    So, less than normally turn up on the hill?

    Good to see the slight softening of the message, but still not entirely sure what they are asking for.

    Quite clearly this protest has failed misetrably and those fans should now unitwe behind the majority who know where the problem lies and who have the clubs best interests at heart!!

    By your rationale the protest is as strong as any of the anti SISU ones in London or the last protest on the hill at Northampton.

    Read Knowl's recent article on GMK to put yourself in the picture.

    Presumably the 800 name petition is from all those who attend sixfields.

    all the protests have failed miserably. We're still playing in Northampton. The only one that deserves credit is the march.

    They are fellow fans entitled to a protest if they think its the right thing to do. Its not a competiton between pro and anti sisu views. That said, when i went past there seemed to be more people protesting about the arms tarade

    There is a substantial difference between protesting on your own doorstep and travelling long distances to do so.

    Nice of Les to get the TV along as well.

    Im not there cus I heard no details, time, date, anything like that. If we're gonna get anywhere, we need to be more organised. Plus its a stupid time to do it. Loads of people are at work and couldn't go if they wanted to

    I don't go to Sixfields. By your rule of thumb then I presume all those who didn't sign it want the club to stay there too?

    So can anyone tell me what they're asking for?

    "Do more to get the club back" is about as specific as "Down with this sort of thing".

    Maybe if they had pictures of Lucas and Reeve as Muppets it would help?

    Why can no-one answer this question?

    I honestly want to know. What are they asking the council to do?

    FWIW the same criticism can be levelled at many of the KCIC protests, but at least "talk to us" is a tangible thing.

    I haven't got a rule of thumb.

    It was an ironic remark without an emoticon, so it will be difficult to get for some people.

    Will be interesting to see which is given the most prominent coverage by local press - this protest or Bob Ainsworth's EDM/debate in parliament?

    Presumably to get one side to talk to the other and vice-versa. That's good, isn't it? What was KCiC aims? Did they ask for SISU to talk to ACL/CCC?

    I can't wait to read all about it! If Ainsworth then I presume a little quiet...if the protest then I imagine everyone will go Les Reid Pro-SISU Crazy again.

    I'm sure both stories will get coverage.

    Cheers. I can see why that isn't on their placards (assuming there's placards, it's not a proper protest otherwise)

    Not at all. I don't and won't attend Sixfields. That doesn't mean that ACL have done nothing wrong.

    I think it is aimed at getting people talking. I agree that it is at a bit of a dodgy time when not many can go if they are at work.

    If it's aimed at getting people talking, why start with the one side that is willing to talk?

    This presumably as it's absolutely local - i.e. calling on the local council to do something, whereas Ainsworth is calling on an Administrator from London to look at something, or something.

    Points 1 and 3 are valid questions to ask the council. I thought there was going to be a council meeting to look into this sometime next month?

    Point 2 is a question that needs to be answered by Sisu. The council cannot force sisu to move back, nor does it have any direct responsibility over any other private business in the city.
