Chuckle Brother I'm not trolling. I rarely post. And certainly (unlike some) don't generally post for the sake of it.

I'm simply saying at the game yesterday from where I was sitting there was no discernible noise coming from that half of the South Stand.

Maybe it was drowned out by the away fans.

I look forward to hopefully being proved wrong on Saturday.

Where were you sat?

Because there was definitely noise and it can't have been drowned out by the away fans who barely made a peep outside 5 minutes after scoring and the occasional corner.


I remember for years people saying Y25/6 didn't make any noise when they sung half the game away.

The accoustics of the stadium are terrible.


Hahaha acoustics.

Calm down Fagin, no doubt you and all your boys will be back there against Ipswich bringing the club into disrepute again.

Zip I thought 1871 supporters were better today. The support around the ground was also improved. It was quiet for 10/15 minutes after Brizzle made it 1-1 but thereafter it was decent.


Y256 put in a showing a few times today and I even heard the North and West once or twice!

South was short of critical mass of people still, but another good day given numbers, just like Hull. There was at least a low level of noise pretty much constantly, and a decent level plenty of the time. It would help if those who start chants could either use ones people actually know, or get some better diction. I have no idea what they words were to at least one of the chants so can't join in with it.

It took me months to work out all the words to Bacuna's song, people sing it so slurred.

OOOeeeOOOO Leandro Bacuna
OOOeeeOOOO Eyfyurgle yurgle veeya
He never gives the ball away.

The one I'm currently struggling with has something to do with "Steve Coppell was the gaffer", completely slurred line, something something Leicester, completely slurred line etc.


This it? Not sung loud enough atm to work out what it is from where I am in Y24. Could just about make out Allez Allez Allez.

We conquered all of England,
We thought we’d never stop,
We’ve got the oxf*rd record,
& It took us to the top!

Steve Coppell as our Gafa,
Thought Doyle’d never miss,
And when he scored at Leicester,
We all went on the piss!

If there was that much noise it wouldn't make any difference where in the stadium I was sat.

But for the record Y23.

Would like to know, exactly, how they are bringing the club into disrepute. Especially when they have the backing of the club itself.

You'd think they might work out the problem when that song is always quiet and anything like Super Reading, Molly Malone, Skies are Grey, People always say to me, Yakou Meite, Leandro Bacuna are all five times as loud with three times as many people joining in.

Still, yet another enjoyable game with C1871. No moaning minnies. Unreserved 'seating'. Standing all game no problems. Singing most the time. Top stuff. Much better experience than I've ever had in Y24/5/6 and it'd be even better with another couple of hundred people.

Please please please don’t create and distribute chant lyric sheets. That’s probably the only way you could get more embarrassing from this point forward

It would really sum Club 1871 up nicely though. Ian is probably off to the printers as we speak.

Peered over a few times from Y25 today. I understand the intend and i understand the need for the idea but why on earth are you essentially dividing off from the rest of your vocal supporters?
As far i was aware it was meant to be a place for a constant atmosphere supporting the players but from my view today it was just a group of people stood up barely even applauding let alone singing? If anything it's damaged the atmosphere!

Twitter conversation between the organiser and someone criticising the project. Organiser said he was having a bad day and basically said he didn't want to be there any more.

For the first time on Saturday I noticed that supporters in this section were goading the Ipswich fans when we scored and directing songs at them. That going against their initial objectives?

PS - I am all for it and good to have our fans behind that goal.

Bits and pieces of that on and off for a while. Also some Clement out and anti Gourlay stuff from about half a dozen lads.

Personally, I don't think there's a problem interacting with the away fans a bit, even if your stated goal is to stay focused on the team. It's when it starts becoming solely about the away fans and deliberately setting out to goad them - rather than just occasionally responding, and focusing on the game for the most part. It should go without saying (and I'm sure you don't need to be told this) that any sizeable group of people who don't all know each other will mean there are people with differing levels of commitment to a stated goal.

I mean the South is supposed to be about trying to back the team vocally and positively all game. Some people there barely make a peep though. And I try, but I certainly can't keep it up all game, and I struggle to keep going when not many other people are joining in either, neither am I a chant starter.

Selling 1/2 season tickets in the area, so I guess they are here to stay.

I am for it FTR. Me and my uncle were discussing it on Saturday and we came to the conclusion that while it is a great imitative and I want it to succeed, it isn't for us.

1) he is nearing 60 and doesn't want to stand for the whole game & I don't want to move my position in the ground away from him & 2) we don't really like being behind the goal, much prefer to be on the side.

I might purchase a 1/2 season ticket there if they are selling them. It would be good to join in the atmousphere
