    Sometime in the mid 90s a bride and groom - straight from church, wedding dress, morning suit etc. were introduced to the crowd before kick off, within a few seconds the chants of "Does she take it, does she take it, does she take it up the ***** " rang round the Boleyn

    Now you know who it is...

    You'll be pleased to know I aren't doing it as much this year, the usual lad is doing it so I can watch the Game more.

    Its people who can afford it or have a lot of spare time. Also the club have encouraged lots of families to attend VP due to the prices so its no surprise to see those same families starting to travel to away games.

    Discussing with my brother earlier he reminded me that a second chant of "just like her mum, she takes it up the *** ", seconds before the PA got turned up and the DJ played "Congratulations" and drowned out the chants

    Its just the cost of ripping up the seating and putting rail seats up in as once they have been installed the ground layout will have been changed and so a new safety certificate will have to be issued and this can cost up to £10-20k.

    Until the government change law regarding standing in the top 2 tiers it would be pointless installing them as they would have to be replaced by seats after 2 years in the championship unless the law was changed in the mean time.

    Nothing sanitised about Gary Jones, Garry Thompson, Nahki Wells or Stephen Darby chants and they could get the crowd going. Nothing to do with it being sanitised or a " problem with the modern age".

    If you are dreaming of a time when racist and sexist chants were acceptable then you should have a strong word with yourself.

    The day we have sexual equality in crude and sexually explicit chants will be a proud day for me.

    I hope we see it in my lifetime...

    I think the atmosphere has tailed off because previously we were on an upward trajectory with the league cup final being the catalyst for getting everyone singing (that second half non stop singing will live long in the memory). After that with the flags and "take me home" it seemed everyone wanted to join in. Then came the Chelsea game and "everywhere we go" followed by the play offs.

    This year we've been knocked out of both major cups and after a great start we slipped off the pace. If we can keep the winning run going I'm sure the atmosphere will pick up again, but we need to feel like it's backs against the wall to get us going. If we can be pushing for top 2 then there'll be nowhere else with a better atmosphere than Valley Parade.

    Also noticed the lack of songs for our new crop of players. That promotion season we had a catchy little song for nearly every player on the team, meaning we didn't sing the same 2/3 ones constantly for the duration, which does get boring. The lads surrounding the drum need some new material for the new players. I'm not nearly creative enough!
