What constitutes a good supporter?

Morning Gooner's,

As the title says, what tells us who is a good supporter? Many will say that a supporter who turns up for all of their teams home games is a real supporter, or the away supporter who travels. As the word states he pays for his ticket, whereby he supports. Would you say that that person is a better supporter than perhaps an oversea's supporter, who can only get to games when and if he visits the country, but he still see's his or her team on the paid for television.

What I want to know is this: exactly what happened in the dressing room at half time? Any ideas? Was it even legal?

The first half was one of those end of season games between two mid-table sides with nothing to play for. Only it shouldn't have been. Sure, the odd bit of skill here and there, but generally looking more like twenty two footballers who had never met before.

As an impoverished student at the time (well, alright, I'd spent my grant on alcohol) I couldn't afford to go to the semi final at Villa Park and had to rely on radio coverage. Goals from Alan Sunderland and Frank Stapleton were enough to get us to Wembley.

I am not a fan of the term "must win game" which we have heard so often (including tomorrow's "title decider" -as if!) but today really is a must win. No excuses, no silly mistakes, nothing but victory is acceptable.

We need silverware to bring the club back to the fans. The bitching from the Me Generation who have grown up with the ludicrous premise that "second is losing" demand a Cup and Arsenal have an excellent chance to keep them quiet for a while.
