Create the same sort of atmosphere at home games like we do at the away ones ?

Its does not take a brain surgeon to realise our great support at away games inspires the team to play better,

We should be singing from the off until the end of the game,

If anybody has any good idea's please say,

Then the team might just react and give us a few big wins before the season is over.

Away games often standing so people who want to sing etc are near each other.

Away days are so different to home games, , it's more of an event, a day out, , home games are viewed differently.

And how many of the 1000 from Barnet for example would have been at the game last night?? Yes the Gy based fans would of been and they would of travelled on sat but a lot of the away crowd are exiles. I don't know but totally agree that BP is rather flat apart from a couple of games a season.

Siege mentality Pete, your in the enemies patch and need to shout loud to support the outnumbered, at home you should feel confident that a win is just around the corner so no one bothers too much.

Its not just at BP,the  Barnet crowd were library quiet on Saturday, for real atmosphere at the Park we need to be a league or two higher with at least three to five hundred away supporters to chant to

Got to agree away games are different, all fans are congregated in one stand or area as opposed to spread round further making it easier to get a song going.    Gateshead this season when we won 6-1 the atmosphere was flat as the fans were quite spread out.

However also I think Barnet was exceptional, I have been to many away games this season and not once have I had an atmosphere close to that.  If we want to recreate it the closest we can get is by individuals not to being embarrassed about singing like a maniac.

The thing to get the fans going at BP is the football, nothing more.....nothing less.
It's boring on the pitch, so boring off it

That is only partially true though Acko.  I mean the atmosphere at Barnet was amazing but the football was not the greatest we have played.  We were just up for making the atmosphere incredible regardless of performance.

To many negative people at blundell park expecting it to be shite before it is. They go with that attitude. If we all did what we do away and turn up and sing and be positive has fans I'm certain the home record would be a lot better. We do it away no matter how we are playing so why can't we at home. The atmosphere has been decent a few times this season from the start at blundell park and we have won and played well for example the Barnet game and the flags. So we can do it. Utm

Town fans drunk The Hive dry on Saturday (and presumably did a lot of drinking on trains, minibuses and pubs before even getting there) which I imagine somewhat contributed to last Saturday's atmosphere. I'd hazard a guess that most Town fans don't spend several hours drinking heavily in the run up to a Tuesday night game against Telford. Also Blundell Park is full of miserable old moaning girl privates (you can usually hear a couple of them sat near John Tondeur when he's commentating).

Oh yeah we barely ever get anything approaching a sizable away crowd at home so that doesn't really help matters either. The solution to this is getting promoted back into the league.
