Atmosphere at the Bridge today

I think that quite simply I have to say to man united: where's your famous atmosphere? Coz honestly I will say that united uasually are good and they had good support back in October was it? But today we,Chelsea, had brilliant support!

I actually jibbed into the west lower as touts were wanting one and half for a ticket which is ridiculous but anyway I thought we had great support especially in the second half and brilliant banter most towards Rio. At one point united were so quiet that the boys in the MH were singing 'we forgot that you were here' and I find that brilliant as that's what the away fans Usually sing! I went to the first game at old Trafford last month and our fans were brilliant compared to the silent united fans. what do you think?

I think I like. Sometimes people moan about our atmosphere on here but mikes jammed up behind the hoardings don't help from the armchair viewer point of view.  I think mikes should hang from the MH roof for maxo amplification...

Atmosphere was much better than it usually is, and decent for a lunchtime kick-off. Lunchtime games are usually very dull and hungover. But we created quite a bit of noise for a while in the second half.

 

United's support was very poor considering they usually have a decent away voice. I give them the benefit of the doubt being an early kick off haha

I thought the atmosphere was brilliant yesterday. Far better than normal, saying that I was MHL gate 13 and it's always generally great in the middle.

Talking of which, if anybody finds my voice would they kindly return to me. Last heard around 2.30pm outside Stamford Bridge. I sound a bit like a walrus today. Some would say I look like one after yesterday as well.

At the end of the day the ATMOSPHERE is based (if you go to the match) on where one sits and the acoustics of the differing ends...Ive read and spoken to a dozen blues who attended the match......It was said to be wonderfull atmosphere to how bloody quiet...Take your pick

Seems I posted this in the wrong thread!

 

Re the atmosphere:

 

Couldnt get my normal seats in the deafening Wet Stand Lower so ended up in the Wet Stand Upper - right on the half way line - great view!

 

Was sat next to some big mouthy bar steward who was happy to give my nine year son a lesson in swearing - fine with that - saves me a job

 

On the other side was an oriental family on a day out

 

Point is: the mouthy twat spent most of the match (including the goal) pratting around with his phone, on the other side of me there was no noise from the orientals - that's the way it is

 

The Mankers on the other hand were very noisy - especially just before half time when they were deafening. The goal damped them down a lot, but away fans - particularly those from a big club will always make a lot of noise for a long time

 

Our support was sporadic - some corkers re Rio, England and Qatar but only really came together when we scored

 

Bring back standing and lower ticket prices and we might get better home support - but lets face it - that aint gonna happen!

we too were in the west upper front row by the half way line and apart from the bloke sat next to me with the loudest most artificial clapping I have ever had the misfortune to hear( my ear is still ringing today from it)  it was largely made up of Foreign Tourists and girlfriends who look disinterested in being there. The atmosphere is poor up there but the view is great and having rushed back from Southampton on Monday Morning ( spent the weekend there for the Game) I was looking forward to a seat that I strangely could sit in for the match  ( my seat is in MHL block 9 ).

 

What got me was the two Russian gentlemen behind me. Just before the goal someone came back slightly late from half time and we all got up to let them past ( being the W Upper - no one stands up at any point) Ba scored just as half the front row stood up to let them past and everyone else behind including us missed the one and only goal. at which point very irate Russian who sounded like Count Dracula from Sesame Street shouted out to the poor girl " You Bitch , why can't you take your seats before game restarts" . Now this is not the opera or the opening night on Drury Lane - its a football match for god's sake . This is why despite the fantastic views and the padded seats and the heaters that I couldn't sit in that stand full time. There is no passion, no camaraderie and no bloody support.

Thought it was pretty flat yesterday, and also weirdly quiet against Sunderland. Strange given how important these games are now. A lot of it is probably down to how many games we've had recently, with our more vocal support focusing on the aways/being more selective.

 

How was the noise at the cup semi? I ended up having to miss that one.

I was very disappointed with atmosphere on sunday...until frank came on it was like nothing was at stake and we all know we're in do or dire situation at the moment...wonder why many of these people bother to turn up if they don't want to support the team...forget the fsw bs, we have a top four place to secure

Myself and a few others tried to get a few songs going in the shed lower but everyone else just didn't seem interested in joining in.

After a while just gave up and at one point one guy was complaining about me getting up on my feet to clap when we where given a corner.

What really pissed me off was the clown who spent most of the match texting or talking on his mobile phone beside me. Had to bite my lip to stop me from telling him to fcuk off.

We know how loud the Bridge could be and should be.......We have a lot of good supporters that unfortunately are spread about the ground who do try getting things rocking.....Sometimes it happens but too often its flat.....There seems to be , as we are all aware, too many guys n girls that manage to get tickets purely to watch the match and make no noise...Too many tourists that wouldnt know how to make noise unless it made em money...There are more family types.....there are more people going that go on their own and are shy to sing....This is why we are NOT one big chelsea family at all...Mostly bunches of very very different types ...Too many who dont integrate with each other....I sort of envy, well, i suppose every other club in the prem at their grounds that often sound so loud...I sometimes wonder if were the quietest in england at home..7 out of ten times were ok away from home...Also there is deffo a problem with accoustics at the Bridge from every part of the ground EXCEPT the away bit that always sounds good....Ive been to matches and spoken to others later....Ive been in a MHS that from where i was sitting sounded loud as hell...The guys elsewhere could hardly hear a thing.....I hate it with a passion...We should, with the team we have , have a noise factor at the Bridge that scares the oppo...(but) no. We are derided and laughed at....To be honest our players must in some way be affected by hearing (poss) more from away fans...I get embarassed hearing individual voices echoing a zigga zagga and a sad oi oi oi following....Again i praise the many that are always trying to vocally support their boys.....I spit on the head of the many monkey boys that quietly sit, picking their noses, and making it big biz to tell their own fans off for this n that...(and i am aware it is their right)..I sometimes weep to see this sh*t ...

My question is should we be doing something about it? Is there anything we can do about it?  It's not like there isn't a good group of Chelsea who do sing. You only have to look at our away support, most notably at Leeds, to see that we do have a good singing contingent at the club.

 

I remember there was some sort of initiative to get a proper singing section going at the bridge, but I think it ended up petering out. Surely there comes a point where those that love the club actually get something sorted out, instead of just consigning the atmosphere at SB to the history books.

It's no different to Old Trafford or the Emirates for example though.

On a good day against the right team it can rock but for the average game against mid table opposition it tends to be flat, especially if the crowd aren't 'given' something to get excited about. It is the price of success to some extent I would say, higher prices driving the older fans away and replacing them with day trippers and tourists.

Singing is too tiring.

 

I prefer to watch the game intently and shout out "Come on Chelsea!" at 10 minute intervals.

Mike, the way round it is to get a reputation like Stoke where a placebo effect is encountered and those you name aren't inhibited to join in - will take effort from all of us - but sitting down definitely doesn't help
