Yay! Football is back! Kick off against Middlesborough at home. Tough opening match but we shall see what happens!

ha, don't think hes realised, however Flawless in relation to your comment about the Olympics rubbing off on football there was an interesting discussion on Twitter between Micheal Owen and Joey Barton about how the two of them differ its a good read nevertheless

Roy Hodgson also commented in his press conference about the difference in crowd atmosphere between the Community Shield, nothing more than a glorified friendly anyway, and the Olympic events.

Football crowds are shocking to be honest, total disgraces in general.

I completely disagree with the last part of that statement, I regularly attend football games and 99% of the time no problems its just a small number of small minded people ruining it for everyone else. Similar things which happen in football crowds happened at the Olympics one notable one was a bottle being thrown in one of the running events. just saying.

Don't get me wrong, I don't completely blame crowds for the wrongs of football atmosphere - I go to 10-15 games a year myself, admittedly at Conference level, and rarely see any problems.

It is, as you say, an all-too-often occurence of a few hundred idiots a week giving the other many thousands a bad name. I feel the players themselves can take their proportion of the blame too, as even at low level football the abuse of each other and the referee is (nearly always) appalling, and the crowd will imitate that.

I would like to see a better attitude all around at games, as Roy Hodgson was advocating this morning, to bring football atmosphere to more of a festival event similar to what we saw two weeks ago.

Yes i agree with that, if they were to correctly implement known technologies into the game and replicate say rugby for example, they say it will slow down the game? by a few milliseconds maybe yes but the huge effects it would have i.e less abuse towards officials from the crowds and less 'big' decisions going the wrong way. I for one believe technology needs to be used day in day out for the good of the game and a lot of issues would be instantly resolved.
