I knew as soon as John stones shushed the gwladys we were done as a support tbh.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Gotta agree and can't understand people downplaying this one.

I mean we’ve always been critical on the whole.

I’ve heard Ratcliffe say that it’s a great place to play when you’re playing well, not so much when you’re not; and I’ve heard Heath say that he thinks we’re the crowd that has the most effect on the home team, both good and bad.

It just seems like the level of what is acceptable enough to warrant “support” has been creeping up for the last 10 years or so without any justification for it.

It’s not this group of players, or manager’s fault if people are fed up finishing around 7th, or haven’t won anything for ages.

I think some of it is subconscious, some of it an attempt to keep standards up which is fair enough, but it’s actually making it harder to do well.

My Dad's one of those hypercritical supporters. Great away from sport but an absolute bastard at any game he watches. Always ridiculously negative dragging everyone within earshot down with his distorted views.

Although we all talked about it he just couldn't change so as a family we banned him from attending any our events. Perhaps there's something in that...

It is not only about Silva and the team ,there must be a lot of frustration caused by some posters having seen good times ,others not and the nature of the press nowadays ,everything and every players is portrayed as shit or brilliant from week to week and that has rubbed off.when I started to support seriously in the early 60's there was a limited tolerance for" having a go "at a player but too much and you were told by those around to button it ,along with a persuasive comment about the  likelihood of having your nose all over your face .Now it is so different and it will not get any better whilst there is so much money involved-why because all the frustration of not winning is controlled to a great degree by the top few teams turn over.

Really windy here at the moment. Hope that dies down; I've never seen a good game of football in the wind. It'll suck at whatever atmosphere there is too.

If we take a leaf out of Clough’s book and keep it out of the clouds we should be OK ;)

Fans arent critical for the sake of it. But we have been let down so many times, and particularly since Moyes left, that its bound to cause discontent.

When we had no money we over-achieved and it felt good to 'succeed' against the odds.

Since we've had and spent money and we've ended up sacking 3 managers and made no progress at all.

We need to keep the ball at our feet and be patient, that requires patience from fans as well though. Too often we go behind or even one up and then the fans turn if the ball simply goes out of play. I agree @Everton Mint we haven't had much to cheer about but laying into the current regime and crop of player at this stage is counter productive.

No one likes to be punished for making a mistake. Unfortunately, our players are starting to fear doing just that, at home. Nowhere near so much as when we are away. Our fan base, especially at home games need to understand, that encouragement usually helps to get results. The fear factor from the players has been prevalent in the last two home games. It was there for all to see. It's up to that minority that gets everyone moaning, to give it a rest. And the rest that know patience is a positive, to explain it to them. Unfortunately, we probably have the same ratio of knuckle draggers, as the rest of the clubs have to put up with. Goodison's deliriously intoxicating when it's rocking, but depressing and poison when it's not.
Steinbeck's maxim: “Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”.

That’s fine if you’re in impartial observer.

Supporters are supposed to be an advantage.

It feels like we’re not starting from a positive point of view and then criticising if stuff doesn’t work out.

We start at neutral and get worse.
