@Unbelievable Was also down to a lot of hard work by yourself setting things up. Good to see that banner again. Forgotten I’d left it with you as your Christmas present when I visited. Seems so long ago. Dread to think how big your kids are now. 2015? 🙂

I hate stuff like this and I see David Squires has liked it so no doubt it will be in his cartoon

 

There's always someone worse off, not once have we compared ourselves to Bury etc but that doesn't mean we've not suffered in the last 14 or so years.

Yes, though I remember peak of that was someone texting into bbc live feed ages ago saying newcastle fans aren't long suffering you should try being an arsenal fan! There are a lot of fans let down by their clubs, their owners and incompetent football administration and there should be solidarity between such fans rather than poking who has it worse off

Clubs are always going to be worse off, it's all relative. We've said we've had a shit 14 years then you just get "YEAH BUT BOLTON AND BURY". What, so we can't complain? The house allusion I made, you can't want to improve your house because there's homeless people about? Piss off man.

Tbf it's quite difficult to quantify what Ashley did to the club if you haven't lived it. Relegations and financial catastrophe are much more easily understandable than "he took the hope away"

Such an infantile point. Were considerably bigger than all of those clubs so of course our suffering will be different and relative. Hartlepool, Darlington, Scarborough and York would envy those teams. I feel for all of them and if we were their size under Ashley we'd have had the same experience and had the same blind-eye from the media and PL that we had anyway.

We were deliberately held back by the owner for his benefit, not just stupidly ran like all of those with the exception of Blackpool.

Not many clubs get 50k regularly in the second tier because a club that gets 50k regularly in the second tier shouldn't be in the second tier.

 

By the same token nobody in Britain can complain about anything compared to suffering elsewhere in the world, though I bet Nick does umpteen times today alone.

It's also why I don't give a fuck about any "big 6" fans opinions.

It’s been the same argument for years, “yeah well you aren’t out of business! So be happy”! It’s so stupid. Yes there is a degree where it’s fair, for instance someone in a Lambo crying about not getting the latest upgrade. But in this context it makes zero sense.

So true. It used to be that way. Nobody took pleasure from what happened at Brighton and Aldershot in the 90s. That's pretty much what 606 used to be about - now its 50year old d*ckheads playing games. Bad ownership has always made me uncomfortable probably having come up through McKeag and co but it seems its a laughing matter to a lot of the fans and people in football since the millennium.

The only people I'd wish Ashley on are the people that have the theory he did nothing wrong and enjoyed what happened to us.

Yeah that’s what I would like, the “he has kept them up and what do they expect “ crew. I would LOVE them to get  Ashely for 14 years. That’s the thing that people don’t get at almost every other club the manager does badly and is protested against, hes sacked. The owner starts fucking up, he gets forced to sell. The massive difference is that we haven’t had that, it’s been over a decade ffs.

Obviously this is an isolated incident with Ashley. He's never branched out and fell foul of fans anywhere else, and for a far shorter duration than our own.:tumbleweed:

 

Just them silly entitled Geordies think they deserve this and that. They only used to get 2k fans in 1920.

It's the Month Python Yorkshiremen sketch. Supposed to be impressed because someone else has had it shitter. Unlucky lads, we're absolutely fucking massive now.
