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.
