    I'm curious to see who you bring in as manager. Moyes adds some storylines, but I have a funny feeling your going a different route.

    I hope you go a different route with the new manager, imagine the scenes if it is Titus Bramble!

    Sir Alex is back hah probably not
  • I hope for a different manager other than Moyes, as I feel that could limit possible storytelling.

    Could go with someone completely unknown, or could use someone like Ian Holloway.

    I hear Peter Odemwingie is parked outside the ground hoping to get in ;)

    He leaves Sunderland after nine months, and the Black Cats are now looking for their ninth manager in eight years.
    According to these figures, it looks like the Sunderland chairman is Massimo Cellino. :joy:
    Haha, our chairman is useless honestly, can't wait til they leave
    Wonder if it'll be Moyes, or someone else.
    Expect the unexpected

    Maybe he's been bumping into Leon Osman and Tony Hibbert who have been hanging around the bins since Moyes came in

    Good luck mate! I'm intrigued to see how you do with this team and how long it takes before you don't have any of these players anymore.

    The financial turmoil and needing to sell lots of players?

    Groundbreaking news coming out of the Stadium of Light as, after being assessed by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) regarding their use of the employee benefit trust fund (EBT), have been taken to court over fines and debt surrounding this situation. Figures up to nine figures have rumored, and if this is true, the results could of be the end of Sunderland as we know them.

    Sunderland's debt over the recent years has been very much public knowledge, but there was no indication of a possible tax fraud occurring within Sunderland A.F.C.. In a press conference a few days ago, Ellis Short claimed the E.B.T. was a valid form of tax avoidance, however in a secret recording, the American is heard to have said that the club could go out of business if the matter is taken to court. A representative from HMRC said the situation was like Rangers all over again, and that the recent moving within Sunderland have been "rats escaping a sinking ship".

    Upon discussions with HMRC, Ellis Short refused to remit the pay-as-you-go tax to his employees. On 31st of June, Sunderland filed legal papers at the Court of Session giving notice of their intention to enter administration. The following day HMRC petitioned the court for authority to appoint their choice of administrator, but this was unsuccessful, and on the following day Sunderland officially entered administration on 1st of July 2016, after appointing Bristol-based financial advisers
    Paradigm Norton as administrators.

    It's now the 2nd of July, and no body quite knows what the future holds for Sunderland A.F.C.. It is likely now that the club will enter liquidation but the process is still on going, and anything could happen.

    So you'll be dropping leagues then, hence the Road to Redemption?

    Could be interesting.

    This is going to be really interesting now. Getting ready to see how Sunderland can do in the League Two now. B)

    This is looking good, Chris. I feel that you're idea of giving turmoil in the financial sector of the club is a great mind.

    Can't remember if I've seen a story in here where someone starts as a big club like Sunderland in League 2, so this will be fascinating to follow, I hope it goes down like that anyway :)
  • Who said anything about League 2?

    Spanish league then? I'm sure Sunderland could find a way to avoid tax there ;)

    And find workarounds if they are given "transfer bans"
    A merger with Newcastle... ;)

    If that happened a black hole will appear and swallow up the whole of the north of England xD

    Hmmmm, very interesting. Being so new to,the sport I kinda know what happened with Rangers but judging from your other responses it looks like you might not be doing what everyone else is thinking. Bringing Sunderland back up from league 2 would be hell of fun to watch.

    I like the financial difficulty story line and it's really relevant to football today with all the big money around. What happens when it dries up? like in this story - interesting times ahead.
