Sousa Urges Fans To Turn Up The Volume

Sousa Urges Fans To Turn Up The Volume

Swansea City manager Paulo Sousa is urging fans to up the volume at the Liberty Stadium ahead of tomorrow's home game against Newcastle United.

You get the feeling that Sousa isn't completely satisfied with the atmosphere at home games, as he urges fans to make more noise rather more to turn up.

He's happy enough with the numbers, but he believes that the fans can be far more important to our success:

'At home I think our fans can do much more,'

'I'm not talking so much about the quantity of fans at the Liberty — we need to recognise that a few years ago we were getting crowds of 6,000 or 7,000 and now we are averaging 14,000 or 15,000.

'But we want that quality from the fans. We are very happy with what we see away from home.

'Our fans have been fantastic when we've gone away. Whether it's been 150 of them on a very long trip, 1,500 or 3,000, they have always supported us fantastically all through the game.

'But at home we need them to keep supporting the players all the time, not only when we score goals.'


Sousa also told the Evening Post about how the Crystal Palace on Tuesday did their best to get behind their team and urge them on for an equalising goal, he added:

'You can see what other fans do,'

'We need to support our players when things don't go well.

'Fortunately, this season it hasn't been often that things haven't been going well, but we need the fans to be different when those times come.

'You could see the Crystal Palace fans encouraging the players all the time and putting pressure on the referee all the time.

'Fans can make a difference, and we need them to do that for us in every game.'
