NUST announce ‘incredible’ amount raised 5 days after launching bid to buy a stake in the club

In a Monday night message to Newcastle United fans, the NUST (Newcastle United Supporters Trust) have revealed the ‘incredible’ total raised so far towards the 1892 pledge scheme.

Five days into the ambitious initiative that’s bidding to see us, the fans, own a small stake in the club under new owners, the NUST have confirmed that £50,000 has now been raised.

They also state that over 4,000 fans have pledged to the 1892 scheme so far, thanking fans for their incredible generosity and support in sharing their message:

£50,000 is just the start – this is a long-term project aiming to give us 1% ownership of the club once Mike Ashley sells up – however this will only rise on a monthly basis given thousands have already committed to direct debits.

As the NUST have explained, fans have been asked to donate whatever they can on a monthly basis – whether it be £1 or a tenner – to build a pot of money that would ensure supporter representation when new owners eventually arrive on Tyneside.

If you haven’t already, please donate HERE and back the 1892 scheme – a brilliant project well worth getting behind as we bid to get our club back when Mike Ashley finally sells up.

  2. I find it hilarious that everyone is shouting about putting money into this fund when it hardly seems that long ago they were all complaining about having no money and needing the club to refund their season ticket money.

    Economically it’s a terrible time to be doing this.

    I can just see the new owners (????) having their first board meeting.
    “What’s that? The fans want to buy in?
    Are they the same fans who tried to bankrupt Ashley because they didn’t get their way?
    Are they the same fans who insist he put nothing into the club? Didn’t we just pay 110 million as part of the asking price, paying off an interest free loan he put into the club 13 years ago?
    “Are they the same fans who demonstrated outside a restaurant Ashley was eating at?
    “Are they the same fans who have been slagging off Ashley for years?”
    “Are they the same fans who are slagging Bruce off?”
    “So they want a say in how the club is run for a measly 1%”
    “Tell them no thanks!”

    Personally I don’t see this “fund” getting past 150,000.

    Oh no – not the old “African government says I can’t transfer my money ruse!”

    I see you have a number of facebook accounts all over the planet. Just transfer 25k from one of the other accounts!

  4. FORGET about buying the Club…

    …spend the money wisely = pay Bruce his 30 pieces of silver and get rid of the clown!

    WE NEED a MANAGER + not one that’s just taken their club down (!!??)
