    Lyn Spencer. She was a teacher at my secondary school in the late 80's. Married that baldy c*** Roger Thames iirc It was Paddy McDee.
  2. Because it didn’t look a fifth down, and in anyway 42,000 turned up at a boycott, a waste of fucking time man. It did like. Lots of areas with huge swaithes of empty seats. Back of the Gallowgate, Upper Leazes, all over Level 7, Platinum club all well under 80% occupied and loads of 2s, 3s and 4s empty dotted around the rest of the ground, even in the central seats in the East Stand. I think low 40k or in other words 80% full looked about right. Certainly no more than that. Much less people inside than at any game last season and we dipped to 48k v Burnley as a comparison. Also the s
  3. After supporting them all my life and nigh on 40 years a ST holder I along with my wife and two sons cancelled the DD's in January. My sister and brother in law are not renewing. My next door neighbour, a platinum club member from day one isn't and i know of at least 8 more who have catagorically told me if that if Rafa leaves they will also not be renewing. This is my small circle of friends, I believe the folk saying there'll be 50,000 present against Arsenal are in for a shock.
  4. For the folk asking where's this and that here's an insight as to what happened. We talked about this last year and actually started the gofundme 5 months ago and out it on our Twitter etc. I can't remember the exact figure but in the first month it slowly got up to £700 or so., but then with all the anti Ashley and pro Rafa campaigns it was put on the back burner. We thought about abandoning the idea and giving the money back or giving it one last blast thinking it would crawl along and we'd do it for next season all being well with Rafa. With this in mind we told Dan our designer he had mon
  5. It's a Greggs shop, we didn't want to fully advertise it so we just put their logo on
  6. Basically lads the timelines are incredibly tight, we ordered yesterday due to getting the design sorted, it's going to take 270 hours printing then needs sewing together. It won't be ready until the morning of the 2nd and we need it in toon by Friday night or early sat am at the latest . We don't yet know what time the Liverpool game is, it could be 12.30, nobody's sure. We can't leave it to chance on the day so we need a trial run getting it out and in so we thought it better to collect ourselves so it's totally in our own hands. The price I was quoted for haulage was £1200 and we've had
  7. It is mate, loads of mags in the Norwegian sector
  8. Now there's an idea, imagine if we added Penshaw monument 😂
  9. Be next season now, we're doing brilliant but still need a hell of a lot more. We'll still be doing displays this season though, we wont stop just because we're fundraising for the giant flag.
  10. Absolutely, places like Consett and especially Stanley are pretty much mag. I'm 56 so I remember when everything south of the Tyne was Co Durham.
  11. Nothing's finalised yet but to be fair there's loads of mags in Co Durham. I can't speak for the whole group but for me personally I don't really care what them lot down the road think.
  12. Apparently there's a comments bit on the main gofundme page ? Sorry I'm useless at modern technology !
  13. Funny you should say that, we're going to try to encourage that for firstly Everton but also for every match so it just becomes the norm.
  14. Hiya lads and lasses, just to give you all an update. We decided to get a new surfer a while back as WAU is getting a bit bashed and needs a bit of TLC so we set up a gofundme 5 months ago but due to the general air of gloom it sort of took a back seat. Since Almiron's arrival there seems to be a bit of a buzz around again and after the reaction to his display we thought we'd test the water and push it again thinking there might be a little bit of interest. Bloody hell its gone nuts ! We're only pushing it on FB and Twitter so far but we've raised nearly 4 grand in 2 days !! The WAU was
  15. Like I say we decided to keep it pro manager and team inside. Certain individuals actions stopped any momentum on the protests outside but that's another story. Any anti Ashley stuff from us will have us closed down immediately, not because club employees would want to do this , we've had nothing but help from a lot of them,one in particular. I can't see the point in producing something that will cause the end of something that in my humblest the majority of fans like. We did argue long and hard about using the WAU surfer given its title but we decided to go ahead purely to support the team
