Just voted for Heron. Felt a bit sorry for him as he was the only one without a profile picture.

:lol:

Thank you.
It was my choice by the way. :thup:

It's not about me, it's about what I do to represent you. That's why I didn't want my picture. It hopefully breaks down barriers of it "being all about the egos" too. That's my hope.

Bit of a strange one mate if I am honest, people naturally like to put faces to names.

Probably is strange, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. For years and years there have been accusations of egos and jobs for the boys and all that s***. Yet the successful groups have been those who've been relatively anonymous (AO, SP and WF).

It's not about whether I bring the change that makes the difference, it's that the difference is made.

Just my thought process :thup:

I understand it's a wider football issue, but there's a bit of a diversity issue in that list...

Good luck though Heron. I'll finally sort out my membership and vote.

Cheers mate. In what sense does it lack diversity? (Genuine question)
Everyone on the shortlist is a white man

You've got my vote Heza. I get why you've gone without a photo but I also think you should've put one up. I'd imagine you'll have enough support regardless but there'll be some weirdos who take umbrage at that.

Cheers mate. Cannot win half the time, it's just reducing the number of people who think you're a prick, there's always someone who thinks you're one  :lol:

We can still flog him though, right?

[What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.

Hope he gets a proper send off, I suggest a mock funeral around SJP.

In all seriousness if t***s like him have nothing to do with the trust other than being a paid up member, I’d be far more supportive and happier trusting NUST to represent me in the best interest of myself and likeminded fans who want what’s best for the club and don’t have any agendas or interests to serve first or at any point other than the fans and club.

Agreed, i am now far more interested all of a sudden now that that self serving baldy c*** isn't involved.

Thanks to everyone who voted for me. Sadly it wasn't to be. Maybe I should have listened to some of the advice...

Happy I stood by what I believed though :thup:

It could have gone worse. You could have gotten fewer votes than Paulie Belta.

Dear members, we hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish you all a Happy New Year.

The Newcastle United Supporters Trust attended the recent Ticketing meeting with the club. There were 5 supporters in attendance representing NUFC Fans United, the London Newcastle United Supporters Club & the Newcastle United Disabled Supporters Association, alongside box office staff Stephen Tickle, Kim Scott, and Jan Brien.
 
Here is a list of the main points raised throughout the meeting.
 
Club admits online ticketing office is overprotective and needs fixing ASAP. This is in relation to supporters experiencing being prevented from buying tickets online for 30 days due to “fraud prevention”.
 
Club agreed to release info on how to avoid problems occurring on their online ticket account.
 
Club set aside a certain amount of tickets to ensure fans with 30-day suspensions have access to tickets in person.
 
At the moment, the club has no access to the system that is currently banning fans, meaning they can’t pre-warn fans before the system locks you out. The club also has no access to the information regarding your ban in order to know how long is left on the ban. It was stressed this needs to change.
 
Club say they are looking for a permanent solution to the problems, as it stands, the ticketing system is run by an outside source.
 
Chelsea doesn’t allow general sale which is the reason our tickets never went to the general sale for our visit to Stamford Bridge in October.
 
Club agrees to look at the situation where season ticket holders don’t get a loyalty point if they buy their ticket in the general sale. Fans in this situation are encouraged to contact the box office if this happens to them.
 
Club agrees to release numbers of how many fans are at certain levels in the loyalty point system
 
11 games went to member sale, 8 to general sale in the 2018/19 season, meaning the chance is there for Season Ticket holders to gain more loyalty points.
 
The club will be looking at the potential of improving the away season ticket scheme and will be looking into the possibility of adding people to the scheme once it improves.
 
Club follows procedures set by other clubs when allocating seats to fans. Admit it is pot luck at times. It was raised about being able to view a seating plan for away games but given fans in travel groups have different amounts of loyalty points, it would impact on fans getting seats together.
 
Club has around 30,000 season ticket holders, a drop of around 5000, and around 10000 have taken the free season ticket offer
It was raised that the club has 98% of White British supporters whereas the population of the city is 78% White British. Missed opportunity for the club to release tickets to ethnic minorities to encourage them to come. Concerns over communication between departments of the club.
 
Ticket office staff in attendance saw the positives and negatives of the free season ticket but offered no real opinion on concerns regarding the claim that the free season ticket doesn’t offer any reward to current season ticket holders, given not every season ticket holder benefits.
 
Club happy with the system that only allows fans to buy single seats if just purchasing one ticket, rather than buying a ticket next to another empty one as it then leaves single seats, which are then harder to sell.
 
Club advised by to include the number to report incidents such as discrimination in the ground on the season ticket or in the wallet that comes with the season ticket and to publicise it better through all channels.
 
Burnley Away
 
We received numerous complaints from supporters regarding Burnley Away and the facilities in the away end. We have liaised with Newcastle & the Football Supporters Association and will be writing to Burnley to seek a response.

Key Takeaways
 
•   Club to look into new ticket website problems and provide more information on how to navigate the website successfully.
•   Club to release numbers of how many fans are at certain loyalty points.
•   Club has around 30,000 season ticket holders, a drop of around 5,000 and around 10,000 have taken the free season ticket offer.
