  1. However you're allowed an opinion on whether you think fan group ownership, or a fans group having a seat on the board is a good idea or not. It's not just a test of who is optimistic and who is miserable.
  2. When you say 'bother your arse do anything yourself', that doesn't really mean much. I think we all want to see Ashley gone and new owners, but this isn't seeking to achieve that. This is about a degree of fan ownership, or fans having a say on the board. Personally, I don't agree that it's desirable so for me I have no interest in ever doing anything to achieve that aim. It would be similar if one of my neighbours wanted to paint my block of flats red and I said I didn't want to be involved and didn't like it. The argument back can't be 'easier to be negative than bother your arse to do anyth

    Allan Saint-Maximin

    Unless the takeover happens, he will leave at some point in the next 12-18 months. The club is sold to agents and players as a stepping stone.
  4. I've had a bit of a nightmare day trying to get stuff sorted for a change of job so only just getting my tea now. I'll try and put together my own account of events over the next couple of days for you. Don't want to slaver something quick and miss things out. One thing though, it was a different format to the previous forum so I found it harder to be able to get in all the questions I wanted. Not great. As you can see from the mistakes made reply, it probably didn't make much difference had I asked them anyway. Sweep and move on seemed to be the theme.
  5. Basically finish when they've got through all the questions. A lot of people have the same kind of questions though, so you get the answer (or attempt at an answer) in other questions. Still haven't had any sent through. Got until 2nd July for anyone interested.
  6. Some of you may know from previous topics and threads that I am on the Newcastle fans forum. You can read back at my previous posts for my thoughts on it. I need to gather questions and forward them to the club for the next meeting by 2nd July. I had asked for questions on Twitter but didn't get any. As this is my favourite Newcastle forum, I thought I would ask on here for questions. Obviously there are 12 people on the forum and time is limited, so I won't be able to ask everything (4 or 5 questions probably) but I'd like your suggestions for questions to ask the board. Please remember t

    To be honest don't know how you can even sit and discuss anything with those f***ers - they fill you with utter s*** and don't give a s*** about any points you make and just make up a load of bull to justify their actions. I would have told them to go and f*** themselves a long time ago to their faces - it's anything but a fans forum. I understand that point of view. However at the forums the answer everything asked of them. I don't agree with most of the bullshit, but there has been some information from it like why they got rid of MYM etc. They aren't fooling me like, and I don't have to

    John Carver

    I was saying similar before about Berwick. Colin Cameron is manager, the fans are on his back a bit after a poor season and I think Berwick Rangers should think about replacing him. However, I'm being deadly serious when I say that I believe him to be a better manager than Carver. If Carver gets the job I won't be paying the best part of £600 for a season ticket next year. Doubt I'd even bother trying to get to individual games.

    I signed off the FF letter along with the rest so you can blame me. Ha. My spelling is atrocious.

    I'd like to see money raised to pay for billboards around prominent places around town for our message on. The logo with a simple quote below it would do. Not sure how much these things cost and how long they last for though.
  11. Think this is where people might go wrong. The likes of JJ and T&B on Twitter can't just rock up and ask the questions they've had on social media. An agenda is created before the forum with all the questions submitted via the club website. http://www.nufc.co.uk/page/Fans/FansForum/0,,10278~3462537,00.html You can choose your representaive and the question will go via them. Don't know if they get to edit the question for palatability or brevity, but I we'll see if my Q's get through what form they take. You can forward questions any way really. The club didn't set the agenda, t
  12. To be fair, I think the majority of the forum are the same. I'm not the only one voicing the concerns, it's just that it doesn't come across well in the minutes. The first meeting I went to I didn't say too much, as I was pretty nervous, but felt more confident at this one and felt like it was easy to put across my questions and opinions. To be fair to the board, they answer them and they don't make you feel uncomfortable. If anything, they encourage the debate. I just don't agree with most of their answers and the minutes are obviously watered down which I don't agree with. I assume no-o

  14. The draft minutes yesterday were worse, so I forwarded my concerns, but that was only to do with my questions. The whole point of my second question was about January window and if we are prepared to let people go in that month but have no intention of signing anyone, can we not do better work in the summer to make sure we aren't where we are now without barely a defender to call on. The question in yesterdays minutes didn't even mention January. They had also left out the loan signing thing. I asked if they would be prepared to use the loan market to sign players in positions we were short
  15. out of interest, why the f*** do you bother with the whole charade? It seems quite interesting at the time, and you hope you're going to get something worthwhile out of it. The minutes don't really show how the debate evolves and much of the disagreement. The question I asked at the last one about MYM was answered and I think it was the first time the club had communicated their reasoning. I didn't agree with it though. The minutes don't really show how strongly people are putting their points across and I suppose you hope you can have some influence. For example, when people were talking a
