are they looking to find ways of bringing a new fan base into the club?  wonder if they think they've done enough to lose the current fan base.

And for a boycott (sorry loki679), the details of which game it is need to be revealed well in advance, like a month or more before the game, before the tickets go on sale.

it's unquestionably too early for a bouycott like, no f***ing point talking about it

start by hitting the sky games before xmas with something visual like a late walk in, when he f***s us in january and we're rushing headlong to relegation then is the time to pull out the bigger guns

baby steps basically, our soopafans just won't do it (might never tbh)

What if he lets us spend a bit in January. Not unprecedented, it happened with McClaren, and we all know he'll return to form after that because leopards/spots. But it'll placate the masses enough if he does it, and I reckon there's a decent chance he will.

For my money, any boycott should be before the January window. Otherwise we risk him doing just enough to force us to push it back to the summer.

If we spend in Jan we wont be spending in the following summer.

Yeah, you're right. Let's just #wait.

There's always next window...

I think that might well happen, although if we have an upturn in form before then he might well decide not to bother. He's clearly rattled hence suddenly turning up at games now, and offering meals and holidays to the squad and management staff.

New Years Day game v Man Utd would be the ideal game for the boycott.

We need to start winning games and get out the bottom 3 for a boycott to be successful imo. Ideally mid table going nowhere with nothing at stake. Easier for potential buyers to come in for the club then too.

Too early, need to be mid table, needs to be on tele...

Anyone would think some fans don't WANT to boycott.

I know what your saying, personally I’ve boycotted this season but in an ideal world - to get the maximum amount of people on board as possible - it’d be great if we were out the bottom 3, so are people are more comfortable, with ‘nothing to play for’.

But yes, I agree it needs to happen one way or the other at some point over he next few months.

It be the absolute worst.

Pick a low key fixture that’s to be televised and promote the boycott before tickets go on sale and we be in with a chance of cutting the crowd in half.

People who say it needs to be on tele, a televised game will most likely be against a "top" side, putting people off boycotting.

The craic about needing a televised game is also misleading. All of our games are televised, just not in the UK. It's arguably a bigger problem for the premier League if the overseas broadcasters start kicking off about empty stadia etc etc

on telly what would have more impact would be a 70 min walk out- would also get the support of many of the support the team fans.

There is no way mike is a fit & proper owner for a business like HOF let alone our football club. Instead of chanting at games we should petition the premier league & FA to investigate the relationship between him/SD and our club. Mike Ashley should be disqualified from football club ownership.
Help us, Rafa Benítez. You're our only hope.

Empty stadiums aren't good for the PL.

Because overseas broadcasters buy the concept and experience of the premier League - full stadiums, the fans, great players etc. The product is fundamentally damaged and harder to flog if the stadiums are empty

Football clubs need some sort of protected status and legislation to protect the fans specifically. Fear the ship has sailed now the premier league is so established though.

The people we are trying to target are more than likely restricted to official outlets.

Yeah, big money rules now. But it's possible the leagues could introduce a rule than in the event of administration or other insolvency event, that club's league membership is conditional on a meaningful % of the shares in the club being sold to supporters groups or trusts.
