Charlton & Leeds Co-ordinated protests

2 fine clubs with a lot of history between them and loyal supporters.

Both run by clueless, rich, egotistical men who have absolutely no idea how to run a football club. RD & MC have a lot in common - they are both hated by their fans. They have both proved how NOT to run a football club in the English Championship and both are stubborn enough not to listen to anyone else!

Both sets of fans are at their wits end. Both sets of fans have had enough and both sets of fans deserve far better.

So perhaps it would be an idea for both sets of fans to co-ordinate their protests against their respective owners? It would garner far more media attention than both clubs protesting individually, denting both RD's and MC's pride and reputations (if they could get any worse). It would also send a bigger message out to any potential rich businessman (or woman) that English football clubs are not their Subbuteo games, to be played with when they fancy it.

Perhaps if both clubs jointly protested (not necessarily at the Charlton v Leeds game) the message to both RD and MC would be clearer, that they were not wanted. If the general topic of football owners and their actions entered into the spotlight a bit more through the media, I think they would be more worried about how they are perceived than how they run their clubs.

Even a joint statement from both sets of official supporters groups, stating that they are now working together with a common aim etc. may be enough to ramp up a bit more pressure on both of these nutters! Done in the right way (perhaps via Sky Sports who MC has a personal issue with)......it could have an affect?

    Whilst it's a great idea in principle, my concern is that both MC and RD could not care less how much media attention their mismanagement receives.

    As you rightly pointed out, they are two of the most stubborn "business people" and I just don't really get that feeling that media coverage of our plight will make that much of a difference.

    Of course, I hope to be proved wrong for the sake of our club and English football in general but at this stage, that's my gut feeling.

    But if RD believes he is better than MC he may not like the association with Leeds and vice versa. KM may also realise if she remains hated at a failed club, she'll probably never get a CEO role ever again?

    This may have some legs there was a representative of the Leeds fans on Talk Sport (H&J show) and he mentioned our plight at least twice

    Great idea IMO. Maybe a co-ordinated walk out from our respective games?

    It could only be a one off - but some imaginative collaboration could generate some good press interest for both of us.

    It would be marvellous if collaboration between fans of Clubs with dubious owners to shame the FA. Its time the rules were looked at again, with a requirement on all Clubs that they must be run with diligence and competance, and that they must at all times be run in the best interests of their supporters.
    I must say though MC is a wonderful, competant owner, who has a huge amount of respect for his fans, and has done a marvellous job. Compared to the Rat and Pinocchio that is.

    I am amazed their is not a mechanism whereby when someone like The Rat and Pinocchio perform, the FA cannot ban them for bringing the game into disrepute. Lets face it the press Rat and Pinocchio have generated lately reflect badly on Football as a whole, not just Charlton.

    I'm in favour of this. Fans United will be powerful. Why should we put up with this and watch our clubs die. Pinnochio and the Rat Out.

    Do Leeds have a Trust?

    Maybe someone from CARD could comment on this proposal? I also like the idea of extending it to other clubs who find themselves in a similar situation to us and Leeds but this would need to be done gradually, the aim of which would be to apply pressure on the FA to look into the way clubs are being run generally. I'm nothing to do with CARD but would like to play a part in this if it becomes a viable idea

    A mass walkout by fans of different clubs such as Villa, Leeds and Charlton plus others would send a strong message the fans do play a part in making the clubs and the game what it is. They MIGHT feel the need to act.......maybe not!

    Excellent idea. Joint demo before the game perhaps?

    Yes. Perhaps we could be "twinned" with them.

    Great idea.
    Why don't 98% of us boycott the match up there on the 30th of April.

    Word of warning however: Many Leeds fans think that we've 'had it easy' compared to them as their struggles against owners have been going on for over 10 years with the Bates thing. Whether or not they'd be up for something like this I can't say.

    I'd make a point of travelling up if there were some sort of protest in the pipeline.
    Look forward to hearing of any potential developments.
