Today it’s the turn of Newcastle United, a club which attracts even more ridicule than Spurs. Owner Mike Ashley – a sort of real-life Peter Griffin – has not only taken the club off the market, he’s announced that the club will be “welcoming offers for the stadium naming rights next season”.
Really? I’d understand if Newcastle were planning to move into a new stadium, but to rename St James’ Park… poor Bobby Robson must be spinning around already.
Anyway, money talks etc. and Newcastle will do whatever it takes to get back into the Prem,
