This is sad and worrying news. Given that Northants have been in existence since 1878 what is it about the here and now that is causing such financial problems?

Its testament to Palace and the PL in general that they can go to Anfield with nothing to play for and do such a job as they have. Nothing like the PL in the world-every game matters.
