Don't think Brexit comes into it, massive red herring. Lower league clubs have been struggling for many years, long before Brexit. Or the first referendum on entering the Common Market come to that (Accrington, I'm looking at you)

The Government's own Brexit analysis, which apparently have been found again, estimate that the NE, will take a 16% hit to regional growth.  Although not impossible, it's unlikely that Hpool will come back from that sort of hit

Hartelpool's plight has got a lot more to do with our former owner's cronies than Brexit.

Yes, I know...but what I'm saying is that it will be very difficult for them to get back to sustaining lower league football given the predicted economic downside of Brexit.

Good to see Tango Man still going strong for Wednesday at Swansea.

Possibly less resistant to the temperature were those missing at Reading, with an attendance of less than 7,000 last night.

The weather was horrendous in Reading yesterday and the traffic equally as terrible but that attendance did make me chuckle. Just over 6K Reading fans. They are in real danger of going down now as well, the fans I work with have the same sort of apathy as some on here have towards STFC.

Does not lessen the fact that Kevin Davies is a wanker, however......

Nice goal scored by Ronaldo.

Rory Fallon did it better though.  Smiley

An incredible strike which should be praised, although I find it a shame the whole world reacts like nobody's done it before because they were'nt Ronaldo.

Even Zlatan gets in on the action...
Ibrahimovic on Ronaldo’s goal: “It was a nice goal, but he should try it from 40 meters.”
