    What do you make of them?

    I quite liked the Dutch one they used to have but can't fucking stand this lot.

    Stick your fucking trumpets up your arse (sideways!).

    Calm down.

    FWIW, I don't really care about them because I don't notice them...!

    I haven't watched an England game in years, but last time all I remembered was the pathetic 'england england' chant of 5,000 schoolkids bussed in for free.

    I voted 'ok'. As long as they are not in the seats next to me that is.

    i hate them

    i hated it when QPR got a band in R block too. they stiffle the atmoshphere (strange but true) and play over the crowds singing.

    and they only know one fucking tune!! :mad:

    wrong wrong wrong

    Rubbish.

    Aren't they Villa or Birmingham supporters or something...

    Let's say, the novelty effect wore off pretty quickly.

    Yeah, but that band wasn't even fans! That was a band hired by your club to get the atmosphere going. :rolleyes: It's a game where your team can go up and they do that. Out of touch wankers! They were at Fulham a couple of seasons before that. They play "football songs" like vindaloo expecting the fans to like them - because we are football fans doesn't mean we like songs made up by Blur and that actor cont.

    Strange blokes with bells shouldn't be let in to football matches. Surely a bloody bell counts as an offensive weapon

    Balbi Hey, Dean Yager!

    you are referring to of course the legend that is John Portsmouth Football Club Westwood. Has missed one Portsmouth game in thirty years.

    A point is at Fratton Park the bell is actually chained to the floor beneath his seat. My cousin sits two rows in front of him and always has.

    *salutes Johnny*

    :D :D :D :D :D

    yeah that jolly antiquarian book seller of pompey, they had an interview with him in the observer a few months back. Wonder what will happen if/when they move from / rebuild fratton park??
     
  18. Balbi

    Balbi Hey, Dean Yager!

    we're rebuilding this summer, 35,000 seats i do believe.....

    and he's a permanent fixture of the club is John.

    top man!

    no no and thrice more no.

    even the fucking wednesday fans i know don't like them. it was vaguely amusing the first two times, but after that.....

    a mate always used to sit a couple of rows back from where they started playing, he says there were nearly scraps most weeks at first cos they annoyed the fuck out of everybody.

    aah, if only

    ...

    Who needs drums when you can get Burberry-wearing yokels to bang corigated metal plates at the back of the Upper Holte End?

    I remember a bunch of lads with steel-drums at Villa. I wonder what happened to them?

    Badgers Mr Big Shrimp!

    Was wondering last night why it is so intrusive.
    Are brass bands that loud in a big stadium or do the BBC have mics nearby?
    Do any other countries have similar at FIFA tournaments?
    Why are other countries not complaining about it?

    I have never met a single person who dies not despise it!
