The fans are undoubtedly genuine , speaking for myself , I am certainly ignorant on most matters pertaining to how the Board operates . However , that does not make me any less a fan than anyone else . By the same token I do understand where Objective View is coming from with his comments . ( I do disagree with the point about the true fans ) . There have been some among us whom have quietly sat back with only the odd post throughout this season , watching this season unfold in the manner that they themselves had expected . Now that these events have occurred , such as the great start to the season , early premiership expectations , the resigning of the Maestro and our fall from grace , it becomes apparent that the same mistakes have been made yet again . It all seems like a bad dream that just never ends , but as Old Kogarah Boy pointed out to me earlier this evening " the fans will always be there " . Young , old or middle aged , from kiddies to the adults , the fans , whether they be ignorant or knowledgeable will effect change , eventually , as without those fans there will be no bums on seats , which equates to no money and no more jobs for the board .
