Man City Transfer Target!

One from the internet. On the BBC Sport website for the Newport County v Middlesbrough FA Cup Replay, it states "Newport County are looking to reach the FA Cup fifth round for only the second time, (also 1948-49)". This reincarnation of Newport County only came into being in 1989, 40 years after the previous Newport County reach the FA Cup 5th Round.
It really doesn't matter about re-incarnations. They do the same with Accrington Stanley.
No one outside of places like this forum, really give a rats arse what happened to Newport County 30 years ago, and that the current club isn't strictly the same enitity and so journalists like those at the BBC are really not going to waste their time.
Even if explained, most people would still see the name Newport County in 1949 and Newport County in 2019 and conclude that it is indeed the same club regardless (and to all intents and purposes, except legal, they are!)
