Absolutely embarrassing yesterday. I don't care about all the excuses of new years day early kick off etc its like that most weeks! Our fans need to take responsibility, and do something otherwise we'll keep doing what we are doing and stay stuck in midtable etc!Take the 38000 out of goodison and what is the difference. Nothing. Spend millions on players and staff and fail to realise how many points goodison used to get us every season. Goodison is dead. We have failed it in recent history. We are an embarrassment in our tight jeans too cool to support and make noise. Sit there and say we are reactive support. We were never reactuve support. Hung off the beams singing and chanting down to teams like forest/wednesday etc in the 90s in the street end. Now i look around last 5 years. Nothing. Nothing. Imagine young lads looking at the crowd across the park. No point saying oh leave them off. We will lose them. Wish i was 20 again. Id f those out of it who told us to sit down. Stand on seats. Hang of the beams in gt4. Support efc with noise. Ps to the young lads going to street end nowdays.....shame on ye!!!! Now whos next
Not sure it is , Ronaldo , Messi , Zlatan all the top players thrive on negative comments and vibes, Ferdinand said he used it to get amped and motivated , when he heard the opposing fans it made him more determined . Players like that win things, players like we have don’t as soon as it gets hard for them they hide .That's the bottom line.
Because people just don't talk as much anymore let alone chant. Bet you find most fans are either on Facebook, Twitter to vent or cheer...last time I went to a game a shouted "come on you blues" and fans actually turned round to see who was disturbing the peace. I didn't rally cry again. It's just not cool to cheer at goodison anymore unless a goal goes in. It's a sad time and I blame social media for it all.have we become the prawn sandwich brigade at Goodison. I think modern football in this country is flat at most grounds these days, tough to know the reason why people don't sing as much.
