|" Soccer fans get a hard time in the press and from the public at large.
In fairness womens nike air max 90 wholesale , a lot of that is richly deserved. Anything Piers Morgan says on Twitter, for instance, is worthy of all the scorn a pen can muster.
Come to think of it, Arsenal fans booing Arsene Wenger at a train station and throwing red wine at the Manchester United bench during their recent defeat also deserve to be highlighted for their spoiled brattishness and insufferably borgeouis nature - who the hell drinks merlot at the game?
However cheap nike air max 90 wholesale , when they are not being totally unreasonable or killing one another, fans can be the richest aspect of the beautiful game.
Take the long memory of the Stoke City faithful. Last week they serenaded Wenger and the traveling Gooners with ""Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,"" a song made famous in the other soccer code. Stoke were three goals to the good against the Gunners and they took this opportunity to remind Wenger of his accusations that Stoke were more of a rugby team than a soccer side nike air max 90 cheap wholesale , some four years ago. That's an example of the wit of the terraces at its best.
Also last weekend, fans at Dutch side PEC Zwolle held up a banner featuring the Wealdstone Raider at their Eredivisie game against ADO Den Haag.
The Wealdstone Raider, also known as Gordon Hill, is a social media sensation and fan of semi-professional Wealdstone FC who became famous for being the drunken star of a YouTube video where he taunts a Whitehawk FC fan that his team has ""got no ground"" and ""no fans"" before asking if he ""wants some.""
Hill has turned his embarrassment at his drunken antics to a good cause and has been charging fans 2 pounds ($3.13) for pictures nike air max 90 wholesale china , which he has -given to a local charity. He's also milking his 15 minutes for all it is worth and is the subject of a Daily Mirror campaign to get him to the coveted Christmas No.1 spot.
The Raider has also befriended a fellow super fan from the sharp end of the soccer pyramid, United supporter Andy Tate. Tate gained notoriety for his exasperated verdicts on the Reds under David Moyes on the ""Full Time Devils"" YouTube channel. There are many more like them, at every club. My own favorite fan is Pompey ever--present John Portsmouth Football Club Westwood. Google him.
Whatever the level of -soccer, it's the fans that make the game. Remember that as you're watching from the comfort of your own home this festive -period. Even if they are wearing comedy Santa hats.

MARRAKECH nike air max mens wholesale , Morocco, Dec. 20 (Xinhua) -- Football should be China's priority in sports now, Jerome Valcke, Secretary General of FIFA told Xinhua in an exclusive interview during the Club World Cup here on Friday.
"You had best basketball players in NBA. You can have good team sports nike air max womens wholesale , then football should be your first target now," he said.
Despite a debacle in the semi-final to Bayern Munich which cast a little shadow on Guangzhou Evergrande's African journey, the debut of a Chinese club at the world stage ignited the passion of millions of football fans.
It were long-awaited moments. The last precious memory for Chinese football dated back to 2002, when the national team qualified for the World Cup finals nike air max shoes wholesale china , but it remained the only entry so far.
Now, with the improvement of the professional club, it is the right time and right mood for Chinese football to come back to the world's stage, according to Valcke.
"If you think about the quality and value of Chinese national team nike air max wholesale china , it's a long time that they haven't played at the highest level. China should come back into football," said Valcke.
He also confirmed there was "unofficial interests" from club level to bid for hosting the FIFA's year-ending tournament, but the best idea may be targeting the editions in 2017 and 2018 as the current format is technically "two times in Japan and two times outside Japan" following Morocco's host.
Though Marcello Lippi's side was outclassed 3-0 by the reigning European champions in semi-final, Valcke disagreed with the critics' "poor-performance" comment on Guangzhou and believed Chinese club proved that they deserved to be here.
"They are the champions of Asia cheap nike air max wholesale , which is not a continent of ten countries. There are a number of teams playing in Asian champions league. It's not a poor performance."
"But you were playing against one of the best teams in the world. It maybe look like a training game for Bayern, but it's not such an easy game."
"In the first 25 minutes Guangzhou played quite well. But you are talking about Bayern. It's one of the teams at a period of time impossible to beat. They are quite unique ones."
"This is at the level of the games where they will learn how to play at the highest level. You need to play against these top teams."
The FIFA official showed his understanding of Chinese football by listing "three wishes", but suggesting China should go down to earth from the grassroots.
"I know there are three wishes when you talk about football in China. To make sure you qualify for the World Cup again, then you would organise the World Cup and maybe you win one World Cup one day."
And he advised the football governing body of China to do more for footballer rather than just focus on competitive results.
"It's time for such a major country in the world to look at footballer. Think footballer means to work on development of football at grassroots level."
If China want to achieve their seemingly untouchable wishes cheap nike shoes from china , Valcke's one suggestion is to build a strong U-20 team and organise the event for the players of the age for the long-term project.
"You can also consider organising Under-20 World Cup. Not now, because it was already given. Why not in 2021 or 2023?"
"And just to build a strong team of players under 20. The goal should not just be to win and stay in the tournament as long as you can. You also.
