Double Blues’ double-page tribute.

So much so that on one memorable day my website  recorded no fewer than exactly 1001 angry hits!!!

I don’t resile from my comments over the past few years on the club’s  prolonged financial tightrope, and they have been validated by  an unprecedented double-page spread in the sports pages  today’s “Sunday Mail”.
