Couldnt agree more you do get the impression some people once they have given an opinion on a player or manager for that matter have to seek some sort of confirmation that their opinion is right so when said player makes a mistake then that is the opportunity to pile in even though they say nothing when the same player is playing well week in and week out. I think it is the nature of forums. Case in point being the manager some were reluctant to give him praise yet after the derby absolutely piled in for all their worth to validate that they were right all along.
As you say these are the good times with the best position in years, the best support since before almost all of us were born and with the potential to get better given good recruitment. Can honestly say this is consistently been the best season ever IMO.
