(Newcastle) United we stand – Divided we fall

6 years ago

We are never defeated, unless we give up.

Newcastle! United! Will never be defeated! Kinda goes round in your head…

We ARE Newcastle United. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Without OUR (all of us, not just yours and mine) support, there would be no club.

I am not saying if only you and I decided to protest/boycott the club anything would change…but if we all protest (in our own way) then perhaps that wheel will start to turn…

You need to make up your own mind what you’re doing tonight, on Sunday, whenever, I can’t make your mind up, or make your decision for you. If you wanna boycott the game, fine. If you don’t want to boycott the game for whatever reason, that’s fine too!

Too many times I have heard people say ‘you’re with us, or against us’.

This false dichotomy cannot continue, ironically called black and white thinking, that says you are one or the other… perhaps there is a third option of ‘I don’t like what is happening, but don’t want to protest either, which doesn’t mean I agree with Cashley, but that I love my club’.

I see both sides of this argument, as the guy I go to SJP with looks at the problem exactly this way. He hates what is being done to our club but cannot bring himself not to go; he is as vociferous as the rest of the Strawberry corner about what he does want (get out of our club etc.) but cannot bring himself to not go.

I don’t know what the answer is; I do know that attacking each other isn’t it.

I also know giving up on OUR club isn’t it either; my presumption is that this debate will rumble on for a while.

We are not divided, we are UNITED.

Newcastle United we stand – divided we fall…

Remember those guys that gave up? No, neither does anybody else!
