There have been a few threads on the subject of the Villa fan, and most understand the need to be a supporter.
There are no if's or buts about it, a scientific FACT, proven time and time again, in numerous studies* fans influence players, if you boo them, even if you are silent, it WILL effect their performance.
Oh boo hoo I hear from those who just wish that some idiot had offered them £30.000 a week to kick a ball around. Think about it, really, have a go, £30.000 a week, now you have to step on that pitch and prove to thousands that you are worth that wage, but more importantly that you are worthy of wearing their sacred team colours, imagine running out on that pitch 40.000 Villa fans screaming your name, can you imagine that lift, the adrenaline rush, now stop and imagine the silence or worse still, the booing, have a nice day Petrov, Harewood, (insert list here) we are standing by and watching the people around us sabotage a player, who plays for us, wears our colours, whoever he is, I don't care, he is representing the team I support and I will be damned if I will stand idly by and watch it happen.
It's time to stand Villa, stand up and be counted, if boo boys are around you and you don't feel confident enough to tell them to shut it, fine, stand up and cheer, clap, drown them out, if everyone around them did, they would soon get the message, and we just might get the kind of performances from the players and the team as a whole that we who support, so richly deserve. We pay good money and spend a great deal of time supporting our team, a lot of us can afford neither.
Stand up and cheer, It's infectious, people will join in, raise the roof for the players, it not only gives the players a lift, it gives the fans a lift and puts pressure on the opposition, certainly useful for the next home match.
This is my team, this is your team, we can have winners or we can have losers, and we most certainly will have a few players with no excuse for a poor performance, but lets let them know about it after they have played.
What do you want? It's up to you. UTV
*If anyone would like any links to a few of the relevant studies I am sure I can dig some out but if you just google it, I am sure you will find more than enough valid research.
