As part of the latest update from the No Geordie Cash for Ashley campaign, The Mag and True Faith have issued the following statement about the Hull game this Saturday:

Protests – Neither The Mag nor true faith have a mandate to claim to be the representatives of supporters. All we have done is to make some recommendations to supporters which we hope will articulate the anger at those running the club.

Those recommendations we hope are the consensus drawn from those who have contacted us and which we feel will keep the support united and avoid a division which would only benefit Ashley, Wise and Llambias.

That is why we have not advocated a boycott of the Hull game.

Our recommendations are of course for supporters to demonstrate their anger at the match on Saturday.

tf and The Mag have also recommended that supporters completely and totally withdraw their financial support from NUFC in the shape of purchases of anything at all at SJP on match-day (e.g. programmes, food, drinks, raffle tickets and do not use the betting facilities at the club from which NUFC derives an income) but also merchandise of any description particularly from the club shops in the way of official merchandise.

We would also recommend that supporters who are fully behind these recommendations encourage others supporters to also withdraw their financial support as well on match-days in particular.

Not everyone may be aware of the recommendations made here and in other publications, so it would be helpful if those so minded were to remind fellow supporters of this action who you may feel be about to purchase items from NUFC.

Our recommendation is to do so in a polite and non-aggressive manner at all times.

REMINDERS

As advised previously the Toon Ultras have organised a protest outside the main entrance of The Milburn Stand at 2pm on Saturday.

Talk of The Tyne has organised a march which will take place at 3pm from Tilleys Bar on Westgate Road to The Gallowgate End.

Keep On, Keepin’ On …
