Agreed, and as I say, booing is neither constructive nor helpful. I'm just saying it's not necessarily fair to label it as a reaction of the "spoiled".
Thing is 'they' don't understand football, otherwise Daniel Levy would let ''them" pick the team.
Well, in this case they were booing the decision not to have Defoe and Ade together. They wanted two up front. So they were booing the tactics, not the players.
I Think booing at the end is ok, but during a match because you don't agree with a substitution is awful, I feel. It sends such a negative message to the players. What would they have done if Ade would have scored two? How will all the boo boys have looked?
Sure, boo at the end if you don't like what you have seen.
Booing a player I agree is awful. I use to nearly get into fights over people booing Jenas all the time. Hated it.
I think there's a view (not just held by you) that booing fans are childish and spoilt, and it's a sort of modern fan "prawn sandwich" type thing - the fans that have a false sense of entitlement and don't really understand what football is all about etc etc.
In my experience while it is childish, it's actually more about the traditional fan's reaction to the modern player and the modern game. It's the fans that travel for an hour, pay a fortune and stand around in the pissing rain that tend to boo loudest, as they're the ones most aggrieved by the £100k a week players preening around and not putting in the effort. It is a sense of entitlement I suppose, but not to seeing the team win, but to seeing the players put in the required effort. And I think we are entitled to that.
OK yes, in this case they were booing a manager's decision, but as nick says above, eventually the boos just become about everything. Really the frustration on Saturday was all about the general perceived lack of effort overall.
