CROWDFUNDING - REMOVE WENGER & KROENKE

If nobody renewed their season ticket next year (tough for those who have been to every game for years but need to put club they love first) and Usmanov agrees to automatically give them season tickets back if he takes over then maybe the message will get across to Kroenke that we don't want him here.
Never going to happen - both long term season ticket holders giving up en masse and Kroenke selling out to Usmanov.
Usmanov even voted for Kroenke's son to stay on the board of directors at the AGM. :roll:

Suggestions??

Btw there is a protest planned for next Saturday..... now that we are EIGHT points off 4th. Still probably not enough to agitate people though.
Protest next Saturday but so far it's not been publicised very well, it would have been better to wait a few weeks get maximum exposure including in the media & do it properly at the Everton game.

However, yet again the various supporters groups have been found lacking since the start of the season, apart from a small AST token rebellion at the club AGM. No press statements & no publicity or interviews on radio to my knowledge at this continuing time of crisis. Leadership & ideas should be forthcoming from these groups instead they are silent with their heads in the sand. :cussing:

As for suggestions I would continue the previous projection campaigns at famous landmarks, arrange protests at newspaper & radio offices to expose those journalists who are blatantly pro Wenger / Kroenke & promoting the clubs propaganda. Just getting a few supporters together is enough to create a media story.

I do actually believe in direct action tactics, as long as there is nothing illegal or violence involved. As above such tactics can create much media interest but only need a few people involved.

So far there have been protests & marches going back years, most apart from the BSM & the Wenger out marches have had low turnouts, I think the supporters groups need to be seen to be involved & publicise future protests, if not it would appear that small maximum impact protests are an option.

It's been postphoned....the one they had planned is going to join together with us so everybody who wants him out is on the same page and not pulling in different directions, plus a few extra weeks to get banners and whatnot together....hopefully it will be quite effective.

Leaving it to Everton is risky as it the Chelski result goes our way then we are in a final and people won't want to know.
The same thing happen last year with the FA Cup SF and Final.

(and before people say anything, most gave us no chance last year against City and then Chelski).

The time will never be right with our fanbase. This is going to be organised and is going to happen. The one that was originally organised for this Saturday had nothing to do with us so there is obviously an appetite for it.

Personally I think we will make the final, Conte is clueless against Wenger, he looks like a deer in the headlights. Morata doesn't help of course, a C/F who would look right at home at ours as a back up for Welbeck.

I think it is an exaggeration to say Conte can't deal with Wenger. The league matches were won by each home team last season and all 3 matches this season (league, league cup and charity shield) were drawn. The FA Cup Final was a remarkable one-off.

Relative to other managers of course he will be disappointed.

Neither do I but the more bad press the club get the better at the moment - they deserve everything they are getting.

Chelsea would expect to beat us at home .... all the other top clubs do. They miss a Drogba Or Costa to terrorise our defence. Morata is a lightweight. This semi is going to be Wenger's get out of jail....

Get out of jail or not the protest is going ahead
