From a SAFC Fan Staying Away Until Moyes Goes: ‘so Much Wrong’

Paul Summerside: ‘me on matchdays until Moyes goes’

Monsieur Salut writes: as his pals and mine on Facebook speculate about a dream managerial pairing of Roy Keane and John O’Shea to restore Sunderland’s fortunes, Paul Summerside – an occasional contributor throughout the season – offers what he says will be his ‘Final View from the Avenue’. Paul feels David Moyes has brought nothing to Sunderland AFC and says he will not attend a match as long as remains in charge. I understand the anger and share it; I find Moyes difficult to warm to but I also cannot believe a good manager at Everton manager can suddenly, after poor experiences in Manchester and Spain, turn into a bad one at Sunderland. But here’s Paul view …

My mind is completely cabbaged at the moment.

There is so much wrong with the club from top to bottom, that it’s hard to know where to start.

Short’s stewardship, the redundancies, Bain’s cost-cutting, transfer policy, Moyes’s “management”, backroom staff, training, injuries and – for first time – the fans’ apparent acceptance of it all.

The whole club from top to bottom is five years out of time – a position the fans of Leeds, Derby, Bolton et al, know all so well.

The only positive I see going forward, is our half-decent Under 23 squad, a support that will again travel the length and breadth of the county, and the fact that Newcastle and Brighton and possibly Leeds wont be in the Championship.

These three things give us a chance to bounce back, the stumbling block of course being the current manager and his inability to instil an ounce of positivity into anything he does.

With him gone, and a go-getter in place – Parkinson, Wagner, Stam, Carvalhal, even Keano – there’s always hope.

From a SAFC fan staying away until Moyes goes: ‘so much wrong’Sample:

Given enough time, and the power to spend wisely after selling Pickford, Kone, Ndong and Khazri, Moyes could yet be the man to spearhead a revival and, with it, a period of stability unseen in Sunderland’s modern history.

But that process needs to start immediately. Even a fighting finish to a demoralising season would be too little, too late to save Sunderland from the drop. But without it, holding faith in Moyes’ ability to oversee a successful rebuild might well be a minority position.

“It’s been coming for five years” is the latest soundbite ringing around the doors, as some kind of justification for our predicament.

Well it hasn’t. Its started last September, has been coming for five months and has been confirmed in the last five weeks.

Some will say it’s been allowed to happen by Ellis Short as relegation, parachute payment and trimming of the club’s outgoings will make it easier to sell the club.

But as some have already pointed out to me on several occasions, it doesn’t matter that we’re relegated as “there’s nothing else to do on a Saturday”, or “we’re happy to just turn up regardless”.

They are right, because it’s what we do, and I will happy to join them once Moyes has gone.

In conclusion….the worst season since McCarthy cannot end quickly enough.

Signing off with a heavy heart.
