    Is the FA OK with the club encouraging people to bring political banners in to football matches?

    Personally I'm not a fan of any of this sort of stuff. I feel like a big generalized assumption is being made about the political views of what is actually a very diverse group of supporters. For what it's worth, I'm also against the increase in poppy-bullying that goes on in football around Remembrance time. Community-based stuff I'm all for, and feel the club should be sticking to that.

    Won't stop me coming along to the match, but just my own view.

    alsoas much as people dont like to admit it or ignore the connection, but a lot of the community work wouldn't have to be done if it wasnt for the wider political views voting in Tories and evil bastards like that who seem to want to fuck over the vulnerable in society, at least these lot have the same idea to help those people, as do we, so a better fit than estate agents, actively supporting who I have mentioned the above.

    Refugee work
    Food banks
    Raising money for local mental health charities.
    Raising money for FBB who help the disadvantaged in our society
    The list goes on.....

    All could be seen as left wing ventures considering that these are the people the right wing do not give a stuff about. Maybe we should totally can doing community days in case they are seen as political and watch our attendances and media coverage plummet for fear of being a 'bit Clapton'.

    By the way, these are my views and not necessarily that of the Trust.

    There's an interesting debate to be had about this I would imagine. Obviously it won't happen in the shrill binary world of a message board though.

    Only on a left leaning bulletin board like Urban can people get het up because events that are being put on a bit too left wing for their liking.

    No, not when B.I.G can't think of anything better to say than 'have a look at yourself'.

    Fwiw, I get why some people might occasionally feel browbeaten, but there's some slippage here between that and acting as if there's nothing to worry about and everything is ticking over just nicely.

    i do not think they have any say in the matter as far as I know.

    I think you are quite in your right to fly EDL banners as long as the wording is not offensive, not that has ever been a good look for a club.

    I would have those down as humanitarian, the International Brigade commemoration is purely hard-left stuff.

    It was put forward by the Trust, wasn't it?. Does this mean that Trust is political?

    Enough slippage for you to start invoking the Nazis anyway.

    everything is political.... thats why this line of argument, keep politics out of football, is bollocks, lazy and short sighted about the world.

    so i suppose you'd object to kick racism out of football

    Well, I joined because I was worried about the club and the ground.....

    From those whose relatives I have spoken to about this, I doubt any of those who went would be described as far left.

    In fact fighting fascists cannot be described as far left. That is lazy. My Grandad used to bomb them from 20,000 feet and he was no leftie.

    As I mentioned above, this is a joint initiative put forward by the Football Club and the Trust.

    It looks like a number of people have plenty of ideas about the club's community and commercial work here. It would be good if you could follow through on them and get involved with the community and commercial sub-committee that is being formed. Everyone is welcome to contribute ideas and hopefully their time to help run these initiatives.
