    A profit not bad business,
    Not quite good enough a typical BFS signing or was it not his fault ?
    Good luck finding a new club BFS might be coming back for you at his new club

    I would ask the Sunderland fans what’s their reaction to the possibility Sam could be their next manager… are they dancing in the streets? lol

  • bubs says:

    No Matte its total Labour up there they will be crying in there beer and then they are going to end up with BFS,
    Feel sorry for them great honest fans a lot of money spent on rejects from top 6 teams who treat it like early retirement and don’t put themselves out,
    Great stadium as well just bad business decision by owners.

    Sam bearer of hope… lol

  • Michael Miller says:

    BFS playing out of position didn’t help – it was obvious from Day One that BFS didn’t fancy him but he was able to sign him cheaply because his Contract was coming up – another suspicious bit of business involving BFS and his mate Mark Curtis!!
