    id be all for the ultra style support. drums and megaphone. even if its just say 20 minutes of the blues go marching in ( another one thats never really sung) like a few years ago against juventus. that would be great. i think the megaphone would make the biggest difference.

    The Singing Section is in the absolute worst place it could possibly be though. It keeps being said because it’s true

    Seats were already taken in every block when the club decided to move everyone out of the North Stand to create the failure we’ve got now, seats were taken up in areas where fans were kicked out to create corporate areas.

    If the club wanted to do it they’d sort it out. It’s not that they can’t, it’s that they can’t be bothered because it won’t earn them any money so they think “that’ll do, fuck ‘em!”

    But I bet deep down the players and management staff are disappointed with our support. If it were down to them instead of the men who think getting high up the profits list is what’s important, I’d bet the whole situation would be better

    Im in 216 and like every other area there are a lot of fans who don't sing, but there are a few of us who do try and encourage the team and some fans do join in. But in a lot of peoples defence, the football is so engrossing at the moment that fans are more interested watching what is happening on the pitch as to singing a song. It would be nice if the fans could stay to acknowledge the team at the end and at least make up for the lack of atmosphere during game. But that will not change unfortunately till the infra structure around the ground for getting fans away quickly improves.

    We must be the only club without a ‘end’.
    You’ve got away fans splitting one end, and the club fucked everyone out of the other end for that family stand which is a disaster.

    Songs used to filter down the east stand l1 from 111/110 but that doesn’t happen anymore due to a lot of fans moving up to the south stand for cheaper seats.

    We could get a full end if away fans were moved into 111-109 and the kippax joined the south stand but this won’t happen cos the clubs already happy with putting away fans in SS3 for cup games (which gives them one up on us in our own ground)
    With the numbers we have wanting to sing we don’t need a kop style tier in the north stand. A singing section in SS3 - from there sound will start to travel throughout the ground.
    Remember the club used different material in the south stand roof that deflects noise instead of deadening it like what’s in the roof of the rest of the ground. Athletics grounds are always made with this in mind so sounds don’t distract the runners when they’re settjng off.

    This is the issue really. I've sat in other parts of the ground this year. Mainly CBL3. You can hear a lot of singing from 115 from there. It's not necessarily loud, but it's clearly audible. People don't join in. If more did, we wouldn't have this conversation.

    if tomorrow the club came to us and said we can move where we want or next season north stand is done, without a doubt it would be better to have our own full end. But as it stands 115 is the bets place to get songs going.

    It makes no odds where we are though, if fans don't sing it wont happen and the reason why fans don't sing has nothing to do with where we are. moving us to an area that we prefer isn't going to suddenly make fans belt their hearts out.

    Its a fan culture shake up needed. We do have lots of fans wanting it, we are diluted with those not bothered.

    yes agree, a slow gradual bringing in of a few songs ultra style. Lots of fans disagree and say they want the spontaneous banter type stuff.. But that is the reason why we are in this situation... If tomorrow Basel played city in a friendly and 300 basel fans came to our stadium, they would without a doubt out sing our 55k capacity of city fans.. That says it all, ultra style does work, doesn't mean to say we go all out drum and pre rehearsed, there is a happy medium.

    it doesn't even have to be ultra style songs, ( ole ole ..... type ones) it could literally just be 200 people singing never felt more like singing the blues for 20 minutes... id class that as traditional english atmosphere. the spontaneous banter stuff doesn't really exist now and the idea we need away fans is a myth swell. we've had our 'home end split by away fans for years now and its made no difference to atmosphere.

    we are playing stoke tonight, where usually someone bangs on the back when we sing the guardiola song. no difference really to a drum. the traditional english atmosphere is dead and id welcome a proper ultra group of 200 people just non stop singing ( what fans used to do)
