 I reckon we should get the 83/84  season kit back, for the coming campaign. Then we were in Div 4, with a GE just before the season starter..... then as probably now, a female Tory leader about to take the working classes of country down the drain.

STFC heading for a lowest ever league position, playing in front of gates a little over 3, 000 on a good day, but down to < 2000 on a bad day.

Shirt sponsor might upset a few mind....

Time for some good old fashioned TEF Pressure Group?

I think I still have the Burmah one, and might have to dig it out for tomorrow...although wearing the green potato print one didn't quite have the expected effect of delivering three points the other week.

Astonishingly, it seems as though Mike Ashley's Newcastle might be under the spotlight

The penalty for financial irregularities after promotion to the top flight and being a small club without expensive lawyers, is I believe to be relegated 2 divisions

Would be better if they put Power and Sherwood in charge if found guilty. Same end result as 2 demotions but more painful.

I'm very confident that the footballing authorities will definitely deal with the matter accordingly, and in a way that is directly and fairly proportionate to the way they handled our financial irregularity case all those years ago.

Yeah, but NUFC and WHU are going to use lawyers, and defend their corner.
Its like our tactic of dropping our trousers  and bending over might not have been the best approach after all.

Still, may see a few individuals done, if not the FCs.

Benitez has been very coy on his future at nufc thus far, but this may just make his mind up.

But for Power, the Irons and the Magpies would have been at the CG next season - just like the old days in Tier 2.

I suppose 'rules are rules' but this will be hugely disappointing for the Clubs and their fans.   Sad

Surely Darlo have 500 covered seats across two stands in that huge stadium?
