Fan Letters: “We need protest, revolt, something revolutionary - question is, will we do it?”

“Simon Grayson is not good enough and has got to go, but the people that need to be shown for the jokers that they are reside in the boardroom”, says Roker Report reader Adam MacPherson.

Dear Roker Report,

Surely Simon Grayson must leave today.

There is probably only one training session before we face Bolton. There is no way that anything can be remedied in one session, therefore he may as well leave.

Give Robbie Stockdale temporary charge before looking for a new man. I still don't think that this is a relegation side - but the longer we continue to drop points the more likely it is looking.

Dear Roker Report,

Not since 1987 have I felt as bad about the situation that my club finds itself in.

And my question is this - why are we, the supporters, doing nothing about it?

We need protest, revolt. Something revolutionary.

Instead we pay our money, sit on our hands and take it.

Martin Bain, Ellis Short... they deserve our ire.

This club WILL be relegated to the third division under their watch. Simon Grayson is not good enough and has got to go, but the people that need to be shown for the jokers that they are reside in the boardroom (or in Ellis’ case, a plush Scottish castle).

Question is... will anyone do anything about it?

Dear Roker Report,

My two boys have been going to the matches since they were both four.

My oldest is 14 and my youngest is 10, and they have been season ticket holders from the start. Sadly, the youngest does not want to go anymore, as in his words ‘if the players are not bothered why should I be?’.

My whole family have been loyal fans through good times and bad... mostly bad. But the whole club is an absolute joke. Sadly, I think that the club will lose a generation of fans unless they get themselves in order.

I feel that Sunderland AFC is a rudderless ship. We are drifting into obscurity and it will take a hell of a long time to get back to where this club should be.
