I believe every Newcastle fan who cares about the future of the club should join the supporters trust. If the supporters are going to quickly step in and save the club when a time of crisis or opportunity arises we need to be organized and ready for that opportunity. The Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) is the only Newcastle supporters club setup as an Industrial & Provident Society (This is the best way for a large group of fans to organize and have ownership of a football club in the UK). NUST also receive support and recognition from Supporters Direct as the official Newcastle United Supporters Trust.
These things combined make it the only supporters group with the proper legal setup to quickly step in when financial matters are at stake or when a large group of supporters need to make legally binding decisions. If Newcastle United got into legal trouble the trust would already have the proper legal and democratic setup to quickly step in and buy a portion of the club. Even if the Trust is never in a position to buy the whole club having a readily organized supporters group who can be part of an emergency stabilization process could mean the difference between staying in the top flight and dropping to league 2 (or worse).
What if you already know about the trust and haven't liked what you see; what should you do then? You should join and get as many like minded friends as you have to join. If you feel that NUST are not acting in a way that is building towards a brighter future that is all the more reason to get involved and vote for new board members or even run for the board yourself. I repeat from above this is currently the best legal setup fan involvement. Get involved and shape the future!
Get involve and get organized. We will need it some day. Join Today!
