    Thanks for sharing.

    Interesting we didnt run anywhere near as far as the others, we were close to the bottom, but close to the top for sprints.

    Is that due to targeted trigger points, hence why our fitness was just awesome post lockdown.

    It says we could start next season on fire, the players know the system far more now, it all seems to have clicked.

    It's a little like the business book 'Good to Great'.

    might not be too bad for lower league clubs, depending on ground capacity and normal gates. They may, and I stress May, be able to distance fans easier.

    Yeah that did cross my mind after I posted tbf that it could depend on the club. Some rarely get above 50% anyway though even 500 lost fans is a bigger deal for a 3rd/4th division club.

    I think Sunderland will cope fine. In fact, they'll barely notice any difference. <laugh>

    I was thinking this also. I thought it may be more people will go, as they cant get into Prem games.

    I know their ground is quite a bit bigger but think they average the same as/higher than us.


    Coventry/Hull would be a better example.

    Interesting article on the bbc re Saudi takeover at Newcastle.

    The human rights issues are huge and despicable and the article goes on about Geordie fans making their view known, protesting and stuff.

    I mean, that's just ****ing abusive to expect their fans to be able to write banners, let alone string coherent sentences about delicate rights of people across the world.

    One Geordy I interviewed about this said "I just dont see what the issue is here, wot wiv not letting them lasses drive. I mean who's gonna take us back from the boozer, in time for me breakie".

    First team to concede 60+ goals in 5 conse
    consecutive seasons. Only so long that will keep you up for.

    Fair well Bournemouth, and thanks for the fake rivalry. Fortunately I think Lallana might just have found us a easy fit replacement..................

    While Manchester City may not be everyone´s favourite team, I feel that the morality of these teams is even lower than City´s for trying their best to get City banned from European competition. Here are the nine teams in question. Taken from the BBC website! Good to see that SFC were not part of this little scenario.

    However, as City never made such an application, it was never processed. The nine Premier League clubs who made the application were Arsenal, Burnley, Chelsea, Leicester, Liverpool, Man United, Newcastle, Tottenham and Wolves.

    I think its disgusting how City's big city suits have got the punishment overthrown. And I think you shifting the spot light on to these meek self serving nine does no credit to the real issues in this case.

    I think justice was done. FFP is a sham and Uefa are as corrupt as anyone.
