Have ‘Time4Change’ lost their chance to seize the day?

NUFC Blog on metro.co.uk

NUFC Blog on metro.co.uk

My latest piece on metro.co.uk was published earlier today.

Entitled ‘Have two Newcastle United victories cost ‘Time4Change’ their momentum?,’ as you might have guessed from the title, it takes a look at the Newcastle United ‘Time4Change’ movement.

In the piece I ask if they are now in danger of losing their momentum after their first march almost a month ago, which made more of an impact than they might have imagined due to Mike Ashley’s childish and ludicrous overreaction to their little stroll through Newcastle before the game with Liverpool on 19th October.

You can find it by following the link below.

Have two Newcastle United victories cost ‘Time4Change’ their momentum?

Do you / did you support the march against Mike Ashley?

    Newcastle fans are idiots, they are in the top 10, have a pretty good squad, an owner who buys good quality players and a manager that knows what he’s doing yet they want more… greedy unemployed little whingers that have too much time on their hands and not enough brains. Utter Idiots. You are not a big club so be happy with the excellent season so far and stop moaning. You make yourselves look pretty stupid all you time4change twats. Again, IDIOTS!!!

    and look WHO is above you in the table, every team above you is bigger with more history so 9th is a good place to be and if you get that at end of season it’s a massive achievement. Good team, good coach, good setup, good structure, shit uneducated fans.

    Jim, Why don’t you say what you really think! lol

    Good article Worky, They probably have lost a bit momentum, With the two wins, And certain Football fans being fickle.
    It’s like impermanence though, Nothing stays the same, And i’m sure there will be something else around the corner, To warrant another backlash!
    Probably in the form of Pardew lousing it up, Against Norwich City, Or Ashley being Ashley, Something else is bound to come along, And “Stir Up A Hornet’s Nest”…

    Yes i was on the march in fact i am a #time4change committee member and because local press covered the march MA bans local press because we got up his nose. Its uneducated fans that don’t understand how MA is running the club. The NUFC shops and nufc.direct are now run by sports direct so do the club get any profit from merchandise sales ? Its illegal in the USA not to pay for advertising one of MA best assets in SJP advertising sports direct,Firebrand and others. If we are in the top 20 richest clubs how come we would have gone in the red in the summer buying one significant player (Pardee’s words). Why bring in Wonga when Virgin was offering £6m a more per year. And finally £60m tv, £14m Wonga, £18m transfer profit end of January 2013, and £42m from premier league for 2012/13 season where has £134m gone ?

    the owner and directors have no ambition only want to finish 15-17th in the league and not play in Europe or challenge for the title if you have the same ambition go support another team

    Jim, Good to see you have your finger on the pulse, And you seem to know everyone’s employment status.

    Your not a spy for the NSA by any chance?

    So if these Clubs you speak of, The one’s with a bigger history, So for instance, Obviously you would have to Include Liverpool into that equation.
    So was their success not paid for by the D.H.S.S, And all those Dolite uneducated fans, Who went through the turnstiles, Who paid to watch with their Giro money?

    You stupid f**k!, Stop making generalisations and “Stereotypes”, Because people don’t share your view of things.

    avatar time4brains says:

    @1 Jim. You are picking a fight with a minority of people that support time4change. The reality is average gates are 50k plus and despite the march being an open invitation to all toon fans only 300>500 made the effort. The local paper then gets banned for what is perceived by NUFC as repeated accounts of disproportionate journalism and inaccurate publications on the general feeling towards the owner. But guess what the same site that speaks out against the ban then remove any comments for speaking out against time4change or the blogs owners? Hypocrites!

    Come on lads, be nice to him, to be so bitter and angry he obviously has problems. Most of the Spurs fans that I know and have met are really decent blokes and whilst there may be some humorous banter they are not usually as nasty as this guy. Nuff said by us to him now imo.

    I did read the article Worky. I have always maintained that if we had a successful season and actually winning something, a lot of the nays would become yeas. With MA and Pardew actually becoming feted instead of hated. With The Alan Pardew appreciation society holding their end of season meeting in The Albert Hall!!

    I don’t know what the odds are on that actually happening though.

    But, erm, ah, what? They are not using it in an offensive way and have used it for years. Is everybody just up their own ars* now?

    Do I have to now refer to a religion as the “j” word? Can’t even say c@nt anymore. I was watching Ars@nal the other day and Jack Wilshere was being his typical c@nt self and I said to my (now ex) girlfriend – he’s a bit of a c@nt. She was shocked I knew such a word, Matron.

    GS, do you remember a so called ‘comedian’ over here called David Baddiel? He’s a real grade 1 tit.

    Well anyway, he was very angry about his fellow Chelsea supporters saying stuff like “f*ck the Yids” and making the noises of gas taps being turned on etc, so he decided to attack the victims of the abuse and tried to have them arrested. Spurs fans have just ignored it and carried on. I think that one Spurs fan was arrested at a West ham game.

    GS, it was actually a complete and utter w@nker called Peter Herbert, the chairman of the black lawyer’s association who made the first call for Tottenham fans to be arrested for calling themselves Yids, with Baddiel climbing on the bandwagon.

    It was also Herbert who reporrted Mark Clattenburg to the Police for being a racist and is demanding action against Roy Hodgson for his NASA monkey joke to Andros Townsend.

    Hey, worky-odd thing: there are several comments under my username at the “NU with & w/o Williamson” thread that I didn’t post. The last one that was mine was #167 (November 15, 8:55pm). All later posts are not mine. It’s strange, there’s nothing untoward in the posts so I’m not sure it’s anything malicious. Then again, whoever it was seemed to pick up on my line of commentary from earlier in the discussion, which is strange. You may want to keep this in mind/look into it.
