But he has done that previously. I can't remember exactly when but he called out lack of fans, next game it was bouncing, I am sure he said support was there. I remember him going over to our away fans and singing with them, he's proud of our loud fans.It was great to hear but it would be also nice t hear him saying it pre-match, it's not as if it's not happened before, same applies when we play the rags.
The difference this time was that our supporters club amplified the whole thing and "took him on", then the media saw the division and went to widen it.
I think pep cares about support but he won't back down when it needs fixing for some games.
