Leigh Griffith standing in front of the Motherwell singing section waiting to take a free kick ,Well fans abusing him throwing stuff at him ,do these clowns really think it will bother him ?
It did within a minute he scored.
If you can't go to a football game without screaming abuse and throwing stuff at players ,I'm afraid it's not for you.

Delighted Griffiths is back scoring goals with what he has been through. Hopefully he’ll go from strength to strength and play a big part with Scotland in future. I really don’t get these idiots who think it’s ok to throw things at players.

Football fans aren't the brightest, and certainly aren't thick skinned. We saw that at Palmerston on Saturday where the young boys were chanting "Stephen Dobbie, yer a w*****, yer a w*****" despite his neither saying nor doing anything in an remember to warrant that. Of course he then played a part in the opening goal (and later scored himself) and when going back to half way after the first goal put his finger to his lips in the classic "Shhhh" gesture at which some if those self same fans were going crazy.

While some fans are undoubtedly complete @r$3h0l3$, we both know that they invariably target opposing players whom they perceive to be the greatest threat to their team, so it's a classic example of a backhanded compliment, even if the players on the receiving end could happily live without it.

Targeting a perceived threat in the opposing team never ends well ,a couple of seasons ago when Scott McDonald was getting it ,almost guaranteed him to score,pretty sure Stevie Crawford got terrible abuse when he came back with Aberdeen ,think he scored that day

Right on the money.

John Martin the Airdrie keeper would play a blinder against the Pars whenever he was subjected to abuse - he relished it !!!

When it comes to highly motivated/competitive individuals that are talented in almost any sport, it tends to be when they're subjected to 'scrutiny' by opposition fans they want to go out and prove them wrong which can lead to an improvement in their performance. Nicky Clark is probably one of the best examples, when he plays against us he tends to be the most influential player on the park whilst receiving abuse from our fans. Maybe we should try cheering him next time to see if it has the opposite effect 😂

Stevie Fulton played a number of blinders against us in the late 90s as pars fans were abusing him for being a bit tubby.

Perhaps Nicky Clark plays well against us because he’s a good player - something which too many of our support chose not to see. Interesting that Dundee United’s form has dipped since he’s got injured.

I wasn't watching games during that point but it certainly seemed to be a recurring train of thought with other fanbases, he seemed to be despised.

He was especially despised in the mining communities.

QOS scored literally one minute after a section of our support give it the full rendition of “Stephen Dobbie takes it up the ar5e”. Like instant karma.

Also disappointing was the rendition of “oh the hibees are gay” when Nisbet came on.

Unfortunately there is just a section of every support that can’t help themselves.

John Martin was a scab during the miners' strike. I believe he drove delivery lorries across picket lines?

That's why he was despised and not just by Pars fans either.

The best example of this was the Scott Mcdonald one at eep. When he scored he ran to celebrate right if from of the fans who were signing about him taking it up the rear. Was a classic case of if you can't take it when it bites you in the bottom don't give it out. I remember saying to people around me he would score after that was chanted. If only I had put a bet on it......

c'mon the pars

No doubt Clark is a great player especially at this level. I never understood why he got so much hate considering he carried much of our attack throughout his time with us. His link up play has really improved also allowing shankland to shine in that team. Would take him back in a heartbeat

Whatever happened to StickyPar who seemed to be convinced Nicky Clark was the devil incarnate? Did he maybe follow him to Tannadice? I wonder if there's a 'StickyArab' on the Dundee United forum?

Indeed rossmcno1, that was sad to hear. I called them out over it and told them to grow up, but I just got some verbal back and someone asked "are we in the Main Stand at East End or something?"

Fans who dish out abuse to opposing players usually have very thin skins when any criticism is directed their way.

That’s a shame Kelty. Illustrates they don’t think they’re doing anything wrong, even though high chance one of their own group is gay.

Good on you for calling it out though, and hope you and other pars fans continue to do so til they get the message and move on from it.

Kangaroo court as usual re: John Martin.

John Martin was on the picket line and he and his wife helped with the union centres.

That was until the mining union withdrew their financial support for the Martin family as they deemed his part-time wage (which was just enough to get him to training and match days) as a keeper sufficient income.

After that Martin had no option but to scab.

But then again, why let the facts get in the way of a good hanging eh!

I was not aware of that fact, fair play to him in that case, sounds like the Union gave him no other option to look after his family. He used to get a very hard time of it from the Pars fans, but always seemed to thrive under those conditions

Try telling that to the rest of the miners who stayed out despite facing similar choices.

In my younger days I used to say things to opposition players. Thankfully I have now stopped. Old age has brought wisdom.
