Certainly not the case at away games. At home things picked up a bit under Dean Saunders and have carried through into this season. The players playing with pride in the shirt seems to help the crowd engage more. It is definately better than the start of last season.

Our away support is superb for noise. We might only take 150/200 most places but we are very loud and get right behind the team.

Home games is just not worth mentioning really. People behind the goal don't know how to SUPPORT a team - even JTG will agree with me on this. We concede a goal or miss a chance and its '*beep* pathetic' . You always get the 'what are we doing out there' and the 'change it for *beep* sake' even when we are drawing and playing well, and that will never ever change, unfortunately. People have been spoilt the past few seasons with promotions etc and can't face we will never be like that again for some time.

Well said Crawley Dan!!!!

I remember in the Conference days, even if we were loosing we used to have
a good laugh in South Stand by singing funny songs and giving the away players plenty of stick.

Even when the East Stand was just a small terrace we would go the far end of it and create noise. Some people even called a 'mini shelf'... Smile

Used to be a top laugh. Remember the game Fitz broke the drum so went on a whip round using his New York Yankees cap for people to throw money in to replace it. Back when the fan base was united (to an extent), back when the fans supported the team, back when it used to be a laugh. People at home games these days, especially behind the goal wouldn't know how to SUPPORT a team if it smacked them in the face.

There's usually plenty of singing in the middle of the East Stand, but I'm not sure how far the sound carries.

The other week straight after several renditions of 'Red Army' and 'When the Reds go Marching in', the opposition fans sang 'Shall we sing a song for you.'

Maybe they thought we just weren't singing well enough.

Never really understood why our already meagre group of vocal fans have split, half in the terrace and half in the middle of the east stand. I'm afraid to say makes each half sound rather pitiful most of the time.

Oh you know how much I love drums, face paint and big clappy hands at football.
