We don't really crucify 'our own' as a rule.

You didnt hear the noise from the West Stand then when his attempted pass to Facey went out of play?

It would be very unusual for the crowd to get on the back of a home grown player in his early career .
Jay Williams will get plenty of support .
It does slightly worry me how he would get on against a bully boy centre forward powerful in the air though .

Unfortunately, the exceptions break the rule.  Jim Hall, George Reilly, and Graham Felton (who may have been loved by the Hotel End, but used to get some terrible stick from the Terraces) come to mind.

George Reilly never received a great deal of abuse and I stood in the Hotel End.

IIRC he was the one who received the most, especially from the HE.

Sorry disagree - yes he did receive minor some abuse but certainly not the most. I remember Everitt when he first signed - different era; got a lot of abuse. As many say on here its all about opinions, so again disagree on the amount of abuse George R received.

Not my recollection - He was in the same squad as Keith Bowen and yes he got a lot of stick in his first season - he was a tall gangly player who looked uncoordinated and clumsy -  however I suspect rarely to his face as he came from some of the meaner streets of Corby at the time. Graham Felton loved for his speedy runs but not the most physical of player also got stick -  referred to as "Handbag" Felton by some on the sidelines.

Just an observation (I suspect I might get shot down on this one), but home grown players and ones we sign from elsewhere all wear the same shirt on matchdays?

Unless they do something that is glaringly obvious which deliberately damages the team, crucifying anyone for a genuine mistake does not only affect their morale, but almost certainly the rest of the collective?

Even if they don't read any SM posts, the likes of Cornell and Hoskins almost certainly are aware of the feeling from the crowd if things go wrong at any point in the game. Everyone makes mistakes in the team, but some get overlooked as their overall contribution is seen to be "worthy".

Both players have their limitations but no-one can deny that they are trying their best & until someone else comes along that the manager deems to be better, they will be in the team and therefore deserve our support?
In my opinion, yes, it's OK to have a grumble at a mistake. But it's then our responsibility as supporters to do all we can to help raise their heads again. I am still convinced that the supporters helped win the home game v Plymouth last season by encouraging the whole team for the entire game rather than getting on their backs at the first sign of a mistake.

As I said, I guess I am there to be shot at, but that's just how I feel?

I doubt if anyone would wish to be seen to criticize your post.

Mistakes are easily forgiven if the team are playing well and on top, but as soon as the team goes 2 or more goals behind all mistakes are greeted with groans. That's just the nature of football supporters.

From where I sit in the North, I never really hear any abuse towards any player, the occasional piece of vitriol by an one or two individuals towards Taylor aside!
