    Doesn't sound like things are going Sunderland's way. Half the squad released, having to pay nearly 10m compensation for a player they don't own anymore, potential buyers pulling out

    And getting shot down by Aberdeen's managers. Sounds like years of mismanagement have got them up shit street.

    I'd guess folk see the full stadium and potential size of the club, get in the door, take one look at the club's balance sheet and run a mile

    We have them away, first game.

    Relegated teams often struggle for the first few games, so I'm relatively happy with that, but I would dearly love to give them a 'welcome to the league' pounding.

    There's a very good chance that they'll go down again. The club is completely imploding.

    In he words of Shakin' Stevens "Lovely stuff".

    I fully expect they'll flirt with double relegation like Wolves a few years ago, but the championship is that unpreictable who knows whether they'll go straight to League 1. Difference is there seems to be something terminally wrong with that club. Just feels like they will.

    There's a horrible fat mackem in the office and it's actually making me sexually aroused watching him react to all this.

    I feel bad for them because I have a lot of Sunderland supporting friends but I also think it's long overdue given the state of them on and off the pitch


    not to mention having a former chief exec who hushed up a player grooming an underage fan and that player now jailed for being a paedo

    Apparently 60,000 a week contract offered and 2m bonus if we go up but that part is from The S*n.

    @nickthegun Hughes to Watford? Surely he could better.

    I dunno. Hes had a very poor season and his development seems to have plateaued. One of his big problems is that he has the robust build of a female gymnast, so when you come up against a team of big fuckers like Bristol City, they just bully him.

    He may well be better off in the prem where he will be better protected and allowed to play his game.

    As far as Watford are concerned, I think that's probably his max level at the moment. As I say, he hasn't kicked on and he was shit this year, so he has to prove himself again.

    I do hope this is paper bullshit. I may give up on Villa if we have stooped so low. Giving the last payday to an over-the-hill player has worked so appallingly in the past, why would this be any different?

    There were ITK rumours that a guy whos friends cousin knows a guy whos brother is a waiter who saw Terry having lunch with a club official a while ago and, honestly, I would rather have a kid from the academy play week in week out than pay that cunt 60k a week.

    Abdul Kamaras contract has been cancelled 'by mutual consent'. Shame, really. He looked like a talent but just a typical speedboat with no captain.

    We also say goodbye to one of those chants you feel a bit guilty for laughing at:

    I was really hoping he'd go to Birmingham, so I'd have 3 reasons to hate them.

    Oh well, will try and find some positives... Somewhere.

    Great start to the transfer window! Our rebuilding job has started by selling our two best players. Absolutely fucking wonderful....

    Watching our first game online against kidderminster harriers. We are absolutely dumping on them. Im pretty sure the commentator said they only have 3 full time, contracted players. I know they have to start slowly but, fucking hell..

    @Jono62 so uninspiring. I just don't see the point, why buy such an average player when there is already a surfeit of average players in the same position. Plus, Elmohamady has been pretty shite any time I have seen him play. He has no final product at all.

    @Mr_Sleep For sure. It would be much better to try the youth players to see if they can make it instead of buying or being linked to Christopher Samba and Glenn Whelan.

    Same old shit.
