Boycott or Protest?

Report Message | Email Message To A Friend | Reply To Message
 
Blower is a disgrace and clearly has no time for us fans. Whatís the best way to show how unhappy we are with the running of the club?

Boycott for me. I wonít be paying to watch that shower of XXXXXXe and Iíve been a Macc fan for 25 years.

Blower and Yates OUT

As a season ticket holder, Iíve already paid. However, Iím rapidly losing interest. Another poor result onSaturday and attending games will move down the list of priorities on match days, unless MY is given the boot.

I only say Boycott because I know the Chairman and Owner donít care about the fans that were here before them and will be here after they eventually depart.

A protest wouldnít do much I donít think. Itís outrageous that issues havenít been even addressed by Blower. The only time we hear from the clown is when heís asking us fans for money towards a playing budget.

Whereís all the promotion money gone? The tv money from last season and the transfer fees? Itís a disgrace. The owner makes out like he cares about the club which is a load of Yates.

Anyone remember when the owner made out him and his family were Macc fans and loved the club? Hahah itís almost laughable. Itís a business for them and they are messing with years of history.

Boycotting will achieve nothing. I suggest attending but make your views known with plaquards and messages in a firm but non violent manner. The players need the support.

Boycotting games massively hurts the club, reduces the already small budget and has a detrimental impact on the players.

I donít think you can consider yourself a supporter or really have the best interests of the club at heart if you start boycotting games.

If someone could please provide any evidence that the owners are taking cash out of the club, I would be fascinated to see it.

Finally, the idea that AA would want to see his asset massively reduced in value by us being relegated is nonsensical and again I would like to see some evidence to suggest that.

I have watched Macc for 30 years and believe me itís been A LOT worse than this at times!

As usual total silence from the owner and chairman over the terrible start to the season, and in particular last night's embarrassment, so I'm voting with my feet and boycotting until Yates is removed. I'm heartbroken by what's happening at our club, and see it as the only alternative.

A prolonged slow-hand clap? But not when the players are on. I do believe most of them are probably doing their best in a negative system.
I don't really feel they are to blame for this situation.

I have decided to vote with my feet now, I would love to support the team and will continue to do so away from home. These guys at the top obviously arenít effected by message board or social media comments so I will join others by at least trying to hurt them in their pockets.

I just don't get this boycott idea. The next two home games against Forest Green and Notts County could define the rest of the season. It is vital we start getting some points now and not supporting the players does not help the situation.

Can fully understand the sentiments of many life-long fans posting on here.

I am bitterly disappointed, after the epic achievements of last season, to see our great club brought to its knees in this fashion.

This isn't a 'blip', or temporary bad form.

Even disregarding the West Ham debacle, we have 2 league points from 27, and, to date, I see not the faintest glimmer that we are likely to improve under the present regime.

We thoroughly deserve to be bottom of the league, and I can only wonder how much worse it has to get before some action is taken. [V]

Protest will be the best imo.

It will get media coverage and at the moment, that is what we need.

Especially after being all round the media after the West Ham embarrassment, we will still have some of that spotlight on us.

YATES OUT, AMAR OUT, BLOWER OUT banners/plackards NEED to be made and held by as many fans as possible. We need this poisonous trio out of our club, starting with Yates.

Yes I did at the time.

But I wasn't expecting this kind of football. I wasn't expecting the man to not come over and clap the fans after it took me 11.5 hours in a car return trip to watch that pile of XXXXXXe. I wasn't expecting him to only win 1 game in 18 matches including pre season with that coming against Ashton in his first game.

i wont be attending any further home games until something changes, enough is enough, its an insult to pay to watch that in these circumstances, as ive said before in a previous post this isn't just a bad run and a win saturday doesnt cover up the cracks, its rotten to the core and needs to be addressed.

Those that have season tickets or are still committed to the cause then i suggest some kind of protest/banner/cards made to make your voices heard as this shower of **** cant continue like it is.

Amar/Mr Blower please have the decency to look at whats going on, cant bury your heads in the sand for much longer, MY is a desperate man who unfortunately has run out of ideas, i didn't want him to fail, i didn't want to see us in this mess but the fact is we are and if something doesn't change ASAP then we all may as well give up, Even if a sudden change in fortune occurs it doesn't alter the fact the club needs to look at its purpose and be fair on us fans on what you want to achieve going forward because lots have lost faith and many more are. desperate measures desperate times, were macc and well fight adversity but come on guys do the decent thing.

