I thought c1871 started really well vs Fulham and was so good to hear a prolonged 'Blue Army' which Y25/26 got involved with - also find with that chant it is also easy for the rest of the ground to get involved in and when that does happen it is brilliant. Understandably when you are then getting pumped 4/5/then 6 then 7 at home that chants will go south.

The s*x offender chanting does my head in but seems to be part of parcel of any fanbase these days as I hear it on TV from other fan bases, Kidderminster fans were singing it about Carroll etc - it all started from Newcastle fans singing it at Ronaldo at OT. Would love our fanbase to be above that and just focus on our team, have heard our fans sing it about Mitro home/away / Warnock/ Billy Sharp/ Mick McCarthy. I personally don't find it remotely funny or 'banter'. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with a chant about opposition players and managers, some belters in the past like 'Ian Dowie the elephant man' etc etc

But all-in-all, there is no doubt in my mind that c1871 has been a tremendous success and has improved the atmosphere home and away. Just have a massive dislike for that type of chanting.

It is clear to me from the above accounts that club1871 need to go NOW and are doing more damage to the club then ever

Our reputation can be salvaged but this bunch of hooligans need to GO

Always cringe when I hear the sex offender song. I'd love it if we made it topical though.

We're the Royals, we're on a bender. Prince Andrew's a sex offender.

I go away and have done for years and I know the away demographic has changed in recent years but that is because the regulars have stopped going - there is definitely a younger demographic born out of c1871 in away ends. But lets face it, if they weren't there they would be empty seats resulting in less noise from the away end. Which therefore means that the creation of c1871 is benefiting the away support.

The anti C1871 posts are pure nonsense. That group has made a positive difference whether you want to be part of it or not!

What we had before them was a Y25 and Y26 that were getting quieter and quieter by the week; and it's not about rivalling sections either, it's about having noise in more place than one, and then when both sections link up, the noise carries around the stadium.

I loved Y26, but the noise just doesn't carry from there. Behind the goal and in that corner it does, and C1871 have made a great difference.

What we need now is Y25/26 to join in more; or raise their own game and C1871 will join them as well and it's win-win for the fans.

The anti-C1871 posts have convinced me that it's just DD talking to himself.

1871 were certainly better v Fulham than they were for Derby when they didn’t wake up until we went two up.
