    I enjoyed the Sunderland documentary...
    There's no way they should have gone into league 1 with the players they had. The owner had enough of spending money and was no help. They hadn't a pot to piss in and Jack Roswell getting 70k a week off them and never playing. Club did crazy things....
    I'd like to see them back in championship, the fans deserve it to be fair.

    I never knew that Chris Coleman fucked off from his Mrs. for the sky sports news girl Charlotte Jackson. Chris was always murder for his hole apparently.

    I follow alot of the NFL stuff as they are way ahead of most sports in terms of movement/physical literacy, technical proficiency of skills, team culture etc.. so I find all that interesting as I apply it to my coaching roles.

    I actually think this is better than the All Blacks

    Totally off topic but isn't Jim Gavin a big fan of NFL coaching methods or did I dream that up?

    Yup and Basketball. Massive for use of the feet first technique to direct the players away from the goal.

    Rugby trying to tap into the NFL as well. Stuart Lancaster over at their training camps for the last few summers.

    Just reading about Birmingham there.They lost 37.5m last season after their wage bill rose from 22m to 38m between Redknapp and Zolas time,and they're likely to get a 15 point deduction which would push them into a relegation battle.They're already under a transfer embargo and would probably have to take a big hit on investments in players to get the finances on an even keel. During Redknapps time the club were spending 234 pounds for every 100 they generated,that fella will put any football club in the ground if he's let. Like Sunderland what they have going for them is the owners appear to be willing to own the debts but it's crazy that no matter how many times clubs gamble and fail,there's always another one just around the corner. For every sugar daddy situation that goes well,they're must be 10 that go to shit.

    I think that was a different situation mate. Sunderland and Birminghams owners were grossly irresponsible,but they were investing to try and make the club successful and ate the losses or are willing to eat the losses in Birminghams case.Im not saying they didn't want to reap the rewards eventually but they set out with the goal of everybody being happy. Those Oyston scumbags purely wanted to bleed every penny out of the club and didn't care what was left when they were finished.
