    I sometimes wonder why the negative lot stay on this board. If they prefer negativity they should have BBC Question Time on a loop.

    Correct, he will make money when we are in the Premier League , he will sell his shares then.

    There's nothing wrong with negativity based on reality.

    However, I've noticed the realists don't based their version of 'reality' on real events ...

    ... they base it on wild guesswork and the mutual agreement of people who go along with them.

    He might have been involved daily for the first 18 months but he walked away last December and I doubt he’s set foot in Sunderland more than a couple of times in the last year.

    Surely if the set up is promising and
    That was before he stepped down, apparently not been seen at the AOL by employees since, so since then he hasn't had anything to do with the day to day running of the club and I wouldn't expect that to change after the takeover

    He was still operating on behalf of SAFC after he ‘resigned’. He was obviously quieter though.

    Everyone has their own opinions on Methven’s involvement so there’s probably no value in having the argument.

    He resigned from the board December 2019 - nearly a year ago.

    methven and Rodwell Will both remain at the club for now Rodwell will report to the new SPD
    Charlie methven will be left to the ticket and marketing side, Rodwell has been running the club the last few months with jones helping out,

    Rodwell will be on the more admin side

    Ah absolutely, I didn’t mean that is a argumentative way at all, just asking out of curiosity more than anything

    Could be registered offshore so it might not be accessible?

    Appears so. What we were talking about before. Both Sartori and KDF will be out of the country for the majority of the time. They both will have a role but not some all seeing ultimate voice of control. Structures will change and it will be for the better.

    Exactly, there's no proof he's been 'running the club' or will have any involvement in the future..
