    There is no way you would give up hundreds of thousands of pounds to do "the right thing".

    Always make me laugh when football fans say this. If City offered me a £70k a week contract and then struggled for money, i would not give up a penny.

    City of course
    He did the right thing for himself and his family They gave him the contract, just because it’s the football industry and not another one with less profile doesn’t make it any different. I also think the way the documentary showed the situation was very one sided. Anyhow did he not do the “right thing” at the end of the season and terminate his contract.

    Yes, I think they've gave it out as nearer 2.5 k away fans, which is a cracking turnout...

    And yes....it was a goal, ....although admittedly, I was highly delighted it wasn't given

    Fans are class but I just love ‘big’ clubs with big fan bases suffering- each passing year watching Leeds stay in the Championship gives me a nice fuzzy glow feeling. Also love Newcastle to get relegated and of course Liverpool to slip up and not win anything

    As a Hammer you might not have the liking that many City fans have for Sunderland fans. I intend to watch it but I’ll be reflecting on our own bad years, I’ll enjoy their passion but certainly not their pain.

    If you believe the main forum, then you're in luck at the minute.

    En Why? See.
    Enjoyed it, but think the Rodwell contract situation was not fairly depicted at all and was entirely shown from the POV of Sunderland and the fans.
