    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 :)
    I figured it would be unique, and its something I usually do in a private CM 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


    Haha it would
    So who would replace them if they were sent down the leagues?
    All will be explained
    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.
    Honestly, I tried thinking of a situation where this would happen, that wasn't the Rangers deal, but I couldn't haha

    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.
    It's an eventuality in my opinion

    League 2 has been a popular opinion, I've had this story planned for a while though so you'll to see

    Yeah it surely would be a more than tough challenge, but it would be fun to follow. :)

    Its official. The company, Sunderland LTD., the company which operated Sunderland A.F.C., has been liquidated. HMRC made clear a few days ago that it would vote against a proposed Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA), and their formal rejection of the proposed CVA from Sunderland, means that the company which operated Sunderland has been liquidated.

    Moving forward the club will have to be reformed under a new company structure, with the clubs assets being sold, with bids already rumoured to be materializing. The club will have to re-apply to compete in the Premier League next season, however it is unlikely that they're application will be accepted, with a drop to the English Football League likely.

    Little to no news has came from the club itself, as the future of all the players, and staff members, in doubt. An official statement from administrators, Paradigm Norton, is likely in the coming days.

    In a triumphant return, Niall Quinn has led the Sunder-Ireland consortium into the purchase of the Sunderland A.F.C. assets. The return of the Black Cats legend brings an end to the financial turmoil Sunderland found themselves in. Made up with former Wearside stars, and business men, from both Ireland and Sunderland, the Sunder-Ireland consortium have vowed to once again make Sunderland a steady ship, with safeguards being implemented in order to prevent this happening again.

    In a statement, Niall Quinn said, "When I left Sunderland a few years back, I thought that was it for myself and the club. I love the club, and the people of Sunderland, but at the time it certainly felt like the right decision. When I was last here, yes the club was in debt, but in no more debt than the rest of the league; I have no idea what has gone on since my departure."

    He added, "When I saw the trouble the club was in, I knew I had to intervene. I couldn't allow another Ellis Short to take control of the club, I had to make sure it was in safe hands, and I believe the Sunder-Ireland consortium to be those safe hands. I will be resuming my role as Sunderland chairman as soon as possible, in order to begin carrying over contracts of the players".

    The Premier League confirmed today that Sunderland had launched an application to compete in the Premier League and released the following statement, "At 1.30pm today, we received an application from Sunderland Association Football Club to compete in the 2016 / 2017 Premier League season. After consulting with the Football League and the FA, a vote is to be held amongst the current 19 Premier League clubs, on whether or not Sunderland should be re-instated in the league or not. The results will be released in the coming days".

    Interesting start to this. Probably wouldn't hurt to drop down a division or two and build from the ground up.

    I'm thinking if that ended up happening though, realistically he would lose many many players who even if the club could afford them they wouldn't want to play in a lower league so... ya know... its tricky

    It's official - Sunderland's decade long tenure in the Premier League is over after the majority of teams voted to reject the Black Cats application to play in the league. The Premier League made a big decision by tabling the decision to the other teams in the league who voted, in a 17 to 2 split, in favor of rejecting Wearside.

    Just when it seemed that Sunderland were back on track with the arrival of Niall Quinn, and the Sunder-Ireland consortium, this curve leaves Sunderland's future in doubt. The manager-less club now looks towards the Football League for a positive decision regarding where they will compete next season.

    However, on a note of some hope, the worst case scenairo for Sunderland next season, is League 2 football. The Football League announced that they would accept Sunderland into one of their divisions, following the Premier League's decision, but once again a vote will go to the teams. The 72 Football League clubs will all be voting on whether Sunderland should be competing in the Championship, League 1, or League 2.

    The results of the vote are expected in the coming days.
