I'm seeing a bunch of apathetic sheep accepting their fate with absolutley zero fight against the fat cunt that is DESTROYING not only the club but the whole vibe of the city of Newcastle aswell.

Not that many games ago that you where part of those 'sheep' (always a sign of an argument or viewpoint lost), it must be marvellous to be so virtuous so quickly.

Yes i was, but i at least protested in the ground even if i was on my own, i wouldn't just sit on my hands and accept what was going on.

The fat cunt was there today again, after sticking two fingers up at the people of Newcastle, and there were next to no chants against him, it is fucking sickening.

Maybe you were chanting againts him, and fair play if you were, though i have a feeling you weren't.

it's bloody mental....another protest organised yesterday to call ashley a fat cunt outside the ground before the match....then they go inside where he's actually sitting and turn all shy and (dare I say) sheepish. Big Grin

RE: Organised boycott of a game

They were "supporting the team" instead apparently.

It is always going to be an issue that is close to the bone with some people, but fuck me, it is surely time for people to stop going now.

There is nothing there.

RE: Organised boycott of a game

I just don't feel that there are enough people willing to sacrifice their own pleasure (arf) of going to the game to try and get rid of Ashley, or even do ANYTHING at all about it, like attending a protest/meeting, or getting at him online.

Too many zombie supporters that Ashley relies on.

Wake up and DO SOMETHING, no matter how small it might seem at the time.

Stop doing nothing at all if you love Newcastle.

Half price pies and pasties at the Wolves match will scupper the boycott.

He can't be anything but Liam

Obviously I get that he has been there and done it all but his handling of Ashley has left me mystified from virtually day one

RE: Organised boycott of a game

It was the statement from him and the players once they got their bonus (rightly or wrongly) fettled that bothered me. I’m done with the cunts altogether.

RE: Organised boycott of a game

I don’t care if you have a dog called Shearer, two sons named Tino and Milburn and a tattoo of the Robledo brothers on each arse cheek, if you take your seat inside St.James Park on the 9th of December 2018 you are not a supporter of Newcastle United, you’re a supporter of Mike Ashley.

You will be saying “I’m with Mike.” I cast my vote for your manifesto Mr. Ashley. 11 more years of this please.

You won’t be black and white, you’ll be red and blue.

You might as well start up a chant of “There’s only one Sports Direct! One Sports Direct! Walking along, singing a song, walking in a Mike Ashley wonderland.”

The words that come out of your mouth may very well be: “I’m not boycotting. Not me pal. I support the team! I’ve been going for X (insert figure here) years and I’m not missing the match”But you will be heard by him and the watching billions around the world as saying “I endorse no investment. I enjoy just trying to survive rather than thrive. Not trying in cups year after year is ok by me. I like being lied to. I approve of Sports Direct logos being more important than the club badge. I agree to free advertising and the suppression of millions of pounds of income. I welcome no maintenance of the ground and it falling into disrepair but want new shiny Sports Direct signage installed. I don’t like playing in Europe. I think we can’t compete with smaller clubs. Yes, Brighton and Bournemouth should be massively outspending us. I advocate for the players to have inferior training facilities. I agree that growing our Academy and nurturing local youth is a waste of time and money.”

You almost certainly will have missed a game before because you were on holiday, a wedding or ill. The club is now ill. It needs our help. Newcastle United has a cancer at its heart. A dark tumour slowing killing it. How can you quite literally sit there and do nothing?

Ask yourself why Mike Ashley chooses to own Newcastle United. Ask yourself why the ground has more Sports Direct logos than one of his shops. It’s the audience of billions and the prestige of association with our club and the Premier League that people love to watch across the world.

The reach of the Premier League is now reportedly one billion homes across 189 countries. That’s who he’s interested in. That’s who we need to get our message about what we think of the owner of Sports Direct to. That’s who we want to shame Mike Ashley in front of.

The word ‘boycott’ actually comes from the Irish land war. In the autumn of 1880 people in County Mayo protested against a greedy landlord Captain Charles C. Boycott who had evicted families unfairly. The people in the area all decided to socially ostracise him and not enrich him further by refusing to work on his land.

The organised action taken against him meant that Boycott was unable to hire anyone locally to harvest his crops until he eventually bribed 50 people to do the work from out of the area. These 50 people had to be escorted to and from the land by one thousand policemen and soldiers. This protection ended up costing Boycott far more than the harvest itself was worth.

Boycott left Ireland just a few months later on 1 December 1880, and moved back to the south east of England.

They probably had people saying “It’ll never work” and “what’s the point.” It worked and you will never anything if you do nothing. Are you with Keegan or Wise? Are you with Jonas or Llambias? Are you with Shearer or Charnley. Are you with Newcastle United or Ashley?

Please do not go through the turnstiles for the Wolves game. It’s bigger than 3 points. It’s bigger than this season. It’s bigger than relegation. It’s bigger than keeping Rafa. It’s about who we are.

We’ve had enough and it has to change.

I was far from borderline and am happy to boycott the rest of days if it were to be backed, I wont be going to the Wolves game for certain.

Not sure why those words would turn someone in the other direction?

Anyone who is aware of it and still goes to that game is part of the problem.

I don't care what Rafa says either, it's bigger than him.

Telling somebody who obviously is still keen to go to the match that they don't support Newcastle and that they support Mike Ashley if they take their seat at the Wolves game??

You really think that is likely to sway someone who was borderline to boycott ??


So someone has now decided that Wolves is THE game after a decade of him taking the piss as the one which decides whether you are a true Newcastle fan or a supporter of Ashley??


What a crock of shite

Organised boycott of a game

Aye the words are perhaps overkill but I guess its the writers intention to try and drive his own opinion home.

Yes someone has decided this is the match, or a collective have, alongside all of the other organised nuisances that have been and are continuing to go on.

Maybe a boycott of one game is pointless, probably is, but this campaign has legs and a lot of support for it, I think the least folk should do is concede on not going to one single match of many just to add more weight to the argument.

Its not about money, or matchday experience or supporting the lads, its about just backing the only real movement of annoyance to Ashley that there has been since he got here.

Whats one single match? Folk can still do their matchday routine, just dont go into the ground, watch it in the pub or whatever.

I know you, (Mc) gave up your ticket so its a lot more than just one single match at your end, but I didnt get to that point when you did, nor a lot of others. This campaign is the only thing that has been worth following, and I dont even mean sheep mentality, I mean desperate mentality, and the fan base have a duty to at least try to back whatever they decide to put in place - Otherwise I agree that we deserve Ashley.

Organised boycott of a game

I think you might have picked me up wrong Sal - I'm totally behind the boycott and I think the work and thought that has gone into the whole proposal is excellent

I just think its a hearts and minds exercise but the tone of that letter was all wrong for me

ask people to boycott, plead with people to boycott but don't tell them that they are not true Newcastle fans if they don't dance to someone elses tune - that's exactly what has been causing the division in the fan base for the past 10 years

Aye he has went a little far with the language / tone of it for sure.

I think its a desperate plea with an ill advised angle if anything.

Fans need to get behind all of this, there wont be another effort like it if this one doesnt get the backing needed to give it a chance of success.

There really will be no point in footy anymore if we cant pull together now. Or no point in footy for NUFC anyway.
