    Hope you all enjoyed the balloons in the upper today !!!! Thinking of doing it again at either Birmingham or Stoke. We need to keep the atmosphere going as it was at Barnsley. Thought it was a bit disappointing today. See you all on Tues in better voice. We really must sing a thank you to Ron...

    Best Arnie film

    As a kid growing up everyone at school seemed to love an Arnie film. Basic format was Arnie had about 10 millions bullets and seemed unable to be killed despite having a small army shooting at him at any one time. He had to of course get hold of some ropey old bint and or course get his...

    Att - Singers

    Lets keep the songs fairly simple tonight hey lads. At Luton the "Blue Army" chant was fantastic and allowed everyone to get behind the blues. Some of the "On the first day of Christmas" stuff that sections were trying to get going were never going to work as they are too...

    Away Numbers

    Could someone be kind enough to post the away figures for all matches since Barnsley (17 Oct) for both those travelling fans at Roots and our travelling army at other grounds? I believe the matchday programme has been producing such numbers? ¡Muchas gracias!

  9. DTS


    First off I must say that I cant knock the club for making an effort to get in more fans. The kids are the life blood of the club and if we can get them in young we can keep them for life. I think we are tremendos at this and long may it continue. However - I have got to say whoever booked...

    Will, Why & Is

    1) Will Ronaldo get booed everytime he touches the ball? 2) Why dont we get a chant like "Steve Tilsons, blue army (clap clap cla clap) circulating the ground non stop like pompy do? 3) Is Fergie the most succesful manager to ever grave Roots Hall?

    The Bluetones

    Absolutely fantastic! What a top band! Didn't even know they had a new album coming out, not heard them much on the radio recently (XFM or Virgin Extreme). Very low key album release this one. Go get it! BLUE ARMY!

    A plea for help from a fellow shrimper!

    My mate Richard, a fanatical St Mirren Supporter and converted to a shrimper when he moved to Essex, flew out to Zambia the day after attending the league 2 play off final in Cardiff (what a send off!). He has not been back to the UK since, which means he completely missed seeing both his...

    Roll call for singing at Bournemouth

    O.K. here goes. I think more people sing away from home for obvious reasons. So for once the majority of us will be under cover and I know you can make alot of noise at Bournemouth. Bournemouth fans have been very quiet lately (source AFCB message boards) even against Yeovil (who also...
