Former Sunderland boss Mick McCarthy was spotted in the city on Monday, but sources insist he was there on personal business.
Meanwhile, Islam Slimani will have cost Newcastle £2.5m for every 90 minutes played, with a retrospective ban set to end the loanee’s season. He was charged by the FA with violent conduct for kicking West Brom’s Craig Dawson on Monday night.
Slimani joined from Leicester for a £2m loan fee, plus coverage of his £80,000-per-week wages.

Unfortunately it will be the genuine workforce trying to make a living to have a mortgage and a night out now and then. Not the millionaire w*nk footballers who took us down.

Yes indeed, catering staff, ground staff, cleaners, shop & ticket office staff.
No doubt there will be a big reduction in the amount of burger vans.
Local pubs will lose business on match days.
Like you say, it will be the ordinary people who will be affected whether directly employed by the club or not but rely on match day income.

All reduced last season and concourse outlets reduced

Very few burger vanx left

Local pubs will lose business on match days.
The crowds outside pubs on way to ground none exsistant

Like you say, it will be the ordinary people who will be affected whether directly employed by the club or not but rely on match day income.

Yes indeed & may well be cut back even further as crowds drop by another 10,000.

If we perform well and win matches do you think crowds will drop by that much? Think I might be going more.

Well we have been hitting around 20,000 not the 26000 published and we have sold 16000 season tickets so that's only a 4000 drop. Like you kipper I expect us to start winning games and that alone will bring the crowds back.
