Plans have been announced for ‘Boycott Spurs’, many fans saying enough is enough and encouraging the fanbase to leave their seats empty for the visit of Tottenham and the Sky TV cameras.

The calls for a match boycott appeared first on social media at Twitter account @NUFC_Stats and coincided with the launch of website ashleyout.com, a follow on to the sackpardew one that came into being towards the start of this season.

The people behind ‘ashleyout’ have put a bit more flesh on the idea of ‘Boycott Spurs’ and explained what plans have been made for the day of action. This is the info that has appeared on the ashleyout.com website:

‘AshleyOut.com notes with interest the call, originating from @NUFC_Stats and endorsed by many, for a boycott of the Tottenham Hotspur game due to be televised by Sky Sports from St. James’ Park on Sunday 19th April at 4pm.

AshleyOut.com will actively participate in this boycott and promote any such action, endeavouring to provide materials, manpower and publicity.

This is a perfect example of the sort of direct action AshleyOut.com always planned to encourage and support. We will work alongside all supporters and supporter representatives to ensure the protest is successful.

We would like to invite you to join us for a visual and audible protest in Leazes Park starting 30 minutes before kick-off (3:30pm) and continuing until full-time, followed by a post game protest under the Milburn Stand, for which protest materials will be provided.

While encouraging as many as possible to participate, our primary motivation will always be to unite fans in action against Ashley both inside and outside the stadium.

Each of us has our own personal motivation for deciding to join the boycott of this particular game as a form of protest or not and we respect that.

If you feel you cannot miss the game for whatever reason, but sympathise with our protest, we would encourage you to join us for the pre-match protest at the Leazes end, where we can provide you with protest materials to express your discontent with Mike Ashley inside the stadium, and to join us for the post game protest under the Milburn Stand.

Whether people choose to boycott or attend the match, apathy is no longer a viable option.’

    Be wary of pre planning too much. Under the Milburn stand could get cordoned off for post match maintenance knowing the Fatman’s inability to take people on, face to face.

  • LeazesEnder

    AndyMac1 No it couldn’t because it would obstruct access and evacuation.

  • grahame49

    Il be at match block u row l gallowgate, I was a toon fan before Ashley came and I will be when he is gone. My protest will be vocal regards Ashley I love my club I have since 74 and will always be black and white. I wish all well in whatever way they protest

  • Bornunderabigbluestar

    grahame49 Likewise ince 74  but I suggest a compromise of staying on the concourse for first 10 minutes ??

  • LeazesEnder

    grahame49 If you must go in then stay in the concourse for a few minutes before taking your seat ….please!

    Do it for leazes…… and persuade other to by engaging them in frivolous rhetorical boring conversation about Sammy Ameiobi’s proposed move to Arsenal.

  • PhilYare

    this has to happen

  • Andgeo

    ashley out !!! Fat get !

  • Andgeo

    Surround the ground after the game and don’t let any vehicles leave

  • JHar

    Is there no way leaves park could be used (or area around monument) to show the spurs game on a big screen so people could still see the match together??

  • mrkgw

    Solidarity is the absolute key – heres hoping that we supporters stick together and force the unwanted from our club, once and for all. Otherwise, this situation will linger.

  • DownUnderMag

    There needs to be a statement by the fans, but ALL fans need to get behind the idea and see it through.  The way the club is being run, for the vast majority of us, is a shambles…not because we aren’t being bankrolled to a title or cup win, not because we aren’t going out to buy a £50m player, but because we are suffering on the pitch all for the sake of profit, which all goes to the owner.  If we were making a profit AND still putting effort in to winning football matches then great, but when things are as bad as they are then i’m afraid enough is enough and I hope this goes ahead as planned…it will be a huge statement of intent that hopefully the national press will pick up on and back as well, I just hope that those participating conduct themselves in a sensible manner if they choose to gather elsewhere, rathe rthan undo any good work by creating headlines for the papers in negative ways.

  • newcastle7

    You people are a disgrace to our club.Where are the protests from Sunderland,QPR,Leicester ,West Brom and Burnley fans for example.The last game you protested the fans turned up regardless.You are the guys who wanted Pardew out a top class manager very rare in England who has done wonders for Palace.Hope you all stay away on  Monday you disgust me.

