Sunderland's push for automatic promotion from League One really imploded, and they ended up finishing fifth after dreams of a top two finish


Any summer transfer plans will be on the back burner until the play-offs are over, but one player is already being targeted for a big move away from the Stadium of Light.
The Sun claim that young left back Pye has attracted the interest of Manchester United, and they're now targeting a £500,000 deal this summer.
Add-ons would be worked into the deal, with Sunderland no doubt hoping for a huge sell-on clause and additional cash for appearances and international call-ups.
Pye is just 15, so is some way away from a first-team spot at the Stadium of Light, but he's earned major plaudits in their youth setup.
Sunderland have recently lost Luca Stephenson to Liverpool as well as Sam Greenwood to Arsenal, and now look set to lose another top young talent to a Premier League giant.

I toyed with answering this Silvers and commenting that I felt we were possibly doing ourselves a bad move selling kids who are our future as they help us avoid buying in ordinary players for big money. Unfortunately I am no up to date with the structure of how we can hang onto these kids once they come to the end of the various contract stages.  Pogba at ManU is a case in mind.

If all of the players mentioned above have been sold to help balance the books then it is a poor short-term move, but given the choice what would I do if I was that kid.  There are a good lot of ex ManU kids who succeeded elsewhere, and I cannot think of an SAFC junior who graduated like it.  It just irks me that we are becoming a bit of a timid organisation, but on the other hand something at the AoL must be going right.

I agree.
May even have been different if we were sitting comfortable in the Championship.
We supposedly dont have any debt  but apart from another .. and last... parachute payment we no longer have any significant income either.
So obviously we cant turn down significant fees.

On a positive, this would cover 8 of the 52 weeks per annum of Cattermoles 'alleged 60k' wages  Rolling Eyes

I have not commented before because rightly or wrongly I have no real interest in a 15 year old I have never heard of, just how it is.

That said I doubt if his sale has anything to do with money, we are fine financially from what I can see with a final parachute payment due of ..

A final parachute payment of £14.8m will be due in the 2019-20 season.


We are debt free and have a business plan based on attendances at home games of 28,000 so we are ahead there.


I would say the reason the lad is tempted to move is an easy one, first/championship Sunderland or Manchester United.


Right now my concern is Saturday, the first team squad and summer transfers.


Sorry, but can I confirm, I am not upset.
