    Wonga Park, or St James's Wonga would've been OK by me!

      Sure, Wonga are loan sharks without the goons, but they provide a service and are legally able to advertise where they want.
      There's very little difference between legally wrong and morally wrong, demanding 4000% apr may be legally right but is it morally right? Landing us with a bill of 100 odd billion may have been legally right for AIB et al but it sure as hell isnt morally right. To me there is very little difference between the aforementioned AIB & co and Wonga. As Valencia said above when the repayments fail to come in what is the procedure for collections? "Goons" as you call them I'm sure are involved.

      I've been to St James Park and met Shay Given there so have a soft spot for Newcastle so this isnt about club rivalary or anything like that.

        This may have been in the running before Ashley changed the name to Sports Direct Arena in the first place!! Clever if so, nice optics
