"ONE MORE SEAT THAN NEWCASTLE!"

Posted '12:25pm bells' Tuesday 13th March 2018

It's just after half time at the SOS and Villa are leadin' 2-0
"One more seat!---
Your havin a laff!"😅

Former sund'lind 'supremo' bob murray once said that he wanted "One more seat than Newcastle!", when their new stadium woz built in 1997, claimin that they had more fans than us!

He aalso copied Benfica and gave it it's ridiculous name, after concludin that az it woz built on an old colliery pit site, which of course woz in darkness, it should be caalled the exact opposite!?

Fast forward 21 years and we are telt that because of apathy, they are to close the top concourse of their stadium and relocate season ticket holders to ' the lower pink seated bowl' az they cant fill the top one!

Meeenwhile and in total contrast NUFCs next home game v 'uddersfield in just under 3 weeks time iz a complete 52,300 sell oot!

For "one more seat", read "30,000 less seats than Newcastle needed'!"
