Mund I didn’t think it would get past 50k but we might need to NUST or whomever to network it across other clubs fans. Some won’t want to know because they don’t want nufc to have money and be a threat, or because of human rights etc but plenty will be anti establishment enough to sign up.

Antonio Conte could be free soon. Would have loved him at nufc.

Munster there’s no sign of slowing.
We have to have the fight inside us to be able to want to fight.
We can make a difference being United.
If we don’t succeed with the petition then it’s on to the next plan, no matter what we can’t rest on our laurels we have to keep fighting. Football will never be the same again.

The Henry Winter article which has predictably provoked a predictable response from other predictable clubs fans.
Chelsea fans need to stay silent – or move to the USSR
Liverpool fans need to take a long hard look at themselves after all their ownership struggles
Villa just pending points deductions or will the EPL wash their hands of that decision
Spurs – I rest mt case m’lud
Man City – guilty but let off with a slap on the wrist
Point being that wherever you turn there’s shit
Same Shit Different Day
Any possible exceptions ?
Boro – Gibson seems to have been good and proper for them
Brighton – only point being interest rates on your AMEX card a tad high
Harrogate – onwards and upwards
Sunderland – just a tragic case of neglect

We also need to give them 10 opposing teams hell dont go to their ground dont give them your money

The one Ed put up worked for me
Ed probably thought it was no good
because a gov.com site won’t accept
anything from outside the UK.
I’d look it up but frankly with arseholes
like sing in the corner having constant
pops you can kiss my skinny ass

Saw one gov petition from twitter but too bad it is for UK citizen only.
Aug 3, 2020 at 9:42 AMComment #221
oh sorry, it is “waiting for approval” for signing. Newcastle and its waiting….
Aug 3, 2020 at 9:46 AMComment #222
We will have to ask ed.
Maybe he pulled it because of what jib said or because the other ones momentum was so quick.

the govt petition was taken down for review after a few signatures for review to make sure it ticks the right boxes to proceed. Thats why the Change.org one is the one going round. If we wait for the govt one to be approved, who knows when that will be, then the chances are the whole situation could have dissipated by then.
Lets keep the pressure up for now however we can. right now its the change.org one or nothing.

I just signed it and moved on
Change.org gets a very bad press
Aug 3, 2020 at 9:54 AMComment #225
just spoken to a nice young lady at .gov and she says the petition is not available yet as its still under review, and won’t be available till tomorrow at the earliest ????
