Barnsley face financial crisis heading into the 2011/2012 season
“B” is for Barnsley Football Club, the team I have supported from being knee high to a grasshopper to present, in excess of 30 years. A period of which has been spent travelling through the lower leagues and right up to the brink and recovery from financial disaster.

It’s not a glamorous task by any stretch of the imagination, but then again, it was never promoted as being that way either. Considering the facilities back then, the old “Spion Kop” (now redeveloped as the North Stand) was essentially an old “muck stack” that was conveniently covered by concrete terracing, with no roof. But nobody complained; that was just how it was.
