    Hopefully adds more, ridiculously late to the party however.

    They've had plenty of time before that, they've had it pointed out to them yesterday, this morning, many times.

    Frankly... it's still pathetic.

    But hey, I'm breaking my own rule here about not being negative until tomorrow evening. Just think how much better it could have been with official sanction.

    They plan to be at Jimmys statue at 3.
    They can be DMed on Twitter for access to their WhatsApp group.
    I often disagree with them but they're really trying to pull this together so fair play and they also keep emphasising the need for no trouble.

    Yes you’ve got to commend their determination to make something of it.

    OK, so that makes potentially 150 minimum then. Starts to mean for any people straggling to not worry, they'd be part of a crowd rather than a pair ;)

    They are mine but in all honesty neither were planned so 'random' does fit the situation.

    I hope this isn’t going to be 100+ say they’ll be there, and then we don’t even hit the 20 mark.

    It will be what it will be.
    Do you want to look in the mirror when the club's dead and see someone who gave an hour of his time to try and do something or do you want to see someone who sat at home scratch g his bollocks and griping on social media?

    Grapes protest until 2,40 then a brisk walk to the Ricoh, you can do it!

    Edit: was thinking of the pilot, grapes protest until 2.40. Taxi to the Ricoh!

    You need wasps fans on our side not against us, enough fans hate us and want us to go bust.
    Surely they have more clout with their owner then we will ever have.
    Why protest at the Grapes its boarded up.
    Jist ripe for student accommodation.

    I’ll be there today, albeit potentially with my pregnant partner. She thinks I’ve just randomly suggested an impromptu shopping trip to the Ricoh......

    Still working on being able to make it. Fair play to everybody is, even if it's Tony, nw or bhsb. No sarcastic comments from me or any digs. It's nice to see really in some ways.

    Happy to take pelters if I can't make it!

    We will not get any sympathy from them - they will view the protestors as like some primeval species in a zoo

    If their forum is reflective of their fan base most of them think we should be kicked out the league anyway.

    I do wonder how this would have panned out at The New Den

    I can”t come, I’m in Spain for the weekend.

    I hope there is a good turnout but at least everyone there have done something and possibly the most useful protest of all.

    Can’t help but think an arrogant, typical anti-football Wasp gobshite is gonna walk past us saying the wrong thing. Then everything heads south.

    Good luck everyone, I'd suggest being very colourful and noisy in a whistle and banners type of way but people are correct, we want hearts and minds not more sneering enemies.
