    Getting behind the team. The proverbial 12th man. Nowadays we sing a bit first ten minutes, then mostly silent until the games wrapped up- then if the results gone our way is more gloating than anything else. Backing your team when they need it, rather than giving it Charlie large at the end.

    If it’s not happening already, it won’t be long before TV coverage artificially enhances singing at Premiership grounds IMO. Id say one of the selling points of the EPL internationally is the atmosphere at grounds, compared to Seria A and La Liga, but it’s definately on the wane Theyve probably got a synthesiser with various chants and cheers ( bit like when you watch the Football League highlights show and they edit in crowd noise after a goal)

    He reminds me a bit of the bloke who used to sell lottery tickets in the steps leading up to the Whitewall- it’s not him but looks similar. Edit: Don’t know by Brummie you mean that lot that used to come from Tamworth? ( Kinda near Birmingham) There were some hard bastards in that group.

  5. Not fussed in the slightest. When we were doing well, it was always a case of the winning providing opportunities for a good day out in a final, or promotion which allowed visiting new grounds etc, rather than winning for winnings sake. It’s always been more of a social thing. In the current cycle we’ve triumphed in everything under the sun- can’t believe we’ve won the FA Cup 7 times now- and all we’ve got to show for it is a morgue of a stadium full of miserable fans. Success doesn’t necessarily equate to happy fans, especially as when you win trophy’s you attract new suppporters, who only tag along because they’re in it for reflected glory. Personally I don’t think deciding to follow a team purely because they win stuff is a healthy outlook- as a kid I was surrounded by glory boy Liverpool fans, and most of those were w.....s. We used to be a crap team with brilliant fans. Now we’re a good team, temporarily playing crap, with some of the sh*ttiest fans. Wouldnt give a monkeys if we got relegated. Time to make this club real again.

    There’s a story knocking around re Spurs when they came for the cup game in 82. John Bindon was having a early drink in I think the Adelaide ( probably picking up his protection money at the time), when a mob of Tottenham appeared outside making a nuisance. Apparantly enraged by by their front on his Manor, he went out to confront them. For those that don’t know, he was one of the hardest men in London, who was known for having a knife tucked in his boot. Probably a load of bollox, but the story did the rounds at the time.

    Do Pro clubs still have communial baths these days? What with the pitches this lot use to play on, eleven geezers caked full of mud all sharing the same water, they must have come out filthy as sh*t. You wouldn’t want to wash your hair in it.

    The front row are practically sitting on each other’s laps. No money for a longer bench in those days... ps Eddie Mac looks his usual 50 years old

    Boot on other foot, was at OT late 90’s, when we sung them under the table. ” Sixty Thousand Muppets” rung round the ground. Might have been the fuse that lit Roy Keane and his prawn sandwich supporters rant, as a general rule, supporters accustomed to success don’t sing a lot, those that aren’t or or are having a lean patch do. To the tune of That’s Amore. “ When the ball hits the back of the Old Trafford net, that’s Vialli. When your face is so glum and your names Ferguson, that’s Vialli” Edit: Id be quite happy for us to slide into prolonged mid table obscurity, or get relegated if it resulted getting an atmosphere back at the Bridge, as are many that I know that have followed us through thick and thin.

    I’ve been to 4 home games this year and the atmosphere’s been sh*t on each occasion. We only seem to make a noise when we are winning, or the game is won.

    Didn’t make it there. I was gonna ask if they are Chelsea or Cardiff, but the taches gave it away. Leeds used to like a tache too.

    Talking of pin badges and Rovers away, I’m working at the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, was in the smoking area when I noticed a fella with a poppy CFC pin badge- got chatting away turns out he’s one of the old Hounslow crew. Was telling me he’s had a complaint from the STH that sits next to him, ( new breed supporter objecting to his language) had to write an explanation letter to the club. Went on to say he did get banned, and his name put in the programme after the Rovers game 40 years back mind I used to like the Union Jack pin badges with Chelsea running through them.
