as i mentioned in another thread, i think its fine to boo if u feel the team hasnt performed & shown heart.
greame & joe u may have a lot of disposable income so it doesnt have as much of an effect on u.
but a lot of people who to the games pay a huge amount to see spurs. & these people are spending what little disposable income to see to us play. some save up for ages & some choose it over a holiday etc.
so when the manager & team perform like they did against norwich, i think they have right to boo at the end of the game.
im against booing during the game. & im dead against swearing or name calling.
personally i think someone who is poor & stillscrimps & saves for ages to afford to see us play is a good supporter.
maybe u guys dont.

Wow, you obviously got the wrong end of a very different stick, what makes a 'good supporter' is entirely a different debate, which I'd be happy to contribute to if ever someone see's fit to start one.
What definitely makes a 'bad supporter' IMO is someone, who boo's during game 3 of a season, that very act is not supporting the team, actually it is doing quite the opposite, it is publicly and vocally demonstrating you are not in favour or happy with what is being done. How will that impact the players? how does that make us- you the supporters look?
We are three games into a season, after a summer that saw a lot of change, to boo at this early stage demonstrates a real lack of understanding and knowledge of the game or group dynamics, what will it achieve? would that inspire you to try harder? or would it make you think what a bunch of morons, I'm off in January?! What must Moussa D have thought? he played well I thought, yet his new set of fans Boo'd him and his team mates.
'greame & joe u may have a lot of disposable income so it doesnt have as much of an effect on u.'
How does what any fan earn impact on our ability to support a Tottenham? Does someone's support of Tottenham have any more or less meaning if you are a multimillionaire or if you live on the street?
'so when the manager & team perform like they did against norwich, i think they have right to boo at the end of the game.'
I wasn't particularly impressed with our performance against Norwich, but then I wasn't impressed with our performance against Fulham last season that we won 3-1. So do the team deserve to be boo'd every time they don't play well?
Norwich beat us 2-1 in this fixture last season, since then we have lost Luka the heart beat of our team and VDV, who despite his short comings created and scored consistently. We have a new manager in place, surely those circumstances dictate that Saturdays fixture would be a more significant challenge than last seasons meeting.
Once you consider the changes we have been through recently in's-out's and the stage of the season we are at, I don't think booing can be justified, especially not by using financial restrictions or lack of, as an excuse or reason.
