Port Vale footballer - must spend some time on here

First rule of football I tell any young player is don’t read, look or listen to any fans websites, forums or chats!!! Not only are the majority clueless but if you listen they can kill a career! 🖕🏻🖕🏻

He seems to forget that the majority of these clueless fans pay his wages. I don’t agree with the hate posted online but fans are allowed an opinion on the product they have paid to see as long as it is civil. They are allowed to say when a player has had a shit game or has been underperforming as long as it isn’t a personal attack.

He’s not saying they’re not allowed an opinion or to say whatever they like though, is he? Just advising young players not to listen to it.

Pre internet you’d think a player should listen to the opinions of his manager and coaches, not walk into a pub and ask, ‘did I do ok? Do you like me? Am I the worst player you’ve ever seen wearing the shirt even though you liked me last week? Know anywhere to go for a good balti in New York?’

I think that's his point, that some fans may go OTT online quite often

I would hate to think any of our fans read some of the diatribe poured out on here against them, totally de motivating!

Remember the season Vile were relegated one home game they booed 7 of the 11 starters!
And they think thats supporting!

I think it's a good rule for anybody dealing with the internet these days. Too many youngster derive their self worth from strangers on the internet and those same stranger can absolutely ruin you just for 'bants'. The internet is like crack cocaine, to be used carefully and in moderation. ;-)

If I was a professional footballer I wouldnt be on any form of social media, so can see where he is coming from especially after seeing a lot of the dross that is posted on the vast majority of Birmingham City fans pages on Facebook.

I heard Robbie Savage talking about the fact that when he used to play he regularly posted himself as if he were a fan saying what a good game Savage had had - even when he knew he hadn't.

Could this mean John Smullen is actually David Stockdale ? 😛
