Fans United – Protest Day at Blackpool May 2nd

You know that day when the fixtures come out and the first thing we all do is look for our best away trip? And who the last game be will against? And sometimes it’s one of those when it all comes together and we’re going away on the last day to the seaside on a Bank Holiday jolly-boys. Most of you might have looked for a Blackpool weekender in your fixtures – there isn’t a league recently we haven’t been in!

Well this season, we’re inviting you all to have one with us – including Preston! We reckon it might be your last chance – no doubt we’re going down this year – but that’s not half the story. We’re in serious danger of dropping out of the leagues altogether. What’s been done to us in the last few seasons could happen to any club in the country – there’s nothing in the way the modern game is run to stop it. We’re organising a massive fans united protest to stand shoulder to shoulder with other fans on May 2nd at Blackpool. We’re inviting any of you that fancy a Blackpool trip on the last Saturday of the FL to come and show unity with other like-minded fans and show those that run the game that we can’t be ignored.

You obviously have everything to play for this season - championship, automatic or play-offs – by the last game your fate might be sealed to some extent - so if it is please come to Blackpool and get some cheap beer, a cheap B&B maybe and meet others who care about what used to be our game and our way of life.

In the words of another former club chairman, the owners of Blackpool ‘trousered the lot’ of the Premiership windfall. What you probably don’t know is that they are taking fans through court for alleged libel, extracting money and apologies from us to stay out of court, goading us on message boards, and abusing fans with disabilities in personal texts (see FA text-gate investigation). We have to watch our step and what we say. But they can’t stop us boycotting and protesting. It’s our club, we want it back. It could be your club, and you wouldn’t stand for it either!

We want the last day to be our party. We know many of you from games in recent seasons or we’ve stood with you on England duty in years gone by. We know we’re stronger together than divided. We won’t stop fighting them – we even have our own independent candidate standing in the General Election on May7th – you can show your support for him by liking the <> and follow his campaign on twitter at @Vote4Andy2015

Come and join us on May 2nd and show what real fans can do together.

  • Lots of views but no responses as yet - come on boys let's get the discussion going - what do you think about us putting up a candidate in the G.E. ?

  • I think it will be great to watch Wycombe away at blackpool next season

  • I sympathise, it nearly happened to us. However, I'd still far rather see us turn over Wilder and potentially win the league.

  • I have much sympathy. Compared to the Oystons, our home-grown 'evil owner' was a mere pussycat. Last year I was treated to a tirade against them by a Torquay United supporter - that shows how far their infamy has spread. 'Owners' can be difficult to shift once they get a persecution complex and dig their heels in, so it's likely to be a long process, just hope one of them gets arrested again for some other appalling crime.

    When you finally manage it, I am sure you will find some assistance here with regard to 'fan ownership'.

  • Sorry - I support the cause, but I'd much rather be at Northampton, fate sealed or otherwise. I'm sure we have some exiles in your part of the world that will represent us if not making the trip to Northampton. Good luck with the campaign!

  • I know our exiled fan in Blackpool already has his train tickets for Northampton !!

  • Cheers for the responses chaps ...

    UPDATE : We are reliably informed that Blackpool's chairman is threatening the council with legal action if the protest is allowed to go ahead.

    Quite fitting to hear of such democratic practices as we enter election season.

    BTW a good pal of mine splits his time between the Chairboys and the Hammers - good luck today v Oxford ....

  • @Blackpool Really who is that?

  • No chance, Cobblers away for me.
