Shakers Reaction - Cherries II

Last updated : 18 January 2010 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

After a disappointing home display, and result against Bury on Saturday, Liam Feeney calls for support after a small section of the crowd booed the team off. Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Feeney is quoted as saying: "Although we hadn’t played well in our past couple of home games, I thought we played as well as we have for a few weeks against Bury.  If you give people something to shout about then they will. But I’ve rarely seen anyone perform better once they’ve been booed. I think encouragement is a better way to try to get someone to play well. Under the circumstances, I think we’ve done brilliantly to get to where we are and I know the majority of our fans agree. They give us their full support and we can hear them all around the ground. I know it is only a minority but if you are getting booed and then you make a mistake or misplace a pass, it can make you nervy the next time you try to do something. We need people behind us when things aren’t going our way".
