I believe it's important that one section of support isn't seen as "ducking the issue."
So, whether it's held in the Club Bar or The Plough, I think the more "established" supporters should be there as well as those whose alleigance is more recent, just as those who incline toward a managerial change should be allowed to say their piece, along with those urging caution and those 100% behind Andy. So, Dave & Darren, whether you say anyhting or not, I think if it comes off you should be there, if only so you can't be accused of talking from ignorance if you later comment on the proceedings.
We need to agree the venue & a basic format. I appreciate Chuuby Jim's reluctance for any thing too formal - I don't really favour a strait jacket, Mr Chairman, style format myself, but there has to some sort of structure, to prevent it degenerating into a slanging match.
Clearly some sections of support feel alienated from others. If nothing else, this could be an excellent opportunity to make clear this is an inclusive, not an exclusive club, as far as its support is concerned.
And, Daz. What a delicious irony that you are now seen as Mr Establishment, after being reviled, in some quarters, as the Angry 'Young' Man, the Rebel Without A Cause, barely 12 months ago. God knows what they think of me - and I once had to endure a verbal attack, from a former chairman, during his address to supporters at an official function & was previously described by Chas Webster, along with himself, as one of the "lunatics, who had joined the asylum." Both in connection with a little publication called "The Halfway Chat." Now who remembers that?
