TAKEN FROM LAST NEETS 'RONNY GILL'


Yet more ramifications <(whatever that meenz?) of the 'attempted' name change of St James' Park are deein' the roonds with Newcastle City leaders puttin' in their 'penneez-worth' of comments.

For the benefit of Geordie exiles aroond the world (and beyond!) 'The Geordie Times' haz reprinted extracts from an article printed in last neet's 'Ronny Gill'

Quote:
'The Fat Controller' < (or words to that effect!) has been told that he will receive NO support from Newcastle Council in his efforts to rename St James' Park.
City leaders at the council have passed a motion calling on 'The Fat Controller' < (owtte!) to reverse his decision in light of widespread fan opposition.
Labour and Liberal Democrat politicians united behind a motion which will see the council REFUSE to change street signs to reflect the clubs decision to rename the ground.
The motion, agreed UNANIMOUSLY, says the council officially agrees with "the overwhelming majority of supporters who believe this is the wrong decision" 
It adds: "Council confirms that it has NO plans to change existing way finding signs which bear the name 'St James Park' and call on the club to reconsider it's decision"
The council motion also commits city officers to write to media organisations asking them to hold back from referring to the ground as 'yee naa wot'<(or words to that effect!)
