    I was at the game and didn't know anything about a protest until I read about it on here. I then looked on here and social media for details and found nothing hence asking about it only to be met with non answers.

    Since then all I have found is one post on facebook with vague details of a Fisher Out march before the next home game and a couple of videos of people running around the empty stands and the Ricoh and someone running on the pitch in an empty stadium.

    Me being one. I think the sticking point is, the SISU OUT at all costs people think we’ll forget about them if we target someone else in the short term.

    My view is, pressure wasps now. Get a deal - work on SISU long term. Something has to give

    Your right we need a wasps protest but what.
    Everything tried against Sisu has been rubbish and bashed and the only things we can do against wasps are the same.
    Thing is it is no good if you can't get numbers 5 people at a Wasps game is just no good plus the threat from their supporters would be a bit off putting.
    Need to fill the ground with City fans I'm sure we could get enough free tickets so they make nothing from it all go in the ground demonstrate chanting etc then leave as they kick off.
    Trouble is now it's been on here they will be watching.

    It’s a great point and lost in this recent spat between captain and Nick. One obvious ‘protest’ would be no ST sales until this is clear.

    You can't sell something if you don't know what your selling.

    Exactly but every year we ‘borrow’ this cash from the fans based on the following season, this year it cannot happen!

    Who borrows what? The money goes to the club doesn't it to then fund pre season and go towards the budget for next year.

    How will that force a deal? They won't be on sale until a deal is done one way or another

    It’s like paying for something that we don’t have I.e. we get it next season so hence a ‘borrow’. Early bird hits around April time does it not? And equally if this hasn’t been resolved people won’t be buying, this could force hands

    They won't be able to put them on sale until they know where they are playing.

    Exactly surely that’s got to be a motivation in itself?

    Posted 2.17 pm on
    Posted 8.23pm on Tuesday and this is where you stick your nose in with words like aggressive , a complete fabrication , fiction, a lie .

    As everyone can see Covstu confirmed in post #4 at 11.01am what the protest was about, long before my post #46 .

    Then CJ Covblaze in post #5 at 11.05 confirmed it was the same group who made the protest out side the council house .

    So how can anyone say they didn't know what the protest was about , unless they didn't read the whole thread, then that's not my fault.

    STOP EXAGGERATING AND STOP TWISTING THINGS.

    What are you on about now? I was talking about your posts. Not the others. People were still trying to figure out more about it on Monday evening.

    I notice you didn't post somebody else suggest literacy classes or the other people baffled by your replies?

    If you can't follow a discussion properly then what's the point?

    You haven't even realised covstu was being sarcastic either.

    Nothing is being twisted or exaggerated apart from by you and your bullying nonsense. I don't expect you to understand that.

    Do you not see the irony? Seriously?

    Have you ever heard of the phrase about throwing stones if you live in a greenhouse?

    I think the fact you still really don't understand says enough.

    You said where have you been for the last 11 years in a preovious post, which suggests you were referring to the sisu out protests.
    The posts you've hi-lighted above suggest they're about getting the relevant parties around the table to discuss the current rental disagreement.
    Thanks for taking the time to prove my point, appreciate it.

    And who made the protest outside the council house. I can find no mention of that anywhere online, did it even happen?

    There's a huge difference. SISU couldn't care less about negative publicity, upsetting the fans or the club in general. That's not the same with Wasps. They seem very sensitive to negative publicity, don't want their fans upset and, even if its not their top priority, want Wasps to be at least vaguely successful.

    Start asking them questions and protesting against them and you might see a change. At the moment they, and the council for that matter, think they can do whatever they like to the football club with zero comeback on themselves.

    I think there’s merit in a sit in but it needs to be thousands not tens and it’s we want to play here not Sisu out that is the Mantra.

    Do the stewards get paid per game? They may even be on our side at the few hundred quid they’re gonna miss out on.

    Look at other actions that cause a response. Most recent one is the 79 day service to keep a family from being deported. Peaceful and successful

    I don't, the march in the Summer before the club was moved to Northampton had about 8000 people on it and had no effect on the club. Nothing of that sort will make SISU change tack, a different approach is needed.

    I like the idea and singing a rendition of in our Coventry homes rewritten to suit our current predicament but here’s the thing. So long as the only people willing to mobilise themselves into a protest are the ones who want to sing SISU out that’s the only type of protest it’s going to be.

    I may be wrong, but weren't you the first one to throw the bullying accusation around?
    Personally, I don't think there's anything on this thread that constitutes bullying from anyone.

    You really don't, as this thread shows.

    Like the drunk old man trying to shout and fight everybody in the pub then acting the victim when they get a bit back.

    Only after he used the words "one person is being aggressive " which is not true.

    He's passive aggressive , that's someone who's trying to get a reaction, isn't that what bullies do, we'll it worked.

    That's twice on this thread you have mentioned him and you have also mentioned him on other threads.

    I don't know who S.B.K. is, but he certainly gets under your skin .

    Oh well, I suppose I'm another one you can add to your list of people you don't like.

    It's ok I won't be losing any sleep over it because you don't come across as being a very pleasant person anyway.
