31st July will be our 8th birthday and a good time to draw the forum to an end.

Its been an up and down 8 years but we have never quite moved into full flow with a few posters trying to keep things going. Views per topic show that there is lots of interest in the subjects we cover but sadly those views have never brought comments and in the end defeat needs to be accepted.

Slowly regular posters have stopped posting, new members come and quickly go so my days of trying are over.

On the 31st and with a heavy heart the forum will be deleted along with all records and posts.


Thank you to everyone who contributed and stay safe.

A few of us post on the 'NOT606' forum (Sunderland section, obviously), Sid (Vince, RAW, Gil, Syd very occasionally, and me . . . . sorry if I missed anyone), where I'm sure you'd be welcome (as would nearly everybody from here) Wink

There's a 'City section, too, but it's rarely used.

That’s very kind of you to think of me Gordon.  Unfortunately we don’t get much news of Sunderland in the North West so it will be a good way for me to keep my beady eye on you.  Razz

I do sometimes go on a City forum called Bluemoon so I won’t go on the City section 606 as I’ll only get confused. Neutral

Very sad, visit the site nearly every day, even if no time to comment.

I consider you all a great bunch of characters with Sunderland in your hearts, it has been a pleasure to chat and on occasion meet up with you. I would hope that some form of contact could be maintained and would look forward to meeting you all again.

Take good care of yourselves love sunderland

Let me kill this off now, first of all people say they dont have the time to post so cant see how anyone will have time to run the forum.

I built the forum 8 years ago and dont want to close it but close it will. Its a forum for Sunderland fans and take a look at the first 10 posts, lots of interest it would seem looking at the views per topic and maybe 3 or 4 interested enough to comment, nothing new but very frustrating.

If anyone wants to start a new forum great, I will join it but SunderMad is closing.

Sorry.

BTW  number of us will continue to talk on Facebook.

Sorry to hear the forum is closing but I fully understand the reasoning behind the decision. Unfortunately I've probably been as guilty as many - making very regular visits to see what's going on, but not posting very often and the pandemic has brought new concerns which have pushed footy into the background for the past 4-5 months.

So thanks to Syd and all for your efforts over the past 8 years and rest assured it has been appreciated even though it's covered the most turbulent period in the history of our beloved SAFC.

After 606 and Not606 this was a bit of welcome relief - like popping into my favourite pub, knowing there will always be some familiar faces - but I now have 2 options (i) find a new drinking hole which will unquestionably be a massive culture shock or (ii) give up drinking!!

Thanks and best wishes to you and yours.

I am interested to know. Would the fans get behind a football based consortium with a long term plan without false promises and have the patience to see it through- or allow the current / recent chairman to sell control to another prospective failure from SAmerica because he doesn’t have the balls to wait a few weeks for cash offer that would actually benefit the club as well as himself. As that is what “could” happen this week... potentially... probably

You will ALWAYS have my most grateful appreciation & thanks for bringing so many good people together which has allowed me to interact with not just the lovers of football at SAFC but about lifes many trials & tribulations. Best wishes & keep yourself safe, BCK.

Sad news this.  I’ve been a regular on the smb and not 606 and find this site one of the most knowledgeable and respectful going.

No doubt the lack of anything really happening during the covid lockdown, will have affected people posting more regularly.

I want to thank those who created the site and others who I’ve enjoyed immensely conversing with during the excellent match day threads and in general threads the rest of the time.

If anything does happen to keep this site going, I’m registered on the smb under the name GHFD

Just pm on there.

Goodbye all, it’s been fun and a pleasure to read
