Much cheaper tickets for kids in the locality as well. The average age is about 42 now, that can't help the atmosphere, coupled with our fans who'd rather a bovril than a singsong...................

A singsong? Something like ‘Roll out the barrel’ or ‘Knees up mother Brown’?

Certainly feels like it

If they could rearrange the stadium a bit and give us a singing end and stick the away support in a corner that would also meet with my approval.

 Why sing Cockney songs? We could sing classic Sotonian numbers like 

“Washing my car on a Sunday”

”Can an extra half a mild in as it’s a Friday night Betty”

OK Barry, why would safe standing "improve the atmosphere"?

Surely better football on the pitch would do that as well?

BTW< I'm not against safe standing I just don't get the improve the atmosphere point!

 Best put in a spit guard as well so the away fans don't get covered in slobber from us 'tutting' our mild disapproval at their unsporting behaviour eh Baz?  Also cup holders built in to the new terraces for my extra large Bovril please.

Let's have a bit of Vera Lynn. Get the songsheets put on seats before the game. 

Cobham Saint posted this 2 weeks ago

Heated, padded seats would be nice and waiter service for half time beer & pies.

CB Saint posted this 2 weeks ago

They could do with a decent wine list

Barry Sanchez posted this 2 weeks ago

There aren't many on here actually saying the atmosphere is great, so from that I'll take it is shite?

Cobham Saint posted this 2 weeks ago

The atmosphere is fine, for a given value of fine, it would just be improved by the small things listed above Baz.

 Lallana, relegation, Chinese takeover, shite atmosphere, woeful business strategy, bunch of hairdressers in the team, lack of passion etc etc, I ain't been wrong many times mush, even Ricky van Wolfswinkel has come good.
