Nowt as funny as folk

Nowt as funny as folk

Post  cyprussyd on 2018-05-02, 8:00 am

Keeping to my usual stir it up post I have sat back a little and read with wonder comments about our club, manager situation and change of ownership.

For a few seasons now the repeated call has been Short out and stability all overshadowed by clear out the players who have let us down.

Well its looking like we are about to get all those wishes come true! Barring an absolute cock up we have new owners, forget Mr Gray and his opinion we all know Sunderland and there is no way they would be making statements about change of owner unless 99.99% certain it's taking place.

I like most was shocked to see Coleman go but in the cold light of day Vinkle was right, he did massively under achieve and maybe new owners bringing in their man will indeed bring stability.

That leaves us with the players, Oviedo has already said he does not want to play division 1 football so that's one away and I suspect he is the first of many and with loan players going home and players coming to the end of their contracts we may not have that many to shift.

Suspicion and spectercisim go hand in hand with being a Sunderland fan but come on people, rather than look for reasons to worry why not just rejoice in wishes coming true and judge the future when the future has become the past, deeds and actions rather than doom and doubt.

My unsurprising opinion is that every Sunderland fan who can get to Sundays game should be there, not to applaud the team if they dare do a lap of honour but to welcome the new owners, wave of the players who have let us down and importantly show other players like Asoro that we are worth staying and fighting for.

I very much doubt that many who have stopped going will be there and that for me is very sad.

But to all who will be there, see you on Sunday LesMack

But for a prior arrangement i would have been to the game, as i said earlier just to celebrate the change. Alas can't be. But i will be returning next season, not as a sc holder, dont do night games, but most Saturday games i expect.
Ps we sunderland supporters always seem to be waiting for something or other.

No but I am very much in the new owner mould and whoever he appoints will get my full backing, not 99.9% but 100%.

I doubt it will be Coleman but if it is I will back him and TBH won't be disappointed. He did underachieve but I also liked the man and he would be judged by me on the future not the past.

I have £230 riding on the next managerial appointment, if it's Coleman the money stays in my pocket. This would be a massive backward step. And if anyone  thinks otherwise they know sweet fa about our club.

His result record is not good but some of the performances did not deserve the resulting losses.  As said, if he is appointed we can run with it based on results in the new season, but they have to be good otherwise he will be turned on.  His acquisitions will also be a big factor along with hanging onto our current crop of seasoned and emerging youngsters.

Well I guess that's me told but I will take comfort from the fact I know betting on these things is a mugs game so it's a case of do I want to be an ignorant fool or a clever mug.

This ignorant fool does know that in my years of being a Sunderland fan I learnt one thing early on, "Fans all have opinions and they never all agree, it neither makes them fools or mugs, just fans with opinions".

I would gently point out Vinkle that you made your views on Coleman clear well before a ball was kicked and came over as a fan who was just waiting for him to fail, neither balanced or fair IMO.

I was spitting fèathers when i heard the Coleman report of his possible return, but no i never was waiting for him to fail. I have learned to wait before making judgement on anything sunderland. I may have been a tad over the top with my last remark, but my blood was still boiling at the thought of Coleman coming back, as his time here was abysmal. A while back you asked if those who had said they would not return untill Short was gone, would they now come back.
Well the £230 I mentioned was for a season card and not a bet, and i will get a season card, but only if it's not Coleman.
Ps i have even chosen a seat.

Responded re coalman in another post. Sd did say there would be several managers in their thoughts ahead of the coalman. My thought was they were just being polite about the question.they didn't raise the thought of bringing him back. It was put as a question to them.
