Toon are becoming 'calamity kings' of the English game

It was Francis Lee who famously coined the phrase: "If they handed out cups for cock-ups you wouldn't get in the Manchester City boardroom."

Well, it seems Newcastle are taking over as the calamity kings of the English game.

If being relegated wasn't painful enough for the legion of Toon fans, the small print on their season ticket renewal forms for the 2009-10 season inflicted even more torture.

It seems inside St James' Park the reality of Championship football has not sunk in.

The season ticket small print makes repeated reference to Premier League home matches.

Given the chaos surrounding Mike Ashley's (right) for-sale club, it might be a few years before Toon are back in the big time - and they may finally get around to sorting out the proper terms and conditions for their ticket sales.