Appalling behaviour by the skulking dugout rabble, Ron, when MY has been such an unqualified success!

Of course all true fans will support Danny W and the other players, who are desperately trying to salvage something from the present disaster, but, put your hands on your hearts, who genuinely sees things improving under the current ownership and managerial structure?

Will the club and players benefit from a boycott ,- no.
If as some say Amir wants the club to be relegated to get the parachute money then a boycott will play into his hands.
The reason I say this is that a boycott will lead to less revenue which could lead to bills not being paid , which will lead to administration and the consequence of that will be a 10 point deduction which will almost certainly mean relegation even if that will happen if things don't change quickly.
If I could give a message to Messrs Alkhadi and Blower it would be, it takes a big man to admit making a mistake ,now is the chance to show you are big men and relieve Mr Yates of his duties because he is obviously not capable of doing the job.

A boycott won't help to achieve anything, a protest, done effectively, might.
MY looked a good solid appointment, experienced with a decent track record, brought in alongside a former playing legend.
Fola is not alone in a total change of heart, nothing has gone right for the luckless Brummie, most of which he's only got himself to blame. Changing a winning team and its style of play, refusing to play proven winners, bad recruitment and awful tactics/formations.
Of course a change of gaffer may not be enough, its not just the manager that's wrong at MTFC, but without a change this ugly brand of football will see the club drop straight back down, making another unwanted record in the process.

It's a tough one. A boycott is going to do short term damage, and maybe even severe damage but might be the only way to improve long term.

I don't buy into this whole wanting to get relegated theory, but I'm not sure the ownership care either way.

Yates is more a symptom than a cause of our problems. It's clear he should be doing better but assuming he is removed whoever replaces him will be appointed by the same people, and have to work in the same conditions imposed by off the pitch failings. Unless you get another Askey getting 100% out of the budget and covering the cracks we will struggle.

I believe (and I'm not guaranteeing I'm right) that a change in ownership and governance is the only way things get better. Boycott is the most effective way to put pressure on, but it's also painful for fans/volunteers to stop supporting their team and potentially watch us take a few steps/leaps backwards if it's going to support the club going forwards.

The basic award payment from the Football League was £472,000 last season. This is paid as a parachute payment to clubs relegated to the National League for one season and then 50% of that for the second season.

Thing is , if this form continues, you wonít need to organise a boycott. Attendances will plumet anyway and that will most likely necessitate the owner stumping up some cash to keep the club functioning.Whoís going to keep coming to see a team incapable of winning ?

The bottom line is that 'the team' is all we have got. These are blokes like the rest of us who happen to have been playing football all their lives and are better at it than any of us on the terraces (though some fantasists will disagree with that).
If fans start barracking and abusing them they will react like any human being and just switch off, or worse. These guys do not, and never will, play in the Premiership, and will make mistakes (even as Premiership players do, for all the £millions they earn).
They ONLY way they will improve is through our support, as clearly they aren't getting much of the right support from their immediate bosses and managers.
A 'boycott' will occur naturally anyway, like with any business that does not provide what the paying public wants, though 'loyal club fans' are not quite the same as loyal customers who shopped at Woolworth's once.
I think this idea of a 'protest' is a very difficult and complex issue. Affect and 'lose' the players in this, and we have gone for good!

i can see the attendance being as low as 1250 tomorrow given our run of form and that many spent valuable time and money on our midweek humiliation.

It is vital that those of us there are there get right behind the team until the final whistle.

Fingers crossed for a reversal of fortune. I think Iíll scream if I hear MY saying ďthe result isnít what I wantedíĒ one more time!

I don't believe it's 'fortune' that has rapidly propelled us to the position of worst FL team in England.

Where is the evidence that we have strengthened the excellent title-winning squad of last season, in readiness for what was certain to be a much tougher campaign in the FL this time? I see none!

You can cite indifferent backing from our owner, clueless managership, and sub-standard signings, but the simple fact is, we were completely unprepared for the challenge of L2, and the painful reality that we are totally uncompetitive at this level becomes more apparent with every game.

It can pay someone to take the money and run rather than maintain a L2 standard and wage structure which takes the cash away far easier to sit back and take two and a half years money. QED.
