The 1958

Some things are worth fighting for…

Statement from The 1958

Jan 11, 2022

Following on from our initial tweet this statement is to provide detail and clarity on our actions and intentions moving forward.  Our support is fractured and we want to strive towards solidarity. Bring back our core values and how we are viewed as a club. We are all aware our club needs a reset both internally and within our fanbase. This goes beyond football and our performances on the pitch. 

Below we have set out some key pillars for progression:

  • Movements against the Glazers and any new nefarious intentions.
  • Revealing truths about media backed outlets used for personal financial gain at the expense of generational fans.
  • Exposing the press, journalists, Glazernomics and any other odious individuals damaging the club and traditions for their own self-promotion.
  • Plans to unify our fractured fanbase across local, national and global demographics
  • Plans to attract, encourage and lead the next generation of reds (like our families have done for us)
  • Respect the badge and club to maintain our history, traditions and culture. 

To address our name and avatar. It is based on the 1958 FA Cup final badge. After the Munich tragedy and against much adversity the club, community and fans around the world came together to support as one. A miracle really that this team reached the cup final. It’s the Phoenix, a symbol of hope and rising up against all odds. This is profoundly precious to us. We have had members of our families who were personally involved and affected by Munich. We embrace our history and culture and will respect this beyond reproach on this account.

We are not going away. We are committed to change and making a difference with both actions and revealing truths. We are not here for self-promotion or likes.

We will be reaching out to like-minded groups that we can trust who will uphold the same values and principles.

Some things are worth fighting for.
