    Things we'll hear little about tbh.

    Players contracts, agents fees, sponsorship deals, internal staffing expectations, merchandising, etc.

    I doubt there'll be any massive fees for ornamental plants, put it that way.

    My son and grandson are both supporters of Liverpool (sorry for my poor parenting skills), and both say he was the most, talented, naturally gifted player at the club at that time.
    However if he didn't feel one hundred percent fit he wouldn't play. Its a shame but he's not what we need, we've had our share of similar minded players in the past and I hope that we steer clear.

    Last nights win helps to hold back the madness.

    Crikey. I'm on my 11th month. Will be extended today but unsure if my company will do the same. Redundant at the end so still clinging on.

    My boy is 13 he’s been to many games with me but not a mad footy fan ( too clever to get hung up on whether we do ok or not ) his Mam is from Manchester and all his cousins and uncles are city fans. A few years back the missus took him to see his manc family and he comes back with a city top, scarf and bobble hat.

    it would’ve been easy for him to be a City fan but he’s 100% a Sunderland fan, he loves the fact we’ve struggled and not bought our way to success and I love that about him. Like me he loves the underdog it’s what makes any kind of success taste way way better.

    Got made redundant in October and been signing on since then - Thankfully in the process of starting my own business in April so all systems go - Getting good help from the Business innovation centre in Sunderland.

    Feeling positive in the first time in months.

    Good luck to you mate. Can be a challenge starting your own business but very satisfying at the same time.

    Good luck mate. I accepted a promotion on Monday. Bit of a step up and a change but feel the time is right.

    Always good to see the good news flowing.
