"If you want some accessible but informative insight into football then I suggest you couldn't do better than the Political Economy of Football website, which is not only intelligible but comes with the added bonus of being written by Addicks fan Wyn Grant."

Exiles fans reach takeover target

Share/Save

Newport County Supporters' Trust have raised the funds they need to secure control of the club.  They now become the fourth fan owned club in League Two alongside Exeter City, Portsmouth and Wycombe Wanderers.

They are the first to recognise that the real challenges start here.   Balancing the books at a club is difficult when it has a limited support base, although they hope to build on that.   If money is tight, a club is inclined to struggle and that does not help attendances.   Creating a virtuous cycle is not easy, but I wish them well.

Fan owned

I'm a Pompey supporter and I'm sure that if Pompey can offer any help and guidance they will be more than happy to do so. Good luck to you all.

Newport buy-out

Good luck to you. I think gradually as people tire of the multi-million pond fantasy football teams and owners whocouldn't care less about the fans, football will be returned to the people who really matter - the supporters.

We did it and are turning our fortunes round Keep the faith.
