Cheers.

re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Not a chance of changing it. Police days off on Thursday have been cancelled.

To change it to another day will be very very expensive for Cleveland Police.

littlejimmy Posted on 5/5 21:05
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Thanks, you capitalist strumpet.

Can anyone else read the existing signatures, or is it just me that can't?

Red_Clowne Posted on 5/5 21:06
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Why should the plods pick when we want to celebrate?

Only a mackem or a jawdee would have chosen a time when we're still travelling back!

mr_r_soles Posted on 5/5 21:14

Done it! Insane to even think of doing this the day after if we do manage to lift the cup.

northeastcorner Posted on 5/5 21:17
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

i may have mentioned it before, but im sure they are planning a parade win or lose, and even if they are runners up, i would still like to be there to show my support and congratulations for what is already a fantastic achievment

littlejimmy Posted on 5/5 21:17
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Of course, bubbles. But there's no harm in being prepared. And this proposed preparation is piss poor!

jax_1 Posted on 5/5 21:17
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Bubbles, they should be allowed to have a parade, regardless of the outcome of the match. Plod taking too much on themselves, without using any common sense, as per usual!

jax_1 Posted on 5/5 21:19
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

N.E.C. The officer? responsible, said earlier, that a parade will take place ONLY if we win.

AlphaGeeK Posted on 5/5 21:24
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Done.

sasboro Posted on 5/5 21:30
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

email it to any boro fans you know. also email it to the gazette and the radio stations. let tfm know in the morning as they have a football show from sat 12-2 with terry cochrane and jeff winter.

Red_Clowne Posted on 5/5 21:33
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Done.

Whoever has agreed this at the Club makes the FA look the height of efficiency.

Do any of the Club's own travel for the supporters not get back in time? Anybody know?

Red Clowne, that's a hell of a good point.

Rang TFM and they said to ring the Jeff Winter football phone in tomorrow. So I will!

northeastcorner Posted on 5/5 21:47
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

oh right. it was a while ago i heard theat anyway, i wasnt sure if it was right or not.

maybe we're tempting fate then?

Red_Clowne Posted on 5/5 21:51
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Litlejimmy - I understand the TFM coaches don't get back till 8pm, perhaps the Boro official travel may be similar - just a thought. If that is the case, it will be interesting to hear any explanation.


george123 Posted on 5/5 21:53
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

I dont like these parades - I think theyre pants. As im not getting back to Teesside til 11 ish on Thursday i'd like it to be held on Thursday.

re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Nice one, jax. 50 in just over an hour on a Friday night. Can't be bad! I'm going to ring TFM tomorrow and have e-mailed the gazette and BBC Tees/Cleveland. Century have got a answer machine manning their news desk. I intend to start sending this to the targets on Monday morning when we've got a few more signatures and maybe a bit more publicity.

jax_1 Posted on 5/5 22:20
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Goodo Jimmy TFM have 2 football related progs on tomorrow - Soccer Saturday, I think it is and Jeff Winter's prog.

Think you have to contact them via the feedback page on the website though.

Have you mentioned this on the IC Teesside site btw?

littlejimmy Posted on 5/5 22:32
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Submitted for icteesside.

Did you do IC Teesside btw?

littlejimmy Posted on 5/5 22:40

Done. I did icteesside as well, but it has to be vetoed by a moderator first.

jax_1 Posted on 5/5 22:41

The club asked for the parade to be on Thursday because the players want to get away on their hols. They have also said that they don't want a parade if they lose!

TeessideCleveland Posted on 6/5 1:35
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Maybe they want it on the Thursday as McLaren wants to pi$$ off on the Friday
Solution is don't let him on the club bus with the players and officials after the match on Wednesday - let him get a sub from the FA to make his way back to London

little_miss_sunshine Posted on 6/5 1:39
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Get signing the petition guys. It may have to be handed in on Monday morning to have a chance of changing the intended date of the victory parade. An advert will be going in the gazette early next week stating the date of the parade and the roads to be closed etc.

Thanks for your support everyone. The media seem to be asleep or are just ingnoring me. I plan to ring Jeff Winter's football phone-in on TFM tonight. If anyone has any media contacts who could help...?

fishface101 Posted on 6/5 11:00
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

The most stupidest thing i have ever heard the police are trying to save the overtime bill.More pressure should be put on ray mallon the mayor it should be pointed out that the people of teeside voted for him to be mayor they can vote for him not to be mayor just as quickly next time i'm sure he would soon change his mind if his position as mayor was put in danger i dont think there would be many people from the boro who wouldnt want this parade to go ahead

POWER TO THE PEOPLE

COME ON BORO

fishface101 Posted on 6/5 11:05
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Any other media not untill monday the legends should get on the case also try getting in touch with allie and bernie

When was this decision released to the public

What about the national newspapers see if you can get it into the nationals tomorrow

Every boro fan around the world should know about this and every single one should do something even if its just sign your petition

Lets keep the pressure on the powes that be guys and get this changed

re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Another jump on the band wagon by the Council/TDC/etc. Not thinking about the actual fans and Middlesbrough people.

littlejimmy Posted on 6/5 13:07
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Is it a phone-in on TFM now or just a talking shop? When I rang last night they said to ring for the 5.30pm Jeff Winter phone-in.

