‘Pointless’, ‘Embarrassment’ – Many Sunderland fans react to new CEO’s end-of-season claim



New Sunderland CEO Jim Rodwell has claimed that the North East club owe it to their fans, players and the game to ensure the 2019/20 campaign is completed on the pitch, which has drawn a negative reaction from many Black Cats fans.

EFL fixtures have been suspended for nearly two months and it has been reported that the League One and League Two seasons are set to be curtailed.

According to The Athletic, clubs will be given a vote on how to finish the season, with a weighted points-per-game system the favourite proposal.

A host of League One sides appear driven to ensure that doesn’t happen as six clubs have joined together to highlight their determination to complete the current campaign on the pitch.

Peterborough United owner Darragh MacAnthony took to Twitter yesterday to post a statement that made that stance clear on behalf of the Posh, Fleetwood Town, Oxford United, Ipswich Town, Portsmouth, and Sunderland.

Via the North East club’s official Twitter account, Rodwell made a statement of his own to address the situation.

Rodwell was appointed last month and doesn’t appear to have won over the supporters yet.

His claim has drawn a negative reaction from many fans of the club, who have questioned the stance and the new CEO.
