  • Fri, 13 Nov 2020 14:00:17 +0000: Sunderland agree takeover deal with 22-year-old Louis-Dreyfus heir - Sunderland | The Guardian
    • Owner Stewart Donald to retain 15% of his shares
    • Director Juan Sartori part of new consortium

    The Sunderland owner, Stewart Donald, has agreed a deal to sell the club to a consortium led by minority shareholder Juan Sartori and Kyril Louis-Dreyfus – the 22-year-old son of former Marseille owner Robert – but looks set to retain 15% of his shares.

    Donald has been actively trying to sell Sunderland since the start of the year and entered into an exclusivity period with an anonymous buyer a few weeks ago. The Guardian can reveal that Sartori – the Uruguayan businessman and politician who owns 20% of the club and sits on the board – is behind the move to bring in Louis-Dreyfus having made contact with him six months ago about the possibility of acquiring a majority stake.

  • Sun, 08 Nov 2020 08:00:34 +0000: Torment and catharsis: Sunderland's David Corner and the 1985 League Cup - Sunderland | The Guardian

    An error at Wembley in the 1985 final led to years of bullying. But a play about his life has enabled David Corner to share his experiences

    The second half was a few seconds old. Dave Watson, the Norwich centre-back, pumped a long ball into the corner. There seemed little danger. The 18-year-old Sunderland centre-back David Corner tried to shepherd the ball out for a goal-kick but John Deehan nipped round him, kept the ball in play and cut it back to Mick Channon. He was tackled but the ball broke for Asa Hartford and his shot flicked off the chest of Gordon Chisholm, wrong-footing the goalkeeper, Chris Turner, and scuttling in at the near post. It was the only goal of the 1985 Milk Cup final and would come to define Corner’s life.

  • Wed, 07 Oct 2020 17:23:16 +0000: The Guardian view on lower league football: unsafe in a broken market | Editorial - Sunderland | The Guardian

    Clubs playing to empty stands are in grave financial peril and the government appears oblivious to dangers beyond the Premier League spotlight

    Sport has become a touchstone during the pandemic. Whether the continuation or otherwise of sports the British hold dear deserves to assume so central a place is another matter. A game is after all only a game, and is of little consequence compared with how hospitals, care homes, schools and universities are coping. But from the government’s wish that televised football recommence to boost the nation’s spirits, to the fraught discussion of which clubs and leagues will survive, the question of sport’s future has been inescapable.

    The government has, as in most areas, managed to achieve the worst of all worlds. It has permitted the return of sport but without fans, making many clubs nonviable. Hence the long-running argument over whether the Premier League should bail out the rest of football’s creaking pyramid. There were hopes this might be resolved this week, but as with most things Covid-related – the arts bailout, the future of cinemas, aviation, the night-time economy – there is a stalemate, leaving many organisations to muddle through while the government sits on its hands.

  • Thu, 10 Sep 2020 07:00:36 +0000: League One 2020-21 season preview - Sunderland | The Guardian

    Peterborough and Sunderland hope to put last season behind them, Oxford and Portsmouth also look contenders but Wigan’s and Hull’s struggles seem set to continue

    It is fair to say Peterborough were miffed when they were bumped out of the play-offs on points per game – “this is the worst day of my life because I think we’ve been cheated” said a typically understated Barry Fry, the director of football – but they will have a chance if they can carry on where they left off. The division’s most prolific side won seven of their last nine matches, scoring four times in four of those and overcoming promoted Wycombe and Rotherham along the way. The £6m sale of top-scorer Ivan Toney was inevitable but the return of Jonson Clarke-Harris from Bristol Rovers, coupled with the emergence of Ricky Jade-Jones, 17, and Flynn Clarke, 20, gives Posh reasons to be cheerful.
