Nexit is to blame

For the last five seasons, around this time of the year, the long suffering supporters of SAFC have read the same statements from various managers and players: “Don’t panic , we can turn these results round”, “we have to cut out mistakes” etc, etc.

Unfortunately, all concerned at the club never learn and this year I am sorry to say there will be no miracle. The main reason is the result of the Nexit ( Newcastle Exit ) from the Premier league.

The last four seasons, Sunderland has only survived by the generosity of points donated by our local rivals.

I believe that we were given quite a few millions of pounds for surviving last season.

Where has it been spent? Why could we not attract decent players?

Why did we haggle over a paltry £5m fee for one of last year’s top players and lose another decent player?

Newcastle and, of course, the failure to buy a decent partner for Defoe just beggar’s belief.
