Yeah fine - donít get excited, I get thatÖ

Just donít expect a Pat on the back from the manager for not being excited

I don't go away often but the fans always sound like they get behind the team away from home.

Get excited, don't get excited, I don't really care but booing players whilst we're in the playoffs? Yeah I probably would go straight down the tunnel as well. Either that or give you the finger.

Just imagine us getting 15 corners and as many shots on target as Northampton did. No one would argue with that and they would not get booed off. But we don't muster that in 3/4 home games.

Maybe Lindsey will give the supports the pat on the back they so desperately crave when they actually start supporting the team and creating a positive atmosphere?

That's your opinion though. Besides the away supporters have been great all season.
Home games have been pretty dire, and the atmosphere has gone downhill. Exciting football ramps up atmosphere, dull football doesn't strangely enough.

Iíd agree itís much better away, many possible reasons ( all fans together, less of the negativity in general) but the style of football isnít much different, I guess the expectations are less.

Same for most clubs, the away supporters tend to be more vocal than the respective home support. Shame as we had 10k in against Walsall but neither the fans or players could muster much.

The main difference between home and away matches is the opposition. At away games the opposition set up to play on the front foot which leaves us more space, makes the game more end to end and a more engaging spectacle for supporters to get behind. The only exception to this was Gillingham where they had a player sent off so early that it became like a home game with us just spending the game passing backwards and sideways creating next to nothing, Lindsey got pelters there as well.

At home as the season has gone on a familiar pattern has began to develop as the opposition have worked us out. They know that they just need to stay in the game first half so just keep it tight and our slow paced stuff doesnít work against a team sitting in and makes for an awful spectacle. Even at 1-0 down they know they still have a decent chance of winning as after 30 minutes we generally run out of ideas and then second half either through no substitutions or poor substitutions we gradually get worst and worst. The opposition then grow into the game and Lindsey seems unable to counter this and positively influence the game once it has started and almost without exception his changes put us on the back foot. Weíve not scored a second half goal at home since mid-October.

You donít have a fucking clue what my movements are of a weekend and how often I do / do not attend.

Either way, itís obvious to anyone the CG is a morgue and our support is negative, toxic and crap and hasnít been behind Lindsey from the get go (same with Garner) so Iím at a loss as to why they fans feel smug enough about their attendance that they feel the manager (who they donít get behind) has to go pander to them with a wave and clap

😁 My first thought reading through was fans getting all precious because the manager didn't clap them.. 🙄 Yet he is expected to put up with their 'criticism'  Wink

I saw this elsewhere and thought it appropriate considering the ongoing debate if lack of atmosphere at home plus other grounds.

Who said anything about booing? Unless I've missed something, why would anyone boo when we have won?
