'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Back to Basics

So the inevitable happened. Tasked with basically avoiding defeat at Villa Park, our team of alleged stars produced the biggest bottle job I can remember of 11 NUFC players, as we gave up without even the slightest hint of a fight.

People are down, angry, bitter but I`ll ask you - would you prefer another repeat performance of the shower of sh*t we watched this season in the Premier League, maybe avoiding relegation by the skin of our teeth again, or would you prefer to see the charlatans who wore the shirts this season shipped out and some players who don`t look like they`re playing in diver`s boots brought in?

Me personally it`s the latter. Relegation is the sort of cathartic experience both the club and our fans need. A time to rebuild, a time for some humility, and a time for a good look at aspects core to the club. We need to look at youth, both on the pitch via the academy and also in terms of getting the lost generation of fans forced out by season tickets back into the stadium for some optimism and noise, rather than the miserable Johnny Come Latelys stuck in there now. More Boro game type atmospheres would be a definite bonus.

The club also needs to focus on developing its relations with NUSC and also look at developing the singing sections within the ground, perhaps via challenging the government through a safe standing campaign. We know for certain there will be a positive uptake in this.

A purge of the wasters on the pitch and the doom mongers in the stand would be a perfect result for the club. Over the next few weeks we`ll be looking at the best way to do this, as well as looking at the ins, outs and opposition for next season.

Most of all this is a chance for more people to get things off their chests. Any muses, missives and thoughts - feel free to email in and we`ll publish your views on all and sundry related to NUFC.

Howay the Lads!

I wasn't sad at all yesterday. Ashley deserves it financially ('cause that all he cares about). Our squad needs a revamp and that wouldnt have happened if we we're still a Prem club. Out with the old brown stuff, in with the black n white passion players !!! I reckon we'll sign this generation's Rob Lee next year !

Exactly. Most people aren't overly distressed bar the few usual bakes that cried for the cameras. It's the perfect chance to rip out the rotten core and replace it with something sustainable.
