After reading many comments appearing on here and the bounce, we have decided to select a few "head figures", who can steer the group in the right direction.

The positions we think are vital are:

Relations - Somebody to be a "spokesperson" for the group, who can let everyone know what will be happening well. This person would be the person responsible for talking to fans etc (Stew)

Arrangement - Somebody who can contact people, and arrange dates with the group/club etc. Will be extremely important to keep group up and running


Designer - Sums itself up really. This person would think of banners etc. Artistic mind is needed for this. Also, would be helpful is this person had access to spacious areas.

Displays - Somebody who can communicate well with designer. Needs to have an artistic mind also, and have vibrant ideas, aimed at improving the atmosphere. This person would also be responsible for making new songs etc.
(McLeod 1875)

Web Techy - Somebody with skills on a PC. Would be responsible for keeping website up to date, and would need to communiacte with Relations, so that all news is easily accessible , and is available to everyone. (Jamie)

Main Head Figure - Somebody who can keep everything running smoothly.

If you think you would be a suitable person for any role, then please leave your name.

Good luck with it and if I can help in anyway give me a shout:thumbsup:

PS:

Idea 1 A Scottish Day

Idea 2 A combined Irish/Ulster day - that would confuse the SF and get press coverage of the most integrated support in Scotland:thumbsup:

Far too beaurocratic mate. The first two positions can be merged, as can teh second two, and this "main head figure" is entirely unnecessary.

Your setting up a fans group, not a workers melitia - treat it as such!

Good luck though guys, and I'm sure when I'm along at the games i'll be joining in with all your songs :agree:

I remember someone once mentioned that it would be an idea to have someone to have a 'fan leader' at Easter Road. ie someone with the loud speaker starting the songs that you hear in many of the continental games. I went to see Marseille last year and they had such a person who obviously had the assistance of the club as they had use of a PA system behind the goals. I reckon this would be superb but not sure what everyone else reckons..

Fair play mate, you're obviously putting a lot of time and effort into it, but I think you could do yourselves a favour by not referring to yourselves as Ultras as you're clearly not Ultras.

You'll be leaving yourself open to a lot of ridicule.

Like I said, fair play for making the effort though and good luck to you.

exactly - remember the Livi drummer? what a cock.. nothing wrong with singing at the fitba - keep the drums, triangles and loudspeakers away from the match - some of us actually do have hangovers at the games remember!!

do any of the capital greens sit anywhere other than the east? if not try get them involved - it's always been too quiet everywhere else in the ground for me.. :thumbsup:

Sweet Jeebus - are "Capital Greens" the bunch of jumped up 16 year olds that sat right at the back of the "Gazebo side" of the away end at Hamilton??

One of whom was about 12 and insisted on smoking at the front of the stand before the game (erse) and the group that treated us to the Paul Hartley, WM and - albeit briefly - the "Steven Pressley, child molester" tune song. As well as some hilarious ditty about someone who "had AIDS and can't get rid of it, dirty Jambo *******"

If that's the future of the "Ultras" atmosphere at ER, then God help us.

I don't know of any of us who smoke, and the youngest is 14.

I don't remember us signing Paul Hartley

Steven Pressley, was admittedly sung, but only by one or two of us. Was then decided not to sing it EVER again.

I would like to take the opportunity to state that we are completely against and racial/sectarian/O.T.T songs

Good. Me too.

I wish you all the best with your future non-sectarian/racist endeavours.

I like singing relevant Hibs songs that glorify HFC as loudly as anyone.

The quoted songs do not fit any of the above criteria. And there was definitely some sort of "was funny once about 2 years ago" PH song in there - either the Romanov sucking him off one or the other one.

Good that you've taken the "Executive Decision" not to sing the Pressley song, although I'm left scratching my head at why the hell it was uttered at a Hamilton vs Hibs game :dunno:

Liked the "Cannae fill your gazeebo" chant though :greengrin

The new east stand is the key. There are a lot of people in the north and the west who like a sing song and will be more animated when they move back over.

Keep at it guys and when the club starts working out seating for the new stand get your point over as clearly and often as possible. If you want a "singing section"......... make it happen!

If you need any help from hibs.net just let us know.

I agree with that, my Dad goes absolutely radio rental at most games but is situated in the FF. A new East Stand would be more suitable for him:greengrin.

Surely the thing this lot need most is a few people with proper loud voices to get the chants going?

I don't know any capital greens but I've seen them at Hibs games and it's a really good idea in theory, ER and our away support desperately needs a better atmosphere, especially if the east stand gets knocked down. Only problem seems to be that you're all quite young and the chants never seem to go too far, get yourselves some big laddies who can belt out Hail Hail and you're away.

Not suggesting some old boy, people you're own age obv.

P.S on a slightly different note, Sunday was the day that proved to me that knocking down the east won't ruin the atmosphere. I thought the atmosphere in there was very, very loud at times, yet anyone I've talked to at the game not in the east (jambo's or otherwise) said the Hibs support were rubbish. Such is the old banger-ness of the east, the only people who get the full atmosphere of the east stand are the ones sitting in it. Get it knocked down asap.

This is essential - there are people around the ground that want to sing and would do for most of the game if in the right area.

I know Newcastle have a section which seems to work and I think with the set up of the new east that the final few sections need to be advertised as supporters sections where people are pre warned what to expect :agree:

singing has a ripple effect I believe. therefore maybe a singing section situated in the middle of our support (as in the east nearest the FF) perhaps the knock on effect would go via the FF, into the west stand but also along the east as well :dunno:

I could be talking b0ll0x right enough.

with the singers located at the far end of the east, does the singing not just get stuck there????:dunno:

anyhoos, in a new east stand, a designated 'singers section' is a must to deal with this problem....and it is a problem.

Problem with that is that it's fair to say there is always a natural gravitation towards the away end for such singing sections.
