Fans Must Behave Tomorrow Night – Or Things Could Get Worse


There’s a meeting between fans and Newcastle officials at 6:00 pm tomorrow night, and Joe Kinnear has a standing invitation to attend the meeting.

Joe Kinnear – will he (can he) attend meeting tomorrow night?

It’s been set up by NUFC Fans United, which has been set up to give a voice to Newcastle fans and work with the club, and they’ve been successful recently in getting something done  – when they helped negotiate the deal with Newcastle officials and John Hall’s people to get those iconic gates restored and returned to St. James’ Park.

There’s nothing like success to get some momentum going.

NUFC Fans United representative Ian Cusack talked yesterday, ahead of tomorrow night’s meeting at the Leazes Park Road Labour Club at 6:00 pm, when fans can meet with Newcastle officials to talk though the situation at Newcastle:

This is what Cusack said:

“While I can understand the sense of despair many supporters now feel, it is wrong to throw up our hands and say that we can’t do anything,” “If supporters work together, we will be strong, coherent, effective and we will be listened to.”

“However, and this is of the utmost importance, we must work together.” “Egos, personal spats and historic feuds, need to be put to one side and every concerned Newcastle United fan has to come together as a broad and inclusive alliance.”

“The alliance has been formed from the grassroots up, to express our collective fury and contempt at this decision and, hopefully, the desire to move the club forward.”

We have no idea whether Joe will attend, but last week he said he was to travel to Newcastle over this weekend, but we don’t know whether that’s changed after his talkSPORT interview.

We’ve been in touch with NUFC Fans United about tomorrow night’s meeting and our concern is that one or two fans could submarine the meeting, if they don’t behave themselves.

It’s a very important meeting and it could be the forerunner of other meetings down the road,  where some good communication can happen between Newcastle officials and fans – and it must go well tomorrow night.

Good communication is what’s been badly missing since Mike Ashley took Newcastle over six years ago, and Mike seems to just do what he likes with the club.

Of course that’s his right, but the fans really “own” the club – and the fans have always been the life-blood of the club and that will never change – ever.

Our only caution to fans attending the meeting tomorrow night is please behave,  and it could turn out to be a great meeting.

Here’s hoping.

    Sparky,
    Not sure who I would go for but I would definitely be looking abroad. Paul Clement maybe, assistant at PSG, wants to go into management, English, but speaks French, worked at Chelsea at youth level, seems a decent fit and probably not requiring huge wages as it will be his first manager role. Ancelotti has recomended him as a top future manager.

    think the apology is a bit to late plus the idiot shouldnt have gone on the way he did, not only did he upset the very people who work hard week in week out to go to games but hes also upset the players and other people the mans a walking nightmare, fair enough we wanted rid of penfold and pardew but would have been far simpler for ashley just to sack both of them there and then

    I do blame ashley for all of this he runs the club no one else does so it comes down to him

    Why is he still giving interviews. Slagging Shearer off in the Sunday times. He needs to be sedated. According to him, just 10% of fans don’t want him!!!

    Sparky,
    Maybe, that would be my choice, trying to stick within financial and reputation constraints.

    As for who Ashley would pick, we supposedly spoke to Graham Westley either when Hughton got the job, and he was held in high regard by Ashley. Also, he used to live in Ashleys area, so it fits with the employing people he might know category. Not sure how he has got on since, but I wouldn’t rule that one out.

    Tudor,
    Pitchfork sales? I think you need a lie down. I can only assume from that comment you are confusing Saturn, a planet in our galaxy, with Satan, the bloke who is (according to some sources) a fallen angel who has turned to evil and houses all those who do evil on earth.

    I suppose they are similar though, and you seem easily confused.

    He’s well out of touch with football if he can’t get our players’ names right. That’s about all you need to know.

    How can he give the nod to which players to bring in when he hasn’t heard of Douglas or hasn’t heard Cabaye or Ben Arfa enough to call them by their correct names.

    You could give someone a hypothetical scenario of recent events and people would laugh it off and tell you not to be stupid.

    Unfortunately the hypothetical is the pathetic in this case and we still already have the clueless Pardew steering the ship without a rudder.

    i think tomorrows meeting is going to be a very strange affair. F irstly i dont think JFK will show his face for the same reasons Pards cancelled his Q and A with the fans the end of season, If he does make an appearance , i’ll show my ar//e in fenwicks window. secondly – NUFC officials ??? who ?? does anyone know which officials will turn up.
    I just think it is going to be a bit of a one sided farce to be honest , but , who knows ? something good may come from it. stranger things have happened .

    Cusack and Ed are right.

    A rowdy and undisciplined gathering would give Ashley and the media something to get their teeth into and ‘justify’ Kinnear’s claims about ignorant fans etc so don’t give them the opportunity

    Noticed the last few posts a few people are swinging round to the kinnear Ashley ideas.some suggesting kinnear knows football well we want pardew to play football as we were pist with the offerings we got. I can’t see Wimbledon footy improving our lads and i don’t think he will attract good players . And if you don’t think Ashley likes making us a laughing stock bills son esp then I don’t know where you have been the last 6 years

    My guess is they only want you to attend to hear your side of it so they can formulate some bullshit story to try and appease the fans. As for Kinnear showing up….pffft….yeah, right.
