Sunderland till I die.

Recommended Posts

I’ve acoided it on Netflix as I didn’t think it would be worth watching but it’s quite fascinating actually. Might be the coma of Christmas and alcohol but it’s hard not to binge.

It's car crash TV innit. I'm about 4 episodes in

I’m on ep 6 and can’t stop. Thought it was a puff piece but it’s not at all. It’s captivating.

I'll finish it in a few days when the rellies f*** off. But yeah - knowing what happens you can't take your eyes off it 

 

The CEO is a f***ing moron

Would definitely rather watch this than the city one

I was happy boozing away on my own in the back room of our gaff watching it while the rellies argue away in the sitting room. Been drafted in to be socialable so will finish it off later.

It’s mad the bad luck that falls on a team that’s on its downers. Nice to see the openness too.

Just caught the first two episodes. David Brent is right.

 

You have to wonder what kind of pay off he got for that mess. 

 

Coleman (and assistant Kit Symons) also seem to have landed on their feet - currently in China managing Mascherano and Lavezzi at Hebei China Fortune - they're mid-table.

Coleman always seems pretty sound.

My cousin drives for the FAI and drove him around once when he was the manager of Wales.

 

Said he was an absolute gent. Really nice guy.

 

I've always thought he came across as a bit of a knob but apparently not.

Martin Bain and Brendan Rodgers might be soulmates

 

hahaha

 

I mean - they had 3 keepers who each were utter dross, and the defence is a shambles. You don't get proper footy coverage but you can still see the number of soft goals being let in. 

 

I hear they're doing another for this season. That Maja kid was about to sign a new contract & 'agents' got involved, now looks like he's off this month.

 

Grabban comes across like a right s***

yeah, stabbing Coleman in the back the f*****.

 

Gibson - bit of a dick but also inner demons.

 

 

Really took to Jonny Williams - I wish him a sound career

What about Jack Rodwell?

Read most of this before I watched most of it and I’m not sure what the Martin Bain issue is that people have. Seemed fairly normal to me.

The only issue I'd have with him is that he didn't get a proper striker in January

 

Think Coleman gets part of the blame for that as well, should have really done more to keep the only player who was getting goals for them

I didn't think he was as bad as some people made him out to be, just found him a bit of a sap who enjoyed the camera a bit too much. His complaints about Rodwell were a bit much considering he was on £1.5m a year at the time as well.

Yeah me too. I kept waiting for these Brent like moments & they never really happened. Grayson’s sacking seemed pretty clumsy but the handling of football decisions often are.

 

Had a truly awful & impossible job (in footballing terms) & looked like he was trying his best - which may well have not been good enough - but he seemed to genuinely care.

Well not really as at least he was doing his job.
