Clapping in the 8th minute

Recommended Posts


Firstly I'm going to say I don't think it's ever a bad idea to show your support for a manager when he's going through a hard time, we talk about loyalty a lot and the word loyal is synonymous with this Football Club, even guys I've lost all faith in like McLeish, McCoist and Caixinha, I've found myself urging them on in games despite the fact I've known their time was up.

 

The problem I've got with this Gerrard applause is how contrived it is, I've no problem backing a manager or player when it happens naturally or organically but organised support just feels so fake, you're then forcing fons to make a conscious decision and it can  easily devide folk.

In todays Metro and Sun... Manks are fucking OBSESSED. But we give them some ammunition at times. :no:

 

"CHEEKY celtic fans are planning their own eighth minute tribute for Rangers boss Steven Gerrard against St Mirren.

Gers supporters last night sounded their show of support for Gerrard before Hamilton heaped more misery on the under-fire manager.

Ibrox rose to applaud Gerrard in the eighth minute - the number he famously wore for Liverpool - before David Moyo's Accies winner left them sickened.

It capped off a miserable start to 2020 for the Light Blues, with their title dream dead and buried and Scottish Cup hopes killed by Hearts.

Despite drawing with Livingston, Neil Lennon's celtic managed to stretch their lead at the top to 13 points and move closer to nine in a row.

And with the pressure mounting on Gerrard, gloating Hoops fans are preparing their own salute for the Ibrox gaffer at celtic Park on Saturday.

Popular fan account, Celts Are Here, appealed: "ATTENTION all celtic Fans: We are planning a minute's applause for Steven Gerrard on the 8th minute of the celtic vs St Mirren game on Saturday to recognise his contributions towards 8 and 9 in a row. We will also accept blinking instead of clapping!"

"In the 8th minute on Saturday could all celtic fans please show their support for Steven Gerrard!"

While most Rangers supporters took part in the eighth-minute applause for Gerrard last night, many fans on social media branded it an "embarrassment".

A supporter tweeted: "Fans actually doing the applause thing on the eighth minute for Gerrard.

"What a bizarre thing to do, cringe..."

Anyone from on here that went and watched that embarrassment and clapped, do you still feel the same now?  For the record I wasn't there but the guy you clapped sat in the dugout looking absolutely lost at the end against Hamilton.

Missed the game but the idea of clapping on the 8th minute was contrived and false.   And that is from someone who has celebrated many Gerrard goals.

I hate modern football 

mind the days when our support was great and things happened spontaneously. Happy clappy faggots have taking over, fucking internet has ruined the world.

Went to the game enjoyed the sing song, spoke about it the on way home , Monday at work , done to the following week , social media has ruined the lot of that , you get the occasion funny but mainly it’s a platform for folk to spout pish and hundreds even thousands buy it
