Think the first game of the season is the worst time to have a protest like. Anticipation is strong, football has been away for a while and at least for now, we're not totally s***. I swore I had no interest in watching but even I went out of my way to watch on Sunday. I suspect many others are the same.

Like Yorkie says, only defeats will turn the match going crowd. Many refuse to see the bigger picture. If it was February and we were 6 points adrift at the bottom or on a winless run, there would be more appetite for it.

Simply, I dont think we are s*** enough yet. It will come though. Without doubt.

Totally agree on this, once Brewcie gets his feet firmly under the table and he's binned the fancy dan foreign muck for English blood and thunder and we're still getting whacked at the bottom of the table opinions will change.

However that will just lead the press to confirm we're deluded and fickle like they've always said, double edged sword I'm afraid.

No offense lads but that stuff is just pathetic horseshit, aye he's crap but his signing in his past jobs are from all over the world, he's many things but not what you're inferring there like.

Exactly. He doesn't care if you're black, brown, yellow (orientals make very good workers).

And he's signed El-Mohammady seven times.

Its certainly not what I was inferring. He's always been more than happy to sign foreign players, even early on in his career. Christoph Dugarry saved his Birmingham side from relegation one year.

I dont think the blood and thunder comment is about that though. If anything, its his rejection of modern tactics that have been shaped on the continent and that attitude of many of his contemporaries such as Pardew, O'Neil and Moyes that grit, determination and team spirit are more important than well thought out game plans. You could even argue that tactical nous is more important than ever in the premier league era.

How many managers have an initial flurry of success then fade away as they fail to replicate it when the game moves on? There's tonnes. The game adapts, the game changes and no more so than in the past few years. Managers have to learn to adapt to change, switch their methods up and incorporate new ideas. Look at Mourinho and his failure in his last two jobs. This is Steve Bruce's 20th year or so in management, with his last 'sucessful' premier league spell being 9 years ago. The evidence is already there. Whatever he had that worked for him and his teams (if it ever really did work) doesnt work anymore. He's finished, he's old hat and he's destined to fail.

Lol, just saw that TF bloke on MOTD2 for our game. Awful stuff.
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

TF definitely seem more cosy with this version of the club all of a sudden though, has Michael Martin sacked it off now?

Think he's just a contributor.

The rest all sit on the board of NUST; they all want to be further involved with NUFC and get coin doing so. This was also my issue with the supporters trust being the same people as the fanzine. The fanzine slowly loses it's objectivity as they want to be involved with the club albeit I didn't think it would happen so soon. Same happened down the road when Roker Report became a club mouthpiece for the Don because he bought them a Maccy D's.

They don’t make money do they? Where from?

I agree they shouldn’t be involved with the club at all though, that’s what I asked on their live stream the other week.

Oh right, but I was assumed just enough to keep it going. ‘Making coin’ suggested they’d be motivated by money, I guess the amounts would be tiny.

The point remains I suppose, like a lot of outlets they have a symbiotic relationship with the club so they’re not completely free to hammer it.

The worst of it all is that the NUST survey was overwhelmingly in support of a boycott, yet several of them (including the Chair of the trust, no less) decided to publicly flaunt the fact that they were attending. Massively disappointing.

Not necessarily for themselves but to fund their ever growing activities such as trips abroad etc. Club gives them a bit of access and the circle goes round wider.

That’s the line I pushed and what I still don’t understand. This is the very time we should be least engaged with the club, and they used it to attract new members for an organisation that requires a relationship with it.

They cited day-to-day things like getting repairs done and facilities for disabled fans etc. All that just seems utterly irrelevant in these times.

Feel like it's been downhill for TF ever since they went against the boycott in December.

They've steadily raised their profile but also their egos have massively inflated at the same time.

Ffs guys I wasn't suggesting he was racist or anything like that, I was having a dig at his dinosaur "tactics" and inability to deal with flair much like most other PFMs who prefer good old blood and thunder, sliding tackles and big lumping strikers to punt it to, give me some credit.

Surely the focus should turn to a boycott of the Leicester Carabao cup game. Attendances are crap in this competition anyway, the club have held cup competitions in complete disdain for the entirety of Ashley's tenure, and we're blatantly going to get chinned. There is no reason for any sane person to go to this game and spend extra cash on it.

This...they wont be going any way,you get the dads who take the kids going to this one,less expensive, first match types and teenagers with their mates.
Its likely to be on tv as well so usual punters wont bother.
Stupid game to boycott and not a real test of feeling and still too early in the season,not enough losses by that point.

The club will massively discount the Leicester game so people will see it as a cheap opportunity to take the wife and all the kids. Still the summer holidays too so kids are off next day so getting in late isn't an issue. There'll be 25k there.
