Could it all turn toxic??

Post by ToneLoc » Sun Nov 10, 2019 12:57 pm

Next home game vs the ‘beloved’ Spuds.
Picture it....no changes of note made by MP.... a pressure cooker atmosphere, Harry Kane arrives with his shooting boots on and we’re 3 or 4 down at the hour mark.

Will we see a crowd reaction resembling the 3-0 home loss to Burnley?
I don’t think it would be that bad but I can still see it being pretty fucking toxic if MP and his clowns turn up and down tools again...especially against Tottenham where the extremes of emotions are multiplied ten-fold.

No mate, there were special circumstances that day.

The fans had been whipped up into a fervor with the promise of a march. Flags were ordered and printed, hotels had been booked, the demonstration route planned, speakers organised and £26,000 raised to fund the event.

Everyone was told that they were marching against the board to enforce change.

Then all of a sudden the organisers pulled the rug following a meeting with Sullivan.

The trouble was that people were still unhappy, many had spent a lot of money and made a special pilgrimage for the event and weren't amused at the cancellation. As the goals started to flow frustration boiled over and the rest is history.

A heavy loss to Spurs is more likely to result in lots of booing and an empty stadium at half-time imo.

Yeah I agree mate and as you say, those were highly exceptional circumstances. But although I don’t foresee a full-scale revolt like we saw that day...... combine more stubbornness from MP, another abject display with a spanking by the Spuds and I think it may get a little more ‘tasty’ than just booing and empty seats.
For example, a lot of the subjects of the early-days anger may well cop a backlash......stewards, bar staff etc.
Soft targets who, for those that resented the move represent the move.
I really hope it doesn’t come to that but I’m genuinely concerned there’ll be some shenanigans if we get a tonking.

The one saving grace may be that it’s an early kick off so people won’t be as juiced up.

Probably won't be a repeat of Burnley, which was one of those games against a team which, according to many, "we should be beating comfortably". We didn't and that was probably what caused the blue touch paper to get lit.

Most sensible fans will have already written off the game against Spurs so unless it's an absolute 5 or 6 goal spanking I reckon it will be a case of shrugged shoulders and an acceptance of things.

Funnily enough I think the Chelsea game could be our nemesis. Lampard detests the club and the fans so he will have his lot well up for that game. He will want to rub noses in the shit that's for sure.

Honestly was thinking the same thing Tone. If Pellegrini is still here and we find ourselves 2-0 down early on i could see people on the pitch etc..

At least the points deduction which would probably follow any pitch invasions similar to last time would enable us to prepare early for life in the Championship. Every cloud, and all that. :lol:
