Is this really the new Newcastle United East Stand sign?

St James' Park East Stand sign.
Well known Newcastle United site have posted the image you see here of the new sign over St James’ Park’s East Stand, much favoured by pensioners with tartan lap rugs and flasks of tea, and myself I may add. But I digress…

The picture, posted by “KM”, was supposedly taken on Wednesday, September 14th, and as you can see, the sign isn’t quite “exactly the same” as the club claimed in a statement. The lettering has been italicised to fit in with the much more important Sports Direct signage which will now be flanking it.

Toon blogger, Steve Wraith, claimed on his Twitta around a week ago that when completed, the sign would read:

“(puma logo) sportsdirect newcastle united sports direct (puma logo)”

And he certainly seems to be right so far. However time will tell once and for all when the Blackburn game referred to above takes place on Saturday, 24th September. (more…)
