    And on the back foot....lol.... give it a rest mate, its football banter, you start with the looking out of the window daydreaming shit and education etc.... I'd listen all day to you about greyhounds or coursing, and not open my mouth cause I know next to f**k all....I know enough about football to have a yap, I think.youre on the wind up most of the time...or do you really believe some of the crap you write?.....

    fishing comp charity

    Nah.... not on FB and really not my scene from what I can see of it... The comps fine, we raise enough, the crack is good and tbh the numbers are about right... It was never meant to be some mass gathering, around 25 people is great... Never a bad word, fall out etc, and I think we're around 15k raised in 7 years....not bad for a little get together... Regards the site, it's only a platform for us to yap on.... I dont care about the site owners lack of involvement in this... I get what you mean about sponsorship...perhaps a prize for the auction wouldn't go amiss....maybe next year eh.

    Fair enough.... I know if I asked any of my football mates about Sunderland being a massive club they'd tell.me to stop talking shit....

    I'm not sure I agree mate... It's a bit like the debate about old boxers against new, or even footballers from the past against the new.. it all.moves on and each generation has there heroes, but they all learn from the past.. The likes of Clough, Robson, Ferguson, Wenger etc...changed the game to beyond where it was before everything evolves, but man management and adapting to football scenarios pretty much remains the same... the teams working behind these modern managers are up a few levels, dieticians, fitness coaches, medical staff etc etc.. For me Ronaldo (Portuguese) is the best footballer we have ever seen, he has everything....but how good would Pele, or Best have been with modern training methods and diets?? Its great to compare and discuss but as with everything it keeps evolving...

    I played as high as I could, but was one of those work horse type midfielders you would like...big enough, strong enough and pretty fit...played with some ver good skillful players and always wished I had a bit more of that, but some of them couldn't handle the better level armature football its physical and fast... Played with a lot of old pros, they could just play, everything was easy... I can honestly say I don't remember one conversation about Sunderland, there weren't many Sumderland fans down this way, which kind of tells you everything about their mass appeal... and this is going back over 20 years, even through youth football it was Liverpool, Man Utd, a few Totenham fans..a City fan I remember lol... I can honestly say I've been in hundreds of football clubs and played with and against probably thousands of players, and Sunderland ain't a discussion..... Your right though, I'm not a historian on football, I like a decent player, I like to watch a decent side, I like the way certain managers set up their sides and behave... but it's just a simple outlook... I certainly cant go back before the war and hold a conversation.... I can only talk about what I've seen or know...

    Playing a bit of football doesn't prepare you for the THL history lessons on North East football that's for sure! Lol

    It was a bit tongue in cheek about City to be honest... Not about Sunderland though, the 2nd biggest team in the north east..maybe? Lol

    Football like everything in life has joined the throw away generation...sad but true...some of the best managers ever had to work with what they had, this new wave of mass fortune eradicated that....pep and Jurgen are still very good coaches though

    I dont think I'm kidding myself mate, until I started tapping on here I never gave Sunderland a 2nd thought and I've been.involved with football all my life... its just what it is, go to Asia, Africa and anywhere in Europe and there will be UTD, Arsenal and Liverpool fans, shirts everywhere.... Sunderland have no foreign appeal and never have...they.are a big club in their region, that's it... As I said hopefully the foreign money sorts you out a bit, but you cant deny past record would say your club squanders more money than.most.... Dont kid yourself that an influx of foreign money will be aiming for premier league survival with players that would "run through a brick wall".... the games moved on now, as much as we all love a tireless workhorse they dont win you trophies...we are lucky to have the worlds best talent playing in our premier league, City and Liverpool are 2 of the most entertaining sides I've ever seen... If your desire is to have a few billion pounds at the clubs disposal to waste on mediocre players to survive it pretty much sums up the attitude of the club... Love it or hate it, City have shown what desire and money can bring...they still aren't a big club though!! Lol

    The problem will.be when the billionaire investor has enough of his play thing and the club is exactly where it is now again. The point made a thousand times is "big" clubs are just that, they have been for as long as most of us can remember, money is one part of that... as Wilf said, the brand is built over decades... I've said it a few times, I dont consider Chelsea a big club, they just aren't a Liverpool, UTD, Barca or Madrid..imo I hope the money comes into Sunderland and they get out of their current hole, they have a big fan base in the area, and it will be good for them.... hopefully they dont squander the opportunity before they reap some reward, the past record of chucking good money after bad whilst they drop through the leagues is hopefully learnt from...
