Ah Stevie you can't be serious. Sure sundIreland were trying to do exactly what you say the other teams did over decades. What was wrong with that. It was working as well til keano and Triggs jumped ship.

Im not bothered either way but you or I are hardly local fans either.

Roy Keane was the bandwagon, Sunderland were merely the wheels.

Nope

Doubt back in the 1950's and 60's United or Celtic needed to market their games to nouveau fans who wanted a bandwagon

The SunderIreland project was embarassing

Yup

It was cringeworthy

That column particularly comical

United and Celtic attracted fans due to their sheer glamour. Irelands best players went over to play in the European Cup. Many irish emigrated to Glasgow and manchester. I don't think they needed to market it the way clubs years later did it

Not to say these clubs don't do that now

But sunderland did it on a very tenous basis

and it fell apart straight away

What about young John Egan as well.

By the way what's the betting O'Shea will be fit for Andorra but injured for Armenia. He's some bluffer, he will be injured for all Funderlands games against the big sides this season and he'll play against the so called shit sides

Ah yeah. I have an interest in any Irish player in general and then also the club.

I keep a watching brief on the Irish over there as well, but the Funderland thing was a joke eventhough I'm a huge Keane fan, it was too good to be true when Saint niall approached him to be manager especially after Saipan, but it just shows you what a coniving fucker Quinn is in the business sense
