    I doubt his departure will make one jot of difference to the fortunes of the club. If anything him gone will be a positive thing.
    Him and SD arrived full of the Joys and embarked on a cut price charm offensive brim full of fan platitudes and various smoke and mirror tricks.
    Cutting back staff and reducing overheads (eg fixing lifts, using fans to install and paint faded seats ) are hallmarks of el cheapo asset strippers .
    They are both one trick ponies and CM realised he had been sussed and no longer had respect or credibility so has decided to do one.
    People believing sartori will be an improvement need help. He is an overindulged scion of a wealthy connected very right wing uruguayan family, and the son in law of a Putin favourite. Really bodes well for the average fan.
    When these 3 tried to take over oxford and their plans revealed they were given short shrift and chased.
    We are now lower than we have ever been in our history and right now there is no light in this tunnel...on or off the field.
    They hired ross and kept him at least 6 months too long. They hired another manager cut from the same unadventurous cloth.
    Until donald and JS also quit 'Dodge' things will not improve

    " ..... right now there is no light in this tunnel."

    We've just had millions invested by billionaires who've registered a company at the SOL ...

    ... that's not everything but it's not nothing.

    Wonder how the PR push will go for Boxing day now he's gone...

    Fair play to him for getting the American connections but lets hope hes not spiteful and goes and starts filling their heads full of ****.

    Yes! This is the problem, the owners are Conservatives, or worse, and they have money. That's why we're in League 1 and it's a well known fact that Conservatives only appoint **** managers.
    If we had red banner-waving Communists in charge, they would have appointed Comrade Guardiola and we'd have been promoted directly to the Premier League.

    There's a whole lot being said about Methven being the vital link between the club and the Americans.

    Really?

    Haway, these people have been looking to buy a club since well before Methven ever heard of Sunderland.

    They even had a deal on the table for Newcastle before he arrived.

    If they want to but a football club they don't need an upper class PR salesman to hold their hands.

    Given that he's either gone or going I'll be surprised if he's there.

    Probably your offer to 'meet up' that pushed him over the edge.

    What does 'Really bodes well for the average fan' actually mean?

    Aren't we there to turn up, have a drink and a sing, watch the games and go home?

    I've no idea how Bob Stokoe voted, whether he kept balls kicked onto his back garden or kicked the neighbours cat ...

    ... still love the bloke.

    Why do you persist with your lies about painted seats?

    They do you no favours when most on here know the reality, that the seats are new!

    My post was prior to the announcement so was relevant at the time.

    He reads this forum so I was speaking directly ...
    ... and I was quite angry at the time having seen what he'd said.

    And the fitting of them was a perfect example of collectivism and the people working for the greater good. I bet Juan, the capitalist pig, hated it.
