I would take remaining in the Championship now, when the season started I predicted mid table. It seems that mid table is a big ask for the team we have.

Another loss at home,---and the Team are not getting better,---seems there is nothing there,---and to be honest--even when Duncan Watmore comes back--I don't think it will make much difference,----and at the moment--these are dark times for our Club,---- I truly feel for all the fans,--but--all we can do is keep hoping that things can be turned around.

A point away to Preston has halted the defeats,---and reports saying we played a lot better ---so just got to hope it's the start of better things to come---also lets hope we can get players back from injury too,--cheers.

Yes we played a lot better at Preston cracking goal from Aiden McGeady two good penalty appeals and their keeper should have been sent off lets hope we can build on it.

Yeah read about the penalty claims--plus people saying the Goalkeeper should have been sent off,---anyway,--we have to build on this----and hopefully with players coming back from injury--we might be able to improve,-----btw,--lets give a huge pat on back for the Supporters---another 3,000 travelled and made there voice heard,--so well done to them,---cheers.

Well done to the Under 23s on the 2-0 win over Hertha Berlin in the Premiere League International Cup---also it was good that Paddy McNair got to play after a long lay off from injury,--Duncan Watmore also got more minutes under his belt,---so well done to the Lads.

Another draw,---and although a point away from home is okay,---I thought when we were 3-1 up at half time,--that this was going to be three valuable points in the bag,---but we are SAFC,--and nothing surprises any more.

Huge disappointment not to win after leading 3 1 but Grabban back to scoring ways and Watmore playing well are what I'm clinging onto!

Yeah it's good to see a couple of the better players back,--but as you say--think most supporters are trying to take some kind of positives,--but it's going to be a long hard slog this Season though,--cheers.

Some pretty strange choices on there. Anyone for Moyes at 12/1? They may as well give the job to Kanye West. In all seriousness, Big Sam is the obvious choice. Someone who knows the club but without the past record of failure, someone with a track record of getting teams out of trouble.

I would love Sam back but its not going to happen. I don't want Ally McCoist or Phil Brown.

Big Sam would be my choice too,--but I read the other day that he was interesting Everton,---anyway we just have to hope that whoever takes over--will be experienced enough to pick up the Team--especially the defence --other wise we are staring at relegation.

Which ever manager we get I am sure that one or two senior players will toast his appointment.

This from the Sunderland Echo,--

Ellis Short interview: Everything the owner said on Sunderland's plight



Ellis Short has spoken about a wide number of issues in a rare interview with safc.com Here's what the Sunderland owner said on his long-term goals, takeover talk, sacking Simon Grayson and more. On why he has spoken out now.... ‘We’ve obviously got a bit of a crisis to solve right now. When things are going this poorly, lots of things become issues, maybe things which shouldn’t be. And supporters should that when a reporter talks about what I’m thinking or what I’m doing, he’s only guessing or making it up, because I don’t talk to the press. Right now the issue is the performance on the pitch and how we can turn things around. I thought that if I address some of these issues directly we can focus on that a little bit more. On fan frustration... "I think the frustration goes beyond just the relegation. Since I took over we’ve been in the Premier League for ten years, and although we weren’t always there in the greatest style, I as a fan always felt like we were fighting. Last season the way we got relegated was particularly frustrating because as a fan, I didn’t really feel like we had that fight. Getting relegated in last place was particularly galling, especially since in the second half of the season before we’d been quite good, I believe it was the half-season we’ve ever had. "We went into last season on a bit of a note of optimism. Going into this season I as a fan and I think many of the fans were optimistic, and certainly expected better than what we’ve had so far.

I know Ellis is dammed if he does and dammed if he doesn't, but this doesn't feel like an interview. It feels like he wanted to get certain points across and the questions were made to fit what he wanted to say.

Its strange that Mr Short made his money from buying distressed companies, but through his bad decisions has turned Sunderland AFC into a distressed company.

This next appointment needs to work, or I do fear that we could go the way that Portsmouth did.

Is Reidy the answer with SKP as his number two, I am not so sure but one thing is that with Peter Reid in charge the players would certainly have to pull there weight which a lot of them dont seem to be doing.
