great, its especially important for us,(Balkans/sth eastern Europe)  situated 1000's of kilometers away from Anfield to have a local identity and to ensure supporters , potential fans, ex-pats, & visitors have a "home from home" where they get TRue info and not the media BS!

thanks for the email address we have emailed SoS to develop our branch of the Union in the Balkans..if any one else on RAWK is in our region please send me a message.

Still waiting to hear from people to fix up a London meeting.  In the meantime, I've joined the London Supporters' Club so that I can attend their AGM on 15 July and try and canvas attendees.

A propos of not much, I'm member 2531 - see last post.

Swedes - get your rumpar in gear and pull yer fingrar ut.

Send an email to joackimlundberg@hotmail.com , state where in Sveeden you are and what your SoS membership number is. If you are in Sveeden (irrespective of what nationality you are!), and are not yet in SoS then join NOW and then do the above (better still, let Jocke know you've joined).

I've lived here long enough to know how damned passive you lot can be, so break the mould and get active. Get involved. Help rescue the club you love. Or I'm coming after yers individually ;D


I´m joining as soon as i get this months salary. Money´s been really tight, so not been able to join yet, but will join next week.

That´s a promise.

Nice swan :D Sweden is looking good for its part in this - tell yer mates and tell them to tell their mates - Jocke's doing a stunning job of rounding up support for SoS and the hopefully-soon-to-go-live Sveedisch Brancsch.... ;) :wave

For anyone in the Midlands it would appear that it is better to start off with a Birmingham branch first and then see how it develops.
I know rtdh has been in touch with the potential chair of a Birmingham branch and I have just mailed him myself with numbers of potential members.
Has anyone any idea of how many members we are looking at for this branch?

So far got 5 definates, 6 potential and a few apathetic ones who I'm trying to convince. I'm surprised that there's still a number of supporters out there who haven't grasped the seriousness of the situation.
I'll keep plugging away though.

UPDATE - London branch

I believe, that the lads trying to get something up and running in Outer London have agreed to start off with 1 London branch and take it from there.

We are going to have an inaugural meeting (I've got a pub "function room" near Liverpool Street that can hold at least 50), that Graham Smith will come down and chair, so we're waiting on his availability - watch this space.

MODS - can I start a separate SOS London branch thread in due course ?

Count me in... are there dates set?

Anyone doing a cork branch?

Haven`t time to get involved in the runnig of it with a young family and all that but i`d definately be up for going if there was.I`d also try round up a few more to join the branch too.

I've got no problem with that - it's not a case of competing branches - I was swapping e-mails with Chris yesterday, and he seemed adamant it was going to be in Sutton.

In the absence of anything else, I would have given that a whirl, off the beaten track though it is, BUT, thought I'd try and see if Central London would work better.  I've had a lot of interest on RAOTL and can drum up a few bodies myself.

Roy saw my thread on the RATTLE and started this, simple as that.

Upshot, working in the City and living in Kent, they are easier locales for me than Sutton.
I don't know where you got that from, Chris has been emailing about venues in London.

Whenever I see a Liverpool fan I walk up to them and discuss SOS with them, a couple of times they have actually written down the web address to look into it further.

I think it would be a good idea to create business cards for us to hand out to people we see in the street that contain enough information to understand what it is we are trying to do.  Certainly when you see parents in Mcdonald's or in the local shopping Mall its easier to give them something to take away with them. 

The way I look at it is this - we may not be able to stop OOT's from coming up for those once a year matches and why would we - everyone is entitled to make the pilgrimage - but if we can educate them and make them pay subs to SOS and buy a couple of alternative Liverpool kits instead of buying in the club shop then we are making an impact.

I think the cards should have a message on the front describing what we do and the alternate kits we are producing and contact details on the back. 
I'm not saying I disagree with you but, you're pissing in the wind if you think calling someone a c*nt on the net is gonna change the way they think.

Thats a brilliant idea. I was walking around my local town centre and there were a few people I saw with Liverpool Tops on who probably don't have a clue as to what is going on.

Hence the business card idea, instead of repeating myself an agreed message etc.. would make my life a bit easier

I will spend my lunch time coming up with some ideas and try and find a way to post them up.

I'll definately take part in a midlands branch, though rotating the meetings between east and west would be good as its a fair treck from nottingham on a regular basis, maybe Derby as an almost halfway house.

For the record, he just said "Oop, saw that a little bit too later but am mailing you right away." I presume he means he's emailing Minore? In any case, one more Swede on the case. Get in there :)
