I am not a football fan as most of you know. However, I am glad that our six clubs have withdrawn from the Super League. Supporting football as a fan has crept up and up in cost with the seats, the ever changing kit, etc. Football needs its fans from the 3 year olds to the 103 year olds, most of which are not millionaires!
This quote from Bobby Robson has come out on the radio and social media. If you haven’t heard it yet ….
Writing in Newcastle – My Kind of Toon, his 2008 love letter to his home city, Sir Bobby wrote: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it.
“It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes.
“It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.
