|Just thought I'd write in to express my
disgust at the way some of the crowd are behaving at the Lane recently.
I've been a Season Ticket holder in the Paxton since 1992 and this is
the most excited I've felt about the club's future.
So we've had a dip in form since we lost the Worthy Cup Final, so we
lost against Manure and Chelsea (what's new ?), but what I can't stomach
and feel I have to share with you, and anyone that might get to read
this, is the attitude some of our so called fans have. With 25 ...
I repeat 25 ... minutes of the FA Cup tie against Chelsea still to play,
these 'fans' were leaving in their droves. What message does that
send to the players. It sends a message that we can't be bothered.
I had to ask them why they were leaving with such a chunk of the game to
go. The reply was something along the lines of 'We're F***in' Shit'.
So, why bother coming then?
Again, last night at the Charlton game ... I could not believe my ears
when I heard people booing Hoddle's decision to take Rebrov off.
Let's face it, the little man tries hard, but the move has just not
worked out for him ... he could still be playing now and wouldn't have
scored. And let's not forget, his article in the paper where he
stated that he wouldn't mind playing for the Scum down the road.
So poor old Matty Etherington has to come on the pitch with his team a
goal down and booing ringing in his ears. Do these 'fans', think
that booing does the team or the player any good. All it does is
make the players nervous and not want to do anything in case they cock
it up. The ball becomes a hot potato and before you know it we're
back to dark old days of George Graham and we're hoofing the ball all
over the gaff.
One last thing, I thought the attendance was pretty poor last night.
You can bet your life it would have been full if we were playing a
bigger team than Charlton.
So the question I ask is "Who do
these part-time supporters come to see ?" Is it Spurs or the
opposition ? Are Spurs only worth watching because Man U or the
Scum are playing ? It shouldn't matter if we are playing Man U or
Macclesfield. SPURS ARE PLAYING. YOU COME TO WATCH SPURS
So come on people, show a bit of common sense and get behind your team.
If you don't feel like singing, then don't, but let's not get on the
player's backs at every opportunity. We're on the right track,
we've got a good board a great Manager and coaching staff and great fans,
when they are not moaning.
