I don’t particularly agree with you BC but you do debate properly with peopleI think it depends on what's said. There's some of us that just use the match forum a bit like an extension of if we were there with our mates, we comment on the selection, the formation, what's happening, who's playing well, who isn't, grumbling about the odd mistake etc and but saying "well played, great pass, what a move" etc as well.
I really don't get the issue with this at all. I don't agree with everything people are saying, but I'd rather argue it with them, rather than tell them they don't have a right to say anything negative (or positive).
And there some that do come out with, what I think is daft, the "fucking bottlers" "typical Spursy" "I fucking hate these fucking bottlers" etc I don't ever say shit like this myself, but again, I'll either point out why I disagree or just ignore it and treat it for what it is, people just venting frustration because ultimately it means a lot to them. I know that ultimately it comes from their equally irrational love for this club. And I know it makes absolutely no difference.
I also think watching at home is much harder and more frustrating than watching live, I don't know about everyone else, but I find watching at home on TV so much more stressful than when your there and there's so much more going on, you can shout and chatter away to your mates, have a laugh, take the piss together it just relieves some of that tension you feel at home - maybe because you feel like in some tiny little way when you are there you are part of what's happening, you can in some small way effect it, at home you just feel powerless, with no outlet. I dunno?
Know exactly what you mean. I was watching in the pub.What I am saying is, people love the club and those kind of reactions come from them because they feel hurt, that's the passion coming out of them.
It might not be nice and it might be misplaced at times but it comes from a place of love for the club because they feel like these players are capable of more.
Lucas for the second was fucking awesome too..... In fact 3 sweet goals in different ways.The more I watch that last goal, the more I realise how much of it WASN’T luck. It was all so deliberate and controlled.
Davies controlled tackle and pass to Son
The well placed long ball to Llorente from Sissoko
Llorente’s glance to the left to see where Dele was before controlling the ball to him with his thigh
Dele’s split second pause, and then the little flick through to Lucas
And then the cleanly struck pass into the bottom corner.
I’ll never tire of watching it.
