    The fact KLD has already gave an interview in France saying he has bought Sunderland is enough for me and should be for anyone

    Thanks for the snippet. When you say he's not a fan of the current owners I assume that excludes Sartori? Or do you think he'll eventually leave too?

    Maybe mate. He's definitely been an arsehole recently 100%. Personally, I think he's always been that. I think he knew what we needed to hear and, ironically, he was just better at it than Mr PR Methven. Honestly , @Magnus and @Prehab26 have likely heard about Donald in the KLD discussions. I'd love to hear their thoughts on it. Put it this way, I couldn't have a worse opinion of Donald, and I try to be balanced

    As much as I would like to think so, EFL checks are only one of the final steps. Many things can change thereafter. Really don’t trust SD at this stage.

    Sartori probably fine. Maybe Methven too tbh. Donald is a different matter

    Donald's been done a long time. Think I said on this forum when I first joined, he wouldn't be involved on a serious basis. The new ownership wants nothing to do with Donald. Absolutely nothing.

    Bit concerning Methven probably ok but if he's kept at arms length with little input then maybe tolerable.

    You're talking **** now mate. It is a done deal and I linked the club statement to prove it. Not sure what you get out of being a troll about it.

    hope it is mate, really do, I’m just concerned from the second hand snippets I hear about SD and his running and managing of things. Also the players not being offered contracts and they are now available to sign contracts with other clubs doesn’t sit right with me. Fingers crossed it’s announced soon mate.

    Do you think we'll have confirmation of the takeover within the next week?

    Not talking ****, at all... not a troll. just what I hear... show me where it says it is complete. That’s my concern. Even if it passes EFL checks it’s still in that chancers hands.

    You are talking **** though, no need to be coy. https://www.safc.com/news/club-news/2020/december/club-statement-kyril-louis-dreyfus

    Sunderland AFC can announce that an agreement has been reached for Kyril Louis-Dreyfus to acquire Stewart Donald’s controlling interest in the club. If approved by the EFL, the deal will see Louis-Dreyfus become chairman at the Wearside club early in the New Year.

    Ok, hope you’re right. Not trusting anything I hear until it’s on safc.com.
