    "How do the books look?"

    I’m sure a few weeks back someone had worked out that if you’ve read every post on this thread it’s the equivalent of reading War & Peace 3 times. Mind it was a few weeks ago so it might be 4 times now <laugh>

    This takeover is the only Sunderland related thing I can follow given the recent Covid outbreak within the squad.

    I dare not look at the table when we return to football after Boxing Day too...

    A few of the teams above us are playing each other over Xmas and hull will miss the game against us so it might not be as bad as it could’ve been.

    Does anyone actually use their seat in the SW corner?

    SD and Co have shown their hand with regards to the ‘takeover’

    KLD holds all the cards now. He can come in again and offer less money and ask for more % and it will be a much different deal to what was reported in the press 3 weeks ago

    If SD decides against the ‘new’ deal, then he’s got very few options left to turn, and will have to take the EFL loan to continue to run the club. This comes with its own ramifications, and will have any other consortiums, if actually interested, run a mile as a result

    Obviously the EFL loan won’t be enough if we are truly losing £1m a month, so this then opens the door for FPP to take the clubs assets if the £11.5m loan can’t be Paid back

    Which ever way you look at it, SD has backed himself into a corner. He can accept something now off KLD and at least gets something, or try and soldier on and end up with next to nothing when FPP take over

    It’s nearing GAME OVER ‍♂️ and good news for us fans

    RAWA tweeting asking for answers regarding the potential loan may shine some light on what’s happening happening but I doubt they’ll get an answer

    I used to think that this was a bit of a conspiracy theory, but after what's happened over the last three seasons, I'm not so sure anymore.

    this has been my thoughts all year...that SD is trying to play 'big business man' but is playing with far bigger men now while trying to get more than his worth out of the club, these men can (and will) crush him if needs be.

    will say again, take what you have been offered SD or you could end with nowt...these 'players' are more than happy to give a fair price but they are also happy to sit and play the long game as you lose more and more if you try to be a dick.

    I wouldn’t wish Covid on anyone but......if more teams cancel games over the Xmas period and we stay in touching distance maybe we can put a run together in January before it gets to a ppg situation.

    I know, we’re Sunderland it won’t be that simple.
