Don't know where else to put this, but anybody know Swedish better than me (I can translate words but miss context frequently). Landy seems to be a little upset at what we call bandwagon fans.

Lider med mina kompisar i Dif, oerhört jobb ni gjort hela året. Att kämpa sig tillbaka från träsket nästan in i kvalserien är imponerande.

Men däremot att så kallade "supportrar" tar kontakt med spelare och fullkomligt sågar dom via social media är så pinsamt.

Kalla dig inte en supporter om du bara är där i medgång.

Yeah I speak fluent Swedish. This is what he was saying:

Suffering with my friends in Dif, immensely job you have done all year. To fight back from the swamp almost into qualification matches is impressive.

But that so-called "supporters" make contact with players and totally saw them through social media is so embarrassing.

Call you are not a supporter if you are only there for prosperity.

This is where I think context and slang are throwing it off. Trying to gather what he is really saying. My interpretation (my Swedish is really bad): It has been a struggle for the team. Fighting back into playoff position was an accomplishment. The way that 'fans' contact players through social media is embarrassing. You are not a fan if you are only going to support the team in the good times.

Why not just tweet that in English?

In his first tweet, what does "Dif" mean? I thought he might have been talking about the Swedish team he played for during the lockout.

Yes, Dif = Djurgården IF, the team he played for in Sweden.

I do agree that fans need to learn they aren't here to be pampered to individually, if that's something he sort of alluded to.

I agree with Landy on several points but not the main one!

Fans should support their team through good and bad times!
Fans should not insult/contact players directly especially since it's a team game, wins and losses come from a team effort.

However fans do not have to put up with constant mediocrity! The team brings us entertainment, if they no longer provide the entertainment we are satisfied with we should be allowed to voice our opinion on it, as we often do especially on the boards.

Djurgården were relegated to the tier below SEL last season and they missed the chance to be promoted this year. I can imagine some fans being upset about it.

There is a slightly different supporter culture here. For example if a team is struggling and the players are our partying, it's not uncommon for fans to confront and intimidate the player since they feel it's an insult to the club to be out partying when you're not performing. It's hooligan logic.
