Looks like Charlie has got his wish.

Well maybe not his exact wish of owning OUFC but certainly a wish to exercise his ego by getting involved in owning a football.

Just the club happens to be in the north east and plays in red and white!

It turns out Charlie is listed as a director as part of the company that is taking over Sunderland.

No wonder he has been very quiet on here in recent weeks.

I look forward to the short away trip next season to Water Eaton to watch OUFC play Sunderland.

I expect Chris Wilder is fairly low on the list of managerial candidates.
I actually saw a report suggestin that CW could be the next Sunderland manager. You never know quite how close these reports are but ...

Is that a paid position?

Good luck to Charlie he is obviously very close to Stewart Donald and as Bradders stated yesterday in a post,
“ I also don't blame Stewart for wanting his trusted lieutenants in charge, people he can trust and have worked with him for years, they're all quality people. They'll do a decent job” .

Stewart had a group of friends who he trusts and obviously Charlie is one of them. Just think that group could have been in charge at the Kassam, I wonder what went wrong?

Will Sunderland be moving to Water Eaton any time soon? I hear the transport links are fantastic and it's easier to get to than Sunnerland!

In all seriousness fair play to them, if they can turn it around they will have a big club to handle. And there the comparisons end as to what could have been here. Two very different beasts. £25 million parachute payment isn’t a bad way to have to start a new season.

I’m only saddened that this is the first time anyone has mentioned his full name is Charles harry finlayson methven .
