Aged and crippled sports stars muster support for crippled Home Loaner - Northern Wreck

Northern Echo "Buyers Circle round ailing Northern Rock" ...today

"The bank did receive a vote of confidence by one famous name yesterday. Alan Shearer, the England and Newcastle United legend, opened an account in a show of confidence. He said: "Northern Rock have been great for the people of the North-East, particularly with sport."

England rugby star Jonny Wilkinson, whose team Newcastle Falcons is sponsored by Northern Rock, described it as a part of the fabric of his club.

With fellow England and Falcons team-mates Mathew Tait and Toby Flood, he left messages of support for the bank on the club's website."

So that's alright then. The Falcons and the Toon should start looking for another sponsor ... pronto... and England look for a stand off who can ocassionally feed the ball out to his backs instead of fucking kicking whenever he gets possession.

UPDATE 8.40 BST In the real world oil is US$82 a barrel and rising and the US$ is now worth Euros 1.40..... and Northern Wreck have slumped to 2.28 in trades in the last minute - down 11% ... P/E of 2.42 41.5 % Yield Ho.Ho.Ho. Chance of a lifetime sir, roll up ! roll up!
