South Stand Singers For Sunderland (H)

by Royal_jimmy » 10 Apr 2018 08:49

There's another group of fans planning to be in the south stand for Saturday's fixture vs Sunderland.

If you want to join this group then contact @tablefloor on Twitter. Otherwise pm me with your member card/season ticket number, your name and a contact number. Your ticket would be moved for the game at no extra price.

It was good fun in there for the Preston game. If we could get 100 in there then that would be brilliant.

Well I presume that means Sunderland will only have half the South Stand.

I know there's been a bit of ridicule regarding this but if this helps the atmosphere then I'm all for it.

I'd say about 85% has been positive. Really looking forward to it, hopefully it can be the start of something big. Huddersfield and Watford have done something similar and its worked well for them.

Also very much up for the idea of getting housed in the south stand as sound travels a lot better.

IN for Sunderland, IN for Ipswich and IN for next season :!:

Seems a little odd to have ‘ignoring the away fans’ as one of your central tenets, but then to position yourself right next to the away fans.

All in all a good plan though, and I’ll join you if I ever go to another home game.

If anyone does decide to take part then you will need to get to the ground by 2.30-2.40 as the group goes in together. On Saturday we met by the beer hut by the east stand.

I think the idea isnt as much as 'ignore the away fans' its more concentrate on reading, if that makes sense?

Taken from the twitter guy named above’s post about it.

Imo - It will be more difficult to get big numbers there with this as one of your policies. But I wish you/them all the best with it.

Hi, I've definitely got a life as I don't spend my matchday with a megaphone in a remote corner of the ground.

It's very embarrassing and the organisers need to go. Perhaps a perimeter ban from the stadium is most applicable.

Keep it up. The more this grows the louder the East stand will become too. Noticed it at the Preston game.

My only complaint is, if all the vocal support from Y26/Y25 moves, surely that will just make the east stand even more quiet.

Would be interested in joining this next season if it carries on. No need for a megaphone though, just need everyone singing.

Interesting that the other thread discussing this got deleted.

Know anything about that Genome?

Nope, but the Twitter group had picked up on it. I assume it was deleted because you were targeting real life individuals, and your comments had been seen by them
