    As a Southampton fan I would be a lot happier if you could remove the (SO FAR) from the title.

    Too many teams fates are being decided off the pitch. If a club can raise a team then let them play and leave them to sort out their finance s best they can

Farsley Celtic thought that they had dodged the bullet of a High Court winding up order brought by HMRC.
