    For a small town provincial club with deluded fans Sky seem keen enough to air our games. Happy to find ten a penny rent a mouth pundits plenty willing to ridicule both the team and fans yet at same time make money off us. Sky – Believe in hype

    • Paul Patterson

      The TV companies are hypocrites. Happy to take the viewing figures and slag the club off and/or report half truths and lies.

      With us being on the telly so much can they get someone interesting in who is actually a friend of the Toon to commentate is stead of Alan Smith who clearly hates us. Johnny Beresford would be my suggestion.

    Strange how Sky pundits(!!) give us no chance but their employer keeps picking up our games ? Am I right in thinking from a previous post that the viewing public has put many of our shown games in the top 10 for subscriber figures ? You’d almost think we were becoming entertaining to watch ?

    Don’t have to be popular … don’t have to have even half a chance … NUFC can still be a major draw in the great Sky football soap opera. Sky is just being smart when it bigs up the drama surrounding the club … it attracts viewers.

    NUFC is a much more attractive media property than most of the other sub-top-6 clubs. Keep the drama going!
