Too many old fuckers or day trippers at St James...so boring.

 

To be fair there is an old boy towards the back of the gallowgate in block s (wears a flat cap) he always gets up and starts the whistles to start "geordies clap clap"

 

They are still there, but most people sit and give youfunny glances for attempting to sing.

Happens all the time in cinemas now like. Not so much the independent ones, but if you go to The Gate you'll quite often see people on their phones throughout, or being unable to keep their stupid mouths closed. 

Yeah, it is incredible.  The worst are always your comic book big blockbuster efforts - constant fucking waffle from knackers.  I've heard less patter during the films when I listen to directors commentaries - and at least they have both been asked to do it and know what they're on about.  I will admit I get irritated by the smallest sound in a cinema - it ruins the immersion and the willing suspension of disbelief for me; but they are concepts that are beyond half the twats who fill cinema audiences it seems.

Next week will be a brilliant atmosphere like (as long as we don't lose 3-0 tonight lol) then if we get through to the final West Ham will be a celebratory atmosphere.

 

Then Liverpool after that.

 

Next 3 home games should be bouncing.

On the topic of singing and chanting etc. cananyone remember this from our last semi final in 2005...?

 

"Best song of the day: A simply spine-chilling second half rendition of the Blaydon Races that had more than one or two people sniffing and clearing non-existent dust from their eyes..... "

 

https://www.nufc.com/html/2004-05html/2005-04-17manutd-n-fasf.html

 

 

Was there we completely outsung them all game and after defeat, not a surprise.

 

Remember some toon fan in a pub before hand having nee clothes on.

 

Was after the Sporting Lisbon loss wasn't it? Shit week that.

There’s definitely a lack of variety with the current song book like and a fair few classics no longer get much of an airing. 

Tonight at a cup semi final we are singing 'up the premier league we go....' feels a bit cringe. Expect higher standards from us no?🫣

I'd put the bevvies down, without wanting to sound like a patronising wanker. :lol:

 

Those who didn't give their ST up before the takeover were in my eyes more or less gambling on the current state of affairs eventually happening: sticking it out until Ashley was going. Some saw that as wrong but I never did tbph, the debate on matchgoing fans on here and in general was tedious as fuck imo and has been since it started around 2014ish. They're no less or more Newcastle fans than me or anyone else. They stuck it out and are reaping the rewards for doing so. Same with those with a high amount of loyalty points. So fair enough to them.

 

On top of that the atmospheres at games have been poor for years bar a select few games under Benitez and now Howe. Small adjustments need to be made in regards to singing section(s), safe standing, size of the family enclosure and it'll be class again. Who has STs now has no bearing on that.

My own personal circumstances are I more or less had to chuck my ST, due to no longer qualifying as a junior (haha), the price hikes and the logistics of getting games whilst being at uni down in Derby. On top of that Benitez left and Bruce came in so there was extra incentive to chuck it. But regardless, my ST went from ~£220 for the 2018-19 season to £811 for 2019-20 and I could not justify paying that whilst a student who was to be moving and living down in the East Midlands given travel costs et cetera. I wish never chucked it now obviously but no one could've foreseen this wave of positivity.

@Herony'all been in contact with Wembley at all yet? Not sure of the rules/logistics or anything but a massive display for the final would be absolutely incredible.

I’d imagine they’ll wait until we’ve actually reached the final…

Sunderland tried something similar but weren’t allowed due to fire regs or something

Would they not want to get the gears going as soon as possible? I imagine it'll be a big ask, logistically, to get a lot of the stuff down there. Even just a cursory conversation about the possibility might be worth having, just opening the dialogue with the powers that be at Wembley.

Didn’t theirs get rejected last minute because they hadn’t got fire regs sorted or something like that?

If they have they would be wise to keep it very low key. The world and his wife would be ready to jump all over the ‘arrogance’

Yeah, plans are afoot but obviously not getting too far into it for another 5 days. As everyone else is planning, the group are planning around having to be down there sooner too though.

Think that was a bit of bollocks tbh, don't think they planned properly or with the relevant people