I've already come up against some negativity. Someone (who shall remain unnamed) asked on another Boro forum: "What's wrong with having it on Thursday?"

toddymfc50 Posted on 6/5 13:10
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

talking about bandwagons and jumping on
i know to a certain extent people cant afford to or get time off work but...
34ish thousand seater stadium and how many fans will there be at the parade about double even treble?

However having spoken to my dad (works at police HQ), he seems to think we'll have bog all chance as all police leave has been cancelled for that day already.

littlejimmy Posted on 6/5 14:20
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

It's proving difficult to get exposure. I've e-mailed TFM and the gazette and BBC Tees and I'm going to ring Jeff Winter at 5.30 on his TFM show. It doesn't help when they see my name and think "who the FH are you?" We need some media contacts! Please!

littlejimmy Posted on 6/5 14:28
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

I appreciate what you're saying, Boro85, but sometimes the result is less important than the essence of what is being done. We might well lose this battle, but we can still make our voices heard and let the powers that be know that we think they've screwed up.

Boro85 Posted on 6/5 14:30

re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Update: It seems that the Australian contingent are heading for the world cup on Friday. I don't think this makes a lot of difference, personally. A couple of missing players is better than thousands of missing fans!

juninhosmum Posted on 6/5 16:25
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Signed it already. It's ridiculous even to think of having it on the Thursday, as most fans who are there either won't be back, or will be too drunk to stand in the rain (probably) waiting for the bus and the ginger chipmunk to arrive.
My other half and son are hopefully at the match - they won't get back till Thursday evening. I'd love to go, but I live in Wakefield with two other kids to pick from school, so how can I go?
I think it's a ploy by Cleveland Police to make sure there's not too many people en route, thereby cutting down on the numbers they need to send - which they can't charge to the club.

manboobs69 Posted on 6/5 16:40
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

The australian should delay their trip by 2 days. they would have done had we won the fa cup as the parade would have been on the sunday. It is a good chance for the players to thank the fans for putting their life savings into paying their wages and following following the boro all over europe.They need reminding we have had to pay for 60+ games and also include travel in that!Some fans have spend thousand of pounds and will miss the parade as they will still be travelling back.Surely it is the least the players can do to thank the fans?

littlejimmy Posted on 6/5 16:42
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

It's a good point, manboobs. Can't see the Australian manager giving a toss, like. Why are they needed 5 weeks before the WC starts?

Camsell_345 Posted on 6/5 16:48
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Mac will also be off on his pre wc hols so he will want it done and dusted asap, so i can't see the date moving even if we dont get back to blighty till 9am etc i will still be there bleary eyed and all.

newholgate Posted on 6/5 18:35
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

The parade following the FA Cup final was at the end of the season, but it was still on a weekend. The is no excuse.

The only thing is, many fans signing the petition are using the sole arguement in their comments that 'true' supporters will still be travelling back from Holland. This is not enough to sway a decision. It only accounts for 9-10,000. The powers that be will see that as the arguement and think "Well, another 9-10,00 won't make that much difference, so it doen't warrant a change of date".

People need to include other major factors, such as tens of thousands being at work, many outside of Teesside; kids being at school and would have to truant to see the parade. These being the next generation of supporters could be encouraged to go if the parade were on a weekend, but you can't encourage truancy. The minimal amout of people watching on a Thursday would result in an embarrassment for the town, as any footage would be shown worldwide.

Can you imagine the comments on the news "Over 100,000 showed up to see the parade following the Carling Cup victory in 2004, but only 20,000 fans were there today, despite winning a European Cup competition. Could this be due to the loss of McClaren as manager, or is it just the culmination of Middlesbrough's failure to captivate the crowds this season. Attendance's for home games have also been low this season".

jax_1 Posted on 6/5 19:45
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Well that's why we are trying to do something about it Mike.
It's really not fair that over 10.000 fans will miss out because they are still in Holland. No thought has been put into this at all.
It wouldn't have taken much for plod to liase with us - they know where we are!!!

littlejimmy Posted on 6/5 19:50
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

I was on TFM talking to Jeff at about 5.50pm. He said he understood our concerns and thought it was a strange decision. When I tried to give a website address for the petition he hurriedly brought the conversation to an end, although I did manage to say it was on the FMTTM message board. Hope it was some use. I've sent an e-mail to Bernie Slaven via Century as well. I will ring them on Monday night.