  • newcastle7

    Please go to the game against Spurs and support the team bring your mates as well.
    We need the points it’s an important game .Let the ducks have a good time in Leazes Park.Support your team it’s your duty .

  • Toon Magpie

    We must boycott ALL games.

  • No Brainer

    Great idea shorter queues at half tine good luck lads if you can carrythis on and stay away for good I’ll encourage you to do that. Ta-ra

  • No Brainer

    I look forward to seeing you protest after the game as I leave

  • No Brainer

    Solidarity does that not mean supporting the team? A team that is currently missing a whole back four and the premier leagyes mist prolific striker through no fault of the manager or owner?

  • No Brainer

    But loads of people arrive late each game

  • No Brainer

    Yes it could because a static protest would ve obstructive of access and evacuation. Inagine the clubs liability if a crush occurred during a preplanned protest on its property?
    Shows the mentality and thought process of tge campaigners.

  • No Brainer

    And lets tell everyone tgat before gand so they don’t take their vehicles

  • nufcslf

    With the sheep that show up these days, not a chance of anything changing and guaranteed full house. Cashley can do what he wants and I hope it all ends in relegation. 5 losses on the bounce to a mackem side that fights relegation every season says it all for how bad this has really got. Stuff Sports Directed United and everybody associated with it. Boycott, “My Arse”

  • nufcslf

    No Brainer One day you might actually wake up. Enjoy and dream on for now like…

  • Andgeo

    Gutless and spineless supporters! I heard one the other day counter argue that fatty had done some good keeping his season ticket price down. To watch what?? It’s been appalling for the past 2 seasons now. What a flipping muppet! 52,000 of them.

  • Andgeo

    Have you licked Fatty’s hole clean today yet??

  • Andgeo

    Are you saying you are happy with the regime?? Are you comparing us to burnley, QPR and Leicester?? Loony if you are happy with this go and support Sunderland.

  • Chemical Dave

    Haha, fraudfan having a hissy fit !

  • AP69

    Plenty of the plants been on the forum having a go at the planned protests
    It’s working
    Get Out Of Our Club

  • Roddy1012

    Look, I know how difficult it must be for a lot of people to stay away/boycott but bear me out here.  Both my wife and I have been season ticket holders for 25 years and we are both undecided.  However, for all the fans that do go to the match, then I implore you to stay silent as the players enter the pitch.  Can you imagine the reaction that would get nationwide?  Do not applaud these overpaid underachievers onto the pitch as they don’t deserve any acclaim!

  • LeazesEnder

    No Brainer No it couldn’t…. you daft twerp

    You are saying put an obstruction in place to stop an obstruction!

  • fishandchips

    The last bit was only a joke lads

  • NottsToon

    Th club is run on a simple and blatantly transparent model, collect the money, drive down costs, sell assets, repeat. This will continue until so much value has been stripped from the club that it can easily be sold at a price to simple recoup the mythical loan/ debt that has been created, the owner has already taken back his purchase price and more from NUFC believe me. None of that has anything to do with building a team or winning football matches, never mind trophies. It is long past time to act.

    For so long now we have heard apologists say that nothing is organised and we fans are irrelevant, well now something is organised and we have a focal point for our anger which will attract mass publicity. If you have any love for this club then you must make the right decision to join this protest. I have not had a season ticket for 5 years and now live a fair distance away from Newcastle (ironically only a few miles from the Sports Direct headquarters), but I will be there on the 19th to give my support to something which has to succeed.

    The people on this and other forums speaking against it are either paid plants, Mackems on a wind up, or so deluded that they will never change. Their views and opinions on the football club are irrelevant and they are complicit in what is happening, we cannot let them be heard and we cannot let them drag our club down.

  • No Brainer

    Thank god for that I thought we had loads of injuries and or suspensions. Thank god it was just a dream when do we play the mavkems then we’ll wallop them with colo xisse taylor dummett and tiote in the side you’ll be telling me the injured dutch captain is fit next. Or was all that fatty’s failt
    tohelp you understand what your doing is a bit like me telling you your a twa* for not giving me a lift when someone has stole your car.
    Get a grip man

  • PhilYare

    looks like we are all in favour except the wonga brigade. You’ll be able to spot them with a bag full of tat from s**tdirect.

  • PhilYare

    Beno999 agreed but I fear a lot of them would get too comfortable and not walk out as planned and the cameras would hardly pick it up

    however if nobody was there to start with…
