    Biggest Club in the NE

    We just have our noses in front as the most successful NE club at this moment, but we are not the biggest club in the area going by attendance figures. That’s a worrying aspect that I hope will change. Gibbo has frozen ticket prices again this year..a good thing perhaps, but in comparison to similar clubs who have dropped ticket prices, this may be an opportunity missed to attract more people to games next season.
    Now that Sunderland are back up It would be great for the NE sides to make the rest of the country notice us, for years none of us have really had a sniff of major silverware, yes some cup final appearances...with only one trophy to show for it.
    You are dead right though Douggie that for his first season in charge Southgate hasn’t done too badly.... at least we have out performed the bar codes this season...but only just, 43 points is not really a signal for us to start sucking each others d%cks just yet....in fact we can leave that to Manure USA supporters ; )
