    Never really understood what makes Sunderland a big club. Is it the big stadium that is usually half empty? Is it the fact that they get about 10% of their population watching them? It certainly isn’t their honours list is it?

    I can fully understand you not understanding it Egg, but you may want to check out Sunderland’s full honours list before you make a statement like that.

    Football wasn’t invented in 1992 by sky.

    Come on. Explain it to me. What makes Sunderland, who last won a trophy in 1973, a big club?

    They won the ‘BBC Team Personality of the Year’ award in 1973 :ohmy:

    2 FA Cups and 6 league titles (your last one in 1936) doesn’t make you a big club in 2019.

    On that basis, PNE would be one of the biggest clubs in the land.

    In that case I take it back. MASSIVE.

    Like I said, delusions of grandeur with some ‘God Complex’ thrown in for good measure!

    They are just a club with a huge drawing population and area with no competition for support. That is what makes them a big club.

    They are just down the road from us so have the same pull away that we have – United, City, even Warriors.

    I think Mr Garswood is mixed up. I was talking about Sunderland’s geography and no competition in the region other than Newcastle for support.
