Unfortunately only the first part of the Bob interview seems to be available on the internet and infact the second part is the most interesting. The few main points from the Football Echo are: Bob Murray neither puts any of his own personal wealth into the football club and neither does he take any money out of it He believes the club should be self-sufficient like 3/4 of premier league clubs are West Brom had only won one game by christmas yet still stayed up He has only missed two out of 12 league games, home and away, this season His motivation is not about raising his profile - it is about helping the club, the region and the community and that is why they invest so much time & energy in the SAFC Foundation, community programmes and keeping prices affordable to the community He has heard the rumours on internet websites about takeovers but dismisses them saying "i do hear rumours but the facts have not changed. if someone wanted to get involved for the right reasons i would step aside and i have never blocked anyone from doing that. I don't understand the motives for those that advocate protests, which help no one, as we've invested everything we have and I've never blocked anyone from getting involved" The clubs turnover was £1.5m when he took over and is now £40m His three biggest achievements are the stadium, academy and avoiding the fate of other relegated clubs The final ending of the article is particularly interesting: It's the desire to see his club firmly established in the Premiership that drives the chairman. But he worries protests against him, Mick McCarthy or the club may actually backfire and affect the team's performance. I would really encourage you to go and buy the Football Echo because this is the best bit of the interview (not the bit in the Sunderland Echo and on the gazette website) and most interesting. However, it does seem it is simply a PR ploy by the club to halt protest talks as the word 'protest' and 'internet websites' is regularly mentioned.