Thanks to all who've signed up so far. Let's keep it going!

tony vickers is writing about it todays on th egatezettelive sight. its a pirty its com eout on a weekend and all the tickets chew coz you havenet got time to organise. ive phoned my councillor and give him a mouthful. everyone should do the same.

Hits the nail on the head!

Anyone got an e-mail addy for him?

re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Well at least you tried Jimmy, well done to you for that!

I've now e-mailed all the d.j.'s at TFM, will start on Century and radio Cleveland in a mo.

I was thinking earlier, maybe we should put in an official complaint to the P.C.C. too.

jax_1 Posted on 6/5 20:20
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

What makes you think that Mr Vickers has been reading this site again???

littlejimmy Posted on 6/5 20:30
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Hmm. The blog was posted late last night...just after the petition started. He certainly has his finger on the pulse. Anyway, sent him an e-mail asking him to give us a plug in any way possible.

Is that PCC the Press Complaints Commission? Or the Police?

jax_1 Posted on 6/5 20:43
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

LOL Jimmy, well you can't tell me he thought about the truant officers, all by himself


Police Complaints Commission btw


Right, that's Century done too. Have sent seperate mails to Ali and Bernie too.

Radio Cleveland next.





Can you think of anyone else?

Boro_Buddha Posted on 6/5 20:44
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

I am pleased that i raised this 'victory Parade cock' up post in the first place.

Well done for Jimmy following up on it.

Have you thought about the MP's? Stuart Bell is a Boro fan.

jax_1 Posted on 6/5 20:47
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

No good even attampting to contact Stuart Bell. The man does nothing. Never answers phone calls, e-mails or anything else.


Maybe Ashok Kumar?

littlejimmy Posted on 6/5 20:49
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Cheers, borobuddah.

I dunno about the Police Complaints thing, jax. They would probably agree with the reasoning - i.e. wanting to get as small a crowd as possible.

Can't think of anyone else. Might blitz the gazette's e-mails again and show them that we're getting close to the 400 mark. I reckon we could get over 1,000 by Monday if we keep this hoofed.

Good job everyone!

jax_1 Posted on 6/5 20:52
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

When I listened to the policeman who decided this, on the radio yesterday, he mentioned nothing about trying to keep numbers small. He just sounded like a little man who was trying to exert authority for the sake of it.

littlejimmy Posted on 6/5 21:10
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Is that Detective Chief Superintendend Mark Braithwaite?
He said in the Gazette that they expect the crowds to be bigger than for the Carling Cup parade.

Jax, have you checked the signatures lately? Last time I saw them there was only one silly one from someone signing as Tony Blair. Hopefully that was the only one. We're up to 380 now!

bodger69 Posted on 6/5 21:10
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

ALL SIGNED UP. MAYBE WE CUD GET A PETITION TO HAVE WEDNESDAY 10TH AS A NATURAL BORO HOLIDAY 2

jax_1 Posted on 6/5 21:20
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Well if they are expecting crowds that big, that's even more reason not to hold it on a weekday! Has that man got no sense at all. Yes, I believe it was Braithwaite! What a div he is ( * expects to see blues n two's arrive any minute * )



380+ WW, that's excellent but it just goes to prove that we have a legitimate complaint.

Have you seen them all - do you need them C+p'ing?

Have done what I can with regard to contacting d.j.'s at radio Cleveland but I couldn't do a great deal, not easy to contact any of them. We could really do with Fischers help there.


Have also looked at Ashok Kumars homepage but I can't e-mail him from my p.c. I can try and phone tomorrow though, if that will be any help.



Now who else, can we contact????


Do we have any contact details for Stevie G. himself? if we could make him aware of the upset this is likely to cause on top of the tickets fiasco, then maybe he could do something.

wellonside Posted on 6/5 21:32
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

It's a crime what your proposing Mr Malon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's taking a leaf out of Merseyside police's book, Liverpool did it the next night after wining the Champions League as there would have been well over a million people turning out at the weekend, this will not be the case in our Town.

Sunday afternoon is the only sensible and fair option (just like the Carling Cup remember?), put it this way, if any other North East side were to win the UEFA Cup they wouldn't make this mistake!!!!!

THINK OF THE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

littlejimmy Posted on 6/5 21:58
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

You can phone Mr Kumar if you like, and if you have his number. That would be good. The problem with all this is the timing, i.e. over the weekend. Still, it shows that there are legitimate concerns because we have got nearly 400 signatures. Hopefully we can grab quite a few on Monday as well. I intend to e-mail the club, Ray Mallon and Mark Braithwaite on Monday at some point.

Oh, and would love to see a few more of the signatures, if you've got time. Thanks for your help!

