It’s a very good move by Newcastle to at last listen to the concerns of their fans, and although long overdue, it’s nevertheless a positive first move.
Derek LLambias – will listen to Newcastle fans – good!
The Newcastle Managing Director Director Derek Llambias and the Newcastle Board have agreed to answer the fans’ questions, and they can submit their questions via the Evening Chronicle’s website.
The plan as described by the Evening Chronicle today is that the 12 most popular questions will be submitted to the Newcastle Board, who will then respond.
Newcastle fans are unhappy at the lack of a top number 9 striker at the club, but since Ashley has been the owner, things have been made much worse by the club’s unwillingness to engage the Newcastle fans.
We hope this is the first in a number of moves by the Newcastle Board to listen to the fans more, and go forward together. There were only just over 42,000 fans at the last home game against Fulham, and that has to be a worrying sign for the club.
This is a good move by Newcastle, and the fans also have to play their part too, and not let their anger affect them too much, but its going to be very interesting to see what the top 12 questions turn out to be.
And it will be even more interesting to see what the club’s answers are to those questions, and possibly we can then understand better the club’s directions.
It would be good if say a small group of three or four fans could meet with the Board face to face, to go over the 12 questions and then hear the responses from the Newcastle Board directly.
We’re sure it would be easy enough to get three or four fans who would be willing to meet with the Board and represent the Newcastle fans.
But of course they cannot then accost the Newcastle Board members, and it would all have to be done professionally, which we’re sure it would be, with the appropriate people representing the fans.
There’s no doubt this is a positive first move by the Board and it should be well received.
Get those questions in.
