Watford players tweeted their support for Nick Cruwys, the Watford supporter who was attacked following the game with Wolverhampton Wanderers, in unison this evening (Friday night) prior to the home match against Reading tomorrow (Saturday).
The team, who have been in the news for sad reasons this week, showed their humility and respect in what has been a tough week for Nick’s family and all those associated with the club.
Having been at the Wolverhampton game and not seen any trouble, it was a shock to read the reports of what happened post-match. It has united, certainly the Football League, if not British football.
Bournemouth fans will show their support on Saturday too, by taking the lead of the 1881, a Watford fan group, and releasing 44 yellow balloons during their game.
As more arrests are made, It shows that the football in Britain can come together, despite rivalries, and that nothing is more important than life itself, not even football.
This is why I love my club.
