The SD signs are no more. What should happen now?

  1. 1. The SD signs are no more. What should happen now?

    • The ground should be kept as 'clean' as realistically possible, with any replacement signs erected only in the most subtle fashion, with the most visually prominent sections remaining clear
    • Some significant/large signs would be fine, but not to the same amount/extent as the SD signs - providing that NUFC actually benefits from those revenue opportunities
    • The SD signs can be replaced with something else exactly like-for-like - providing that NUFC actually benefits from those revenue opportunities
    • They own the club, they can do whatever the hell they like, paint it green for all I care
  2. 2. Is it important that the 'Newcastle United' text on the East Stand is changed to something not in the SD font?

The building work has stopped because the developer has went busy and they have sold the land to a different developer who they do not know if they are going to go ahead with the proposals.

 

Also he forgets to mention that or is failed to be informed that the development around the Strawberry pub will not impact on the viability of SJP at all, and is a separate development.

 

Lastly, if we were to move away from SJP, which I don’t think will be in the consortiums thinking, it would likely mean that NUFC would have to surrender the lease back to the Freeman of the city and would no longer be able to use the site for any other activity.

Apparently the Sports Direct tat is soon to be down. They are or have negotiated a cessation of the deal.

 

This has turned me right on. You heard anything about the timeframe - might it be done this week?

I think it’ll be started this week but that’s just my own hunch based on things I’ve heard from those working on the inside.

 

They have their first big event this week for the foundation with loads of former players being flown in. It wouldn’t surprise me if they announce a few things to go along with it.

 

Also, when it comes down, they’ll make a big deal out of it. Photos, video etc. It’ll be a thing.

They better not stop at just bringing the SD tat down, need to change the ‘Newcastle United’ back from his shit font too.

Yep. It’s absolutely lifting. 
 

I remember being there when it was coming down and the SD signage going up. I was working as a coach at the club at the time and was in the ground getting some kids to sign contracts in front of the new sign. 
 

I posted it on here and everyone was losing their shit. I think that was around 10 years ago. Can’t wait to get rid of it.

Didn't Ashley sell them and then whoever got them sold them off for charity or something? Would love to get some that are backlit. 

Yeah, I'm fairly sure some, or maybe all, went on eBay or alternative. Don't know if that was the official policy in terms of auction but I do recall them being purposefully sold off.

Nah, they're reporting that we have three games (away) at stadiums that are part of the trial?


this.


“The trials will take place at the home stadiums of Championship club Cardiff City, as well as four Premier League outfits – Man Utd, Man City, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Which means that some Newcastle United fans can look forward to be safe standing at Chelsea (currently Saturday 12 March), Tottenham (currently Saturday 2 April) and Man City (currently Saturday 7 May). United having already played away at Man Utd this season.“
