Sunday is the only time most fans can show it, since they have not returned before.ftybr68 wrote:Give them a chant and a clap if we beat them, not before!
I disagree with you here Steve. I think they should be shown respect on returning to the club for what they achieved. So a good reception before the game, including when they come out.
Then once the game starts, we want to beat them, and there's no sentiment whatsoever.
Anyway, everyone will make their own choice on the day.

It's a vastly important game for our team and the focus should be to beat them first and pay tribute later. Like I said, come kick off all Cox and Murray will want to do is knock us out. They won't be thinking, oh what a lovely welcome, their focus will be on winning and so should ours.
Don't get me wrong, I don't want to hear booing before kick off but I don't want to hear chanting either! Remember they are coming to try and beat us not for a gentleman's light game of bowls followed by sandwiches and tea on the lawn!
Let's go to war - we can do the peace talks after.
Just my opinion like ha ha
Football is wonderful and gives folks like you and me the chance to voice our views! Whether you agree or not? No one is right and no one is wrong!

Well done to all for taking part in a debate minus any silly personal name calling! Shows we have a class in supporting our team

Remember though my post wasn't questioning what they achieved, I will be forever grateful for what they both did for my football club, I just thought that waiting until after was the better way of going about things. They will like nothing more than to rub our noses in the mire by winning and knocking us out!
Still out of respect of others, I will stand and gently applaud with you all before commentary but if we lose, then you lot are to blame ha ha!
Again thanks all of you for taking part in a sensible debate. See stagsnet is capable after all
