'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fans or critics?

As I have got older, calmer and perhaps become better educated in the games finer details, I have become more relaxed about defeat and crisis. I accept that as a fan of anyone outside of the established CL sides, you will witness more downs than ups as a football supporter, and clearly following Spurs hasn't been too stressful in the last few season's, yet still we whine and moan as soon as we have the merest blip in form and the boo boys come out in force and the fans forums erupt with dissenting comment and the blame game starts all over again.

Of course I care about my teams results, but I also realise that winning games and trophies are not the reason I support Tottenham, after all they were losing when I first followed them, so why should I expect anything different? What I do expect is to feel that my team was actually putting in some effort and not going through the motions as it appeared to be the case on Saturday. Losing to a better side, is acceptable, but at least I want to feel that our players are wanting to get a result as much as myself and my fell fans. If I don't feel I am getting that effort, perhaps I should be more angry and demanding that I get value for the hard earned cash I have had to pay out?

It is an impossible argument to win when debating whether it is right or wrong to boo your team after a defeat or just a poor performance. There will always be a thinking that when you pay your money, you have a right to voice your opinions and I suppose they have a valid point, but that still doesn't make their opinions right or reasoned, and that is where it becomes impossible to agree or at least agree to disagree.

So what sort of fan are you? I have to say I have never booed my team or an individual Spurs player. I just can't bring myself to do it. I also can never truly understand a fan who is constantly negative or overly critical. It makes me question why they watch football and Tottenham in the first place. However I know that others simply don't understand my passive support and feel it is their absolute right to make their feeling known, just as long as they pay their money at the gate. Question is, which one are you and which of us are right???
