Check It Out!
What's always overlooked in respect of the poor atmosphere at GP is the simple fact that we have very few important games. It's why we get animated for the derby, even though it's typically only important for local pride. I mean, how many big, very important games have we been involved in at GP in the last 5 years or so?
Sell out? I live in Portland, Oregon now as my name suggests you mong, how can I go every week. Yes I have a right to comment, I have spent an absolute fortune over the years traveling to watch Everton home and away. Everything I said is true, go sit in the GS dead loud at halftime, silent during the game. Loads of aways were the same, boss numbers but not that vocal (well better than at home though).You went???? Absolute sell out, you have no right to comment!

Kopite behaviour. Wait over.WOlves finished the match the other night (they won) and blared out Paradise City on the final whistle, it was excellent, everyone was buzzing. They also do mad pyrotechnics and tunes before night matches, really appeared to generate a big atmosphere, something we could really learn from.
waits "kopite behaviour" comments.
Strange then that in 3 of the last 5 seasons they've only taken the Lower Bullens stands........Id disagree with the vocal element.
People go the aways for something to do, a p##s up, the football is secondary.
While nothing wrong with that, when the fans are in the stands we are terrible. Just no songs, nothing witty, no supporting the team.....nothing. Just a mish mash of people argueing with each other.
I hate it when people say 'look how many fans have gone' and '3 million mile round trip'
Newcastle take full allocation there, as did sunderland, liverpool, utd, city do also and leeds would do the same. And look how many tickets are availible on here and twitter for them lengthy aways, people buy them just to get the away credits and then dont go, so the 3k can be more like 2k
The food hall though? As someone pointed out last night, we seem to confuse good support with numbers who are going for a piss up, this isnt support for the team, just lids having a laugh
Maybe the milk was off in the tea bar.Was exactly the same at Brighton, lids 'going sick' at the tea bar then silence when in the stand. Though tbf everybody (myself included) seemed absolutely bladdered after the 6 hour journey and the dross on the pitch was hardly inspiring
