Short Changed - Second Edition


SHORT CHANGED
The Highs & Lows of SAFC During 20 Years at the SOL
By Chris Weatherspoon

It is twenty years since Sunderland AFC moved from Roker Park to a sparkling new home. The Stadium of Light opened its doors in 1997 and was, at that time, the third largest club football ground in England. It was a mammoth statement, one made all the more ambitious by the fact its inhabitants would be plying their trade in the second tier of English football.

‘Short-Changed’ takes a thematic look at the past two decades of Sunderland AFC, centring around the three men who have held the role as chairman in the Stadium of Light’s young history. Where Sir Bob Murray could point to the new home as his legacy, and Niall Quinn to his saving of the club from ruin, Ellis Short is devoid of much to shout about. During his time at the club, he has overseen the wasting of huge sums of money, and stood idly by as the club’s name has been tarnished by scandal and controversy.

Drawing on exclusive interviews and considerable research, ‘Short-Changed’ is the story of a club that has wound up right back where it began when the Stadium of Light’s doors first opened.
