  2. Not that I’m into this thread particularly but the purpose of it is pretty evident if you look back to the first post. Also, was it not just a “positive optimism” thread pre-Saudi takeover? The point being that the thread is here to be a lighthearted antidote to the misery elsewhere.
  3. Shot up to £36000 on the counter now...wonder if it’s just catching up?
  4. With any fan led initiative anywhere you will always get people that you don't like. Pretty sure the likes of Bartomeu isn't liked at Barca, but that's why there are democratic processes...well done for pledging!
  5. The chat from the Hearts lads on the launch event was inspirational. Finally feeling something for this club again.
  6. It’s a natural protective response isn’t it though? Constant negativity and snarky remarks have a real impact on people you now, and contributes to burnout. There have been loads of other protests and actions which have stopped, with people giving up for this very reason. Constructive feedback I’m sure is preferable. I do find the mentality of an NUFC that chooses to slate fan led action very odd. It’s as if the idea of having some kind of hope is an affront to them personally.
  7. I mean the thing that has given me the greatest joy this season was when the fans donated the PPV money to the foodbank. At least it was something positive.
  8. Long term whether it's PIF or someone else trying to buy us, I support fan ownership as an alternative and the Trust is the best way to do that. I'm in this for the long game - I have a 2 year old that I want to take to the match at some point. I don't care if it takes 10-15 years, if they can keep snowballing away. On another note, I cannot get my head around this "hard earned cash" trope - I understand if people are genuinely broke fair enough, but otherwise...chucking in £10 or £20...will you miss it? Really? I'm by no means a well off person, but I can easily spend best part of a £1
  9. Deleted my account on here last year because NUFC is so depressing. However, I wanted to post on this because I feel like the loudest voices on this sort of thing are always the whiners. I think it's a great idea, and in fact it's the only option we have really. Okay it might take a while, and it's not guaranteed to work, but fan ownership has to be attempted at least. It's a strategy that at least we have some control over, whereas deciphering pictures of bread on twitter really isn't. We've seen how close we are to relegation this year. We have no idea how the pandemic and a relegation
