I wont comment any more on the issue but if that were true... why did the protests stop once the team started performing, we went on a decent cup run and we bought a few players back in January...
Because people like yourself who seem unable to understand the reasoning behind (or are unwilling to do so) would have simply had a pop at them for 'not getting behind the team when we're doing alright'.
You've clearly made your mind up to sit idly by and do/say nothing to bring about change, whilst a failing regime continues not to properly support one of the best managers in the country.
If the Blue Union had protested during that time period, you and your ilk would have had a go at them for it. The Blue Union cannot win with certain people like yourself; the animosity towards them considering the damaging never-ending, never-changing situation at our great club is quite frankly baffling. We're all supposed to want the best for our CLUB (not just current team). Having a go at people who are only pointing our how badly run the club is seems counterproductive.
Would you start fighting/verbally abusing the man who told you that your house was on fire, or that someone had let the tyres down on your car?
Of course you wouldn't. If they told you to ring the fire brigade or a garage, you'd thank them for their advice and do just that to improve the situation.
