Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Great to read that from Steve Renouf. I think he was my favourite Aussie who played for us (maybe along with Fergie).

That does more for me than all the Tony Adams and Stuart Pearce types.

Good on yer, Steve, and thanks for the memories and for backing us!
