    Sticking together...through thin and thinner

    I am increasingly getting a feeling that today's a very important day for us all, so whatever news we get about the situation at the club, I propose that we all put aside our disagreements, political spats, character clashes etc. for the good of the club's future.

    The club is it's fans, in my opinion, as all of the other elements change all the time. We're the only constant, so whatever we hear, unless it's terminal (gulp), let's try to remember we're all on here for the same reason and all on the same side and stick together as a fanbase, even if we resume hostilities at some future, happier point.

    As the new saying goes 'we're all Notts aren't we?'.

    Just out of interest, why do you think today is such a big day? Because of the meeting with Hardy?

    Who knows what the future holds, but I'm minded to repeat what was said at that huge crisis meeting back in 2003. Football club 'owners' come and go, but the only people who really own a football club are its supporters.

    Well said. I have a piece of Notts County forever in my heart. It cannot be bought or sold. It could probably be liquidated. I've got a blender in the cupboard. But that might get a bit messy.

    Yes, not based on anything other than a horrible gut feeling.

    Never a truer sentence spoken.

    Amen.

    Well said you as well. Notts County has played a huge part in my family's history for generations. The latest, my 14year lad says if Notts go under he couldn't support anyone else. I said you would mate, Notts are in my heart he replied. Don't you just hate glory hunters.

    Same here. My Dad, who is in his 70s, has been following Notts all his life, and so did his dad before him. I'd love for my son to be a Notts fan too, but there needs to be a club for that to happen.

    Yes, spot on Swale. If the news does turn out to be bad, I think the supporters' focus should move away from protesting to doing something proactive such as forming a credible group to represent our interests. So things like meeting the council, local MPs, the administrator (if it comes to that} and if course fundraise if needed.

    I hope young slack does grow up a Notts fan.

    Jimmy Sirrel knew that in abundance. Hardy wouldn't have the faintest idea.
