New Newcastle United Supporters Club Formed


A new Newcastle United Supporters club has recently formed, which is comprised of various fanzines, such as The Mag, true faith and nufc.com.

The group is composed of veterans from various campaigns such as “save our seats”,  “the magpie group” and a lot more, and basically, this is all the fanzines joining together, and being run by some very professional people, who support the club.

The idea of the Newcastle United Supporters Club (NUSC) is to unite our fans world-wide, and it doesn’t matter where you are based in this world of instant communications.

Late last week a spokesman for the new supporters club gave a very good interview on Radio Newcastle outlining some of the priorities of the new supporters club.

Currently SaveNewcastle.com , which we reported on last week, and Newcastle United Supporters Club are two separate groups with separate plans. However, both groups have been in discussion and the supporters club plans are far along and is backed by some very qualified professionals.

The SaveNewcastle.com people in charge also feel it is very important to have a unified effort, and because of this they are considering rolling their resources into the supporters club efforts, so both plans are unified.

That just shows you the lads are more concerned about the club than their own particular sites and it’s a real pity the Board didn’t also have the club at heart before the deadlock of two weeks ago which has brought utter turmoil to out great club.

Here is a piece that was sent ot me from the committee of the new NUSC:

There was a packed public meeting on Tuesday 16th September, and a further meeting was held on Thursday 18th September, to establish an interim committee.  It was agreed the primary purpose of the new supporters club was to represent the interests of, and provide a voice for the fans of Newcastle United.

The current crisis that faces Newcastle United is the position of Mike Ashley and the perilous state of the football club.  It has unfortunately become apparent that seemingly the only way for NUFC to go forward is for the club yet again to be sold at the earliest possible opportunity.

The hope and expectation being that new owners can work with the supporters to make the club great again, fulfilling the potential that has never been realized in the modern era.

We all know the mess that is Newcastle United hasn’t happened overnight, or indeed just in the time Mike Ashley has spent at the club. Likewise, the current crisis won’t be solved overnight but the committee of NUSC are determined to strive towards positive change.

We will be releasing a further press statement early next week with details of how fans can join us in creating a better future for us all.

Let’s all get behind the new supporters club and help the club in its very urgent need right now.

There’s no doubt we can overcome even these circumstances, and make the club great again.

    Will the representatives for the NUSC be able to get direct contact/meetings with the current NUFC board (ie. Lambias etc) to discuss the issues, minus the current anger and frustration, and be able to relay that back to the fans in an approved/official manner – really to open up the communication that is so badly lacking at the moment?

    If so then this ‘should’ be a great help ..

    Already signed up, it is imperative that we the fans are seen to be behind the team and will work with and offer continuous support to the new owners (when found).

    Being based in Lancashire I could not get up to the Irish Centre last week, but have offered my support / help in anyway I can.

    Yesssssssss! Glad to see this happening.

    Many people say “It’s a dream, it’s impossible, it’s too much money for each supporter, Barca did this a long time ago when it was cheaper” and so on.

    But this is long term thinking. It will take time. I’m no economist, mind, but my feeling is that if you compare the economics of Fan Ownership at the present time to the work done at the beginning of Barcelona’s effort considering inflation, it wouldn’t be all that different.

    ‘it is imperative that we the fans are seen to be behind the team and will work with and offer continuous support to the new owners’

    -loving this line marguerite, but do you really think that’s possible the way our fans are??? surely they’ll turn on the new guy the second things don’t go exactly the way we want, or there’s a well worded fictional story in the papers!???????

    i find it comical that everyone thinks the answer to al our prayers is another new owner, didn’t we have the right guy in a few months ago?!

    I wish people would shut up about us buying the club, even if it does happen we’ll run the club head first into the ground.

    This is great. The fans having somewhere to voice their opinions, and having someone to represent them will be a big PLUS for the TOON.

    Well Clinta I think it is our only option, other than that we are going to sink lower and lower. I hope the supporters’ club can help channel the fans’ energies in a positive way, instead of the fragmented demonstrations of our last home match.

    As to the new owner – can the existing one continue? I think not, he has blown it big time; plus he does not have the money to support the club. It is one thing buying it, but another thing running it.

    A bit like me and my Merc come to think of it!!
