Trying to put the block on the 1973 Wembley heroes is a vote loser - that I can guarantee!
I fully agree, I'm glad they are showing their true colours.

A dream come true but we will not achieve that within the next 5 years.

A small piece of silverware would be canny in the next couple of years, like a Mickey Mouse cup.

The proposals failed to gain universal support however, with the council’s Liberal Democrat group attempting to derail the plans after baulking at the estimated £35,000 cost
Shocking and I am not having that like :o
The problem we have is that they do a good job in Millfield and we only just managed to rid ourselves of the Labour Party.
If I grab hold of one of them I will let them know this is not on.

The Liberals want to save 35 grand and lose the support of Sunderland fans on the way, vote them out.

Vote them out in Millfield and get some crap in - no way!
Just let them know your concerns and they will adjust their stance.
