I hate drums at football, and some twunt with a megaphone sounds like a fucking nightmare and a quick way to make ourselves a laughing stock the same way we laugh at any other teams with 'assisted' noisemaking.

'Wanting to emulate'  European Ultras... European Ultras groups typically have ties to right wing or neo nazi groups outside the stadium, and provide a connotation of violence. Following in from that, a kapo was an enforcer in concentration camps, typically of Jewish heritage, who essentially worked for the Nazis for preferential treatment. Maybe that's what they want to emulate'?

I like the increasing prevalence of bucket hats though. Perhaps the whole town end could all come wearing bucket hats.

Swing and a miss lads, maybe try something that's a bit less... fascist...

The political side of it didn't even enter my head, but there does seem to be an element of that to most European Ultras groups.

I just hated the suggestion initially because its fucking shit and tin pot.

they dropped the drum idea.

whatever floats their boat. not sure forcing it on T2 is a good idea but who knows, may work to the opposite and work well

I can assure you the st Pauli ultras have microphones and aren't right wing

I assume drumming kid intends to dust off his percussion equipment. 

I can place my hand on heart and say this has nothing to do with me!!  My drum is retired for life

Top post of this thread. I assume in this context they intend it to be more like a mafioso 'capo' - a leader.

Yeah, the majority of Italian Ultra groups for example have far right affiliations. Wasn't always the case though.
The history is interesting & sprinkled with a lot of tragedy over the years.

On the whole, maybe the efforts at Crystal Palace would be the better model to adopt for fan groups wanting to make a go of it over here.

Shudder at the thought of that. But the people who loved Glad All Over and were adamant about keeping it, they'll be happy.

Drum?



I think sorting their graphic design out is of greater concern, I couldn't read that without my eyes going funny!

Please fuck off whoever made this.

Drums are for teams with shit or plastic supports like Yeovil or Reading. Just fuck off.

We could probably do with one then as our support at home is awful!

A drum would transform it from 'awful home support' to 'awful home support with a drum.'
