Well we’ve been saying it since “The Don” bought* the club. It was fairly obvious to everyone he was a snake oil salesman. 

He came from Eastleigh FC for fucks sale and half of the players will have more money than him. He got the fans to replace their own seats for fucks sake and the idiots lapped it up. 

We’ve experienced the friendly owner having a pint with the fans and he turned out to be a total dickhead. It takes professionals to run a football club not pissheads.

Obviously I have absolutely zero sympathy for them, although perhaps I’m feeling a healthy amount of schadenfreude.

They’ve been full of themselves all season.

Even if they go up they’ll be bummed senseless in the championship and in all seriousness league one might be more their level at the minute.

Well yeah. Their trajectory is taking them to league 2. :D

 

It's inteteresting in that thread some at least are waking up to the fact that "Charlie" being a PR man isn't necessarily a good thing. He's fast becoming a tory cunt now the honeymoon is over. Eventually when even the more gullible mackems realise they have been played, it will turn toxic in the way only mackems know how to do. Then the club is completely fucked. Can't wait. :icon_lol:

This is the worst season in their entire history and they’re sat that there trying to argue it’s been successful.

:lol:

The new manager thread on RTG is delightful. Answers range from people I’ve never heard of to Kevin Phillips to getting Brewecy back. Quite why he’d drop from Sheffield Wednesday is not explained.

 

To top it all off, they’re getting nostalgic about Allardyce again, who won about 8 games. “Seems like years ago” said one mackem, who is apparently wistful about surviving their third consecutive relegation battle.

Their love for that fat tramp Allerdyce really does mark them out as special fans. I mean, with the possible understandable exception of Bolton, he's been reviled everywhere he has been. But solely because "he relegated us" (I know) they treat him like some demi-God. Bizarre behaviour, they have gotten exactly what they deserve.

Best thing about this is that apparently Fleetwood play the Captain Pugwash theme when they score.  The shame of getting beat with that fucking tune blasting out :lol:

 

 

That's it, then. That's it for me. I thought it was canny funny them getting beat by Fleetwood and confirming their non automatic promotion but knowing the goals went in to the Captain Pugwash song is probably my highlight to their season so far, maybe even better than losing a penalty shootout at Wembley. :spit:

they are fucked. they’ll have no cash to get out of league one, if they don’t get out via the playoffs this year .. crunch time for them imo. Either get out via playoffs and try stay up next season or I reckon they’ll fall back to a mid table league one team for a couple of years

:lol: They really are a gift. No matter how miserable our situation is with Ashley as owner and Rafa probably leaving, they’re getting beaten by Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town to the sweet sounds of captain pug wash.

I mean, think how lucky we are for this Netflix documentary :lol:

 

Any other football team supporters in the land, if they were given the chance to watch behind the scenes coverage of the misery of a second consecutive relegation for their rival club, followed by an abject humbling in League One, they'd think all their Christmases had come at once :D

 

The fact that it's bought and paid for by Sunderland fans is just.. all the more incredible. "We'll pay for you to watch us burn". The darkest days in the history of their club, broadcast to the world.

 

Amazing.

Netflix will be lapping this up. The poverty porn version of a football documentary. The worse a season they have, the better telly it makes

Nah. Poverty porn shows at least tend to have a few likeable characters in them.

The film crew and production company are all MLFs aren't they? Didn't stop them getting assaulted at Bristanbul mind. Tbh I got the feeling they censored some of the worst bits last time. Where was the bit about the seat shitter for instance? :D

It was one of the most bizarre things about the whole takeover! Why they were happy the club was employing someone to literally bend the truth to them. Insane delusion.
