    we are in the prem where so many of our neighbours would like to be
    we have recently seen team throw millions or hundreds of millions and not achieved what they want or would expect by spending so much
    fulham villa etc tec even manure have spent close to a billion pounds since red nose has left

    ash aint the best
    but we are in the prem and we are competing
    3-4 points from top 6

    what more do people expect

    we tried a so called top manager and didnt progress admittedly he may not have been backed as some would want

    but there are a lot worse than what we have
    when the ash haters and the bed sheet brigade stay away the club seems a much more settled place without fan against fan

    and the growing gates are proof of this
    the club working with the fans

    not fighting

    Growing gates are proof of nothing other than people will do for free what they wouldn't pay for....

    i disagree i feel there are a load of people who whilst not liking ash love the toon and given the right circumstances will go and watch their team

    wouldnt it be great if they offered all these incentives and they werent taken up

    that would prove the haters that they were correct
    however they arent clearly

    You can disagree all you want but the fact remains that before 10,000 tickets were given away the at tendency was at a 10 year low...

    i dont disagree all im saying is when people can afford it they will go
    they dont have to take the tickets if they wanted ash out surely they wouldnt have taken him up on his offer

    if the fan base was so united on wanting ash out they would have sttod in solidarity with those not going

    the truth is the fan base support of the toon were not going for finacial reasons etc lets face it it aint cheap and the gates were getting filled by middle to high end earners and the grass roots fans were getting priced out .now due to the clubs generosity many who couldnt afford to go can

    So what do you think the reason 10,000+ gave their tickets up at the blink of an eye?

    The club is being sterilised and the passion diluted, year by year. If people don't mind that then fine. If people are happy to sit watching a game at St James' with a poor atmosphere, then fine.

    My only wish is that when we finally have an owner who wants to take the club forward in terms of football, that the passion returns.

    When all the Gallowgate Flag Lads decided in unity to pack it in the ground was gutted of the main singing support

    My next door neighbour has 4 season tickets but heís packing in this season he said there is no atmosphere now. He has two freebie ticket holders sitting next to him and they have said that there is no way they will be back next season unless itís a free ticket.

    Nothing whatsoever to do with not having the money FFS you would miss paying the rent years ago to go to the game.
