Can contact MAOC, NUST etc! I think asking the true Geordie to make a video for YouTube would be a good idea. He gets over 60k views on some videos so that's a wide audience.

That's a good place to start, definitely.

The only thing to be aware of is anyone trying to hijack it for their own purposes.

It's a simple idea, attend a non league game, en masse.

It's not about having a pre set agenda, or a set of plans at this stage.

It's about drawing people together, nothing more than that for now.

UKR, if we can get the true Geordie to do a youtube video, get him to disable the comments, as all the apologies for Ashley fans will try and derail it.

My friend Graham is one of the top blokes if that's what to call him from MAOC.

I'd be happy to pass on anything you wish me to. Just keep me posted.

Pass it on to MAOC mate, and get as many of them on board as possible.

I think we are going to have to be a little bit dictatorial over choice of games though, perhaps form a small committee from us lot on here to decide the games, otherwise we might get spread out and not noticed.

In a way the smaller the regular crowd the better, as we are more likely to get noticed. Good place to start is the fixture we've already selected, as there is no NUFC game that day, and it will be a big game anyway. For future games I think we should go for smaller games. Imagine Benfield with 3/400 in, that would make waves. I envisage a situation whereby non league clubs are glad of our presence, and happy to promote our cause. An extra few hundred quid in the coffers is like gold dust for some of these clubs.

Well for a start, there are about 150 boycotters/banning order lads go to all North Shields games now.

They're getting about 250 people per game these days. Not bad for a local club in the meadow well. £5 to get in so not bad at all.

They have 42 youth teams now so additional funds would help them massively. Super Mac was chairman or honorary chairman when I played for them.

I think it's £6 to get in now, certainly is up at Tow Law, and if I'm not mistaken the price for Northern League games is the same across the board.

Nowt stopping you, it's a free country.

Not sure why you'd want to come along to something you are against like, but it takes all kinds I suppose.

Bastard!!! I would live in Vancouver. This is a great idea and would be part of this in a heartbeat if still living at home. Brother lives in Barny and will let him know about this to see if he can represent the pair of us. Will be keeping a close eye on developments. All the best.

Absolutely brilliant effort. I am delighted that you are doing something and wish it all the success it deserves. Please don't excude anyone - the likes of Hugo are exactly the type you need to take along as SJP is full of them at the moment. Hugo I am surprised you are still sniping. You criticised this board for doing 'nothing' (in your eyes ) so now you can shut up as that argument is certainly not available to you any more.

I am looking into seeing if I can join you but I need to swing a few things. Is the date still the one that was previously mentioned near end of March?

Right I was just looking to see if I couldvfind mention of the specific game. where is this advertised? I can see it in the vip section which isn't much use. Is it being pushed on Twitter and Facebook and stuff? I wouldn't know coz I don't use either.

Manx its not advertised on Facebook or Twitter at the minute but I'm sure someone could do a Facebook page or one of those hash tag things. I don't have a Facebook account and very rarely use twitter.

I have emailed NUST to see if they would advertise it but they'll probably pinch the idea and organise their own game, even so it still gets people away from SJP. OM says he is contacting MAOC and I need to see if the true Geordie can do a YouTube video. He has thousands of followers and the viewcount on some of his videos are more then the capacity at SJP.

Plans are in motion just waiting on replies

Tweeted the true Geordie so will post if I get any replies

Great stuff everyone, really pleased with the positive responses.

Nobody is excluded, as there isn't anyone who can exclude anyone, we have no leaders as such, just a guiding committee to set up which game we go to next.

I'll push it on Facebook and Twitter once I work out how I do it, can't be that difficult surely.

Whilst I agree there should be no leaders and part of the reason why im not pushing this from my end, but there must still be a plan.

It's all well and good going to non-league games with people who already boycott but there must be a plan to show those in the 'not sure' bracket about attending NUFC games or those that have already given up that others feel the same isolation as them and that there is an alternative option. The MAOC or someone can give out leaflets or maybe a campaign like the SackPardew one.

Just a thought and not in any way intended to divert away from doing the non-league thing.

There is a plan, of sorts. In the intitial stages we just want to gather folk together. If we could get badges, or a banner with #lovefootballhateashley on them then that would be a good focal point.

Once we get enough people then we can talk about doing an FC Newcastle type of thing, but that would take come backing, and money. There are plenty of people who are up for it, we just need to pull them together and get them talking to one another.

This forum would be a good place for them to meet and discuss matters, but anywhere and everywhere is up for grabs. To begin with I reckon we need to gather numbers, then see what we can do with them. Anyone who has ideas should promote them, and get people to come along to this game. We all want the same thing, rid of Ashley, and a club to support. I'll line up behind anyone who has a plan that I agree with, but as yet there isn't one beyond getting together and showing our discontent.

Let's make it happen.

I've heard nothing back from NUST or the true Geordie as yet but doesn't matter, just have to be word of mouth but a lot of fans seem unhappy so we could make a difference with this.

Gilly you should re read the thread, yes he's been mentioned and would rather he stayed out of it.

I did post the idea, match, date and time on the comments section of the EC. Got quite a few likes before it got taken down haha. Might be an idea to span the EC with it, hopefully we will get a few followers before the comments get removed and we all get banned. Been banned before from there haha

After today's brilliant & expected news on the appointment of carver & hugo's,gillyboat,ne1,etc inane posts hopefully the numbers for the 28th March non league day will swell.If people can't get angry with today's news then they really are a lost cause.
Even if only a handful turn out we can say we tried something.
There's no excuse for fuckin apathy.

If only a handful turn out then we keep going, we talk to people at the grounds about why we are there. We talk to people in the pub after the match and it will spread. Can't just go, find out that only a few went and give up.

Its going to take a while to get people to switch going from SJP to non league games. We just have to keep at it!

I'd be happy with a turnout of ten, seriously I would.

I envisage 100 of us being on the side terrace up at Tow Law's slopey pitch come next Summer and the lovely warm weather.

They play in black and white, it's a nice day out ...

Tiny acorns and all that.

I see great, if not massive, potential in this being a country wide Phenomenon.

There are many clubs who are pissed off for various reasons and a similar reaction at their clubs would get world wide acknowledgment.

Taylor and Besty shouldn't be making films looking for number 5, it should be on this subject of saving football.

Just have to speak to the right people and get it right.

Sounds great OL and I'll be up for Tow Law games.we may have to write of Ryhope Saturday and the next 3 weeks looking at the weather though.
Cracking idea though and it has a lovely bar for after match discussions.
