Ozturk Proved Innocent

May 13, 2019

 

Alim Ozturk will be available for the second leg of our play-off semi-final against Portsmouth after his red card from Saturday's game was rescinded. Andy Woolmer is a wanker!

 

In other news, Charlie Methven has also explained the club’s financial situation, in terms of in coming investment. Methven said: "Financially, in terms of on-going costs, staying in League One is straightforward. In fact, going up represents more of a challenge. But, of course, in terms of the capital value of our holdings, promotion is worth a lot more to us. And let's not beat about the bush, we want to go up. We have probably sorted out 60 to 70 per cent of the mess we inherited and while we would need an extra oomph in our financial petrol tank if we were promoted to the Championship, there are quite a few investors who want to join us. They know that putting money into Sunderland Football Club is no longer akin to throwing it in a deep black hole. We've made this club investable again. I would like to think that to some degree we've reconnected with the fans and if we don't go up, there would be a period of mourning, intense disappointment and lacerating self-criticism. And that will go from the boardroom to the dressing room. But I think the bond is pretty strong now. Most of what we've been done is well received. There's no doubt that when times are good, the Stadium of Light is the loudest in the country but the challenge for us is to ensure it's rocking even when we get the odd bad result. As a board, we cannot affect what happens on the pitch but what we can do is ensure every other aspect of the club - directors, employees and supporters - is as together as possible. Fans no longer come out of a sense of duty. They want to be part of it. If the club keeps on trying to do things right off the pitch, remain fully engaged with the community and listens to the concerns of the fans, we'll be fine."

At the back end of the 1980s, football fanzines began to sweep the country and in 1989 we were presented with a new vehicle on which to enjoy some of this ride – A Love Supreme. ALS was a place we could all go to celebrate and commiserate being a Sunderland fan. Win, lose or draw, the pages of the fanzine became solace for many of us as we stumbled our way through our day to day lives, punctuated by the ups and downs of more match days than any of us care to remember.
