Short to give Sunderland away for nothing

This is our SAFC Forum of course. You may chat about Sunderland AFC here together with any other footballing matters. Obviously, the Black Cats are the main focus. However, this is basically our football lounge.

Short to give Sunderland away for nothing

Nobody else has mentioned this so I will.
I didn't really want to talk about this situation or even the thought of going down but I think we better brace ourselves.
The club is in debt and couldn't buy players despite people saying we should be buying.
We are in so much debt, Ellis Short is thinking of giving the club away for free.
Though in cases like this, he will probably have to charge a fee, possibly £1.

New owners would have to promise to pay the estimated debt of over £130m.
But I think Ellis Short will also need assurances that they will invest further after that.
So there you have it, all those years in the Premier League and we are now worth £1.00.

So he will give the club away providing he gets back his £69m he has put in himself. Oh yeah, great, he messes up the business and our great football team and he wants a load of money back. Why not just give it away, its his cock up, so it should be his loss!
I might have the day off today!
