Make Us Be A Positive Football Fans By Playing Good

How many time this season we feel good for a football match played by the Lads lately? I think we, the fans have all the rights to show what we saw from the team performance.

It was the Newcastle United new midfielder Joey Barton, made an extraordinary appeal for the club’s supporters yesterday to back manager Sam Allardyce following what he described as their vicious attacks at St James’ Park last weekend.

Vicious attack? I think not, we are just showing how frustrated we are to see the way Newcastle team performed in our last two ‘Home Game’.

“Unless they change that mentality and support the side through poor results, things won’t change. It’s the easiest thing in the world to be negative, but I’d like them just to try to be positive.” Said Barton, “I’m not saying it’s not deserved, but we want them to stay with us. Playing in that atmosphere is almost like playing away from home.”

If you think we are not staying with the players, St. james’ Park will not have 50, 000 more of fans sitting there every match-day, and there will be no 5,000 – 6,000 travelling Toon Army at Ewood Park today.

“This is a time for coming together and seeing who the men are among us. If we don’t, this club will be in big trouble. The onus falls on myself and the other big characters. It’s the time to step forward.”

Don’t make me laugh, show us how good you are and we will judge about it later Mr. Barton. Me and most of all genuine Toon Army always backing the team and players, and only some of those current younger ‘Boo Boys’ supporters that you are talking about here.

“We just want that little bit of patience from the fans. At the minute, given everything that’s going on, it’s not going to happen.” Barton continued.

“It’s going to be a slow process. There are not many managers who can turn around a club in five minutes. We have to turn the negatives into positives, and I think it is the demand for instant success that has proved difficult to overcome here.”

We understand that perfectly, and speaking about the slow process, we have been waiting more than three decades for the process and not worries about another decades if you want it to be a slow process, nevermind the bollocks we are the Toon Army.
