We understand there will be demonstrations outside Sports Direct stores in Glasgow and AshleyOut1Edinburgh tomorrow as well as something happening involving Sports Direct in the East Midlands area as well.

If you happen to be in Glasgow, Edinburgh or Leicester tomorrow and want to join the demonstrations then go along to where-ever your nearest shop is etc and you might click for some demonstrations at how Ashley is destroying Newcastle United in England and has Rangers over a barrel in Scotland.

What is it with this bloke?


We would like to bring your attention to the Football Supporters Federation and FSFlogo1 copy
Supporters Direct’s joint questioning of the major political parties about their plans for football given the rather important General Election up and coming next week.

To see more of the piece, just click here 


Given the colossal amounts of money coming into the country’s national sport as well as vote-footballthe associated cultural importance of football to the lives of millions of people it has never been more important for our politicians to know their responsibilities to intervene in a game which is simply being run for the convenience of people like Mike Ashley.

We would encourage all of our readers to click on the attached.

It will take you a matter of seconds for a standard letter to be sent in your name to all of the candidates in your constituency for the forthcoming General Election.

All candidates need to know their responsibilities to us as supporters of the national game.

When you have taken part, please send the link to all of your mates and it doesn’t matter what club they support as the issues are the same.

    Whil i agree that pressure on politicians is worthwhile and will send the letter. We’ve been here before time and again.

    As far back as 97 i remember promises around safe standing and fan ownership. What we need to change is not our vote (they’ll be all things to all people) but our organisational capacity and power.

    I feel a little bit of a football fan spring coming on, what with the actions against owners and sky by Newcastle, Rangers, Blackpool, Cardiff, Palace, Liverpool etc etc. While its in fits and starts at the moment politicians only listen, and corporate interests only change when they are forced to change.

    I think its worthwile emailing politicians but lets redouble our efforts around targeting and disrupting Ashley, the Premier league and SKY. The more disruptive we are the more they are forced to change in order to stop the disruption.

    I’ve just read through the political party’s responses and on the issue of safe standing Labour and Tory are against and seem to imply its national law, Lib Dems in favour, but the SNP said this:

    “Under the current arrangements it is for local councils to ensure that stadia within their areas offer safe accommodation for supporters when granting Safety Certificates in accordance with the Safety of Sports Grounds Act 1975. Approval of any application for standing in a football ground lies with the relevant local council.”

    Is that true? Local councils can approve safe standing?
