Most of us can remember when we had some claim to being the hot bed of football here in the north east but those days seem long gone.

Our most successful team right now are our friends from the north, Newcastle.
A team with a massive fan base and potential but a club that has been on the market for 8 years and still cant find a buyer, well they did but their dodgy dealings did for them.

To the south we have the Boro boy's who avoided relegation by the skin of their false teeth and avoiding relegation seems to be the main target these days.

Hartlepool, Darlington and Carlise are hardy worth a mention so I will say no more.

Then we have us, the mighty Sunderland with our disastrous recent past and even bleaker looking future. 

Whatever you think of us or our neighbours one thing is for sure, the loyal fans who support each club through thick and thin, more thin than thick, none of us deserve the kickings we receive on a regular basis.

Some say its because we cant attract the players, their wives wont come, rubbish.
We have The Cleveland Centre, Eldon Square and The Bridges.

Maybe they have a point.

Football will have to change to cope with the new world post-Covid. A new funding model is needed, with the greed of the Premier League moderated and their largesse shared (imo) but will that happen? Some clubs will go to the wall as we have already seen as they do not have a sustainable income stream. I don't believe Sunderland will be one of these but our supporters will need to fight and make sure that our club survives.

I wouldn't be concerned about not getting to games, the way the pandemic is rising I have a feeling none of us will be there in September.

There is a Roy Keane item on youtube when he talks about signing a player called Matty Taylor from Portsmouth. He walked him back to his car after the interview, Taylor said he'd let Keane know about coming to Sunderland as he had also been approached by Bolton. Taylor walked in front of Keane to his car and Keane's phone rang, it was a text from Taylor who was not yet in his car. The text said "I've decided to go  to Bolton". 
Perhaps he was afraid of Keane?????  or his wife didn't fancy the Sunderland High Street. What do you think?
