I donât think thatâs the case at all. The hole this summer is 20m.
Next summer theyâll have a lot of players like Naismith, Klose, McGovern, Jarvis & 1 or 2 others who are still earning PL money off of their wage bill and theyâll probably have a budget similar to ours.
Their local press are insinuating that a finish of mid-table next season would represent a good season. I think theyâre fully aware that they could be in trouble with the lower league foreign gamble that theyâre taking. They also have a lack of home nation players now that I believe needs resolving as you need a set number within your squad?
Next season theyâre banking on having a clean slate with all their High earners then off of the wage bill and a proper chance to then rebuild.
Interested to know how they'll keep their category 1 academy open when theyâre skint...
I think Hurst was always one of if not the leading candidate for the job all along.
I actually think heâs an excellent appointment. You my manager with a history of working to a budget & doing well. By all accounts players enjoy playing for him as well. Not an all out attacking manager but certainly less pragmatic than Mick!
What a load of rubbish. When recruiting for a managers role there will ALWAYS be competition and other clubs looking for managers. Itâs not really a case of reacting/panicking because another club is looking for a manager.
It would appear that Hurst is the number one choice, even if you donât agree with that!
"So unless there is some major skulduggery going on then itâs nonsense. To hold talks with Jack, there we would have to grant permission, as has been the case with Ipswich and Barnsley recently. But we've had no contact from Sunderland at all."
