Some attention on a slow news day has focused on confirmation from Companies House that the name of Bob Moncur is no longer listed as a Director of NUFC.
The 73 year-old former club captain was appointed to a four man board in June 2015, alongside Lee Charnley, Graham Carr and then-boss Steve McClaren.
That shrank to three with the departure of McClaren during March 2016, with Carr then relinquishing his scouting role and directorship in June 2017.
To all intents and purposes the board then ceased to exist, Charnley remaining as MD and providing linkage between Rafa Benitez, Mike Ashley and anyone else assuming a position of authority eg: Justin Barnes.
Today's news looks to be nothing more than a clerical exercise reflecting that previous change, Moncur continuing in post as a club ambassador, matchday host and patron of the club's charitable foundation.
..............if true we seem to exist without a functional board of directors.
