Tree Hugger posts :

Folks will shout and sing if they feel inspired to do so for whatever reason, whether it’s the pace of play, the silky skills, or because they’re hammered.

have you stumbled across the Holy Grail of singing there TH ?
tickled me.

Reckon creating a singing section a good idea. Maybe one in the South Stand, one in the east stand. Can’t see many takers or enough takers for the north. Maybe a pound or two off for those who wish to take part. Anything to get a better atmosphere at the moment.

Not so easy in East? Mostly season ticket holders wed to their seats?

South a natural, really.

After asking my original question 'where were our fans today?' and reading posts on this and other threads I now know where they were.

On strike!!

Absolutely ridiculous when they are not on strike away from home supporting the same club.

Anyway, all this talk about trying to get the South stand back is good because we're all on the same side and we love their noise and passion but we really shouldn't need them.

There are so many more of us in East & North combined.

Why do we have to need them?

Why can't we prove to those there that think we'll deteriorate without them that we won't?

Why can't we make a difference to our team on our own?

The South stand don't actually run our club (although they probably think they do due to attendances lately).

We have to find a way to make our other two stands create such a great atmosphere that the South feel they have to join in with us!

Whether it's a singing section or those who want to make some noise getting together in the Green Man beforehand to discuss tactics.

Why rely on a minority when we have a majority who could (with a little training) do so much better?!

I thought there was a lot more noise than usual from the East stand last Saturday. That despite lower numbers and poor display.

The few in North also had a go from time-to-time with their Green Army chant.

South, not a peep all afternoon. Reminded me of a cemetery.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
