THE 'ST JAMES' NAME WILL LIVE FOREVERMORE!

Posted '10:30 am bells Saturday 12th November 2011

ST JAMES' PARK 'ATTEMPTED' NAME CHANGE---LATEST FAN REACTION!

The general consensus of opinion amongst Toon fans aa met on Friday afternooon, (whilst oot 'on the hoy'!), was that the name 'St James' Park' will live forevermore, and aa couldn't find ANYBODY who will caall it anythin' else!

The City cooncil haz said that, "Some things are beyond profit!", and there iz NE WAY that they are gannin to change ANY road or footpath direction signs to St James' Park.
'St James' Boulevard', which iz the main thoroughfare to the groond, will remain the SAME NAME, az will 'St James' Street' where the groond took it's name from in 1880!

'Nexus', who run the 'Metro' undergroond trains have aallso hoyed a spanner into the works by declarin' that St James' Metro Station's name WILL STAY THE SAME! ("good on them aall!")

A 'veteran fan' in hiz mid seventies caalled Alfie, who haz followed The Toon since he was, "Knee high to a magpie!" in the 1940's, and haz a season ticket in 'The East Stand', summed every fans feelings up when he said, "'The Fat Controller' can caall it wot he likes!, but it will aalways be St James' Park to me!  A'v caalled it that for ower seventy years and a'm NOT! gannih change now!"

AND SO SAY AALL OF US, ALFIE!
