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

Lets hear it for the boys!

Recalling the comments by Clint Dempsey about the tense atmosphere at our recent home games, I was hoping to see and hear a real positive vibe in a must win game on Sunday.

I often think that when people write such statements, they are demanding that fans simply praise the team blindly and regardless of how they are playing, but it is also obvious, that all too often we as fans have tended to get our panic's in early and get on the players backs if all isn't running to plan after the first 20 minutes or so. At the very least there has to be something in between and despite the feelings from some that when you pay your money, you are entitled to voice your opinion. However aren't we also there to support our team, even when things are not quite as we hope?

As the 'voice of reason', I have never booed a Tottenham player and tend to follow the theory that players don't deliberately set out to play badly or that managers don't pick teams to lose, but these things can happen, whether you are playing on the biggest stage or for your Sunday pub team. Of course I shout and swear at the idiot who gives the ball away or the striker that misses an open goal, but what is always important is that these moans are in isolation(ish) and on balance I support the team, regardless of whether we are winning, losing, playing well or absolute garbage.

This Sunday, our team need us and we need them to put in a top draw performance to beat a City side that have won eight in their last nine games. Even if things aren't going well, lets get behind the players and sing for the team. I never quite believe that the fans become an extra man, but I certainly believe that in supporting as opposed to being critical, eases pressure on players whose performances suffer as a result. Lets at the very least not give the players the excuse that they felt the pressure from the home crowd and instead lets get behind out team and who knows we might get rewarded with three points this weekend...
