Sunderland AFC

Not sure if anyone will care, but this could be huge national football news (hopefully).

Sunderland AFC are close to being bought by 3 billionaires - one if which being Michael Dell, the CEO of DELL, who happens to have a net worth of $37bn, double that of Man City's Sheikh Mansour (according to Google). The other two are billionaires too, who are close business partners to Dell. We already have a billionaire shareholder (Juan Sartori) that is the Son-In-Law of The AS Monaco (multi-billionaire) owner, meaning we'd have four multi-billionaires on our board.

According to reports, the current main shareholder and his business partner, will keep some shares in the club and will still handle the day to day running, which many fans are more than happy at.

The foundations are really starting to set.

After what feels like an eternity of hurt, I pray to God that this goes through.

You've got to feel that the NETFLIX doc had some part to play in this.

The Sunderland Message Boards are unsuprisingly in absolute meltdown and I myself can't contain my excitement.

Please don't ruin my happiness and excitement by pointing out faults.

MODS please delete this thread when it inevitably becomes public knowledge that the deal is off.
