Would be very interesting to see which clubs voted in favour and which against.

I'm all for supporting the club and I'm right behind the season ticket drive.
But as a season ticket holder for many a year it can't be a one way process. We, as supporters, via the trust should have been consulted.
If it's about money I may reconsider my own commitment, if it's only money that talks. This more than sucks and is very demotivating.

Yup. We're all sat here talking about a boycott  
It's close season, we've pretty much switched off emotionally.
Let's see what happens when it's mid season, we're riding high in the league and JF and Co ask us to go and support our club etc.  I will not go, but would be interested to see how many still do !!


I slept with a girl last night who told me I didn't have a very big organ.

I said ' to be fair though love, it is playing in a fking Cathedral'

It's wrong . We all know this is just the beginning aswell probably their idea of 'testing the waters' to see what fans off clubs will do ( if the PL, FL  or club higher powers even care ) . As people have said don't go guys , don't go ( not that many people care too much of the early rounds anyway ) but it's a wider picture than that it's about them taking over OUR teams leagues and monopolising them for their gain . I don't want the football league restructured its fine as it is with REAL clubs it has with passionate fans , not some B team who we will play on one of their little mini stadiums next to the first teams ones with about 50 men and his dog .

That's why we need to build momentum now and continue it through the summer. Petitions are all well and good as a starting point, but ultimately they achieve intercourse all.

From what I can see, opposition to this is widespread, and certainly stronger than opposition to the idea of B Teams in the league, or the restructuring. I'd imagine this is partly down to the way the FL have tried to sneak this through without any consultation, and then attempted to bury the statement by releasing it just hours before the start of the Euros. It absolutely reeks of the snide, contemptuous attitude the FL (and, let's not forget, many club representatives) have.

This needs to be a collective, coordinated, inclusive protest across the whole football league and even Premier League fans, where possible. I'd start with leafleting at friendlies, spread the word to people who don't have these conversations, or aren't engaged online, or don't care at the moment.

Banners, chants, leaflets - they all have their place but nothing will work like a boycott. Nobody will want to be associated with a product that actively turns fans away from grounds. I think the FL have copulated themselves here in choosing a competition that very few people will really care about boycotting.

I hope that support, in any form, will be forthcoming from the Trust and local press outlets around an issue that is clearly a threat to the very soul of football in this country.

Quoted from Theimperialcoroner
It's a right load of male masturbation.

These fornicators are ruining the game for greed. I'm no Luddite (although I was born in Louth), but you make change for the better, not to support the vanity projects of billionaires. There would be a very simple way to sort the English talent question and that would be to ensure the majority of people on the pitch at any one time are from the home nation. You have as many non-English players in your squad as you wish, thus avoiding restriction of trade questions.


See what you did there

Ska is right.

Clearly the timing is snide.It just shows the calibre of people we're dealing with. Too guilty to deal with this at a decent time and consult their 'stakeholders'. Sneaky little feckers.

Trust members write to the Trust. Everyone write to the Club to find out what the Club's position is on this.

Luton voted against. How about us? As a club which had one of it's best ever moments in this competition I really hope JF didn't make another ridiculous decision

I've got bored of going to Wembley, anyway.

Boycott it is.

I sort of hope Cleethorpes Town are at home one of the nights we play so they get the benefit of 1000 theough the gate watching first team football rather than the PL kids.
