Strange Message From Briatore!

Strange Message From Briatore!

As Gianni Paladini raised his arms and pumped the air, exhorting all fans to 'clap the boys, clap the boys' at the end of the game today - literally turning towards me and making sure that I, and my fellow supporters were properly acknowledging the players' efforts - and extraordinary scene unfolded with Flavio Briatore.

Having been booed by a very small section of the crowd - and that rather half-hearteldy - as he entered the Directors' Box, Flavio Briatore remained behind to join in the standing ovation we gave the players after today's great performance. He, along with Paladini and Alessandro Agag, stood by the edge of the Directors' Box and clapped each and every player and then, as Ainsworth headed for the dressing room, he glanced up at the Box and received his own applause, to which he gave a big smile, a nod and a thumbs up.

Briatore then turned to go and, passing where I was standing, he turned round and said: 'If I now sell the Club you will be in League One!'

Was that because he thought we had been booing him and it was like - see, I do know what I'm doing? Or was it that he WAS going to be selling?!

As it happens, no-one around where I sat was booing - and watching Briatore get very, very excited as we clawed our way back from the jaws of defeat to snatch victory in a most glorious fight-back - for a change this season - I do feel he has really got genuine passion for this Club.

But what an odd comment to make to us?! And particularly after his more gracious behaviour at the Burnley game on Saturday! I am putting this down to the emotion of the last few days - don't know about you, though!

If some people actually showed him the gratitude and respect he deserves he would never need to make a comment like that.

It was a bit of odd timing - maybe he was rattled by the minority of idiots. I would rather he spoke to the supporters face to face rather than childish jibes like this.

Be careful what you wish for, bircham8 - I, for one, do NOT want to go backwards and find ourselves in administration, desperately clinging on to league status - like Luton or Southampton. No thank you!
