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.
