This is a message to all Blues to please back the movement which aims to get your views heard at Manchester City Football Club.
These are as uncertain times as they come for Manchester City Supporters the world over. Whether it's tactics (or lack of them) on the pitch, deep concerns over the direction the club is taking and how it is run, what the board's intentions are or more destabilising rumours of our club being bought by somebody somewhere every Blue has his/her opinion.
It is more important than even in the Murdoch ruled football era of falling attendances, circling foreign investors and relentless tidal waves of money falling into players and agents pockets for the fan's voices to be heard.
The MCFC Supporters Trust Working Party will be holding an open public meeting for all City fans and shareholders on Sunday 4th March 2007, 2.00pm at the University of Manchester`s Renold Building, Sackville Street Campus, Altrincham Street, Manchester, M1 3BB.
The MCFC Supporters Trust Blog takes up the story....
'In response to growing concern about the future direction of the club, we will ask fans to back the formation of a Manchester City Supporters Trust. All City supporters are welcome and the meeting will be used to present the principles and philosophy behind the Supporters Trust movement and the national body representing it, Supporters Direct.
Working party spokesman, Ollie Goddard, commented: 'City fans have a reputation for being both passionate and fiercely loyal, yet the fans are becoming increasingly marginalised. Our aim is to readdress the balance by putting supporters back at the heart of our club. We hope to provide fans with a collective voice, a means of communicating with club management and a way for individuals to affect the future success of Manchester City."
We will also outline our aims and proposals and have invited a number of special guest speakers to voice their opinion on a variety of football and City related issues.
Please e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org for a detailed map.
We look forward to seeing you there, if you have any queries, input or feedback please contact us using email@example.com
