1 min applause for Bury F.C.

Recommended Posts

The FSA are organising a minutes applause for Bury F.C. not sure if it’s been mentioned on Owlstalk?

 

Football supporters everywhere were shocked and saddened when Bury FC were expelled from the EFL on 27 August.

A 134-year-old institution gone. Generations of fans left without the cornerstone of their community that so many of us take for granted. We fans often revel in the tribalism of our game but the deep love we have for our own club serves to strengthen solidarity when a crisis emerges. In the past couple of days there has been an outpouring of compassion, empathy and sorrow from hundreds of thousands of fans across the country and throughout the leagues.

This weekend be grateful that your club has a game to play, that you can continue your matchday rituals with friends and family, like every other Saturday. Soak up the experience and appreciate it... and in the 27th minute applaud for one minute in a nationwide display of solidarity for Bury.

 

Why a minute of applause on the 27th minute? Because on 27th August a football club was expelled from the league for the first time in 27 years. The FSA (Football Supporters' Association) wants fans to show that they care and we are angry that this situation has been allowed to happen.

The FSA is lobbying hard to protect our clubs from unscrupulous or incompetent owners - conflicts of interest have to be removed as owners have shown they cannot regulate themselves and our clubs deserve special protections more in line with those afforded to listed buildings. Football clubs are not just another business.

We'll need your support for that campaign in the weeks and months ahead, but for this weekend, let's start by showing supporter solidarity with Bury fans on the 27th minute.

F.ucking going to really help that. Absolutely disgusted with what’s gone on there. Should’ve had all 92 clubs in football league go round with buckets to collect for them or something. Similar to what we did with Rotherham.

We'll probably have about 65 mins of that anyway. :duntmatter:

Sadly they would be back in the same position a few months later.  The rot in the English game can't be papered over with a few bucket collections.

Exactly. I feel for Bury and their fans, would not wish this on any team. Just can't see what this will achieve and doing a minutes applause after they've gone is a bit like rubbing salt into the wounds. A minutes silence before the match might be more appropriate.

Sorry for my heart of stone. 

 

But why bother?

Whats the point, we could all stand around holding hands and singing songs to make ourselves feel morally righteous but it's not going to change anything.

It probably is a bit pointless...after the horse has bolted...weeing in the wind etc...but what’s a little clap between friends!

It’s a shame it’s to late to save them. Would have thought all the other clubs in the leagues might have had bucket collections etc for them. Deff count me in for the applause though.

We'd be better off having a minute of booing the two hats at the top of the game who stand by and let this sort of thing happen.

It's all right having a whip round but who do you give it too? Dale the fűčkîng [email protected]??

My sentiment. It's likely that 99.9% of the football community have stood watching this from the sidelines without offering any help.
