    Didn't we laugh and take the piss out of them up the road with the demos etc. against their wonderful owner.
    If we go down that road we're no better than them. I haven't got the answer to getting shot of our owner, but wouldn't advocate copying anything that they do up the road. Just saying.

    Keeping the academy status would be crucial to our future if the clown in charge had appointed someone half decent to run it and not his mate.

    When SD took over he had the prefect opportunity to restructure the academy to keep a flow of kids coming through that would bolster the first team, sell off to lower league clubs or in Henderson and Pickfords case sell for large sums of money.

    Instead he has overseen a **** up that will set the academy back years

    Often these academies do not bring many players through cheaply though. Many clubs just import their own at a cost. I just think running a prem grade academy when we skint is like running a Ferrari when you can't even pay your mortgage. Same goes for running a ladies team. Just my opinion.

    I get that there's the obsession that we don't want to look like the mags. I think that we're blinded by it, in fact. We are sleepwalking into a third season in League 1 and were looking like doing that before Covid 19 struck.

    Donald can't be forced to sell though.

    Can we make it clear that fans don't support him any more and won't put any more money into the club? See if that will be the wake-up call.

    He is hurting the club and it's got to stop.

    Big difference though they protest mid table in the PL whilst still spending millions and club running well.

    We are in league one looking like club may go under.

    Exactly. It's been a disaster and all happened so quickly. Where we find ourselves now it feels like being in shock after an accident.

    Many clubs would go under before us. We're probably in a relatively good position financially. Calm ya boots.

    Can I just point out that having a demonstration against the owner isn't copying the mags.

    It's just, "having a demonstration against the owner".

    Hope you are correct, but I'm not so sure myself.

    Yep. Far too many are too bothered about "not looking like mags". Not sure who they're trying to impress like, we're already largely seen as a laughing stock. It's almost cuckold behaviour just wanting to be seen to sit accepting any old ****. We need to make it obvious that we aren't happy. I like to think we can do that without mock funerals, horse punching and shop shouting so I'm sure we can easily protest and show displeasure and, at the same time , avoid looking like mags. What we've got at the minute is nowhere near good enough and any fan happy to accept it is part of the problem

    Easy to instigate a professional thought out protest, get the fan groups/zines involved.
    I know (before it’s birth) people involved with RAWA were planning on a March From Keel Sq to the ground with pit bands playing the death march etc. This was weeks before dumb dumber and where’s wally took over.

    Sign up to an agreement to not put any more money into the club, in protest.

    Supporters can add their names like they would with a petition.

    Cuckold? Does that mean we are turning into horny devils?
    Bit obscure I know. I'll be quoting Othello next.
