    Given this thread alone then I can see that KLD doesn't actually need to do anything to whip up supporter enthusiasm!

    As I see it if he shows too much enthusiasm then he makes our recruitment that bit more expensive, so I'd be happy if he left it to team's results to whip up the supporters and stayed in the background - always visible and always a symbol of good ownership.

    It is going to be interesting to compare progress here at SAFC with that at Wrexham, where the ownership is more celebrity up front (they've already pulled off a coup by announcing that they will be making up the loss of wages of furloughed staff so upping and backdating payment from 80% to the full 100%)

    There is loads to read on various forums, sports and news sites about KLD, but few of us have heard him speak, know his real intentions, or let alone heard him talk about Sunderland.

    He'll get 1 chance to make a first impression, I get the feeling he's making sure it will be a good one, hence taking this time with the announcement and getting everything lined up.

    I suspect he wants to be able to make the announcement and also provide details about how the club will be run, and hopefully some aspirations for the future. If he's done his research (and there are indications he has), then he'll have seen how the early press conferences and podcasts were thrown back at SD and CM as evidence that they were lying to us. He'll want to avoid that at all costs if he sees this as a long term project rather than a flip and make profit.

    I'm quietly excited by the whole thing

    This! It's been well over 18 months now that we've been involved in constant takeover speculation in one form or another.
    This needs to get announced without further delay. As fans,we've been through the wringer enough.....time for people to recognise that and do the decent thing.

    I don't want to see keepy-ups...I just want myself,and every other loyal fan,to be treated fairly. It's weeks and weeks now this has gone on and,frankly,I'm sick of getting the mushroom treatment.

    A strict regime of nightly drinking is vital training for the day of the big announcement ...

    ... it was all just a front for Big Will Storey
