Piqued my interest so I went and looked at News Now for the first time in years.Just shy of 30,000 season cards, will easily pass that total, absolutely phenomenal figures. Already wiped out the rest of the championship re attendance, weeks before a ball is kicked.
Got Roberts signed now, contracts getting renewed, hopefully gives Neil a solid platform to build on, Methven gone, hopefully some more good news this week re transfers.
Aye, there's a lot getting a bit carried away. It would be marvellous, I'd be happy with survival first season back, I do actually think they'll go for it though. Still need a few in.Piqued my interest so I went and looked at News Now for the first time in years.
The Echo reported the bookies' odds through the Championship. Had SAFC at fifth shortest to win the league, suggesting a play-off finish.
Colour me surprised.
Apparently he played in the Blackpool squad with Embleton when he was on loan there, I read an article he'd put out on Thursday, he was saying that Embleton was influential in him making the decision to come, apparently they are good mates.From what I’ve seen of young Ballard in a green shirt, he’s a great signing for us. Strong, aggressive and skilful. Potential to play at a much higher level if he continues to improve. Roberts signed. Gooch and Wright seemingly were keen to stay and get new contracts signed off. Clarke reportedly wanting to be here too are all good signs that we’re heading in the right direction. For first time in since god knows when we feel like a club which has a plan going forward too. From the boardroom down to the pitch. It’s unusual but I could get used to feeling optimistic. Another striker and a keeper please. Keep existing players fit and I’d be happy with consolidating in the championship for a while. As long as we keep moving forward as a club.
Does no harm at all either I’m sure to have a few friendly faces (and accents) too with Corey, Trai Hume and Carl Winchester already here.Apparently he played in the Blackpool squad with Embleton when he was on loan there, I read an article he'd put out on Thursday, he was saying that Embleton was influential in him making the decision to come, apparently they are good mates.
Decent business that. At least one striker and a keeper still needed I reckon. Free transfers or loans I’d imagine given the wage cap and what we’ve supposedly already spent.AFAIK Clarke just signed.
3.5 million Clarke
2 million Ballard
New deal for Roberts.
That makes us one of if not biggest spenders in championship so far, still early July. Puts to bed the KLD won't spend money theory.
Some are saying it's got loads of add- ons which would take it to £10 million. That will be cool as we'd be in premier league by then.Decent business that.

No. There’ll be a European super league by 2030. You lot will merely be one of the better teams in a half forgotten “domestic” league, bereft of Liverpoo, Man U and City, west and north London et al. I only half joke, but I fear I’m on the money. Excuse the pun.£10 million won't be worth diddly squat in 2055 when Sunderland eventually arrive in the Promised Land. The top clubs, one of which will be my pride and joy of course, will all be involved in some Global Super League, the Premier League being a distant memory.
