    I sometimes think that some people can't help criticising players at matches. They see someone try a flick or a manoeuvre that doesn't make it and criticise the move despite the fact the player is trying to make something happen. In another game another place they would be praising the same player if the move came off............So in other words they only praise success not seeing the game as others are seeing it...........

    False. That isn't the opening set of fixtures. :)

    Additionally, a couple of other tell-tale signs:

    1. There is no Friday night game in that list...
    2. BT Sport don't have the Saturday evening slot anymore

    Nope, we got the email at around 7am last year. There have been years where the email hasn't landed in my inbox until after 8.40am though!

    It's not great when that happens! <laugh>

    It can be stressful enough trying to get everything ready for the website and the announcement, but the people I really feel sorry for are the graphic designers across the clubs who are keeping their eyes open and fuelling themselves on coffee while desperately trying to get everything on the screen and accurate in next to no time at all.

    Especially if they sometimes get a 20 minute turnaround!

    I never moaned and groaned at the ground. Giving a player stick on the pitch won’t help their confidence

    I think footballers are pandered to enough. I think people have the right to voice contentment and discontentment.

    There are parts of all our jobs that we would rather not have to deal with, they are in the public gaze.

    I perhaps feel it better to be direct to people rather than snipe behind their backs. We all know where we stand that way. I guess we all handle emotions differently.

    Each to their own though mate :emoticon-0148-yes:

    No, emotions are expressive, and often in the moment but you seem like the ultimate superfan.

    Perhaps I’ll try it your way and reach enlightenment.

    Easy to forget how good JRod was for us given he was here for so long struggling to get back after his awful injury.

    Like your holier than thou comment wasn’t. Nice.

    At no point did I dig, I suggested you maybe seem a certain way, superfan in this instance but didn’t say it was fact.

    A little in the way you kept asking to Schad the other day, you overlook possible relevant part of what I have said to score an easy point. Well done you :emoticon-0148-yes:

    I still don’t believe anyone never utters a negative word, moan or gasp when watching a game though.

    Anyhow, we just signed a player and I apologise for having a different way of expressing emotions :emoticon-0139-bow:

    I think that was the point being made earlier about people shouting at the player when he's on the field and heavily criticising him.
    Do people really think that players will respond positively to that? From my own experience I would say no. Players know when they have made a mistake they really don't need people in the crowd to tell them. I would suggest we should encourage them to make up for their mistake and often they do. Shouting at players and calling them names during a game only has a negative impact.
    I recently heard some calling Long a ****er when he came near to receive a throw in.......all because a few minutes earlier he didn't pass the ball to a player open in or near the box. He just didn't see the guy..........he had three opposition players around him at the time..........so yes it does happen and in my view totally unnecessary..........
