The only way to make him go is to hit him in the pocket. Boycott his shops not the club. Good luck this afternoon.

The whole thing seems to have been a bit of a disaster if you ask me (protest plans). They were relying solely on us continuing to lose week in week out to get some support, that didn’t happen (luckily). Then there was the laughable leaflet campaign and rather pointless ‘walk in’ before a boycott that was never going to happen even before they cancelled it.

Credit to the group, they are if nothing else quite convincing at making it sound like they’re a significant group.
They are a significant group. Agree or disagree with some of what they do, they are the only supporters group of note.

There shouldn't be a need for TMG the NUST should be doing what they're doing but as a supporters trust they're very poor.

The main problem with our fan base is the amount of egotistical individuals and a lack of a proper representative supporters trust.

Early on TMG looked like they might be the answer, they consist of member of the NUST, True Faith, Wor Flags and a few others. Those running it kept their heads down for a while and everything was done under the group banner. Then that Wallace bloke or whatever he's called decided to make it all about getting himself TV and radio gigs and started abusing fans in twitter who didn't want to boycott.

For me they lost credibility when the leader of the group started personally attacking Lee Marshall on twitter for deciding to go on holiday with his family during his week off rather than cancelling his plans to entertain the group.

With a change of leadership and more engagement with the wider fan base before making decisions the group can regain some credibility. Hopefully that happens or the NUST get their act together as there are no other significant supporters groups.

Magpie Group Statement:
TMG wrote:Wolves (h) Boycott Postponed

In light of recent developments concerning a potential takeover of the club in the very near future, members of The Magpie Group have taken the opportunity to re-evaluate its proposed boycott of Newcastle United’s home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers this Sunday.

After careful consideration, and following consultation with a number of Newcastle fans across the divide, we have decided to postpone the boycott to a later date; a provisional date has been set for United’s home game against Huddersfield Town in February. This decision has not been taken lightly and was made in response to Mike Ashley’s appearance on Sky News on Monday night and further revelations in the media since. Although we continue to have very deep reservations about Mike Ashley’s resolve to sell Newcastle United Football Club, we understand that any protest activity which could have a negative implication on Sunday’s result could jeopardise the potential sale of the Club.

Alongside this, we will be suspending all protest activity at Newcastle United games until after the closure of the January transfer window. This suspension period is designed to allow Mike Ashley and any potential investors a clear run at reaching a deal, an outcome which, needless to say, provided the stimulus for the inception of The Magpie Group in the first place. Our decision is also intended to preclude Keith Bishop Associates from laying the blame at the door of supporters if a sale does not come to pass. If a takeover has not been completed by the end of this period, then protest activity will resume at the away game against Tottenham Hotspur in early February.

Whilst this is the official position of The Magpie Group, we fully recognise and support the right of individuals and groups to protest on Sunday if they wish to do so. Indeed, individual members of the Group are proceeding with their own plans to boycott the game.

Further to this, protest activity aimed at Mike Ashley and his retail interests will continue, and will not cease until the sale of the club has been agreed. To this end, we will continue to work with members of the London Magpie Group, who have done excellent work in trooping the colours and preserving the integrity of Newcastle United fans in the capital recently.

As the Newcastle fanbase keenly observes developments over the next few days and weeks, we truly hope that this is not another false dawn and that, this time, Mike Ashley genuinely wants to sell. We also hope that any potential sale will be a true “clean break”, and that all ties between the Club and Mike Ashley’s retail outlets will be severed upon its completion. If Newcastle United Football Club is subjected to similar circumstances to Rangers Football Club, then The Magpie Group and the London Magpie Group will be left with no choice but to continue targeting Mike Ashley, his retail interests, and his known associates.

Apparently Sundays' protest has been postponed until February, after the transfer winfow closes, due to Ashleys' statement regarding the sale of the club.
Or because it had gained very little / no traction?

Good news.

We should all chant Ashley's name to show the American investors how much we really appreciate owners.

Yanks love it when you chant.

You mean somebody maybe thought that if there's a chance there are potential buyers, they would rather see people in seats than empty ones? Crazy <erm>

Mentioned nothing about protest on MOTD
The camera zoomed in on a handful of people walking in late to their seats and commentary acknowledged it - though in a pretty dismissive way noting how few appeared to be doing it. Billionaires don't buy 300m sports clubs from other billionaires because people vocally complain about the existing billionaire.

I was looking at when Man Utd tickets go on sale as I'm buying a few extras, and thought I'd have a glance at how the Wolves ticket sales were going. I don't think it's going to be much of a boycott, unless people are buying them to not go.
It doesn't seem to have gained much traction at all. Mainly it seems to be people on Twitter who are pro-boycott having a go at any fan who happens to have a different viewpoint to their own.

Personally I don't care if people want to stay away, that's their choice. But don't hammer others who want to support the team when they're on the pitch.
