Best guess , they will be promoting fans buying some tiny percentage of the club alongside PIF as a veneer for Salman Bin murdering bastard and they will assure us all that this will push the takeover in our favour ( it won't ) so join up and be part of the takeover . £ 1 and you too can rub metaphorical shoulders with the murdering Saudi regime ...

 

cool story bro

Ashley has done an unbelievable job of splitting Newcastles fan base, it seems to be about 10 groups of fans with totally different opinions of the club and each other with a load of long timers just giving up altogether

He hasn't really done anything IMO, it's just how fans are. Football fans are a captive audience, precisely what makes them so easy to take the piss out of.

I contemplated joining the trust, but I stepped back and looked at what they did, I looked at what change they have made .

In truth not a lot

 

So why join them , what is their point? This is not “having a go” as many seem to put time into it but for why, what is it achieving ? 
 

ok, what am I doing? Nowt, it’s not me , I stopped going , I thought that’s all I could do tbh. This group influences not a lot from looking at it but fair play if they are, I just don’t see what if anything they have done tbh.

 

Anyhow , Thursday we will know.

I signed up to be a member of the trust when they had their facelift/relaunch.  I thought they'd be more of an 'ashley out' movement but that's probably partly my fault in not finding out/asking what their objectives were.  They seem to do some good things but if I'm being honest a lot of it passes me by.  The emails come in, give them a quick once over and delete them.  Don't feel they represent my voice particularly well but then I've never been one for making my opinions known to them.

Gotta say though I'm worried about what tomorrow's announcement is going to be.

Why you worried?

Thing is. Being part of a constituted trust you can know that when you ask members that their responses are tangible and evidenced and any activities have credibility. I’m involved and have collaborated with multiple fan groups and most people/groups are great and devoid of ego. One bad faith actor or headcase, or lack of constituted strategy can derail the whole thing and despite attempts for unity. Lack of structure or hierarchy prevents this - hence why the trust is useful as it has a permanence. I’m a member and I have frustrations with it’s priorities but it does t just represent my priorities but those of far bigger numbers than any fragile group I’ve been involved in.

That’s nothing to do with Ashley, it just took “some” people a lot longer to get up to speed with the internet

Yep. I don’t know him personally and not saying he doesn’t speak well etc but his type is the exact reason why we are in this mess. He said he doesn’t want to think too much about decisions the club makes and just wants to get back in SJP asap.
 

So the club is actively self sabotaging itself but he is just happy to turn a blind eye to all of it and trudge back in and give Ashley his money without realising the impact of his actions or even being open to change by stopping going. How about he and the other sheep does start to think about the decisions that the club makes then maybe we could all get on the same page in action against Ashley. It’s why we are in this position now and have failed to do anything of note towards getting Ashley out. Too many fans ( sheep) happy to just put their head in the sand and stubbornly continue going to games without even thinking of any boycotts/protests etc @HaydnNUFC

Assuming this is a dig, personally not been to games since Benitez left due to anger at him leaving and also logistics due to moving to uni, took part in all of the SP, AO and MG protests prior to chucking it. But if you want to aim that same post over and over again at someone I'm probably not the best choice.

If not then apologies, could've just quoted my post instead of passive aggressively throwing my name at the end of that paragraph about how much you hate the matchgoers.

Maybe 'worried' is the wrong word but just think whatever it is it's going to be something else to divide and not unite us.  

Ignore me tho.... I'm having a bad week and everything is "half empty" just now.

I’m not sure there’s much hype, it’s just a couple of social media posts from a fan group. 

Not much hype you say? Seriously? Calling it the most ambitious fan led project in the history of the sport?

I know @Greg does tremendous work with the NUST. Whatever they have planned for tomorrow I have no doubt that they will have worked hard on it and will have the best intentions. However I can’t see they are to get anywhere whilst Ashley is the owner of the club, even if what they are planning has had approval by the club, then the club will be quick to pull the rug from underneath them.

From an NUFC point of view there isn’t really anything they can do to fix things whilst Ashley is owner. Fans will never have enough money to buy the club or even a portion of the club. Let’s say they got a seat on the board, it will be nothing more than a token gesture. The real change as far as NUFC goes, comes from Ashley selling up. Sadly to say NUST are powerless in their efforts to make meaningful change for NUFC, although I know they are active in the drive to change football as a whole.
