Kyril Louis-Dreyfus intends to take action following the issue surrounding Sunderland’s FA Cup match against Newcastle United.

Sunderland lost 3-0 to Newcastle United earlier this month in their first meeting in over eight years at the Stadium of Light.

However, the focus had shifted away from football in the week preceding the third-round match.

Fans were already irritated when it was revealed that Sunderland fans in the North Stand would be forced to relocate for the visiting throng, while Newcastle will also be given access to the Black Cats Bar.

Sunderland memorabilia was then photographed being removed from the pub and replaced with Newcastle advertising and decorations.

The Black Cats were outraged and rushed to social media to express their feelings over the club’s action, which led to all of the decorations being removed and Sunderland issuing an apology.

While the club announced that an investigation will be launched into how this might have occurred, there has been no further news and no indication of any sackings.

The Red & White Army, a supporter group, criticized the lack of engagement and has since confirmed that Kyril Louis-Dreyfus will attend a fan collective meeting on Thursday.

“RAWA has received confirmation that the supporter collective meeting will be on the 18th of January and that Kyril Louis-Dreyfus will be attending,” they said on social media. Thank you to everyone who came out last night for our membership meeting. Lots of well-stated points that we will address in the conference.”

What can we anticipate from KLD?

Kyril Louis-Dreyfus will be appropriately questioned about the appalling decisions made leading up to Newcastle’s collapse, which prompted many fans to criticize his ownership and position on Wearside.

The 26-year-old businessman said that he was unaware of the incident until it was shared on social media, but there has been no indication of who is to blame.

Hopefully, we’ll get some answers at the meeting, and there will undoubtedly be questions about Michael Beale’s coming.

After only six games in charge, the former Rangers manager has very few admirers in Sunderland, where he has won two, drawn one, and lost two.

The likely presence of Kristjaan Speakman may also provide insight on transfer dealings, as the club has been extremely silent midway through the January window.
