Maybe stands could have dual names, The Sue Pollard Stand for people my age, and the Joe Dempsie Stand for the T4 watching yoof.

I am all for new money but would rather we were owned solely by McCabe and not get into the foreign owners who have no allegiance to the club.
We recently made staff (in the ticket office etc.) redundant including a guy who has been there years and done a bit of everything, acting as Promotion manager ocover recent seasons. Finally though, McCabe changed his mind and changed the decision to get rid of him but only after numerous complaints from the fans.
Just disheartened with football and the money side of it, in general I guess.
It's the away end, where I was standing in the lower-tier for the infamous play-off defeat.
So, in a way, I've been in Jessica Ennis's downstairs area.
"Sheffield United could be in line for a cash windfall after their parent company, the Scarborough Group, made a big signing.
Kevin McCabe’s company have invited one of Nigeria’s leading investment bankers, Mr Jacob Esan, onto the board of both Scarborough Group International Limited and the football club."
Erm, ok! lol!
I was in Cabo Roig when us and Sheff Utd tussled play offs semis in 2003. Can't remember the name of the bar but there was only me, Mum, 3yo daughter and 12 yo step son and a big group of SU fans in the basement of the bar, showing the game. Quite an intimidating atmosphere to begin, then we all got chatting with a tense but good natured 2nd leg expected.
I was devastated after (what was really the first of many playoff overhauls against us, unfortunately) but the atmosphere still fizzed, and I will always remember that big group who made us not only comfortable, but were a pleasure to be amongst.
*what a shame the away goals weren't in force

Just hope we can get out of League 1 this time around but I am not expecting to!
