Political on entrance to ground.

Disappointed today to see a political board on the entrance to the ground today v Plymouth. Politics and sport should not be mixed a bad decision by the club.

Was it for a party in the election or a concept?

It was a party poster with "David Drew" in large letters.
I must admit that I was surprised and rather disappointed to see it at the entrance to Another Way underneath the "Next Game" board,
And I'm not making a party-political comment here - just a point of principle.

Probably left over from David Drew's launch of Labours Green Industrial revolution and climate crisis plans, held on 4th November in the CE suite. You come across this all the time, posters being put up by people and never taken down again.

I think it was last GE that the farmer who owns field above TNL had huge posters VOTE TORY. :lol:
Also at another away ground [forget which one] had a permanent poster for that areas MP.
I'm not bothered about posters. I will make my mind on which candidate I'll vote for without help from these political images.

I support this club BECAUSE it is not owned by the usual kind of capitalist crook. Let's have more David Drew posters, not fewer. He is a brilliant local MP and one of the few who is not out for personal power and money. Of course football is political. Almost every major derby match has ideological implications: thus my support for Barca against Real Madrid, Celtic against Rangers, Inter against AC Milan, Scotland, Wales or Ireland against England.

As a Chelsea fan, I can just about stomach a Russian owner for nostalgic reasons. However, if he sells the club to Jim Ratcliffe of INEOS, I will stop watching them. Capitalist, Tory, Brexiteer, major polluter. No thanks.

Today I went to garden centre at Whitminster and passed where the new Eco Park will be built.
On a thundering great big scaffolding platform was a double poster for David Drew.
Caught my eye although much was obscured by branches.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
