Supporter Letters: “No player is even bigger than the club!”

Pricey Roker Report,

This deal has now been negotiated for about 18 months. No participant is even larger than the club.

Clearly he is dragging his feet. It is time for the club to make that determination for him.

The club have to now transfer checklist him, giving the message, around the near season. He is not irreplaceable and other targets are now getting sort.

This could focus his thoughts on the place he wishes to be!


Ed’s Take note [Chris]: I think this is in reference to Ross Stewart, John – and who appreciates exactly where the current negotiations are but it’s an attention-grabbing one from the two sides. Stewart will convert 27 in excess of the summer time and taking into consideration he has built the action up late in his job to a placement in which huge-income could be attained, nobody must blame him if he’s trying to get the very best deal for himself.

It’s also been a time blighted by personal injury so it is a thing to be taken into account for the participant, Sunderland and everyone potential purchaser – but I suspect he’ll indication on for longer with the Lads throughout the summer months.

Pricey Roker Report,

To start with let’s give credit wherever its thanks, this squad as a total carried out way above expectations.

The new lads all look to have performed their part, nevertheless major or smaller, the older (much more senior) players have shown they can action up for the most section, and gamers like Luke O’Nien have shocked ever the most ardent supporters with his means to manage numerous positions at aa increased amount.

There can be no avoiding the truth that two of our most consistently performed players are also among our weakest. Dan Neil and Lynden Gooch regularly give the ball away with weak passes time and yet again. You just can’t argue that they run their hearts out every game, but we should deliver in improved gamers in the summer season (or swap them from in).

We require a ‘keeper to preserve pushing Patterson (he has won me more than as the period went on), at minimum one particular a lot more striker, a right again and yet another huge central defender.

In any case, onwards and upwards for subsequent time.


Ed’s Notice [Chris]: It’s easy to ignore that for several of the squad it is the to start with time they’ve played at this degree, like in the case of Dan Neil, the mastering curve was steep this time in what is his 2nd total year as a first crew regular. All people youthful gamers will have an additional year beneath their belts and will with any luck , develop as we do as a club.

I’m searching forward to see what gamers the recruitment staff carry in next – it must be an exciting summer time.

Dear Roker Report,

I’m upset we have opted not to indicator Michut but do fully grasp. Great footballer but just not large plenty of, and simply cannot see how he will establish far more physically.

Imagine a move to a league overseas will go well with him far more.

Ed’s Be aware [Chris]: It seems the way Pierre Ekwah flourished on his introduction to the initial group may well have had one thing to do with the decision not to consider Édouard Michut in a long term deal, quite possibly mixed with targets we’re looking to add in central midfield.

There is also the risk that Michut didn’t extravagant generating the go a lengthy-expression a person or requested for as well considerably revenue, but he did a position in a cracking season and we would like him all the most effective.
