    Yes, I know that, I was countering the odd stance that it isn’t common vernacular/ or outside of Scotland.

    We weren’t even going to uses lasses. Then it developed into lasses or lassies. But a lot of females are involved so we agreed to it. :)
    I knew a few smart arses would latch on to it. Heard it all before.

    I was merely pointing out that it’s common vernacular in the NE England to those I quoted; it wasn’t a criticism aimed at FLAF so I’ve no idea what we’re disagreeing about.

    I'm not, I'm saying they are the only people using them where I am, and that I'd like to get involved but not with them.

    I'm not unsympathetic to what you're saying and I appreciate it's only been going a few weeks. I'm just asking for ways to get involved/do something with it beyond stickering places.

    Fighting racism on the terraces everywhere is relevant to all of us everywhere

    At the moment we are at the stickering networking stage. It’s grown faster and bigger than we expected. I have gone from myself and another person in my club, to now we have large groups in 7 clubs in my area. We exchange information, we are having an informal meet this weekend.

    They demos aren’t going to happen straight away . It’s about networking and forming groups. Just message anyone who lives near you or supports the same team.
    Three of us ( we didn’t know each other) just went for a coffee the other day. Coordinated stickering , exchanged info on known FLA members etc. Might not sound much but we have quite a formidable grouping in my area now and we aren’t placard carriers.

    No that sounds great and how you've gotta do it innit. It might be slightly tougher for me - I'm an exile. I know of people who are interested/following the FLAF stuff at my hometown club, and I know a few people who go to Wednesday matches and go along with them now and again, but I'm not in a position to take any kind of lead among Wednesday fans. But talking about it with football fans I know and thinking about what I can do.
