We used it at wembley v Northampton I believe


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

Simple solution is make ticket prices accessible to younger people and the working class man who are more likely to generate a bit of noise than the family of four who's father works in the city. But they will never do that.

It's the old prawn sandwich argument isn't it? The marketing of the all-seater game as family entertainment has never worked 100% but it has done enough to rob the game of a lot of the energy and excitement of a male dominated all-standing event.

To the things I learned so well in my youth
I think I'm returning to
Those days when I was young enough to know the truth."

It doesn't say who (if anyone) suggested the idea in the first place. So it's a bit like Buck saying "we won't be slaughtering a goat before the game".

Plastic Premiership.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I believe it was Hartlepool United who first used artificial crowd noises in the early 70's although it was very short lived as the F.A. took a dim view considering it to give them an unfair advantage.

I was at RCD Espanyol against Atletico Madrid way back in 2006 and they used it there. Massive open-air stadium so generating an atmosphere was near enough impossible.
