Eagles chief Mark Aston

Apparently they’ve got only six weeks to find new investors or the club will go out of existence.

You have to feel for Mark Aston, the man has kept the club going against setback after setback.

It puts things into perspective when you consider that the salary of one Manchester United footballer could sustain the Eagles for a good few seasons.

I really do hope someone comes along and rescues Mark.

If anybody deserves a break, it’s him.
