Ive spoke to several friends and they all say different opinions on who was the poorest player for us :-(
why do we focus on who done poor rather than those who do good?
the Negativity is rubbish and it gets you nowhere
why do people do this

In life the majority of humans are negative and will always focus more on negative...

When you last went to a restaurant and had a bad experience how many people did you tell? How many social media posts did you make?

When you had a cracking meal did you do the same? 🤔

In order to improve anything, you need to look at strengths and weaknesses, evaluate, reflect. It isn’t just plain negativity, it is what we all do in our lives. I know NW will not ignore weaknesses.

Isnt it positive reactions which get best results ?

It's definitely a Boro/Teesside thing. I only live 40 miles north but the difference is massive.

I do a variety of creative stuff for a living, one of which is being a poet. I'm in my late 50s and spent my life on Teesside hiding the writing. If you liked (or even worse, wrote) poetry where I was from, you were soft, a poof, and so fair game for ridicule. I still have that voice in my head. "What d'yer wanna do that for, are ye daft or summat?!"

Came to live on Tyneside 15 years ago and suddenly people seem to think that making a living by doing what I love is great.

Geordies, bless them, are the opposite of us. It's their blind optimism that leads them to still believe that they're a massive clurb and are on the verge of the Champions League every year. But it also creates a 'can do' culture where something new/different isn't always mocked. On the contrary they say "Aye, why not", whereas we'd just ask "Why?!" with a shake of our heads.

I remember the attitude in school where people equated cleverness with snobbery, anyone intelligent was invariably cut down by attack with insults. I believe it's an attitude which continues.
