Some empathy is needed if I’m going to get my point across, but if we call ourselves true football supporters, then it shouldn’t be too difficult.
If we had to objectively rate our support for the coaches employed by Orlando Pirates, what would the verdict be?
Yes, I will admit, some of these guys employed to take over our club are neither friendly nor astute, but does this give us the right as supporters to add to an already tense situation by airing our distress inappropriately?
It’s become a custom in this country that we tend to vent rather than to express our concerns constructively. Perhaps we could learn to support Pirates even better from our European counterparts, who throw their support behind their clubs through thick and thin.
