I think this is very upsetting for Terry and I would not like to see this stopped.

The horn makes a big difference to the crowd.

And I might add "if" we get into Europe these stewards will have to get used to European supporters with horns and all sorts............ let alone drums from the chiefs.

It is just ridiculous when you have the tannoy guy screaming make some noise.

Terry I would suggest you speak to the club to get their take on this.

I think a quiet word with the stewards at the next briefing is called for. I assume just a one-off mistake that won't be repeated.

Keep blowing Terry.

Do we want an organic atmosphere or not? For goodness sake! Someone needs to sort this out. We need horns, flags and cowbells. And new chants! Surely someone can be done with the name takalua?

Seriously, can we do the continental football thing where the tannoy says "the tryscorer...verenikiiii..."

And then the crowd respond

"GONEVA....GONEVA....GONEVAAAA"

Folks

We'll be discussing why this occurred at tomorrow's post-match and will come back asap.

Certainly don't want to stifle the great atmosphere that exists in the South Stand and throughout the ground in recent times

Thanks

Mick

The solution seems very straightforward...if the horn is a little too loud, stand a little further away.

The horn has always been part of the match day experience for me.

Me too TFA, once thought we could get one in each stand and go round the ground like a 'Falcons' wave....the volume on Friday especially in the last 10 mins was inspirational.
Perhaps the players should have the deciding vote.

I suggest:" TIKI TIKI TIKI TAKALUA, TIKI TIKI, TIKI TAKALUA"

and:" GONEVA, GONEVA, GONE OVER....."

As to the horn, if this new ruling persists, we should organise a mass blowathon with as many if us as possible getting horns abd using them.

No need to make an issue of it, I am sure it will blow over.

I thought the horn roused the crowd Friday night when we were being out shouted by the Sale fans
