Thankfully they'll fill one relegation berth, who fills the other 2 is much harder to judge, but clearly the win over Newcastle was a one-off.
Probably showed more how poor Newcastle are, than anything about Sheffield

Re: ALK Capital or Farnell/Elkashashy takeover

Iam not going to question the financial deal because I have no knowledge of how these deals are done.
But it would seem we are not debt free anymore. If this is correct, surely there has to be investment into the playing side, otherwise we might as well stayed as we were?