Not been in there for a while as it happens Shaun. Where have you been hiding? It hasn't been the same round here without your insults

Oh fukc off, you drama queen

I've been keeping away as they started log-checking at work, and I'd be the first to admit that I was a 'heavy-user'. It's been good getting the most out of work really, as I can enjoy my free-time without a guilt factor nowadays!

Well, I miss talking about the London Underground to Capybara, but I have my very own spokesman in captain5. He's my personal secretary. I dress him up.

Have you seen the amount of edits I've done tonight?? My spacebar keeps sticking and it's putting me off. It's like trying to get words out when you're drunk. You know what you *mean* to say, but they all comeoutlikethis.

jax_1 Posted on 7/5 2:29
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

LOL, it's cos it's out of practice You need to visit more often ( during the day obviously )

shaun_84 Posted on 7/5 2:39
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

I wouldn't be suprised if the other keys haven't ganged up on it, to be honest. I mean, all the spacebar does all day is fire blanks. I can see the 'e' key bitching to the 'm' key: "Just cos he's big, he reckons he can get away with typing nothing all day. He's done nothing the past year. Blank space. I have to work my rse off all day, even doing my capital E when I'm working with Shifty. I do the most common vowel, ffs."

He also said it would only be held 'if' we win

re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

youre doing a great job littlejimmy, even if it doesnt change keep it going until the thursday and then personally hand a copy over to steve gibson. You should try to get intouch with gibson about this if you havent already. if we win it he deserved a big turnout on sunday as a thank you to him from everyone. even if 1 or 2 players cant make it, sunday it should be

re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

according to quotes in the gazette from cleveland police spokeswoman that it is down to players and manager availability. so lets put some pressure on mfc and gibson to change it to the weekend

One more for good luck. GET IT TO 1,000!

And another.
Listen to BBc RAdio Cleveland at 8.45.

sasboro Posted on 9/5 9:24
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

its on 904, lets try to get it to 1000 today!

littlejimmy, how did radio cleveland go?

you should push on and be determined to try to speak to gibson.

littlejimmy Posted on 9/5 10:36
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

It went OK, thanks sas. I got across our main concerns.
I'd love to speak to Steve Gibson, but don't really rate my chances. I imagine he'll be on his way to Eindhoven. I know that the players set off this morning. I'm going down to the ground around lunchtime to do an interview with Tyne Tees TV and then I will take the petition to reception.
After I give in the petition, I think I will let it lie. I don't think we've got any realistic chance of getting the parade moved this late in the day, but at least we've put our point across firmly. I don't want it to detract in any way from the build-up to the biggest game in Boro's history.
Sound fair?

sasboro Posted on 9/5 11:05
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

you've done a great job littlejimmy, hopefully it will reach the very top and next time might just make them think a bit more. Fans power can be a powerful thing. nearly 1000 signatures is pretty good going! the club have seriously cocked it up and with plenty of stuff over tickets this season it was a perfect chance to think of the fans and even help attract new fans. how good would it have been to see gibbo lift the uefa cup(if we win) infront of 100,000 boro fans outside the riverside, if it were newcastle they would have had it on a weekend and woud have made big news

littlejimmy Posted on 9/5 11:19
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Thanks for your support, sas. You and jax have been great. I've certainly made some unusual alliances over this.

It has got people to listen. We only started it on Friday night, almost off the cuff, but we've managed to get coverage in the media and have had communications from a lot of people, including MPs. If only we'd had a few more days to get at it.

Anyway, let's turn our attentions to tomorrow night. We've got a cup to win!

COME ON BORO!

re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

HE, Vic has been in touch with me and gave me some very good advice. Read his blog, "Untypical Boro" and you'll see that he was with us all the way.

Well as far as I'm concerned, it's been an absolute pleasure to help you L.J. It really has.
I'm just sorry that I couldn't do more.

gatenby Posted on 9/5 13:20
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Good work LJ, but its been unsuccessful. Just been on radio clevealnd, saying that although thousands disagreed with the timing, clevaland police said the parade will go ahead if boro win, on thursday, 5pm (or 5:30, cant remeber, htink it was 5 though).

Good work anyways!

newholgate Posted on 9/5 15:48
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

At least that means most people will have finished work/school so will be able to go.

There are thousands of fans that could not get a ticket for Holland who deserve to see the parade. At least this gives many more of them an opportunity to see it. I know some live/work away, so still won't make it, but 5/5:30pm is more sensible than 12noon.

Its just a shame it wasn't well thought about at an earlier date and I hope the petition will stand out in the minds of the powers that be so that another time, it would be Saturday or Sunday.

littlejimmy Posted on 9/5 15:59
re: PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION

Thanks, everyone. Ultimate success was always going to be against the odds. We could have done with a few more days, but the news only came out on Friday afternoon.

That said, I think the petition has succeeded on a different level. With just shy of 1,000 signatures, it has sent an important message to the club and other people with influence.
