Sunderland’s Manager In Waiting Spotted They Were Rubbish Early On

8 years ago

Happily, Sunderland are making a determined effort to make the running of Newcastle United look almost sensible.

After giving Paolo (I’m not a fascist) Di Canio free rein to cause havoc over the summer and then go to war with his own players, the mackems are yet to confirm the identity of their new manager.

The man expected to be named is Gus Poyet and he has given his reasons for being best man for the job:

“It is a team with lots of backroom staff and scouting staff from Italy.

It is a new team, very international, it would be very convenient for the new person to speak various languages as you wouldn’t continually need to have translators. That is something that helps me because I’ve got that ability.

I planned that over the first matches of the season I’d pay a lot of attention to teams I thought could be in trouble.

Of course I watch Manchester, Arsenal, Chelsea but there was a group of teams who if they didn’t start well, I thought that I could have a chance.

I was watching Sunderland a lot!”

When being multi-lingual is a big selling point then I think you are already on dodgy ground but I loved Poyet’s comments about keeping an eye on teams he thought would prove to be rubbish and Sunderland seemingly top/bottom of the pile!
