Can Paddy Power cheer up Sunderland fans? Yes we Canio. Here’s a free £5 bet

by Paddy Power Admin | September 23, 2013

It’s a situation more depressing than watching series four of Downton Abbey on Sunday nights with your cat.

Your team is bottom of the league.

You have one point after five games.

And Tony Pulis (6/1) is one of the favourites to be your next manager. Shudder.

It’s not easy being a Sunderland fan right now.

This is all after the sacking of Paolo Di Canio. His 13-match run in charge of chaos at the Stadium of Light ended on Sunday night after the players finally snapped and called for his head.

Sunderland fans decided they’d enough after the 3-0 defeat to West Brom on Saturday. That sealed a win percentage for the bat-shit-crazy Italian of just 17%, with two wins and only 11 goals scored under this reign. We call it Ball of Shame. You call it a bloody mess.

But cheer up, Sunderland fans. It can’t get much worse.

Paddy Power, if nobody else, has your back.

Today, we’re giving Sunderland fans who have registered with Paddy Power’s Team Pages an e-hug with a free £5 bet. It’ll land in your inbox.

Lump it on a resurgent home result against Peterborough United in the Capitol One Cup on Tuesday night, or even a brave performance against Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.

Alternatively, just use it sensibly on any football market with Paddy Power in the next week.

And let’s hope, for the sake of football in the north-east of England, some non-mentalist like Roberto di Matteo (evens) fancies a shot.

Meanwhile, let’s have a look at the Sunderland chairman’s email inbox today…
