deserves it own thread?
It's in Exeter.
that whole including an @ sign in a café / restaurant / football ground name is pretty fucking passé. I'm surprised they didn't go the whole hog and stick the work "Millennium"* in the name.
*Willennium. Excuse me.
they've confused the email address @ sign with the internet address .com. sorry to sound a bit Moss-from-the-IT-crowd but that's just WRONG.

dis just proved your point
mike ashley = dave whelan?
Those poor Geordies. Surely this is not going to endear Ashley towards the Newcastle fans any more, or can that relationship sink further still?
My club cannot comment too much, we had the BT Cellnet Riverside Stadium for a couple of seasons.
LOOT Stadium 4 EVA!
I for one will be referring to this stadium by its full name from now on. I can only hope that it takes on an 'in association with' element at some point.
An MP has got involved too, he really should but out. If an MP told me how to run my business, I'd want to give him a dry slap.
BAD newcastle united.
The club that just keeps giving
If Chelsea were skint and Samsung offered to bung 'em a couple of quid for naming rights, I wouldn't piss and moan about going to the Samsung Stamford Bridge
it's a stupid name? Or is it the principle?
Last week it was all about getting some extra funding in, not about promoting the chairman's own company. He's not exactly been up front and honest about it, which hasn't helped in the slightest.
Ashely clearly needs the dosh to fund Newcastle; money he makes is good for Newcastle. Besides which, this (quite clearly to me at least) seems temporary, a measure to demonstrate how naming rights could work for a potential sponsor currently considering their options.
i've got no problem with clubs renaming their stadium in line with sponsorship. my main problem is the @ sign. That's all. It's a football stadium not a cybercafé established in 1999.
important to the city and people of London as St James Park is to Newcastle. U dont understand.
It's fairly important to a large chunk of West London's population though. It would still be if it was called McSquiggle's Fun Time Football Emporium too.
it's a fucking insult.
What's a fucking insult is how in the latest Pro-Evo, Chelsea are 'London FC' while Arsenal are merely 'North London'.
What kind of horseshit is that?
How can you mistype 'Gooner Scum' quite so badly?
Why isn't that bloody meme that the nightshift keep trying to make happen 'shut up, brusma'?
Yeah, if it was Pro Evolution Soccer 1913.
Then Chelsea wouldn't even be in the game, so swings'n'roundabouts...
"Half your squad is killed fighting the Hun. Continue? Yes/No"
so shit, Dis lets him reply twice ;)
Most depressing post ever.
It's hardly like it's imbued with historical significance like Croke Park or something.
It's just a place where people play football in a town where people like football

of supporting newcastle in return for a hamster. I really wanted a hamster n'all.
its like the supporters hate the club and don't want them back in the premiership at the expense of "preserving" the pride of england's glittering north east.

Sports Direct is a terrible shop, unless Lonsdale hoodies are your thing.
but yes we would like to preserve our history and pride.
i think you're doing quite a good job of it at the moment. won a few too many games though chortle chortle chortle
if you want to continue to have top quality players like coloccini, danny simpson and barton, your club is going to have to make some sacrifices.
would you prefer those top quality players, or adding a few words onto the front of the stadium title. Its not as if they're knocking down a stand or something. and you get to keep those top quality players.
YOU'VE CROSSED THE TITO
Trust, this will run all day now
You're to Newcastle Utd what CG is to the Tory party; a genuine supporter but with a cleverly disguised sense of humour. Egg all over my face.
Ashley has been a complete disaster and surely this has to be the final straw. It's still a working class game and Newcastle is a working class region and he's selling the soul of the club to make a few quid to pay for his complete incompetence. It's bollocks and they have a right to be angry.
anyways it cant run any longer cause i'm off to see Biffy fight amongst yourselves. I'm right tho! ;)
I still don't see what was so bad about the yellow away kit...
of a lonely damaged eclair on a supermarket shelf
I thought it was more like if the team had managed to collect all the Chaos Emeralds.
makes Wayne Rooney look like one classy motherfucker don't it?
Newcastle Utd are hilarious! What a joke.
