    Despite the antics of Donald any new owners of SAFC should be given a warm welcome.

    These people will have an injunction slapped on any forum, making spurious allegations, before they can say WikiLeaks.

    These people are brutal if they have to be.

    Massive help, if we're still in this league next season, that the old salary cap has been scrapped though.

    Some people don't realise that what you put on a message board, twitter, Facebook ect. can be liablous. At least until the writs come their way.

    How can any genuine safc fan find the events of the last few days anything but amazingly positive? It baffles me.

    We have gone from an insurance salesman, a pr bloke and a South American that liked his photo took to KLD and his trusted advisors.

    The previous owners wouldn't know what £330 million looked like let alone £33 billion

    Sadly some people were agreeing with them, I had a quick look but it's too weird.

    The good lads, like Grumpy, can handle the loons.

    I think that's very likely mate. Probably when we get promoted to increase revenue.

    I am panting at the thought of travelling to the first home game whenever that is. I can guarantee our new owner will be more than pleased at the passion in the ground.
    I'll be there ....... as long as they don't kneel, in fact I'll still be there, I'll just look away.

    I, for one, am happy that the FPP deal fell through. Okay we've had to wait a while, but I think we're about to embark on something beyond our wildest dreams with these people at the helm.

    I can imagine the first game of next season being a full house, no matter which division we're in, because anyone with half a brain can see that our new owners are do-ers, not talkers, and it's just a matter of when we'll be successful, not if.

    Feel like a kid in a sweet shop at the minute.

    There's plenty of things I would like to have said about her, but I was aware of the potential ramifications.

    All the waiting is forgotten because the end result is clearly worth it x10.

    KLD has obviously been lining up his troops and plotting the removal of the previous clowns.

    That's taken time but the team, he's assembled, are a crack force ....

    ... it must be an exciting time for the SOL staff having people like this popping in.

    The whole club will change ...

    ... people will eventually ask if we supported Sunderland before the money arrived.

    Serious people with good intentions and the financial clout, contacts and nous to implement them.
    Compared to the Eastleigh mob. From the ridiculous to the sublime.

    My future son-in-law was one of only two Sunderland fans at a factory in Felling. He left there, but today the other Sunderland fan rang him and asked him to listen to the conversation. The Mags were going apeshit - "We've been waiting ages for a takeover, and ****in Sunlun get 2 in fower years. How the hell did they get this French fella? " <laugh> <laugh>

    Oh crap, just realised that if they let us back on our holidays abroad, I'll not be home for most of August. I'll miss our 1st home and possibly 2nd home games next season. I didn't even give it a thought when I booked in April 2020. Bugger, school boy error.
