Our young reporter is back after finishing his school exams and has a simple message to those that booed Brian Laws & the team in recent games.He is absolutely right and a few of us need to take heed on his basic but effective message.

Hiya, Vital Burnely Clarets I am back doing articles again, I left to revise on my GCSE’s has I recently had my Maths GCSE exam and my P.D exam, So my returning article is all about:

The Fans Booing the Team!

In Burnley’s last 2 games against Stoke City and Wolverhampton Wanderers, the fans have booed the players at half time.

Seriously booing the team against Stoke was really not needed, The lads didnt get a chance to play at all in the first half.

Every move we made ended in either a tackle or a bad pass. The players was unsettled by Stoke’s ‘Long Throw’ Goal, It was bound to happen.

There was no atmosphere at all! Once Stoke scored they continued to play long balls over our defence which caught us out all the time just like their throw-ins did.

However I was shocked at half time to hear the fans boo the players off. The Longside chanted ‘Come on Burnley!’ but that wasnt the point there was no need for any fan to boo them.

I’m glad at full time they were not booed off because the 2nd half performance was brilliant. The game was a turning point for Burnley but it was a pity it only ended up in a draw when we really did need to win.

However against Wolves the performance was a bit better, I still thought they was no need to boo the lads. We saw Fox taken off injured which was a blow to the defence.

This was an opputunity though to then see Stephen Jordan come on and replace Danny Fox and Jordan I thought had a good game. So did Paterson, Thompson, Nugent, Elliott and Blake.

I really didn’t appreciate though the booing and the chant ‘You don’t know what you’re doing’ aimed at Burnley boss Brian Laws at the time of the Eagles substitution.

He obviously did know what he was doing because once Robbie Blake came on there was a lot more attacking play coming from Burnley. At full time there was even more booing. Seriously if you are going to boo your team why watch them? Booing the players drops the confidence, morale and atmosphere so it does more harm than good.

Get your acts together Clarets!

Create an atmosphere and stop moaning verbally at the players and Laws in particular during games!

We can still stay up! But to do that the manager and players need our support! So come on BURNLEY!!!!

‘We love you Burnley we do, Oh Burnley we love you!’
