5 Considerations LA Bombers FC and Fans Should Urgently Employ Before, During and After Every Football Match.

By now most of us are aware that the clash of the giants left the Portsmouth L Bombers FC and their fans heartbroken.  Many vented maybe silently so, while others openly gave their verdicts.  As for me, I have been left to ponder whether it is fair to appeal to you the fans to keep supporting the team.

I can assure you, despite the obvious disappointment, undoubtedly i would do it again – asking for that support to grow or strengthen beyond wins and losses.

The reason for my optimism is as simple as:  “Loss does not equate death.”  You see if our mortal beings loses the battle against life, it is triumphed over by the faith in Christ (for those of us who believe), thus eternity is promised to us.  When that time comes, the old mortality will be swept away, and immortality will be the greatest gift for our souls.  Thus, we would enjoy eternal bliss with Christ if we die in friendship with him.

Similarly, a team losing a match 2 to 1 does not equate the death of the team and should not result in the breakdown of its veins and backbone.  After-all, with some extra effort, a return to its vision and mission, the acquisition of the club’s goal will result in the scoring of many more goals.

On that note, I hereby propose five (5) simple, but necessary considerations that LA Bombers FC and their fans should entertain.

1.  Finish as strong or even stronger than you start.  Team, this is clear (I hope), but work on your stamina as well as your personal and collective passions to win.  Fans, keep the momentum of the support up even when things look brown. (That is hard I know, but it is possible).  The point is, every game is unique and should be approached with fresh perspectives and hopeful mannerisms.  Treat each game with it’s own merit.

2.  Find the core of your person, dig deep and you will realize there is a winner in you.  Team: you have won before, so take a collective and individual trip back to those joyous moments.  Ponder: “what have us these victories then?”  Once you find the reasons, bottle them within your heart and replay them in your memory bank.  Watch the winning spirit turn into reality though you all.  Fans: Your realization of the winner in you will propel your desire to make winners of our players.  Your every disposition and verbal expressions will exude just that spirit of winner, plus some.

3.  Pray together with sincerity.  Give the game to the purpose and honor of God.  Maybe for some people this could be laughable, but if we can pray to pass exams after we study hard, why can’t one or a team pray to win a game after the hard work of practicing and training for it?  Players and Fans – we are called to respect, honor and please the talent giver in every facet of our lives.  We are to give the talent and skills back to Him. So before those games try a little personal prayer fans, and a collective and personal prayer Team, that you may give your best, be satisfied with the outcome after the final whistle blows, and respect the team’s efforts despite the disappointments if your heart’s desire was not met.  Meanwhile, prayer goes together with effort.  It changes things. #Pray.

4,  After losing a game, re-calibrate, refocus and like a computer, reboot your system.  Team:  reboot to the values that can bring success to any team.  Those values that are bigger than any level of frustration you may have.  Reprogram your attitude – (state of mind), and watch growth happen.  Fans: you must reboot too.  Reboot to the thing that drives your support of the team.  Your love for the game, your appreciation for the players, your pride in community despite its challenges. So reset, reboot and re-turn to the next football match.

5. Finally, enjoy the moments, enjoy the games, find all the reasons to be joyful during each encounter with an opponent.  Team: remember to laugh and relax even while struggling during a match.  Help each other to maintain a certain sense of confidence, peace and self control.  – Enjoy yourself.   Fans: enjoy the game, but remember to interact with your fellow fans and even those of the opposing team.  Laugh a little, for that might just contribute to the tranquil mindset that our players need on the field.  Remember, Teams and Fans feed off each other.

Conclusively, I encourage all concerned  to employ the above considerations before, during and after all future matches.  LA Bombers FC’s next game is scheduled for (Saturday 9th February at 3:30 PM at the Benjamin’s Park).  #FightToTheLastWhistle Bombers.

5 Considerations LA Enterprise Bombers FC and Fans Should Urgently Employ Before, During and After Every Football Match.

Do note that LA Enterprise  Bombers FC’s next game is scheduled for (Saturday 9th February at 3:30PM at the Benjamin’s Park).  #FightToTheLastWhistle BombersFC.

 

LA Enterprise Bombers FC faces one of its biggest rivals in a game scheduled for Sunday 3rd February at the Benjamin’s Park – Fans are encouraged to turn Up & turn Out – In Large!

