If you thought

that calling Newcastle United's ground The sportsdirect.com@St James' Park Stadium was silly (which it goes without saying it is) how about this?

At the football on Saturday we were informed at the end of the first half that: "The fourth official has indicated that there will be a minimum of two minutes injury time. This message was brought to you in association with Jackson Grundy (local estate agents), sponsors of the Cobblers."

Oh, for goodness sake.

Well Steve - if there is a god I reckon he must have a lot of fun at the expense of City fans :-)

YP - I wish someone would sponsor me to go and watch. At least then I would get SOMETHING from the experience other than sheer bloody misery.
