What I'm going to suggest is going to seem very impractical, but this is how I think we can really impress. Away at Colchester has to be the game, because they are typically our rival - Theres no point doing it at Hereford away because that won't mean anything.

2000 Balloons of light blue and dark blue, it would look much better them going all round the place than the mixture of colours we had away at Tranmere, despite the fact that there was a really good atmosphere and they helped.

Drums are a must, but often we are not allowed them in but we are allowed bags in, simple just get two bags give one to your mate containing 2 pairs of computer or ordinary speakers and the other one to yourself with a phone that has a loud drum noise on it, may sound like it will all go belly up but I tried this at home after reading about not being allowed drums away at Walsall and my mum came up shouting "Where did you get that bloody drum from?"

Vocally are usually quite intense, but like at Tranmere the atmosphere fell after the first 15 minutes of the match. The key to any good atmosphere or show is consistency.

Flags have always been something I have tried to push to Lee on MSN, and Doncaster really showed that, but I can't see it being easy to have 1000 people all trying to throw baloons up in the air whilst waving flags I think it would look a bit disorganised. Then I saw what the Italians do with the giant flags and I thought "Why not?" so I searched around and found some custom flags on sale.

Other Instruments like horns, trumpets etc have been mentioned around here so if you know how to play one, I'm sure Lee will be happy yo hear from you.

good thinking although what you said about the atmosphere dwindling is mainly due to the performance of the players, cant see the atmosphere being great if we have a repeat of last years home game
