Support + atmosphere

Woeful. Football fans cheering balance sheets like they personally benefit from it.

 

Used to think they were a sound fanbase too. Had one twat on the train home on Saturday constantly telling me how we deserved nothing from that game. The bellend just would not shut up.

So did I and tbf they were... now I can't stand them. Full of arrogance as if they haven't paid to win everything. The away games are worse because wherever I am I always end up near their fans and they spend half the game staring at our end trying to wind us up.

They've become everything they ever hated in United- money club, entitled fans, silent home atmosphere. United still turn out decent away ends though.

To be fair I thought there home atmosphere was decent volume wise. There’s and Man United are the best I’ve seen.

Agreed, United and city by far the best home atmospheres in this division. Probably followed by wolves.
 

Liverpool’s a myth and the other big clubs awful.

The Etihad after that Kompany strike was loud, but every other time I’ve been there or Old Trafford, it’s been as placid as everywhere else! Wolves I agree has had a great atmosphere the past couple of league games I’ve been to there. Everton is the biggest disappointment atmosphere wise. Only volume I’ve heard there was when Baines hit the equaliser in the quarter final in December.

Yeah same, when they first had the success I saw their fans as grounded people who had gone through the harder times and appreciated what had happened to them.

 

Time, continued success, corruption of the mind by money and I'd argue a bit of society has turned many into paranoid, conspiracy-laden idiots continually hounding journalists on social media when their ban is mentioned. Chanting weird stuff and buying completely and unquestionably into the cult of the club's ownership and what they say.

 

It's quite sad, really but it's also a cautionary tale many fans should learn from (but absolutely won't).

Enough making attempts to create a sing song in the Waterfront. Hopefully won’t be too tanked to take it into the Stadium.

How was the away end today lads?

Seemed ok at the back, but not sure if many were singing lower down. Went quiet after they scored, and didn’t recover probably due to how badly we were playing and there was no believe we’d equalise

It was alright, not the worse end in the world. Went a bit quiet after the VAR though.

Died second half, even more so when they scored.

I could hear a load of lads singing in the concourse during the second half, while the game was on, for a good 5-10 minutes. Sums it up really. I presume it was for Instagram.

Was better than I expected it to be. Brummies showed us what a proper away end looks like though.

First time in SK1 today and thought it was really good, will definitely go there again. 

 

Really do notice that sound doesn’t travel as I rarely heard the Birmingham end despite them looking to be active

I like being too far away from the away fans to hear them. The whole point of the vocal support is to lift our lads, I couldn't care less about what the away fans are or aren't doing.

Sat in the family stand. Couldn't hear anything from the kop apart from first 10 mins of the second half. The Birmingham fans kept signing are we in a library. From where is was sat you can understand why

Kop can't hear the away fans, away fans can't hear the kop. Hardly a new phenomenon.

On TV the KOP looked like a National Trust members expo was being held.

 

The most horrific KOP in the land

They were loud but blimey, I reckon 75% of the songs were about Aston Villa.

 

We at least focus mainly on ourselves

Difficult to get up for a midweek game against lower league opposition. You can’t win. Either you win as you should or you don’t.
