And here it is. Always enjoy looking at other fans forums. Whatever the outcome on Saturday we can go home happy knowing we live in or near the historical city of Exeter, while they live in the largest trading estate in the UK !

One particular quote from them is "...Established in 2015 apparently. Some history there."

Well, if you want to get into a conversation about history...

99 years ago we were busy beating Swansea Town 1-0 in front of 10,000 fans at St James Park. What were they up to?

If I'm being perfectly honest I can do without the displays around the whole ground. Just stick to the BB. It's where RL are where the atmosphere is. The Liverpool display was fantastic (y)

I know that makes me a misery. I know they have the best of intentions and I know they're coming from a well-intentioned place but honestly I can do without. When you're holding up bits of foil you can't even see what effect your having anyway and everyone just feels a bit awkward/embarrassed and wants to get on with clapping the players on.

It seems like the money/resources/effort and time could be much better spent elsewhere. Even if they are recyclable (are they REALLY?) do we really need to be adding to the massive waste of resources in the city/country/world?

Sincerely Yours

Fair enough Stelios, we understand it's not for everyone. People donate to us to do these displays and although the bank is a class terrace it is very limited to what you can do display wise. We also have to continue to do different stuff and make these displays bigger in order to continue to get these donations. We have heard from players how much these types of displays motivate them and it also seems to be a great pull for the clubs media department. It's just two minutes so if you could sing the boys out onto the pitch while participating that would be great. These things always look better with full participation. Loads of time, effort & money (donated) goes into these displays so would be a shame if people didn't participate due to 2 minutes of awkwardness. You'll be pleased to know the banner in front of the bank has been fully recycled from the display first game of the season. Trust me we try to recycle because these displays are very expensive.

Hope everyone will willingly participate and I'm sure it'll look great. UTC.

Well, as an exiled fan having to watch on Ifollow, I'm looking forward to seeing the effect. Hope it goes well and as many as possible participate.

Thanks for the reply Craig. I will certainly participate (y)

Personally, I think the 'USP' of SJP is the Big Bank so I would just concentrate on that as the ground is never going to resemble the San Siro or Camp Nou. But I do appreciate your efforts.

While there are aspects of what has gone on over the years with the RL that I have been very critical about, this most certainly isn't one of them - well done to all involved and I hope it's a massive success. If I were at the match tomorrow I'd certainly be holding up my foil.

Can't see any problem with this and anything to make the atmosphere better should be appreciated :hardly a huge effort for a fan to hold up a sheet for a minute. Don't be put off by City's prawn sandwich brigade...

My daughter who has learning difficulties contributed to a planned display with her pocket money.
Unfortunately the display, which was due at the game she was attending, had the display cancelled so efforts could be focused on a much bigger cup game which was coming up.

The Red Legion sent her a scarf in the post with a note, as a way to make up for missing the display.

She was overjoyed and it has helped her become an even more committed supporter.

Tomorrow she will be excited to take part and while it may not be for us older more cynical supporters, their efforts have definitely improved the atmosphere at games and encouraged youngsters to attend.

Please bear this in mind before being too critical of the Red Legion.

Glad she liked the scarf sent and even more glad she is able to participate tomorrow. We appreciate yours and your daughters continued support. Enjoy the day tomorrow! (y)

Thanks Benguin.

We've taken pelters since the beginning so its nothing new :)

I'm currently on a rammed train on my laptop sorting some last minute changes to the seating plan for the cards... we do it because we love the club nothing else. I appreciate there's been things people have disagreed with other the years - some think we shouldn't even exist - but I'm glad I'm part of it because we've seen some great scenes on the BB since formation.

Ultimately all we ask is for you to hold a piece of paper up for a minute or so as they players run out, the more people do it the better the effect.

As an aside I don't tend to post on here too much about RL anymore as I know I personally have some divisive viewpoints and I don't want it to muddy what they do. Rest assured the rest of RL are better men than me!

The post from Benguin should be able to show all of us and the RL the positive affect they are able to have and great touch sending the scarf and note. For me this is what makes our club different. Living in the States now I won't be at the game and have to work tomorrow morning (US time) but will look forward to watching it back on I-Follow and seeing the display. My Dad is still a season ticket holder so I'll also get the run down from him post game.

I know for a fact the players love the Big Bank when it's rocking and I hope that is the case tomorrow. Like many, my only hope is that everyone channels their voices and support into focusing on the team and Matty Taylor for 90 minutes! We have a chance to show MK what a real club looks like and I'm sure the RL and everyone within St James Park will not disappoint.

It's days like tomorrow that make me proud to be an Exeter fan and I hope everyone regardless of their opinions on the former manager unite, come together and create a cauldron of noise and positivity for the boys.....Come you Reds!!!
