WHAT NOT TO SAY TO FANS: Last week, the struggling (relatively) big name striker for my home town team called the fans "fair-weather" and accused of them coming to the stadium just because it's "fashionable" nowadays (even though the team is struggling a bit).   This is coming from the guy who's scored 6 goals in his 30-match career for the club.  Even though he quickly apologized, he got the living crap whistled out of him in the last home game.  Basically, the fans refused to cheer and whenever he touched the ball, they let out a chorus of whistles.  Only when the player was substituted with just a few minutes to go did they start to cheer.  Which is usually pretty impressive when they get into the swing of things (considering how small the stadium is):

The obvious lesson:  unless you're Jose Mourinho, don't slag off the fans.  Especially when it's not really true what you're accusing them of.  Even if you're Jose Mourinho, consider doing so lightly.
