You guys couldn't organise a protest, let alone a football club?
He/she obviously meant to send it to Gold, Sullivan & Brady.
Can we have Eug as a speaker at the next meet?

Can you imagine a grown man so cowardly that he is scared to debate people even from behind a keyboard...

Perhaps he's only got one hand free to type?

Let's get some pictures out there and crush those who doubt us.

This movement is on the up, proud to be a part of it today. Really felt as one and enjoyed the sing song. As one mentioned, a fantastic version of bubbles at the end. Slow and moving.

Let's get a good sound system. We need proper speakers used for semi pro singing. Happy to chip in for this.

Onwards and upwards

Went today to support one of my best mates who is 100% anti board.

The speeches especially UTJs (great to bump into you before BTW sorry I kinda gave a quick goodbye but my mums not well so I was talking to her) convinced me that this is worth investing my time into.

For a first time a good turnout. Needs to snowball now.

He joined in 2016, took him 3 years to compile that amazing wonderful first post of his. So a few days for his 2nd post, all one sentence of it probably took a lot out of him. :wink:

Huge respect to all those that attended. Really hope the movement grows and today marks the beginning of the end.

Yes, me too. I'm thinking something on a huge scale, they will truly have to take notice of. It is just a case of galvanising mass support. That will come in time

Without wanting to piss on your chips, Reuters (who I used to work for) have literally thousands of snappers across the globe. Most just end up in an archive so if a mainstream outlet picks this story they'll simply buy the images off of Reuters- think getty images.

Great to be part of it today, by my reckoning there was well over a thousand attending , i was about 20 yards from speakers and was struggling to hear, not those speaking fault , they’ll put that right next time , the important thing was those that could not hear didn’t leave. This was the first major stone thrown in the pond, the ripples will spread and gather force until the waves are crashing at the foundation’s of their cocooned ivory tower.
Big thanks to organisers and speakers, keep spreading the word :crest:

What would make matters really uncomfortable for them and would in my view, probably make them quit, would be for 60,000 people in the stadium to rise as one and chant incessantly, non stop, GS&B out! ~ Think Villa Park semi final v Nottingham Forest in 1991 and that fantastic non stop 'Johnny Lyall's Claret and Blue army. We kept that up for nearly 90 minutes, so it can be done. Its just a question of a leader to start the whole thing in motion, because people are like sheep. they follow
