  • (History Lesson!!!)
    2 decades ago... Newcastle consolidated their place in Division One but then a period of selling their best players (Beardsley to Liverpool, and Waddle and Gazza both to Tottenham), rocked the club and led to supporter unrest, as did a share-war for control of the boardroom. The effect of this on the pitch soon proved evident, as McFaul was sacked after a shaky start to the 1988-89 season, and new boss Jim Smith proved unable to turn Newcastle around, resulting in them finishing at the foot of the first division for the first time ever.

    history only repeats itself so much for the future!!!

  • The arsenal board are nothing more than leeches living off a profitable business which used to be a fantastic football club. The manager is about to walk as the board refuse to allow him to buy decent players but are happy to fleece hard working supporters of money for over priced tickets and merchandise.

  • Is it not bad for the image of a firm as glamourous as Slaughter and May to be associated with a "feeder club" minnow such as Arsenal who constantly bow to the world superpower that is Manchester City Football Club??

  • This could also have been handled by former West Ham Chief Executive Scott Duxbury, now a Partner at Rix & Kay.

  • Boiled Ham - I have been following Scott Duxbury's career with interest myself and was delighted to see him appointed partner at Uckfield's pre-eminent law firm

  • @Janet Jobling - I think Dawson Hart may have something to say about the pre-eminence of Rix & Kay. You cannot assume just because legal fromage-grand Duxbury has joined them that they necessarily "best" their competition
