Shame on you.......

Shame on you.......

Its a shame. In an era where players hold the power, an era where if a player wants out, they slap in a transfer request and move on with their lives, peeving off everybody at their previous club, we have a man, who

A) Is on pennies

) Gives his absolute best

) Cops a heap of bollocks, yet comes back again....

Incase you dont know who I am talking about, its Keith Andrews.

How dare those in the stand bag him out, week in, week out. His performance was actually pretty decent today. He moved the ball just fine, probably didnt get as forward as some would like, but he tracked back well and covered outwide as needed.

Did Jermaine Jones get booed when he lost the ball in midfield 3 or 4 times?

Did Chris Samba get booed after his poor marking for the opening goal?

Did Michel Salgado get booed after Lennon dazzled him 3 or 4 times?

Did MB Diouf get booed after missing his third opportunity, or every time he fell down...

No

Then why the heck does Keith Andrews become the target, every single game. The lad is not a superstar. Oh Boy not even close. But he doesn't carry on like one either. There are many midfielders out their plying their trade who would sulk at their banana going off yellow, yet Keith pulls up his socks, warms the bench and slots in when called on.

Its an arguement I am not going to win, but as long as Keith wears the Blue and White halves (or the red), he will get my support.

To the boo boys in the stands, shame on you....the lot of you.

Sorry Sas but this is totally wrong.. Andrews was nowhere close to giving 100% today.. Wimp tackles.. when he actually bothered to tackle anyone.. he gave it away several times with no effort to win it back.. when we were breaking out he ran out at a jog.. He should never play for us again. He is not prem quality.. what the Hell are Grella, N'Zonzi, Pedersen, Lowe all doing out the team with this clown in.

I thought it was pretty disgusting the way the fans were today. rover23, i can agree with you to some extent in that he put in 'wimp' tackles and he gave the ball away several times. However, i cannot blame the kid for giving the ball away several times (by accident). He must have been papping it everytime the ball rolled to him because of the boo's coming from the stands everytime he got on the ball. Seriously, ur own fans booing you? It just wasn't deserved.

whether he should be in the team or not is a different matter altogether. Fact of the matter is he is in the team, and has been when fit. Disgraceful in the stands

TBH I didnt think he played that Bad, But thought Keane was again got it all wrong, Roberts was once again shocking, whilst the substitutions were as shocking, Taking dunny off summed it up for me

andrews started the match well, but faded away. he's certainly not the worst player on the field tonight (i think roberts and jj were worse), but he will always be the scapegoat unfortunately.

I have to say I was surprised to see him in the starting line up with the likes of N'Zonzi back to full fitness but to boo the lad is absolutely ridiculous. It's not going to help him play any better and achieves nothing for the team. Well said SAS

Agree totally Sas... He may not be very good but if someone can tell me what exactly booing your own player is going to achieve then I would be glad to know?

I completely disagree, Sas. He was woeful tonight, us fans at the match don't all agree a player has played bad just for the fun of it. I don't condone booing your own player, and never will. Those that booed ought to be ashamed of themselves, but I agree with rover23, he should never wear the Rover's shirt ever again. We have a squad ripe with midfielders, so why the heck did Kean pick a guy who looks lost at this level? It's Kean's fault every bit as much as it is Andrew's fault.

I completely agree with Sasman. as soon as he is selected he is a Rovers player and should be cheered and encouraged. no player should be booed. In his case it was from the first whistle and not even about whether he played well or not. Those who booed are not proper fans in my view.
