Blinded by the lights

THE CLUB IS IN DANGER OF BEING BLINDED BY THE BRIGHT LIGHTS OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE AND OUR CULTURE IS BEING SOLD OUT IN THE PROCESS.

NFL-ESQUE LIGHT SHOWS, SELHURST REFERED TO AS A “STADIUM BOWL”, T SHIRTS THROWN TO AWAY FANS, THEIR ANTHEMS PLAYED IN THE CONCOURSE TO CREATE A “WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT”.

THIS IS EVERYTHING OUR CLUB SHOULD STAND AGAINST AND ALL CONTRIBUTES TO ALIENATING OUR FANBASE AND TURNS SUPPORTERS INTO PASSIVE CUSTOMERS.

SINCE ADMINISTRATION OUR TEAMS HAVE BEEN BUILT ON LOCAL LADS AND LEADERS WORKING AS A TEAM, TO A MAN GIVING 110% FOR OUR SHIRT.
LOSING JEDINAK AND SIDELINING OTHERS WHO INSPIRED THE SUPPORT HAS DESTROYED THE UNITY THAT ONCE POWERED US AND HAS RIPPED THE SOUL FROM THE CLUB.

AS WE MOVE TOWARDS A BLAND GENERIC PREMIER LEAGUE IDENTITY, WE CHANGE EXPECTATIONS WHICH LEADS TO NEGATIVITY.

OUR RECENT SUCCESS WAS BUILT ON A UNIQUE, PROUD PALACE MENTALITY, WE NEED TO GET BACK TO BASICS AND REMEMBER WHAT HAS BROUGHT US THIS FAR.
