Newport have just tweeted that they have sold 6,000 to date.
I have major issues about FFP, as it seemed aimed to protect an existing elite. Some of those clubs financed reasonably, but others such as the Glazers at Man Utd or Liverpool's previous owners seemed to just suck money out of their clubs, yet FFP oblivious to that.There is always that smell around City’s finances. I saw an article suggesting that if you look at net spend since their longest serving player was signed (Kompany?) then they have more than doubled that of anyone else. UEFA are contemplating a one year Champions League ban for falsely inflating the value of a sponsorship to make them look solvent and and not just a cash conduit for oil rich Sheikhs. That said, they are, of course, a very good team!
That's an incredible gate, given Fylde's fanbase. Surely a record for this competition. Recent finals have been contested by lower-tier clubs, but this year the biggest clubs must have been taking the competition more seriously. Hats off to Dave Challinor for getting some compensation for the recent play-off final defeat and to Danny Rowe, who scored the only goal. I wonder where Danny will end up next season.There was a crowd of 43,000 at Wembley today for the FA Trophy final, Fylde v Orient. It must have been a hell of a turnout for the O's.
