I've started them all over Europe, half the time were not even playing.
We were in Prague a few weeks back on the FA cup final weekend in a proper snide bar that was underneath our apartment block on the morning of the game after a heavy one.
We got talking to some Czech fella who was sound an his name was Max. So they all started singing some song about that no mark who plays on the wing for them.
After about two half hearted verses I started laughing me head off at them and said watch, this is how Evertonians do it and belted out duncan had a pigeon for aba 10 minutes while all the Czechs in the bar started flapping.
five minutes after I finished one of the lads came down (3floors) cos he thought it was goin off and said he could hear it clear as day and all the Czechs in the bar started clapping and giving it Eve -erton in funny Czech voices. I was buzzing!!!
atmosphere hasnt been the same since we went out of europe.
I was in Florence, i was amazed how many made the trip, some even without tickets and just watched in a bar.
I'm all for lads doing something positive to help the club, making it better, but I honestly despair at this...

Atmosphere for me shouldn't be manufactured, it should be something that just occurs naturally, when things happen on the pitch that we can't control but love to watch. When things which bring out emotion happen on the pitch, then that emotion is put back through shouting, singing and hopefully cheering. Spurs, City, Sunderland and Fulham at Goodison in the league last season all fit the bill perfectly. The atmosphere in that second half against Spurs was electric, and the happiness and satisfaction during those two 4-0 matches is something you can't make, it just happens.
I'm all for having the famous atmosphere back at Goodison, i just don't think shoehorning a choir into a certain section of the ground is the right way to go about it. And what about the people who already sit in those seats and just want to watch the game ? I'd hate to be surrounded by people singing all game whether we were getting battered or not.
Bad weapons who think they are Stoke.
'Singing Section' arrrrghhhh its so lower league. Its the type of thing clubs do to get support and invite musical instruments into the ground

Start your choir lads.
Essentially that's what our famous "away" support is, can't call them small time.
Bayern Munich 1985 = Often quoted as the loudest night in Goodisons' history.
Big Dunc against Utd, 10 years on...us pushing for the Champions League = Electric.
Arteta's goal against Fiorentina = Absolute screamer that gets us equal on aggregate to put us in the last 16 of Europe, Goodison literally shakes...
...Now why on earth would watching us limp to a 1-0 home loss against Stoke, QPR and God knows how many draws against teams with the same history as Twitter inspire an atmosphere like the above?
Give us something to respond to, and boy will we respond...pretty simple.
Cena, Brennan learn your Everton history boys.
Is it true what they say about Dixie, Are you from Dixie, 1920s at least the Everton singing section in the Gwladys Street existed from. Lads congregating at the back of the Gwladys Street to sing.
It lasted for decades to the mid 90s and unreserved seating ending. This is how you get round it to continue under seating, advertise the area. The same area that existed all that time, back, middle of the Gwladys Street. You criticise this and you criticise our history.
