Fan Letters: A lack of communication by Sunderland AFC frustrates fans!


Dear Roker Report,

Hello guys, can you publish something about the comprehensive shut-out by the club to the enthusiasts about Portugal dates?

We’re gambling on rumours and it’s disgraceful. No confirmation of dates, venue or opposition however and it’s so late on the working day that bargains have been missed out on and people today simply cannot get holidays from operate. It is stunning genuinely and the club are stonewalling us.

Lee Adams

Ed’s Note [Rich]: We’re publishing this letter, and I’d suggest you call Pink & White Military and the BLC. It does type of come to feel a bit like all people at the club has been on holiday break until they’ve been engaged on the working the live shows at the Stadium of Mild.

The purchaser-facing things of Sunderland AFC need to have a huge overhaul – they are missing out on commercial chances. It would seem that absence of the two a potential inside the communications workforce and an entrepreunrial sprit are missing from the club ideal now.

Pricey Roker Report,

Why just cannot I invest in my son a Sunderland shirt from the club?

I have been compelled to buy a retro featuring from a web page on the web. What a joke. I’d fairly my income went to SAFC. Why have they produced it so tricky?

Solutions on the back of a stamp…

John Youthful

Ed’s Note [Rich]: I had the exact same issue with my lad the very last time we ended up at the Stadium, it would seem the powers that be below-ordered from Nike and were being delighted not to been have extra inventory. Perhaps its that facts-pushed business design that they had been supposidly adopting – the computer system mentioned no a lot more shirts!

My son was content to decide for a retro package and finished up with a wonderful just one with Vaux throughout the front and the previous badge which I feel is modelled on the 1990-1992 Hummel kit. At minimum it will not be out of date in a several weeks time!

Expensive Roker Report,

Just listened to your newest ‘Best XI’ podcast. A excellent pay attention as normally. It’s pointless arguing above this kind of teams, as it’s all viewpoints and a bit of pleasurable. What does make a distinction I guess is the decided on formation. Our greatest servants in League 1 would make it possible for a lot more fans’ favorites to make it.

Individually, I’d always go with 2 up front, as in Gabiadini/ Gates or Phillips/Quinn. Two strikers are superior than a single!

Here’s a subject: Quinn or Stewart!? My vote would be with The Mighty Quinn.

John Wilson

Ed’s Take note [Rich]: I’d unquestionably go with Quinn, he carried out at the best level for club and place… but Stewart undoubtedly has the opportunity to do the very same. As for the podcasts, I’m positive we’ll be recording some enjoyable information over the subsequent number of months.
