Stay of Execution?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Knives out for STFC board
as club teeters on the
edge of yawning chasm.
Debts piling up as
takeover collapses amidst
sea of recrimination and acrimony.
New investor found to
give Town immediate stay
of execution, but not enough
to stave off protests from
disgruntled, furious fans.
Mere crumbs of comfort –
scant reward for circling vultures
ready to carry club off into



The latest crisis at the County Ground where STFC are in serious and imminent danger of going out of business. Anyone got £18m?!
