6 days is plenty of time to get something sorted. But it really does need the backing of the Trust and Supporters Club to get some good numbers.

That's why I don't think six days is long enough to organise nse things without the trust

I genuinely donít think we have that sort of passionate support from our fans. When we won L2 last season and I went to the ground Iíd say there was less than 30 celebrating compared to the many hundreds that other promoted clubs got. There was supposed to be a protest against Pompey last Tuesday, again only a handful showed up, nothing on the scale weíve seen by the fans of the big 6 this week. Whilst I agree itís hard to get into the county ground car park at present with all the security it would probably be easier to have a mass gathering at a meeting point not to far from the ground, say Tescoís car park and when we have sufficient numbers we March to the county ground. If itís done peacefully without trouble itís likely the security staff wonít fancy trying to stop hundreds of fans making a protest outside the stadium.

We have a lot of loyal fans, but organised passion is a bit thin. Guess we're too long in the tooth with being dealt shit over decades. A dogshit sandwich as flash would say  Smiley

TBF that may have been because it was during the first lockdown. Not sure you can equate "compliance with a public health lockdown during a global pandemic" with "got no pashun for the club"

The trust have just retweeted some anti power banners hung up today, so perhaps they could get behind this?

For a lot of fans, this feels all too familiar. Being treated with contempt by owners in this default setting. If youíre used to it, youíre less likely to react with rage. Thatís why Fitton, Nick Watkins and Co stood out. They were professional and respectful to the fans. I think theyíre the only ones to have ever done that.

So itís not nothing to do with passion then just Town fans are more likely to follow government guidelines than say Liverpool, Leeds and Coventry fans? I just feel like most of our fans are abit meh about it all. Thereís a video on Facebook of the last time we had a protest after we got relegated to L2 after a home defeat to Rotherham. Again, a rather small gathering that didnít last that long. Nothing like the protest March for the Town back in the early 90ís after our demotion that started in Faringdon Road Park.

I also think we're now in an era where the avarage football fan isn't as passionate or interested anymore

To clubs we have been converted to customers for some fans.
Think we all know the types, the ones last season who swore theyíve always been a Liverpool fan, yet funnily enough also own old Man City and Chelsea tops.

iv never attended a protest before but last week after the Tuesday match I was furious with every single thing about the club. having no fans I'm attendance has left everyone feeling deflated and helpless. the players, managers and owners have had the easiest times of their relegation lives this season without fans.
