Unbelievable news emerges from Sunderland – and NUFC fan’s reaction is priceless

Following their relegation into League One, it’s been confirmed that Stewart Donald has completed a £40m takeover of Sunderland (yes forty!), made even more laughable after news that he’s keen to bring Chris Coleman back – just a few weeks after he was sacked!

Getting rid of Ellis Short is a move that’s delighted fans on Wearside and could be set to propel them in the right direction, but that doesn’t change just how unbelievable some of this is.

Not only does the takeover show Sunderland are now worth a tenth of NUFC (if Ashley’s £400m asking price is anything to go by), but their attempt to re-appoint the man they recently sacked really is the cherry on the top!

As you’d expect, Newcastle fans have had their say on the matter – and some of the posts on social media are brilliant:

They call us obsessed. I call it karma.

Enjoy Accrington away lads!

  1. Mike Ashley has missed a huge trick here to get back into the hearts of all Geordies.
    He could have bought SAFC and then had some great fun with them by running polls on what we should do with them..
    1. Change strip to black & White Hoops and play Blaydon Races before every game.
    2. Change nickname to The Interbreads and ban cheesy chips.
    3. Offer free entry to all away fans, and hire Jimmy Nail as Manager.
    What would others do????

    Ah yeah, that’s right… She put in for 6 different clubs.
    Wasn’t really interested in the first place.
