Ruiter’s contract

runs out in the summer and is (not surprisingly) highly likely to leave.

Just reading the article in the Echo and this bit jumped out at me.

“A lot has changed at the club after relegation,” he said. “There were new owners and a new Scottish manager, who brought his own Scottish keeper.

At our first meeting after the summer break, he already indicated that I would be the second keeper and I had to deal with that.”

Sounds a tad like sour grapes to me. To even hint at McLoughlin being no.1 because he’s of the same nationality as the manager, is a joke. The bottom line is that you’re just not very good Robin.

Young Max should be replacing him as #2 keeper anyway.

You should get a job for The Sun. He was very complimentary and no sour grapes at all.


"It has been two special years, but I hope to close Wembley nicely," Ruiter said in an interview with Dutch outlet AD. ahead of this weekend's play-off final against Charlton Athletic.

"A few years ago I was with my father on a stadium tour in Wembley. Although it was empty, I thought it was an impressive stadium, but I will be there for the second time in two months as a player while it is full.

"I don't think there will be any more free seats, because this match is very important at both clubs."

For Ruiter, it has been the fans which have made his time in the North East truly special.

My contract expires and I will probably leave, but first I want to say goodbye with promotion. Our fans deserve that enormously.

"They travel all over the country to see us play. We also travel by bus much more often this season because the club wants to save costs.

"For example, we only returned to Sunderland at 6am last Friday after a 888-kilometer bus trip from Portsmouth.

"The distances from Sunderland are large, but our branch is always full. On New Year's Day we played at Blackpool for 12,000 spectators, 9,000 of whom were ours.

"The pressure is with us on Sunday, but we have enough experience in the team to finish the job now."

He’s a footballer he wants to play games man, he’s bound to sound disappointed.

Why? He’s awful. Won’t be number 2 if we go up and won’t be number 2 if we don’t
Don’t think he’s that bad. Looked good during the limited games he’s had this year and was alright last year bar one single game, which admittedly he was terrible but his confidence was clearly shot.

I think people want to lump him in with the other two we had, when in fact it was only one game he was really bad in.

didnt he fuck the club off a bit by returning early from a loan spell due to being "homesick"?

I think he was talking about Max Stryjek not Ruiter?
 
Ruiter was decent In the checkatrade rounds, did nothing to warrant being dropped in that competition. Anyone saying he's awful must not have been there.

By the way, I also advocated Ozturk being brought in as first choice center back, based on his performances in said competition :cool:
