The BBC are giving it massive prominence which seems a tad disproportionate
...and I speak as someone who has a son who is a fervent Newcastle FC supporter!
Look, it's a shame that he has died,
I think he was a nice guy and I did watch the testimonial for his Charity at St James last week
BUT this is overkill. Wonder what bad news the BBC are really trying to hide?
The bastards. It's almost certainly something about flags.
