Photo – Fans of bottom placed FC Emmen seal their goal shut with tape to improve defence

Supporters of FC Emmen have a brilliant sense of humor about them considering it is almost certain that they are going to be relegated from the top tier of Dutch football this season.

The Drenthe-based club are currently at the bottom of the Eredivisie points table and have already conceded 41 goals from 16 games so far (Soccerway).

Fed up with their side conceding more than 2.5 goals per game, the official supporters group, also known as Brigata Fanatico, have taken it upon themselves to plug the leak.

Their idea to improve the Dick Lukkien-managed side’s defence – when they meet 3rd placed Vitesse Arnhem on Saturday – was to seal one of the goals at the De Oude Meerdijk (FC Emmen’s stadium) entirely with black tape.
