Fan Letters: More criticism of the local press; & another email from a concerned fan

In today’s Fan Letters, angry Sunderland supporters Richard and Mal have got a couple of things to get off their chests. Got something to say? Email us: - we’ll include your message in the next edition.

Dear Roker Report,

Is there one reporter who covers Sunderland AFC that will write something objective about the current situation at the club?

It's always the same old boring drivel that a 12 year old could write.

Martin Bain must have been considering firing Simon Grayson before he pulled the trigger.

So, surely he had a short list of candidates ready to interview. If so, why is it taking so long?

If he didn’t have a list, he should be fired for his continued ineptitude – you can’t put the blame for that on the owner.

You have an owner who wants to sell the club - a club doing well would surely attract a better price than a club doing poorly.

With that in mind, why did Ellis Short give Simon Grayson pennies to invest before the season begun? I’m aware that the finances are in a shocking mess but a few million could have made all the difference and not really affected the balance sheet that much.

Let’s read something objective, please, instead of "It's an international break now, giving the Sunderland hierarchy plenty of time before their next game to find a new boss", written by Craig Johns in the Chronicle on 11th of November, a WEEK after Grayson was fired!

Dear Roker Report,

OMG - me and rest of the Sunderland faithful are getting really fed up with the way our once great club is being ran.

Rubbish management from the top to the bottom.

The sooner these two idiots leave the better.

For the last five managerial appointments it has taken frigging ages to appoint someone... FFS, come on Sunderland, make us proud once again.

Sunderland till I die.

Mal Patterson
