It's the same everywhere including the likes of Twatter and Faceshite, it's just reflective of Ashley's tenure. He's ruined the will to discuss.

I suppose we'll still be here in some shape or form though, probably lurking or hoping something will change.

Yeah it's a bit disappointing. I still think the forums are the best place to share an opinion.

How the fuck do the mackems (plus some mags) keep such high numbers on rtg?

Not sure, although the Mackems have their moments and once they either sign a Man Utd reject or win a couple of games, the boom/bust cycle kicks in, so that will keep the interest high.

As for us, we know the Ashley script here, so it's to our credit that we've kept it fairly interesting to a certain extent.

It's true but I think recently maybe only 5-10 of us are actively posting. Am trying to think of something to boost the numbers, would make things a little more interesting coming into a new season.

Perhaps the Vital lads could chime in. I noticed they get a spot on Newsnow for their articles. Which is basically just covering stories a tad late.. I think if they put their energies into doing a series of satirical pieces based off the current stories the site overall would get a lot more hits.. something similar to the onion or Waterford whispers news.

Why would someone who's only been a registered user since 23/05/15 feel they have some sort of enlightenment as to why the site is quiet ? Maybe it's always been like this but you wouldn't know. Unless you've been on here before under another username by any chance .

However I'm more than happy to embrace anything to make the site prosper, but before that happens, some people need to realise, they can't be a fox and run with the hounds.

It's nowt to do with abuse, although that's not to say that it doesn't happen. That though is reflective of life and what makes us unique.

As has been said umpteen times and with danger of sounding like a stuck record, we're all adults here and will always act accordingly.

If there's ever been a case of pack mentality or unjustified abuse then it gets dealt with. Although most instances do so with history behind it or with fair reason.

That said, the alert function has and always is there for any problem.

Just look around the internet regarding the club, it's the whole propaganda and controlled expectation of the crowd that has killed it. nothing more, nothing less.

I see on rtg you need to register with a non free email.. that would solve the problem of multiple accounts. But then with only a handful of posters, multiple accounts is hardly an issue. Someone's style of writing or grammar is a big tell.

From what I can tell there are probably 5 other imperfect nufc forums which have a slightly higher user base, but on one or two of them I did notice threads like "that new away strip is mint" which kind of makes me happy they don't post here..

We're all pretty much a bunch of grumpy old cynical fuckers on here, which we should embrace.. also a reason why a satirical approach to news stories on the main page would work well.

Mick joined a hippy commune and Old Leazes had a sex change and now runs a burlesque club in Warrington. Good luck to both in their new ventures!

A wise decision on both counts,at least they have escaped the asylum that is NUFC and can now lead normal lives.

Leazes, or "Old Spice" as he's known in Warrington is quite the celebrity these days.

Kind of like a decrepit version of Taylor Swift :)

It's close season and people go on holiday. Mick has had a rough time recently and having the NUFC scenario as a form of escape is no entertainment at present, so he's absent.

I'd dearly love if Chris Mort came back to run things. I think a lot of how poorly things are being run now is down to Penfold.

Have to disagree with that one Odin. Our predicament falls squarely at the trotters of the porcine one, aka Mike Ashley.
We're just another SD outlet, nothing more, nothing less.

The 'we've made a list' comment makes me smile.
Any club worth a toss knows months in advance what areas need strengthening & the names they'd like.
They really are a bunch of clueless tossers.

How many times have we supposedly lost out on players due to not willing to pay a reasonable amount ? Boney and Clyne spring to mind who have / are going for a lot more money than what they were purchased for . Says it all with the Modric story really personnel may have changed but the habits remain the same.

Ashley's NUFC draw up the target lists on an Etch-a-sketch anyway.

By the time George off rainbow (Charnley) has finished twiddling the knobs, the excitement of doing the task has caused him to quiver, thus causing the screen to wipe.

We all know Ashley hates us - however he has now upset the press (again) with his closed group only invited to Wally 's appointment and subsequent interview

Now he also gave that staged interview at the end of the season - my belief is when all his promises don't materialise the press are going to have a fucking field day and are probably going hell for leather digging up any crap they can get on him, associates or business

His playhouse might just be about to be blown down

He's gotten away with not saying a word for so long but he's really backed himself into a corner with his interview.

Even the "sheep" who were rejoicing will call him out as a liar after he breaks his promises.

Not if current trends continue. They reckon just under 15k have gotten season tickets. Compared to 35k.. that's a huge drop off by any measure.

I wouldn't be surprised if the delay was down to drawing up a list with better targets. As they desperately need to sell those tickets.

I dont think they'll be too fussed over season tickets meself. Selling them on a match to match basis will recoup the club more cash, not that they need it mind.
