Indeed fans attachment to their teams means that they have an overwhelming desire for information about the team which they support and to have some form of control over their teams’ performances on the pitch.

This unsatisfied desire in Western culture is likely to provoke aggression, dissatisfaction, destruction and alienation. The desire for recognition and confirmation drives toward negativity and destruction.

But the mother absents herself – often by necessity – from the child.
