Netflix Series About Sunderland's 17/18 Relegation Season To Be Released Soon

Netflix Series About Sunderland's 17/18 Relegation Season To Be Released Soon

If you're not a big football fan, you might not know that when a team has a successful season they usually release a film of the campaign to document their achievements, give fans a way to re-live the magic, and to make a couple of quid.

Just look at Manchester City, for example. They've released a new Amazon Prime series and it's actually pretty decent.

However, Sunderland didn't have the most successful time last season - quite the opposite, in fact.

What makes matters worse is that a documentary crew have been following them around all through 2017/18 catching every tiny moment in what could go down as one of the North East club's worst ever campaigns.

The programme - presumably some sort of tragic comedy series - will be broadcast on Netflix on December 14, 2018 and will be called 'Sunderland Till I Die'.

The 2017/18 season saw Sunderland facing life in England's second tier of football for the first time in a decade, and things did not improve from there.

The best players left the club, several players on huge wages stuck around to sap them dry, a manager has lost his job, and the owner - American Ellis Short - dramatically reined in spending.
