The Drummer at Cov

I would like to thank you for playing and making it an excellent day to remember.
Queuing up to get in and hearing you and the lads creating an atmosphere to remember.
Best entrance to a game I've seen at the bottom of the steps.
What a day.

Never been a fan of drums at football, but have to agree, he was very impressive today.

The drum's always been good for support, home or away.
It's far better to have the drum at t'Mill than the Sound of Silence we have at the moment.

The drum was great yesterday and kept the crowd going all game, particularly in the second half. The loudest i've heard Stags fans in a long time.

I prefer the solo whistler on "everywhere we go".

The "drummer" and the "whistler" both played a great part in creating the atmosphere

I'm sure I saw something on Facebook that the drummer had broken the sticks (or whatever they're called).

Shame if so, would be good to see if the club could help out somehow

Drummer was awesome Saturday, kept the stags fans going all through the second half and spurred the players on to get the winner late on!

He was great. Rhythm, tempo, could hit a triplet and whipped up a great atmosphere in a stadium way too big.

Mtfc need to build in a great big massive drum for him in the stadium.

I love watching a good drummer. I always amazes me how they can do one thing with one hand and somat different with t'other whilst bangin their legs away on bass drum n cymbals. Keeping to the beat and going into and out of a solo and still keeping on beat.
Top top drummers likr Chris Slade are amazing to aatch.

The other foot operated is called a hi-hat and whilst I DO like our mans efforts he does at time just slightly drift off the beat it seems to me
I was sometimes a good many years ago a drum roadie :)
I've tried it , it is harder than it looks ;)
i'm with the 99%, how about you?

Just watched a cov blog of the game and he talked about the 2 sets of fans having a sing-off to see who was loudest...and this really contributed to a cracking atmosphere. Sometimes when the away following at the Wonk is small, you don’t get that rivalry or incentive. We could just create our own internal rivalry between the IG and the QLE to see which is louder and see whether it helps the atmosphere. Just a thought.

No contest IGU all day long, there's more life in a mortuary than QLE.

There we go fuse lit :lol: now expect a sing off. :D
