How on earth can anyone boo Harry Maguire in an England shirt is beyond my comprehension. He has been absolutely outstanding for England and helped set up 2 of the 3 goals last night. The people who did it last night are just thick morons and unfortunately every club has a sizeable section of them.They are literally like sheep, one thicko starts it up and it spreads like COVID amongst the others who are incapable of thinking for themselves.
I don’t actually understand why any ‘supporter’ boos anyone on his own team- its just stupid and counter productive if the collective will of all of us supporters is to get the players to play better, it just makes them feel resentful.
Its great to see Miles Leaburn scoring a hatrick for the U23’s yesterday, playing well above his own age range. However, it put me in mind the abuse his Dad used to get when he played for us. He was an excellent player, focal point for attacks, unselfish, brave and scored his share of goals. However, he was tall and could look lumbering and ungainly at times and a section of the crowd expected him to combine his strength with the grace of someone 6 inches shorter. Miles is 6 foot 5 inches tall now and Charlton will need to be very careful with how quickly they bring him on.
Supporters are supposedly more patient with home grown talent – except they aren’t, Nick Pope, Morgan Fox, Kevin Lisbie and Karlan Grant are just a few of the talented youngsters who got a hard time from the ‘home supporters’.
I well remember standing behind a guy at Selhurst who used to spend the whole game shouting at and berating Robert Lee as useless and he went on to play for England.
