Can we start cheering for goal kicks?

General ECS talk.

I think it would be great if we could start the trend of doing a build-up and "hey" for Frei when taking goal kicks, similar to the corner-kick cheer. One of the most annoying things in the world to me is the "punto" chant and if we could find a way to cover that up it would be a positive thing. At the very least it would help our keeper block out negativity.
I'm aware that we don't hear "punto" very often. Trying to drown that out would be just one of the positives.

Typically you see chants for goal kicks reserved for opposing keepers but if there was a big enough demand to want to do so I think it'd be cool but just a friendly fyi its "puto". Punto is point in Spanish.

Cheers.

I'm meh on goalkick chants in general to be honest. (Also, "puto" can die in a fucking fire")

Only one I've seen recently that I liked was when Vancouver had Joe Cannon in goal, they used to so "ssssssssssss, boom!", which was actually quite clever. =)

There are times when I like doing chants/songs to go along with what is happening on the field. Goal kicks are not really one of those times.

Good on you for speaking up with a suggestion... however, not a fan of this one.
