Soccer fans must support home side

The demise of Sporting Fingal FC must have made sad reading for genuine soccer supporters in this country who bemoan the fact that the game has hit rocky times at local level.
Gone are the days when League of Ireland games attracted crowds of 25,000 to venues like Dalymount Park and the long-gone Glenmalure Park on Sunday afternoons.
Instead, we have a situation where so many people cross the water on a regular basis in slavish pursuit of foreign teams with little Irish identity.
