On Tuesday we published a piece about the ownership of Sunderland AFC. The article was labelled: “Analysis: Owner claimed it was "the most professional League One club there has ever been” - this is how it all went wrong for Stewart Donald"
Offthepitch.com has removed the article due to a number of reasons. First and foremost, it was not an analysis article, it was a Column/Opinion piece. We should have labelled this point very clearly - which unfortunately we didn’t.
Some facts were inaccurate in the article and also some things were taken out of context.
Offthepitch.com would like to offer an apology to Stewart Donald and Charlie Methven due to this poor editorial judgement.
