Here's a strange one,one of this year's 6N games France I think,there was no ref mic and you know what I didn't enjoy the game as much. How weird am I? :smt003
I would've thought the only thing that you want on a match day is internet access! :smt003

I have simple tastes; I'd settle for a great on-field performance!

A team in the big boot who understand that they cannot put the ball down (but I assume they could hand it to one of their less abled catchers to hold).

No drummers
no gospel choirs
a few wins
to see a few of our international players.

The answer to the Big Boot balls down is to have one less able catcher to collect the caught balls in a black bag & let the good catchers get to work! ~ not seen it yet but bound to get disqualified for initiative.
A "few wins!" NO we want plenty of wins & restoration of "Fortress Welford Road!"

Stop the pre match banal drivel and a return to the classic pre start music sequence of Thunderbirds, Welcome to the Jungle, Carmina Burana,M&M and smoke on the water in that order. I miss the build up of atmosphere that this sequence creates and adds unlike the current drivel it positively adds to the match day experience!

I would like to see a return to Welcome to the Jungle, newer songs like Titanium, This Girl, Can’t Stop the Feeling and High Hopes are good potential crowd rousers.

The end of Shiney Happy People marked the start of the decline on the pitch :smt034 :smt035

Bring it back next season to mark the new beginning :smt038
If you don't go in hard it's not a tackle it's an insult.

Don't be silly! You know people can't cope with Tigers bringing things back from the past!

Or maybe the decline on the pitch marked the end of (some of) the Shiny Happy People........

I'm not sure there is a simple answer to the question.

One thing I would say is that if you are going to do something do it well... whatever that may be.

Also be aware of what your motives are.

The only important thing of interest is a decent performance by the team .

I think that is patently not true.

You only have to see the discussion on here around ticketing, kick off times, transport links, merchandise, match day catering, comfort, stewarding, crowd behaviour, pre/mid/post match entertainment, crowd atmosphere, etc., etc.

The performance of the team and the result of the game may be important but they are not the only thing that is important.
