The same thing will happen at Sunderland. The reason why he's been out so long is because no clubs has funds good enough for O'Neil. He only joined Sunderland after having them commit transfer funds for him. Sooner or later though, Elis Short, just like Lerner will run out of patience, not hand over any more money and O'Neil will run for the hills.
This is what I thought before he took over. Up to now, before any money has been spent, he has done better than I could have ever imagined
If he's here for 3 years before leaving for Man Utd and gets us where we want to be under O'Neill without leaving us with a load of shit, I'll be happy
