Sunderland TID
#1

Good series,
Martin Bain made me think I could have done his job quite easily and seemed just to pass the blame constantly to the manager or the owner,Should expect the worse and hope for the best which Sunderland obviously didn’t when they were in the prem.
Grayson got stitched up aswell I think, was never going to succeed with the goal posts always being moved.
Some of the players came across unprofessional in general accept Jonny Williams and Honeyman in the first series.

The second series I actually liked there set up and how they started breaking even after all the cuts etc but I don’t believe they were there for their Love of Sunderland more like to make a quick buck(But the owner did seem to care)Charlie was disrespectful and pretty fake I thought and quite  snobby.
If Only Maja hadn’t left....

Do think a City til I die series would bring in more viewers though!

Did you know that Stewart Donald's cousin is a City fan? Smile

There seem to be a plethora of football reality shows now but the way this has been filmed puts it head and shoulders above the rest. I watched the one about Leeds, or started to, but it was just so boring. That said, I think the attraction of STID comes from the fact that they're shite. The third series where they turned it around didn't seem so good.

I was watching and thinking it’s almost like the season was panning out for the reality show!
Do his cousin still watch us?
Thought it was funny him talking with a tinge of a Gloucester acent(definitely more than Oxford) and then switched to Charlie who was a cockney with an Oxford acent!
There’s going to be another series I think after this season (you just couldn’t script it!)

Who are they? Mark and Karen?

It's an enjoyable series, but I lost it at the fan confronting the chairman outside Wembley after they'd lost their second match there in a month, saying "Are we ever going to get better?". What a hard life those Sunderland fans must have - playing at Wembley twice in a month and losing by the finest of margins each time. Reality check needed.

Yep Smile

I thought the beauty of it was that they were documenting a team that was losing.

There's a thing about Pep & Man City on Amazon that I haven't even clicked on because it looks so sterile. Winning is boring.

Not when it's your team, and you're not used to it.

The one about Man City is good but it was obvious that it was a documentary made by Man City,STID is more authentic.

Sorry for bringing this Thread back up. I have just recently watched both Series of 'Sunderland Till I Die', for the first time. Sunderland (like other ex Premier League Clubs currently in League One) have gone from one extreme to the other. When they were in the Premier League, they had Managers like Martin O' Neill, and had a pretty good team with players like, John O' Shea, Wes Brown, Sebastian Larsson, Jermain Defoe, Darren Bent etc.
 Jack Rodwell seemed to be the Black Sheep (not Black Cat) of the Club. Not playing, go to the Training Ground, do Training, Gym Work, have a meal at the Training Ground, go back home, collect £70,000 a week.
 As Joe said, perhaps Sunderland supporters may need a reality check. Must be terrible following a Club that used to play at Roker Park, and move to a fantastic 40,000 seater Stadium of Light.

Andrew Adebowale, Hannah, Hoskins, Kirkup, Mainwaring, SYMONDS, Tucker, Wollen.
