Elliott Shot Himself In Foot?

Elliott Shot Himself In Foot?

Glenn Roeder offered him a one year deal, but the Geordie boy said 'no', and walked out on the club he has supported all his life.

It seemed to come to head early in the summer when he told the Evening Chronicle he was looking for a move to a club abroad ... but not in Europe. Some 'holiday home in the sun' for his family, which must have put off any potential club straight away. A holiday? Did he want to play football or sunbathe?

That was suddenly nipped in the bud by various people, including Freddy Shepherd and Glenn Roeder. Elliott had a change of mind, insisted the Chronicle got the story wrong, and he said he was staying.

And that is the last of him.

Does anyone know the TRUE story why he left?

They are leaving a sinking ship, scrambling for the door to join bigger clubs and who can blame them, you have a pathetic team of no hopers and your performance in the week showed that, get used to it children.

I fail to see how you can call Sunderland a larger club.
