    This is all very scary. A proper plan a progressive structure professional recruitment. Worried I’ll wake up soon and Phil Parkinson will still be in charge

    As it says in my signature I think this could be a change that us supporters struggle to cope with.

    There won't be the opportunity to have pops at the owners nepotism or lack of professionalism ...


    ... some of the pro-pessimists might end up in therapy <laugh>

    This takeover seems to me that it's going to be a massive part of our history. I'm not bothered about the lads age at all. His family company, their history with football, their wealth, contacts in and out of football, drive to do things the right way with, all sound magnificent.

    Ha'way the takeover, ha'way the lads tomorrow and **** off covid ya bastard.

    I get the feeling some people are nit-picking without realising what's actually happening to our club ...

    ... it must be the pounding hangover of all the shyte years we've had and the way FPP were mugged off by Donald..

    I expect this will all take some time to sink in.

    Absolutely bang on mate <party>

    In our position this is an absolute gift from above ...

    ... anyone who doesn't get on board deserves to miss the bus.

    I'm already on the bus, upstairs at the front looking down that window thing at the drivers head! Fire up the engine and it's destination premier league.

    Well....

    My 10 year old has been to Wembley twice (in a matter of months), has been there for 2 relegations and one takeover so far....

    He's excited by it all....wish I could bottle it, seriously.

    Sunderland fans on the board, a manager with potential and a new owner who is worth quite a bit, in League 1.

    Here goes another Stella and Shloer for the boy. Get in!!!!!

    To summarize:

    New billionaire owner incoming
    Chief operating officer appointed, who happens to be a massive SAFC fan of over 35 years from a world renowned firm.
    Sporting director appointed a while ago who knows what he is doing and is up with the modern game.
    New head coach who is talking the talk and starting to turn the team around into a more attacking and entertaining outfit.

    The one thing they need is time to sort the 'on the pitch' stuff out but we have a **** load going for us off the pitch in terms of the academy and stadium.

    Come on lads. Can't wait to get back into the SoL.....and I'm in the family corner with a 9 year old! :1980_boogie_down::1980_boogie_down::1980_boogie_down:
