A goal does not need a theme tune
I left the game on Saturday disappointed and a little bit cross. Cardiff's late collapse was not the cause, these things happen and it's been on the cards for a few weeks if truth be told. The source of my sorrow was Joe Mason's opening goal.
A well-worked effort, with Andrew Taylor crossing, Don Cowie heading across goal for Mason to prod home. With Kevin McNaughton, Aron Gunnarsson and Craig Conway also involved, it was the type of goal we have come to expect under Malky Mackay's stewardship.
What I was not prepared for was the musical accompaniment that greeted the strike.
Goals do not require a theme tune, fans do not need a reminder of when and how to celebrate. Supporting your team in the flesh is an instinctive and emotive experience, the ebb and flow of the game dictates your mood and reaction. It's not the NBA, we don't need music to sustain our interest or prompt involvement.
You can see where I'm going with this. Suffice to say I think it's cheap and nasty, what I'm interested in is whether I'm on my own or whether my opinion is that of the majority.
If you're indifferent to this tacky new amendment and think that there is more pressing concerns to get worked up about then fair enough. But if you feel as strongly as I do, you must stand up and be counted and make your feelings known, as it's an issue that we can influence.
Otherwise it's a slippery slope and before you know it Ali will be playing an organ and we'll all be chanting 'DEFENCE!' when the opposition are on the attack!
