Exciting football is getting bums on, and then off, seats...
Keith Curle is calling for supporters to turn out in force for this week’s two big home fixtures.
Notts face fifth-placed Stevenage tonight, before taking on npower League 1 leaders Tranmere Rovers on Saturday afternoon.
The Magpies are currently second in the division, having gone six league matches without defeat, and Curle feels that that fans are really getting on board with what the team is trying to achieve.
“It’s not only because of where we are in the league but because we’re trying to play football – I think we’re exciting people,” said Curle on Magpie Player.
“One of the hardest things we’ve had to do is educate the players first of all and then the pleasing thing is how quickly the crowd have bought into how we’re trying to play.
“I know there were a few groans in the first couple of games when we were just keeping possession and not really attacking, not trying to hurt teams.
“Now the crowd are starting to understand what we’re trying to do and how we’re trying to maneuver teams around to try and create the openings.
“They know now that when we’re going into the final third, bums are coming off seats because something’s going to happen.
“There’s a bandwagon out there that’s gathering momentum, it’s being led by the chairman’s wife and the chief executive.
“It makes their job a hell of a lot easier, because the more bums we get on seats here, the easier it is for them to give me the tools of the trade that I need to try and make the football club successful.
“It’s part of the process of making the club successful, that is the more people that we have coming through the turnstiles, the easier it is for the club to operate.”
