A Geordie Christmas Tale

Recommended Posts

So the NUSC are resigned to not being able to work with the current board?

 

And where does it say that?

 

 

It doesn't, and it's a cracking little poem. It's not exactly an olive branch though.

 

Given the snub to the NUSCs proposal of working together, I don't necessarily have a problem with it if it is the new company line by the way.

BTW Pud, just clicked on other friends on the NUSC site and my mac detected malware, got a message saying 'ignore' or 'go back'. Is that normal? First time i've ever seen that message and i've been on some fucking disgraceful porn sites in my time.

Funny, but probably not the best thing for NUSC to be putting out if they want to maintain their guise as a serious supporters group. In TF or the Mag it would fit right in but it kind of damages any air of professionality around NUSC.

 

Still, it's spot on ;)

That's really naff.

 

The NUSC had started to get some credibility with mentions in the national press and a more serious approach to getting Ashley to communicate. This just puts all that hard work to waste IMO and makes the club look like it doesn't mean business.

 

 

I know it's meant as a joke but as Ketsbaia says, there are places for that kind of thing but not the supporters club.

Is the right answer.

You think?

The statement above it says more about the situation then worrying about a clever rhyme.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the NUSC ask Ashley for a 1 on 1 over a month ago now?

So the "Time Left" statement is another attempt to get something out of the obnoxious lying faceless cunt.

Whoever made the asset stripper comment (kitman I think) has a far better grasp of the current situation than those worrying about Ashley crying at him being compared to Scrooge!

It has to be said, Sammy has a grasp of it like.

 

It does appear that the words of Freddie in there do at times ring true.

 

What we appear to have become is a group of supporters who can never make their minds up when it comes to Ashley, its "fat bastard cunt" here, "oooh dont call him a name" there. A dozen messages a day on this board call Ashley a cunt and nobody bats an eyelid yet a lighthearted look at our current situation comes from the NUSC and suddenly its crass and makes us out to not be a serious organisation.

 

We are coming upto election time and you can guarantee both the Conservatives and Labour will be producing the same sort of things in the run up, as they have done for years, does that make either of them a joke party? No, its an easy on the eye jokey way to get a serious message across. Its protesting without the protest, its press statements without you all shouting "oh fuck not again, when will they shut up?"

 

I dont see how it damages our reputation as a serious group. We are working tirelessly (sic? not sure if that means on rims!) to get the SBR day up and running, while trying to mount a serious promotion campaign to get people to see what we are doing. How can we do any of that without the likes of this? If it was a hate filled, expletive stuffed Chubby Brown-esqe ditty about how fat Ashley is then I could see the point but its not, its a take on an old English rhyme that has been carefully written to avoid offence.

For a group that is attempting to establish a dialogue with Ashley, it is going a very strange way about it.

You seem however to have got your tense wrong mate, we have attempted dialogue, 3 times and been totally ignored every time. In the meantime everything we do has stalling tactics put in place by the club. We set up the NUSC so what did the club do? 2 weeks later it announces its "become an officially recognised supporters group" initiative.

 

Stuff like that is going on all the time, Im not even convinced that our attempts to enter dialogue with the club over Sir Bob will amount to anything.

 

Are you now saying that we should pussy foot around Ashley and co? call them Mr Ashley, Mr Wise etc in all communications and times we talk about them? make sure we dont do anything to upset them on the hope they will talk to us?

 

Im fairly certain if we did that then we'd have a repeat of what we had a week ago where we were being slagged off for saying that it was possible for Ashley to turn this round.

 

 

I cant see how its a strange way to go about it, all I suss from that is you would rather we kiss his arse until he does talk to us. He knows how we feel about him, he would be even more wary I would imagine if we suddenly made out we were all pally with him on the hope he'll talk. I repeat again my question of what exactly is wrong with the rhyme? If it was "there once was a fat twat called Ashley, who took it up the arse quite rashly..." then I'd see your point.

 

If thats your view then you want to hope he doesnt read the "Time Left" article, I think we actually dare to ask him some questions in that!

I don't see the big deal tbh, it's just a bit of festive daftness. It's not like he doesn't know he's a fucking fat shit, or that there's a very real prospect of relegation.

A fine turn of phrase. ;)

apologies missed this earlier. There shouldn't be anything dodgy on there and I'm not getting any warning?

I agree, but how do you get their attention. You've tried various approaches, and each time come to a dead end, where do you go from here?

 

BTW I was not one of those who agreed to forgive the rat, I just could not put my name behind that approach, even as a member of NUSC. So what if what you write now touches a nerve with the guy, so what if he ignores us, what has changed? I hope it does have an effect on the rat let's have some fun on the way, I think it's just right.

 

Just keep it up, relentless approaches and knocking on his door any which way you can. IMO the rat does not understand enough to fear relegation.

 

I continue to boycot everything Ashley, except for my season ticket which is paid for. I will boycott this further when February comes round as I will cancel my DDR, which was set up for a further 2 seasons. There is no way this guy will get any advanced cash out of me.

While I've been critical of NUSC making daft comments in the past, this is only a bit of fun. It's a supporters' club not a parliamentary lobby group ffs.

Funny as fuck IMO... ;)

 

I think the people at NUFC who bother to read it will see it exactly for what it is.... a bit of festive humour.

I've sometimes been a bit perplexed by the approach of the NUSC, but this is harmless imo. Bit of fun, and thats how the club should see it. Then again, I don't know the club these days.
