All hail St Niall!

All hail St Niall!

May 1st has been declared 'St Niall's day' by Sunderland supporters wishing to back Niall Quinn's takeover bid.

Those wishing to show their support for the big man are urged to turn up to the game against Arsenal dressed head to toe in Irish paraphernalia!

Here's the official press release from the Save our Sunderland group;

Save our Sunderland has declared May the 1st ‘St Niall’s Day’

By attending the Stadium of Light and creating a positive enjoyable
atmosphere we will show the world what Quinny and his consortium already know - that despite our miserable season our spirit and passion hasn’t been broken. Bring an Irish flag, an Irish shirt, a Guinness hat, a banner showing support for Quinn – come dressed in Disco
pants or even just in green!

Why has SOS declared him a Saint? Why does he deserve our support?

Well here are a few extracts from recent interviews with Quinny

'I am afraid of nothing at that football club,'

“If this club goes right we will be bigger than Newcastle”.

“The Sunderland people are just exceptional people”

“In my 20 years all my fun was had at Sunderland”

“It's a very special place”

“The people's spirit shone through

'I wouldn't be looking to do this at any other place in the world,'

“The club is the city's identity”

“It's an incredible, passionate place, one that's been hurt over the last
year or so”.

“My worries now wouldn't be financial at this stage - unless Sunderland go
mad. I believe there's a will there from the people in charge to do the
best for the club”

St Quinn about us “the potential, it is the people”.

Save our Sunderland like all Sunderland fans are delighted that Niall Quinn
has following weeks of speculation finally confirmed his interest in buying
Sunderland Association Football Club.

Lets show Quinny and his consortium that the passion on Wearside still burns
bright. Lets turn the Stadium into a cathedral for Quinny. Lets have Niall
Quinn’s Disco pants bouncing off the roof!

All very good. I hope he's got enough to spend some money on players. By the way, i think you'll lose by at least 3 goals and you'll get very wet. :)
