Couldn't find a thread on this.
Just had to endure the North London Derby on TV (other half a Spurs fan).
Commentators on sky saying it was the best atmosphere this season.
Interested to hear what my fellow (unbiased!) Palace fans think, but my view is it's easy to give a good atmosphere when you're winning 3-0 at half time. I remember them booing the team off after losing 2-0 at home to Wolves just a few months ago. Compare to us, applauding the lads off after losing 2-3 to West Ham on new years day.
Also Spurs stadium twice our capacity, is 'atmosphere' done on a noise level only?

Yep noted that too.

Forgive me for saying so but I prefer the raucous, primal atmosphere you used to get at grounds, not so much anymore.

Most Prem teams these days have their 2,3,4,5 safe songs, everyone knows the words and can join in a lovely ‘ol sing along at their 200,000 seater stadiums. Boring for me.

Same could be said about us to be fair, but football is so commercial these days at the highest echelons you just don’t have that same feel.

I’ll take the palace fans chanting ‘off!off!off!’ after Akinbyi commuted a foul, whilst playing for us, in perfect, frothing at the mouth, vindictive unison over ‘we’ve got super pat Vieira’ like the school choir any day.

I’m still too young to be sounding like an old fart but I enjoyed the ‘atmosphere’ of yesteryears far more, not just a jolly old sing along for the whole family to enjoy.

I’ve just reread that, I need a pat on the shoulder, accompanied by ‘there, there’ and then time for bed methinks! COYP

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....

I did hear Gary Neville talking a bit of drivel. On commenting how great the atmosphere was, he stated that the spurs players dealt with it better, well yeah, no s*** Sherlock, the bulk of the crowd were spurs fans being the home team, they were bound to be up for it with the crowd mostly behind them

I could be wrong, usually am, but I remembered it being Alan Pardew.

Yes I remember that being at Bournemouth in a 2nd division game, but maybe Akinbyi was also given that accolade.

 


Just retired and almost mastered decorating but haven't learned to garden yet

There are times when the atmosphere at a football match can be no better. When that happens, the atmosphere at a 60k stadium will surpass the atmosphere at a 26k stadium. So what?

 


If you want to live in a world full of kindness, respect and love, try to show these qualities.

It may well have been... too. I certainly remember it for poor old Akinbyi however.

Definitely should have been.
When he did finally score, and whipped off his shirt...well it was obvious he had spent more time in the gym than practicing football!

I have been to a few London stadiums as a neutral this season! and have to say:

I was not impressed with the "Atmosphere" in other stadiums! chelsea, arsenal, spurs, west ham the fans are so negative! Never get behind thier own team and constantly call their own players the C word!

only when they are winning is there a bit of atmosphere. On sunday i was at the emirates and when leeds got 1 goal back the atmosphere turned sour with fans getting on thier players backs!

Wheras with us we support out players 100 percent! (mostly) and I do think we have the best atmosphere!

Went to Spurs v Palace at Xmas.
I was struck at the time how much of the atmosphere was generated through pre-recorded crowd cheering, broadcast over speaker system. The sound ‘pitch’ seemed to be all wrong and it drove me bonkers ! A big NO from me !

I too loved the atmosphere in olden days.

Fond memories of the Brighton chaps at the Goldstone happily chanting 'you'll never reach the station!'. What fun we had.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.
