Brilliant for John, looks like an excellent move he made.

Please don't book me Admin, it will ruin my life.

Yeah, really pleased for Potts. He's a good coach and an absolutely brilliant guy. All the younger players he coached were gutted when he left.

In spite of all the dog's abuse he endured during his short, fateful spell as manager, he found it quite a wrench to leave the Pars and had to be convinced by his extended family that it was too good an opportunity to turn down.

I was speaking to John's father-in-law last month and he said Sunderland is an absolutely massive club - on a par with Celtic and Therangers. That was echoed by Jack Ross in the Daily Record interview the OP has linked.

They're a big club, but sorry they're nowhere near Celtic or Rangers

First there was nothing, then there was...The Big Nat

For fan base not in same league as Celtic and Ranger. Always felt sorry for him in his time as manager here.

Would rather be a part of the Sunderland set up than the OF.

Netflix are currently filming them for a second season of ‘Sunderland till I die’; so will be good to see their progress. The first season airs 14th December.

It's not just purely about fan base though. It's their a whole set up. They are a massive club. If they played in the Scottish Premiership, they'd be right up there challenging for the title with the two Glasgow clubs.

Having spent a couple of days at Sunderland, including watching a match vs Everton, I was left with the impression of a club as big as Rangers or Celtic.
Big modern stadium, lots of local fans despite the area being a bit rundown, great rivalry with Newcastle to rival the Old Firm but with less bigotry.

So definitely, Potter is in a good place.

Knew jack Ross and Potts would do a decent job there, they had reached rock bottom and had cleared out but a few of the high earners so perfect time to join the club.

Potts did very well with the youths but I’m yet to see anyone who has come through who is prepared to put thier foot in and mix it. They are all a bit soft and not prepared to be physical.

Do we not make youngsters with an edge anymore? What’s wrong with the odd impetuous challenge to let the opposition know your there and he’s going to get a sore one.

After admin and we had to bring a few in and not one stood up to it. Before anyone says, only just turned 17 year old McCarthy at Hamilton went through us like like a dose of the skits, it’s not down to age it’s mentality.

We’re soft as a club tho, Talbot aside who have we had who is prepared to go through someone when required? Maybe Jackson but no one else in that team is tackling.

Just sitting here drenched in my own positivity! AJ is gone!

That’s some effort. To use a thread about Potter and Ross to have another ridiculous dig at our club.

AJ is reluctant to play our youths. Smith Gill McCann to name a few. Maybe not ready but I don’t think there is one AJ has played other than Smith who was eventually shipped out.

We're a soft club. I've heard it all now.
