:madman: Following on from my rant about the miserable :censored: who I had to sit next to in block O of the South Lower for the last season, I just wondered what trait really winds up the posters about those who sit near them.

I'll open it up with:

  1. Those who always get up to leave early to beat the rush: for f*!ks sake, it's Roots Hall, not Wembley!

  2. The general lack of singing in some areas of the South Upper, and the general lack of any heartbeat in the east.

I sit in the South Upper, and with all due respect, sometimes I can't be bothered to sing at home games. I am quite happy sitting there watching the game and having a chat to my family. I sing at away games and get very involved, but don't go about having a go at people for not singing. It's their choice. At least we're at the games and at least we're not slagging them off.

  6. Those individuals (& SUFC) that do not learn from being wrong, occasionally week in and week out.
  7. Those that use the 'wrong' kind of swear words knowing full well a young child can hear it.

I accept you all have your choices and that you can choose whichever option you wish.

However, it still annoys me as being a younger soul I like to get involved, and you get a few odd looks when you sing on your own.

I agree, however, some 'nice' things need saying and young children protected a tad!

It's the adults whom are dangerous lol!

8. Whistle happy refs who seek centre stage and refuse to let games flow with some amount of physical contact
9. Time wasting - taking ball to corner flag by either us or others. It is not football by any stretch of the imagination & could be construed as ungentlemanly conduct.
10. Failure to add sufficient extra time - substitutions which took in excess of 1 min, whereas only 30 secs per each are added. Favour offcial time keeping as in US where clock is stopped when ball is out of play, so 90 mins actual playing time.
