Why not demonstrate after the match outside the clubhouse,
I would not like to see it during the game as it's unfair to the
players and makes for a bad atmosphere.

John, you’re a tremendous benefit to the club and we need your positivity, but this post is really unfair.

I have never, ever known K’s supporters so united in my time supporting K’s! Behind the team, against the manager.

There are though some differences of opinion. For example, quite a few fans are unhappy about calling for the managers head during the match and believe this distracts from supporting the team.

I also have myself found some of the personal attacks on Leigh quite unnecessary. When I go to the match tomorrow it will be to support the team. That is my focus - not on being against the manager

What is ultimately the point of a demo? The board will be acutely aware that some strongly feel that Mr Dynan’s time is up. However I’m sure the board won’t be swayed by any potential protest (and nor should they in my opinion). So any protest will ultimately be futile but may be detrimental to the team and wider club. If we get some first time attendees through John and others commendable work to promote the club they may not come back if they witness a load of bile directed at the manager/board. Also what if Ks win? Will there still be a protest? To say you can protest against the team and support Ks to me sounds reminiscent of the Brexiteers saying you can leave the EU and trade with it in the same fashion as before. You can’t. You choose one or the other.

I think it would be fair to say that the board try and give managers every opportunity for the incumbent manager to turn things round and there’s no reason to suggest they’ll change their stance in this instance. And protesting won’t help.

I think what will have had the most impact on the Board will have been the detailed and well argued comments from Michael Cox , Taimour and others. The Board will now be mainly swayed by what happenes on the pitch- not by any demo. ( which would not be helpful when we have Kingstonian Youth at the match as guests)

I suppose it's highly possible that some supporters will do both - support the team and demonstrate about the manager.

The trouble is that demonstrating against the manager during the match can make the support for the team seem half hearted . Like people are really hoping for defeat to help ensure the manager gets on his way. I am sure that is no ones intention but it could come across that way.

I think things have jumped a bit.
Someone sais they "think" or "have heard" of demonstrations so we jump to the idea the match will be disrupted.I know not of any supporters who would intentionally upset a player without good cause
