    While I don't trust your sentiment, Burton is a 6,900 stadium and they only received and allocation of around 1700 tickets. I bet the people of Burton are positively giddy that 3,300 Sunderland fans are going to wandering the streets for two hours.

    It's just a waiting game till we get to see the NUFC press statement thanking him for all his hard work and success during his tenure and wishing him all the best for the future. Expect it 13th May 2019.

    Basically management speak 101 to blame subordinates for failure because they didn't step-up to the challenge set out without getting anyone to agree to it before hand. If they don't hit the 20k they aren't true supporters and if they do then they are, although it has no impact to what the actual result will be. Idiots will lap this shit up. source - I've used this and seen it used as a motivational tool to make people work harder because it makes the individual feel as if they've let others down if they don't without any risk to me. It's pretty much a dick move.

    The argument that he'll be far from his family is a weak one. Without even looking at long term charters, putting on a private helicopter from Liverpool to London is only 10k a week return and less than two hours. The figures he'd move for would make this peanuts if it was a game changer.

    And a 'massive lads fan', totally loyal to them, who would love to leave a premiership team and move to a league one side who couldn't be sold and had to be given away in the end.

    RTG getting all worked up that West Ham need a manager and Spurs are potentially in the market for a new one so the job offers for Benitez will be plentiful for him to dump us with ease and ignoring that they are currently without any owner, transfer budget or a manager to spend whatever that would be when then window opens in two days. Idiots.

    So I've read on RTG. It's no surprise we're always 'fumin' and 'seething' when they make some witty comment about us. I mean, they thwarted all their made up crap our plans to gate crash their last game by buying up all the Wolves tickets and if they hadn't flown their own banner and 'controlled the airspace' who knows what we would have done. It wouldn't have been as clever as something they'd do though, what with them being every other teams special friends.

    Clearly all them since they're the most loyal supporters ever to stay away from a stadium.

    Wait.. we can be awarded a well done badge??

    Why do they hate Bain so much. I get the Short thing but Bain is just the money man who's been brought in to try and make the finances stable. It was never going to be good due to the shit they're in and until the annual results are published how successful he has been isn't known. Is it just a case of spoilt children having a tantrum because they can't have more sweets or has he done something else?

    They're more pissed off that 'massive lad fans' like themselves can't just go to the ticket office and even though they don't have a ticket history between them it doesn't seem to trigger how ironic their claims of being lifelong supporters and inability to buy tickets is.

    I have a couple of friends who are Makams who had planned to go to the Wolves game as they believe the club is set to implode over the summer and it might be their last chance to watch SAFC. They're pretty pissed with this since they can't get tickets.

    Isn't that one of the problems with Rodwell? He had the clause but they didn't envoke it. They could have others in the same position.

    I'm not sure that's right. IIRC the Championship cap is much lower and the losses they made in while in the Premiership exceeded that amount. I'm happy to be corrected on this.
