  1. Nothing new just a summary of today’s quote from UAE hospital radio then.

    Can’t really call it journalism when you copy and paste quotes from a radio DJ who could be making things up.

    There is not a enough time in the transfer markget for you lot to make signings that you need,evan if you get a takeover if that happens,becasue of that fat **** head and his con men wasting the club,s time as a Sunderland fan.our ex chairman Bob Murray should keep his shut saying Eills Short making Ashley good,The answer is no,they both shocking managed our clubs badly you guys.Selling players at wrong time,when you have no manager right now,it really shows how it is now.

  8. The headline reads BZG release Takeover statement….. And at 17:15 pm it would come across as something new but as I stated in my comment it wasn’t anything but some small radio station in UAE claiming to have a statement from the potential owners. Please read all the comments and see how frustrated fans are with the situation and the media over use of articles to gain clicks. What is the need to wind fans up as you don’t know anymore than you did this morning and that was dubious. Bring us something concrete and true straight from the horses mouth.
