  1. All you Toon fans who have spouted your hostility and aggression towards the ones who are still going to the Arsenal match declaring they are traitors and scabs, and like yourselves shouldn’t spend another penny on the club til Ashley is gone, well done on making any boycott a farce when you went to Preston and Hibs for the friendlies, thus putting money into the Club! Does the phrase ‘Practice what you preach’ mean anything to you? How can you expect fans to follow you all in boycotting when you can’t even do it yourselves before the season even starts! Boycott? You lot couldn’t even organise a pee up in a brewery properly as you couldn’t get that right either. I was going to give the game a miss and maybes even all the televised home games thus wasting money as I’m a season ticket owner, but after seeing you lot at the friendlies there’s no way now. If you can’t stay away and not line Ashley s pockets as you put it, then don’t expect anyone else to, you useless 2 faced dimwits!

  2. Can’t help but feel we are missing out not going for Harry Wilson from Liverpool for £20/25 mil. Think he would be a better buy than Saint-Maxi from Nice for the same money. Saint-Maxi may still be a good buy but Wilson looks to have a left foot like Bale. £25 mil is a good deal for someone so young.

    How do you know these fans are not the “support the team not the regime” fans of SDFC?
