HULL rugby league supremo Adam Pearson is heading a consortium trying to buy crisis club Sunderland.

Pearson and his team have approached Ellis Short and are now one of two live bidders for the Black Cats, who have been relegated to League One.

When talking about these in future can you please use the term “league one Sunderland” or “third tier Sunderland” - it’s much more amusing for us [8)]

You guys have to admit, the SOL is a fantastic stadium.

It is literally as if Sunderland spies have studied the form of other new stadiums and then purposely built something bigger and better.

A tremendous selling point for any investor.

Instead of closing the top tier will you now be closing 3 sides?

Bigger and better? You can't even give tickets away now to make it look full.

Bigger yes, better nah.

Its like they had no imagination so just looked a few miles south and copied one.

Fantastic stadiums are like the emirates, the new stamford bridge when its built, wembley, spurs new ground, anfield, old trafford and the etihad to name some. SOL is bland like most stadiums built like that with no imagination including the riverside. Just built for a purpose not architectural design.

As above. The Mackems do not have a fantastic stadium. Newcastle on the other hand do.

Sunderland have spent the last ten years convincing themselves they're a big club. Just because the give away thousands of tickets and average 40K doesn't mean that.

I'm 38 and for the whole of my life they've been a joke (apart from a couple of seasons) and haven't done anything of real note.

Going N - ours was the first of this design we pioneered it and so when we built it it was revolutionary unique and original. The rest copied from us including SOL.

Newcastle's might be great feat of civil engineering but truly awful for an away spectator.

I cannot accept "Stadium of Light" and the name still stinks of poor amateur marketing after all these years but it is a better ground than SJP and Riverside.

Not a fan of St James' tbf. I live in Newcastle and like a lot of things here, but the stadium isn't one.

I've been a few times for non Boro matches (olympics and magic weekend RL) and find it gloomy and oppressive: where the Rest version goes for white railings, they go for grey concerete. Also, no light gets in from the back of the stands.

It's a great location, but being inside it always reminds me that redeveloping St James was the clubs second choice, an d I can see why.

"Why do you all hate Sunderland ?"

I don't hate them. I hope they have a good time in League One. You'd think they'll be back in the Championship before too long.

I also really like that they give thousands of tickets away for free. All the clubs should. [^]

Spectacular most certainly is not the word. A lot of grounds are called souless these days. The SOL is the perfect example of this phrase. Vast swaves of empty faded pink seats. No passion or atmosphere. The place is awful.

Im not a fan of SJP either. Although the architects hands were tied when redeveloping it the design is awful.

Theres always a lot of conflicting opinions amongst supporters when clubs decide to build a new ground. New stadiums are often called souless with no history or heritage. Its upto the fans to make these new stadiums home and create an atmosphere. Its only when you revisit some of the older grounds like elland road that you relise how desperately shabby they are.

Adam Pearson.

MD at Leeds and then went to Hull. He's always the front man for other people. And not a very good one. Trust me on this.

I wouldn't wish him on the Toon never mind teh Mackems.

Agree. I think the main problem with the new grounds is that they're designed to maximise revenue so something always suffers.

The plans at Spurs and Chelsea look amazing but from a fan's point of view?? Not sure.

What makes many older grounds unique is that they’re in built up areas.

This, in turn has impacted on how the ground has developed. Old Trafford and St James are good example of this which have led to their lopsidedness.

Leicester’s old ground was an extreme example, Kenilworth Road maybe the most obvious example amongst existing stadia.

Modern stadia are built on open sites and therefore gravitate towards the ideal shape due to lack of restriction in their design

zorro i agree it was revolutionary and unique at the time but now its just a bland ground that even the likes of darlington managed to have before they crumbled.

it serves a purpose and has enough seats for the support we have. we also don't need or require a stadium that stands out in its current location. it certainly doesn't need to overcome any engineering triumphs like building over say an underground railway like the new stamford bridge. although if my memory serves me right we did have to excavate an old WW2 bomb

Well, remember almost all the old grounds started out looking the same: 3 bank of open terracing, and a 2 tiered stand. Almost all of them were built by the same man.

That’s just the starting point though: give it 50 years and all these grounds that look the same will have developed differently.

"The Mackems do not have a fantastic stadium. Newcastle on the other hand do."

Sid James Park is a terrible ground, lop-sided and at the back of the Leazes End you are a pitch length away from the centre spot and one and a half pitch lengths away from the gallowgate end goal, you need a telescope.

I am impressed by the Stadium of Light’s colour changing seats, gradually transforming through time from red through varying shades of pink and almost to white. Makes the Allianz Arena’s colour changing stadium look amateurish.......
