Lenagan's blast at boo boys
9:30am Tuesday 12th March 2013 in Sport
Oxford United chairman Ian Lenagan has hit out at a small minority of fans, who he claims are threatening to drag the club down.
While praising the majority of supporters – especially the fans who travel away – in his programme notes for United’s game against Barnet at the Kassam Stadium tonight, he has strong words for the boo boys.
He writes: “I am surprised at the consistent vocal negativity of a minority of Oxford United supporters who dominate the airwaves and media, and run the risk of dragging down the spirit of the players, fans, managers, staff and owners alike.
“Of course we are all disappointed not currently to be ‘winners’, but booing the team, continually calling for the sacking of the manager and presistently trying to find ‘things wrong at the club’ is not the way to achieve togetherness, consistency and medium-term success.”
