You will always get people moaning about a drum but you look around the country and Europe at some of the best atmospheres around and a large number of them have a drum. It keeps tempo which is something our fans are absolutely atrocious at, i mean truly horrific, and its the main reason why songs dont get further than a block from where they startec. against bristol we had about 5 different pockets of fans singing the gusrdiola song at different speeds, how is that ever going to encourage others who dont usually sing to join in when they don't know who to join in with? It also maintains songs for longer renditions than we would otherwise get and it ensures everyone is on the same song and not a handful of people signing 4 different songs. The key thing is though, the drummer has to not be some cock just banging like a year old. There's no downside to a drum other than fans who don't usually even make a noise suddenly piping up expressing their displeasure in it. For all those against a drum, none of them ever gives a genuine reason as to why they're against it other than its "cringey" or "small time" I don't see how anything that adds to ghe atmosphere is cringey, surely it's better than silence?
