    Any sign of you getting Enobakhare? He was class from what I seen last season.

    Yes if burge your number 2 keeper then that’s good business. If he can be infused with confidence and get coached more on when to come for crosses burge would be a very good L1 keeper. Like all at this level he has more than the odd error in him...and some are v embarrassing.
    And if your central defenders as bad as you say then Willis will bring an improvement. He has lots of experience at this level. We appear to have replaced well but I still suspect there will be times this season when we miss him.

    Rumours that we're still in for him. Club publicly stating we're interested. There's definitely a chance. Would be a fantastic signing whether permanent or loan.

    Yeah he has tendonitis, which flares up every now and again hence having to miss a few random games

    I don’t mind. Just feel he should’ve had a cast iron offer to refuse to sign with us. Annoys me because he went just past the tribunal fee cut off them ran his contract down.

    Frankly I’m not a fan of the whole Bosman/tribunal thing anyway so am never happy when we lose one of our own for nothing.

    Add 'a sense of humour' to the list of things people from Sunderland are lacking.

    Below those I think. It's close to fruit and veg consumption which is so low they class haribo as one of their five a day.

    I find Sunderland strange. Seem to have decent players but no manager seems to ever be able to get the best out of them? I'm a fan of jack Ross, but he seemed to split opinion to your fans.

    I do think if you don't go up this season you could follow a similar trajectory to ourselves in being stuck at this level longer than wanted. But looking at your squad I would expect a top 6 finish again. With a couple of decent signings can see you pushing top 2.

    What's the story in regards to your finances and the takeover? Seen a few mentions of these on your forum but never read through the topics

    Papers saying we’ve got a £600k bid that’s not been rejected but Wolves want to look at him in preseason. So fingers crossed.

    You’ve got a decent defender in Willis and a good professional. He’ll do you well. Burge however...

    The takeover looked pretty close but appears to have had a hold-up and now it's off. It shouldn't affect us this season as financially we don't need it until/if we get back up into the Championship. We're not skint, but unfortunately, the League One FFP rules have come into effect now for us (relegated teams get a years grace), and with the club paying 46k a week to Oviedo, 40k a week to Cattermole (who's obviously gone now), it's turned into a balancing act to keep within the allowed income/outcome threshold. Just one of those difficult things to deal with for being shit for the last few years, I guess.

    Looks like Willis is being announced tomorrow - glad we might actually have a capable defender in the side next season.

    As far as I know there are no plans for more investment at this stage.

    There are some right dribblers on that forum who don’t want to give the current owners a chance even though they’ve basically turned a complete financial basket case of a club around in the space of a year.

    They’ve put the club on really sound financial footing, which is what was needed after years of excess under Ellis Short.

    For some reason there are people on that forum who expect us to be chucking money about like there’s no tomorrow whilst we are in League 1, they don’t seem to want to acknowledge that is what got us into such a mess in the first place.

    Sounds very much like our Facebook forum. I’m intrigued as to where our money is coming from this season though, we’ve already bought 3 or 4 players for fees and still have a £600k bid on the table for another and rumours around another permanent signing.

    46k to a player in League one? That's insane.

    Would have thought there would be clauses for relegation.

    I think that was after the clauses had come into affect! He was on more in the prem for them... But they didn't have clauses for relegation to league one...

    I don’t understand. Are you saying there are professional keepers who you don’t think are good enough to play professional football and you decide. Huh

    Gutting to hear he’s left to play for another team in the league. Hopefully he’ll be regretting it next summer.

    Would he be on a lot more money with Sunderland?

    The thing is that is probably what he was getting paid after the relegation clause had come into effect.

    The previous regime were absolutely clueless.

    Excuse my ignorance but why are you going through another takeover process? I thought the new lot had come in only a year ago and have done an ok job at stopping the rot.

    Are you suggesting that he won't get a higher wage?

    Wherever he ends up, Sunderland or elsewhere, he'll be on more than his last contract with us.

    Am I right in thinking that we’d put quite a substantial offer on the table for Willis?

    They must be paying well over the odds in wages considering we’re hardly broke this season.
