    It's Human nature Smug to tart things up a little to make things a bit more interesting, so I'd rather that than something bland.
    You've been in a sort of entertainment business for the last year or two.

    Time to leave Donald alone . He admits he got the football side wrong ( as have many others) He said at the start he didn't have the finances to get to the PL and new investors would be needed, and he would leave when told he was no longer wanted.
    Next chapter , new page and dreams start again ..always the way with Sunderland

    ... and also (I personally found this out today) has a Harvard MBA, so not just a rich kid with a wallet the size of Nepal and a bunch of yes-men round him (hopefully).

    See the yellow ticker didn't last long on sky. Ih well, I'm sure we'll get a mention if we start to climb the leagues.

    I have a long history of following stewards and police who are throwing one of our lads out and talking them out of it.

    I've got hold of lads refused entry for being drunk, slapped them around a bit, taken them for a walk and vouched I'd look after them to the stewards.

    All of them, like most of you lot, total strangers ...

    ... but, to me, you're all family and you look after family.

    So I've done my best to keep people optimistic and attack those who attack us.

    That may sound a little Old Testament but f**k it <laugh>

    From a personal point of view, I think I would like Bob Murray involved in some way. Not to say he would want to be involved but maybe someone who could just offer KLD a nod and a wink every now and again when it's required. The guy has serious experience in running the club as well as football contacts (not saying KLD hasn't but having as many as possible can't be a bad thing). But if he doesn't become involved, allow him to be visible and the run of the stadium as and when he wants. I think it could be a decent touch

    Same to you mate.

    I know you can't post a lot of what you hear but I've done my best to smuggle it on here without compromising you, and other people.
