Xtc still get airplay on radio 2 so must have got something right I suppose. Always one of two songs though. To me they are listenable but nowt special.

But what is the point of music after a goal anyway.

Do people need some sort of audio hint when to celebrate a goal? I don't really care it gets played (though Glad All Over is shit and belongs to Palace), I just don't get what it brings.

Spot on. It seems to be one of those developments that is largely because a lot of other clubs do it so we must, rather than if it's the right thing to do.

It is very embarrasing when the music starts to blare out then cuts off cos the DJ sees the lino flagging for something Doh

I think it must be bloody annoying to have to sit through for the away fans - but yeah, it's sh*t for everyone.

Agreed. Music after goals is shit and totally unnecessary.

Hi Ho is good/loud when Wolves do it before the game but even that's not unique. Sheffield Wednesday do it too, although I'm not sure who started it.

Just be thankful you're not Ice Hockey fans. Music every. single. break. I do like the goal horns though. I'm sure someone on here once told me we used to play a train horn when we scored, or am I imagining that?

I used to get the horn when we scored - although that was in the dim and distant past.

I can just about raise a smile nowadays

Jed seems to be open to suggestions, so can we not write to him and ask him 1. not to play music after goals.  2. source a loud train horn  3. have signs on the gate explaining that all drums are banned and therefore all drummers can do one.

...and an XTC tune pre-match.  We need something with a Swindon connection.  Something that's us and no-one else.

I love XTC and the idea is brilliant for a local famous bands song playing pre game etc but I am not sure if any XTC songs are upbeat enough to give the crowd a lift before the game if I am honest.

Because she's shit.

Did I need to add that XTC would also work because they're quite good?   Wink

Supertramp have some strong Swindon connections.

Also the Moody Blues (Justin Heywards mum was my cookery teacher).
