    Talking generally. Twitter is great for it. Every Bohs fan crying about how we dared to play defensively and not let them score. It's great.

    We are 100% deservedly 14 points behind you. But not based on either performance against you. You have been poor, with barely a chance created in either game.

    If we can get back to being solid defensively and not making silly mistakes we'll start to move back up the table.

    I've no doubt that you will be competing for third to fifth place.But if the haemmorrage of support was as much down to the awful football as rhe results, what has changed? Caulfield beat us Cotter beat us.

    No surprise, its how most teams in a relegation fight play.

    Unfortunately its also been the Cork style for the last few years.

    Effective but hard to watch. My hunch is the wider Cork floaters won't support it even if it takes JC2 up the table

    Putting eleven men behind the ball against a team of postmen and delivery men, you can live with it. After all they're in a relegation scrap. Cheating, diving and rolling around the pitch for 70 minutes was the issue.

    It's almost worth going on a shambolic run and then beating Bohs again just for the reaction.

    Beating any part-time outfit at all is a positive given the run we've been on. It's just that most part-time outfits fans don't have a simultaneous meltdown in the aftermath. It's highly amusing.

    Nice to see Cork fans back on the forum. They were missing for a while 😁

    Loving this string of posts.

    What has changed? Nothing. He was in charge for 1 trainings session ffs.

    The drop is support obviously was not as much due to the style as the results. That's a ridiculous assertion. When we were winning, crowds were high. When we were losing, they dropped. That's the nature of it.

    The style of football gets little leeway when results stop, relative to other approaches. But when results are good, the crowds will come regardless.

    You also seem to be ignoring the fact that caulfield beating you was the last game we won. Any football fan not delighted after the first win in 9 has something wrong with them

  12. Thanks From:

    I can't think how an assertion that a poor standard or negative style of football has an impact on crowds, can be classed as "ridiculous".Crowds are not solely determined by teams "winning"
    We have had successful Bohs teams playing unlovely football in the recent past and we were doing well to get two thousand in the gates.We have a team now that will probably win nothing this year but play an entertaining style of football, except when playing Cork, and we are getting 3,000 a game..
    So if Cotter continues the Caulfield style, but with a massed defence, and wins more games than loses, the Cork sporting public will buy into that?
    You'll be back to your recent era of free admission for fans if that continues.

    40000+ in the Aviva to watch Ireland play with jack Charlton managing would tend to prove puke football is irrelevant if the results are good

    If Charltons team were playing there every second week you might have point.

    Pats crowds towards the end of buckos reign, still playing football crowds falling due to continuing bad results ?.
    Are u really suggesting that Ireland isn't a country of bandwagoners regardless of quality of play?

    The football didn't get noticeably worse. The results did. If we were playing like Brazil from the 1970s but losing crowds would still be down.
    Its not entirely down to results, but more results relative to expectations. Our expectations have been very high, so if we aren't competing for the title then we won't get big crowds.
    Bohs have been outperforming expectations, so they get larger crowds than a year or two ago.

    No.Just that the bandwagon gets less and less attractive if the fare is poor, even if the results are OK. Munster got to the European semi final this year withseriously declining support.
    GAA football championship is the ultimate bandwagon, but the awful style of play resulted in pretty rubbish crowds by their standards last year.Dublin attendances , despite going for four in a row bombed last year.Except of course for the final, as it is a matter of social definition and status as to whether you have got a ticket.
    Maybe Cork are the exception and any number of crubeen and drisheen addled locals will pack Turners X if they are winning no matter how awful the football.
