Unflinching support...

 Most often, when i visit Soccer portals, I'm intrigued on how most footie managers showcase utmost backup to their players even when they don't deserve such support.

Hear Kenny Dalglish's defense of striker, Andy Carroll's season performances - "I don't think self-belief is a problem for Andy Carroll, I don't see why it should be,"  

Andre Villas-Boas of Chelsea FC had nothing but praise for Fernando Torres, despite watching the £50m man fluff his first Premier League start for almost two months in the home derby against Fulham. Even when it seemed the spaniard did little or nothing to contribute in the game, AVB goes on to say "He's been working well and he had an impact in the game. He worked well for the team, assisted Mata for his goal, and showed the level of commitment he has shown in training."   Villas-Boas pointed out the Spaniard had set up Juan Mata's opener, neglecting to mention that was only because he(Torres) had miscontrolled Ashley Cole's cross.

OR was it Arsene Wenger's refusal to sell Pascal Cygan or Manu Adebayor when it seemed these fellas just couldn't fit into the team.

Sometimes i wonder if we could just show a teeny tiny bit of this kind of support displayed by these managers to that spouse who just nags continously, to that sibling who doesn't seem to just get it right, to that friend who hasn't failed to disappoint you...the list is endless, but i'm sure you get my point.

Hey, I know some people might never justify your support but that shouldn't be your worry...the thing is you gave him/her a second chance maybe a tenth chance to get it together

With this sort of disposition you just might save a life, career, marriage, relationship...who knows!

Happy Holidays!
