For the big matches there's no unity to the atmosphere. There are several different songs starting off at once and they don't catch on around the ground. That's what makes atmosphere.

The ground needs one voice to get everyone involved.
Atmosphere isn't singing songs.....atmosphere is when everyone cheers for every tackle/throw in/corner/shot and shouts "come on" everytime we cross the halfway line !!!
That's atmosphere only at English stadiums...

What's the real atmosphere showed Aris fans tonight. I'm Manchester City supporter, it would be too much to say I'm fan, but I was ashamed tonight to see away fans completely own home fans.

And that's because "come on" and similar shouts are something that is usually considered as atmosphere in England. It's far, far away from atmosphere.

Don't for one minute think this is just a problem at City virtually every ground every ground is sterile unfortunately and putting a few cringey banners like Chelsea eg Ireland is superman isn't going to improve things. Don't forget this is what the government want ie the Taylor report. The main problems are

A, Football is to expensive for a lot of people thesedays and that's why you don't see big groups of youngish lads that's why football grounds look like a cinema audience.

B, Reserved seating, there's around 20 of us who meet up before the game boozing together and basically having a good time but when we get in the ground we're all split up in all 4 corners. In the standing days we'd all be together and that's how songs start.

C, if you do happen to get a bit too excited the "führer" Peter Fletcher is likely to take a dim view of things and take your card off you and impose a ban which has happened to numerous people
^^^this!!!
sky have totally fucked the game up aswell

That tonight is what the south stand should aspire to be. The thing that impressed me most about Aris support was not the noise, but the amount of colour and bannners they had. It look messy and great.

THAT is what we need. Anyone got any pictures of their end?

To be fair if they played in our league, with the law the way it is, within a season or two that would be stopped. I think everyone wants regulated standing areas to return, but it's the law, because of whats happened in our footballing history. Although the atmosphere is shite, there hasn't been a major tragedy in English football since the law was changed!! So how can we change the atmosphere, within the letter of the law as it stands. First step is move the away fans from behind the goal, put them somewhere in the third tier, and fill that whole stand with City fans that want to chant etc. That would be a major improvement!

i totally agree mate, i mentioned this in another thread too. I think what happened with the fan regulation is for the good of english football....you have a proper league which can be proud to have worldwide rcognition, sponsors etc.

greek league at times is like watching a zoo.
Aris fans are superb, they are really top notch...non-violent, etc and most fans are....but when you get the ugly scenes with olympiakos and others, it is really ugly...

a price is paid for this fanaticism.

The thing is.

Fans across England are standing again in seated areas. Is that safe? No matter which ground it is, home and away fans have defied the no standing rule/ban. It's got to such an extent that the Government, the PL and the clubs should now introduce safe standing in one stand at each stadium. Keep the other 3 stands all seater.

One more point. This isn't a criticism of City. I'm really grateful that they let me in with the megaphone. However, it took 6 stewards of various supervisory levels to get the go ahead to let me into the ground with the megaphone. Until that point the stewards would not let me in the ground. That was after I explained who I emailed at the club.

Just for one second think about that. I'm taking a megaphone to the match, not flares, etc. But before I could gain access to the stadium, it had to go through various levels of authority before I finally got the OK. I don't know who makes these rules up or why they are implemented so strictly, but it seems to me that the people who run our country and football in general, have lost all sense of reality. Compare that to Rugby fans or fans of other sports, who can drink on the terraeces and do what they please, without little or any interference. You couldn't even by a beer tonight.

There is not a chance in hell that we would be allowed to create an atmosphere like the fans of Poznan and Aris have done.

Not sure about the flags bit as ive seen too many stewards,too many times moving City flags/banners because they are obscuring a sponsors name but would love to see more.
Biggest issue is the handing over of a prime spot behind a goal.
Like many others I wrote to the club in the first season at the stadium and was advised that "nothing could be altered due to safety issues"
So we will continue to sit in the corners of away grounds perched as far away as possible from the pitch whilst saying to opposing fans,"there you go best view in the place right behind the goals get behind your team and have a good day" and you lot either side of them sit down .

Did anyone else notice. Hard not too. Not a single Aris flag was removed from the sponsors hoardings on the top tier. On any other PL match day, if you put a banner or flag over one of the sponsors, the stewards tell you to remove it straightaway. So what gives?
