The band playing Abide With Me
Don't know why (maybe cos i was quite pissed), but that was one of the most affecting moments from last night.
Was a great touch having the band there.

Thanks Prem

That was one of the most touching moments of the night for me.

Re: The band playing Abide With Me
The video that was shown on the screens should be a permanent fixture on the official site and updated when we lose anyone.

Re: The band playing Abide With Me
I admit that it was the only moment during the entire proceedings that really got to me.

As the band started playing it, and as the names started to roll up on the screen, I thought of my old dad standing on the Chicken Run as he did for most of the 40's, 50's and 60's before his premature death in 1970.

Re: The band playing Abide With Me
This should have been shown as a key part of the Sky coverage of the game.

I do not know the worldwide viewing figures for Sky but there would have been millions of fans worldwide who would have loved to see / hear that aspect, in much the same way they did not show the after match lap of honour by the players before the closing ceremony.

Hornchurch Drum and Trumpet Corps were always the better band in their hey day.
Mr Burns - toot toot!

Re: The band playing Abide With Me
That got me a bit too - it's a dirge of a song at the best of times

Thought of all my brown bread family who used to stand on the old north bank

RIP

Re: The band playing Abide With Me
I love Abide With Me. It was either at Dylan Tombides or John Lyall when the applause started and that was the blubbiest bit for me. Nobes interview later was great too. To be honest I thought the after match stuff (apart from Sir Trevor and Nobes interviews, some of the videos and the fireworks) was poor, but it would have been out of keeping with ground tradition for it to be anything else. Slicker production values will fit better with the OS.

Don't know who they were but I heard elmparkpikey was on the trumpet.

Re: The band playing Abide With Me
Didn't see the pre-match. Did they play The Post Horn Gallop?

Eddie B 1:55 Wed May 11
Re: The band playing Abide With Me
Agreed, Johnson.

Has anyone got a link to it, maybe?

Re: The band playing Abide With Me
Was good that bit although T they could have announced it to try and quiet the fans down.

colinos 1:22 Wed May 11
Re: The band playing Abide With Me
Yep, the most emotional part of the evening for me as also made me think of family who took me to games or went to the ground and have also died. Much more moving than the closing ceremony.

Re: The band playing Abide With Me
Lovely to see the band, reminded me of the old days, and was more happier when the Cockney rejects started playing. A great night.