Hey Possie, you have been doing tremendously well to turn out to the games of our boys in recent times.  Kudos to all of you who follow the team. If you recall, on Sunday 20th January, the team played South East FC at the Dublanc playing field, a place where some elements of the crowd were not in LA Enterprise Bombers’ corner.

Clearly, they had good reasons right?  Their team and our Bombers now carry the same amount of points into Sunday’s upcoming game.  They hoped our boys would have lost,  but that was to their dismay.  .

Well, the day of reckoning has come, and Bombers’ must now face Dublanc’s team at home in a game being dubbed as “The Clash of the Giants”, while CCCU Dublanc FC must now face our youngsters.  Well if you didn’t know, LABombersFC is a Giant too.  So Yes Possie people, we have reasons to be proud and to stand behind and around them.  51178868_2931387736886858_1324698287818670080_n  Say what we want, Dublanc is close to home too.  Nowwww, we all know that when they move, they move amass. As a matter of fact, some members of the crowd on the 20th vehemently reminded us, that when Dublanc move, is full force.

Welllll Possie, tell me, what are going to do about that? Are we coming out in our large numbers, decking our team’s color with the right mindset and or attitude to cheer Bombers’ on?  Undoubtedly, the opponent will bring it!  Are we going to shock them with our presence, and more-so with our support?   I dare say, we have an obligation to do so.

By the way, one Dublanc supporter accused Possie of not being good supporters eh.  Are we going to prove she and her community wrong, are we going to show them what we are made of, and even more, are we going to stand with and behind our boys regardless come what may?  You see, sometimes we give up on them even before the game ends.  When they feel that negative energy, it frustrates them, and as though left without a choice, they too give up before the game ends.  WE CANNOT AFFORD THAT this coming Sunday.  We must keep the support UP right through.

So, I am calling all and sundry, young and aged, men and women, friends and families (bring the children too) of our boys, and all of Portsmouth, let us go and support Bombers like we Never Did Before.  By the way, Brandon’s bells are too small, they are not loud enough, we need some drums, cowbells, anything that can make a good sound, to push our boys forward until the final whistle echoes.  Don’t be surprised if the opponent (we not calling their name now eh 🙂 ), brings a Lapo Kabwit with them.  Ahhh Possie, we need our Lapo too. Just saying.

Anyway, save all negative comments for chambers on Sunday.  All we want is Support and Encouragement for the young team.  BombersFC – Team Possie – LehWEGo!

Disclaimer:  If you don’t see me, I have good reasons of prior planned engagements, but my prayers and spirit will be with our team – for sure.  IF you see me, well just know I found a way to sto-way from that event.   Wish me luck.  Which ever way, I am supporting BombersFC all the way, for I will be wearing my T-shirt in solidarity with our boys and all of you faithful and new supporters.  Let’s Go Bombers! Let’s GO Possie!

Portsmouth – Let Us Keep The Support for LA Bombers Football Club Alive

We Supporting Bombers

Just a part of the turnout at today’s Football match at Benjamin’s Park

We don’t have to look too far from us, to see what support is all about.  Our neighboring village on the West Coast is super at emptying out their fishing village whenever their team is playing anywhere around Dominica.  While me may not necessarily empty out Possie when Bombers plays, we must empty our homes when the games are on home-ground.  Today, we did a great or fabulous job at that.  As a matter of fact, I felt happy and proud being from Portsmouth, regardless of the result.

While we no doubt came out with the hope of taking home the joy of winning that game, and left with the adverse result, we must not be daunted, nor must we lose focus.  First, LA Bombers FC must not give up the fight, to up their results, and emerge better next time; then we the supporters and community members, must not neglect our own responsibilities to push them forward with our support.

The majority of the team are tender-aged lads, who are still learning the game, learning to gel with each other and the team’s administration, and who are still learning to understand themselves.  Man, is that pressure?  A whole town plus opponents are in one spot watching you.  #Pressure #Pride #Pain too.  Mark you, I am making no excuses for the losses the team has endured lately – that is on them and management, but I am simply asking that all of us hold them dear, and maintain the support in whatever ways possible.

There are a lot of ways to support and we must find our own styles to do so.  With steady parading from the likes of Bombers’ Mascot – Brandon,

 

 

publicity or live game broadcasts from #EmoNews, shouts of joy and exuberance from all of us when a goal is scored, to the fathers like “Peanuts” running across the field at half time to go and give a word of encouragement and support to his son and teammates, and the steady shouting at the players when they mess up – we all show some support.   Continue reading
