22382 Twenty Two Thousand, Three Hundred and Eighty Two extra fans
There were 22382 more fans in attendance at the OS on Sat to watch the Palace game compared to the emotional, last game at Upton Park, Premiership 3 - 2 win over Man Utd back in May

Nearly 57'000 to watch a lower table freezing early January scrap

That's following the 0 - 5 home Man City thrashing and a bad week (Payet etc)

There's life in the old dog yet, thanks to the fans....

I wouldn't listen to Sold, the blokes a Grade A plum he stopped going to the Boleyn YEARS before it closed because his 'mates' told him to and has never set foot in Stratford never mind the new ground

Bloke can't think for himself and is best ignored

Also otb even in upper tier at Boleyn if a group of your were chanting or singing it could at least be heard in the pitch. What is the point of trying to make any noise in most of os? No one else can hear it any distance away. And you picked up on one specific comment rather than replying to the gist of my post. I was actually in favour of the move as I thought it wouldn't diminish the experience but may mean we could compete higher up the table. Instead it has fucked the experience of going to matches and it's clearly beyond our current owners to manage a business of this magnitude.

Sold surely you can come up with an opinion to answer Ball SON's question about the upper tier. After all you come up with enough about the LS - a place you've also never been to.

Re: 22382 Twenty Two Thousand, Three Hundred and Eighty Two extra fans
Lol. I've created a monster.

I was west lower at the Boleyn in last season. Previously was upper tier and at least I was surrounded by sths who actually turned up. It was not as dead as east upper at the new place.

Of course not - but then I didn't say they could. I just asked whether they could hear abuse from the upper tiers of UP.

Are you honestly telling me... even with your "I fear change" t-shirt on that the players could hear abuse from the upper tiers of UP?

Behave you fucking loon.

Well maybe Fifth never sat at the back of the West Stand either ??

Are you honestly telling me... even with your `I love Brady' T shirt on that the players at the new place can actually hear abuse and shit thrown at them like they did at UP ?? Behave you fucking loon...

Re: 22382 Twenty Two Thousand, Three Hundred and Eighty Two extra fans
Good for you.

So you pull me up on my comment something, yet apparently have no idea whether it's true? If he'd said that UP was painted yellow and I'd pulled him up on it, would that be "classic OTB"?

I get that you're being deliberately obtuse because you shouldn't have said anything in the first place, yet I'm the thick fucking cunt?

Ball... I stood in the CR and BML..... and before that in the NB, CR, Lower West side (Occasionally) and the SB....

You have a pop at me for being Clubman, yet I was asking a simple question about something that clearly isn't accurate, just romanticised memories. So I put that question to you, yet oddly you won't answer it.

Do you think the players could hear people from the upper tier at UP?

What the fuck are you rambling on about Ball... go and count some ticket stubs or something... absolutely all over the shop

Really? I thought you never went. You say that kind of thing often enough and you come across as someone who has never been to a game in his life.

Do you think the players could hear people from the upper tier at UP?

Yeah you are ... I had a ST in the CR from 4 years and the next 16 in the BML... next ??

Re: 22382 Twenty Two Thousand, Three Hundred and Eighty Two extra fans
Around and around in circles on this but I'm going to repeat my perspective just like everyone else... my kids don't want to go to most home matches... and not just the "small" ones. But it's not about winning. They still want to go to the away matches and we're not winning those matches either. They're coming all the way up to Boro.

They don't want to come to the home matches because it's dull - the atmosphere is almost always shit (we're in the upper tier). And yes sometimes it was shit at the Boleyn blah blah but it's not like now. We seem to have different people sitting around us and empty seats around us every single match. There were clearly several Man Utd fans around us for the Man Utd match.

I don't care about winning and neither do my kids, but football is supposed to be a laugh, close enough to be able to shout abuse at the players and them to hear you, the people around you singing at least sometimes during the match. Now in large sections of the ground it's like being at the Emirates... albeit without the redeeming feature of good football like you get there. Shit on the pitch, shit off the pitch.
