If you want anyone to succeed you’ve got to get behind them and support them.
Of course you’ve got to be honest,but I don’t tell my kids they’re crap,I might make some suggestions but I’m going to put my arm round them and try and drag them up.
It’s pretty clear that some of the players need an arm round them from us.
As a supporter of the club surely we’ve got to help them out,they’re doing it for us as well as themselves.
Our attitude changed a bit when we met JR last year,I’m not going into it again but it give us an insight into how affected the players were by the game and their performance.
Nuge was virtually suicidal because he’d missed a chance(which Messi wouldn’t have scored).
We made a point of giving JR and Nuge a standing ovation ever since(well Nuge☹️)
And yes I might come on and take the piss out of them sometimes but it’s always balanced.
Just get behind the team FFS!
No problem with fair balanced criticism or banter.
