    stunned, dazed and still can't quite believe it!!
    Character building mate, worth it in the long run. Look at us in the 90's, who'd have thought then we'd be where we are now? Could be worse, you could be Newcastle or even rag fans!!

    May 1998: City relegated to 3rd Tier.
    May 1999: "it's Dickov again...can you believe it?"
    May 2011: FA Cup Win.
    May 2012: Premier League champions.

    Wouldn't it be nice if you got a parallel run?

    Hope your kids enjoy the day and Coleman somehow manages to turn it around, I had a good drink with some of your fans after the league cup final near Wembley and they were all sound.

    Bournemouth might be a better example.
    2008/09 won last game to stay in the football league.
    Administration and points deductions follow. Eddie Howe manages and leaves for Burnley whilst Lee Bradbury takes over.
    October 2012/13, still in league 2 and near the foot of the table, Eddie Howe comes back. Not only does he save them from relegation he gets them promoted as well.
    2014/15 promoted to the PL.
    If Bournemouth can do it, I’m sure Sunderland can.

    I think I’m right in saying that Kevin Horlock was with City for six seasons and was either promoted or relegated in five of them.

    That’s what you call a rollercoaster!
