    Drumming in the East

    Well done the singing section in the FF. Seemed to be at it all game, the banner was another cracker - itís just a shame the sound misses most of us in the East. However, big well done also goes to the guys at the back of section 38/39 in the East who were belting a beat out of the back walls.

    The atmosphere in all three Hibs stands was great but Iím sure a drum in the East would work well and compliment the FF section.

    I say get the singing section back to the East. Although it was great last night, East and FF were singing the same songs but not at the same time/verse.

    Placing them in the section at the end of the stand isn't great, a lot of noise made will just bounce off the walls and not make it to the east, hence it sounds very quiet from the east.

    If they must remain in the FF, they need to be front and centre, right behind the goal, move the family section to the West.

    The East has long been the source of the most noise at ER, and I feel that the decision to move was a poor one, regardless of who made it.

    If they go back to the East, stick them on the halfway line and at the front, but not right down the bottom.

    100% agree. Sound is lost in the FF5 upper, although they all do a great job
    Love them at the away games, as weíre usually all in the same stand

    We were outsung in a home derby in the first half. The only reason for that is the fact that the two main singing areas canít hear each other. Everyone was singing as normal, but it was different songs and the atmosphere in the home end suffered in the first half. We seem to have ended up with a situation where a group of fans have decided that their club is more important than the reason they set it up.

    I was in the West last night billy and I couldnít hear any hibs songs. I could hear hearts fans, and at times I could hear hibs fans but I couldnít hear what songs they were singing.
    Surely the purpose of the singing section is to create an atmosphere in the stadium. They did that when they were in the east, they donít where they are now. Do they want their own wee club or do they want to create an atmosphere?
    I really donít want to sound like I have got a problem with the guys in the singing section, but you have to say it as you see it.

    I agree with your 1st few sentences. Maybe someone can remind me of the move to the FF5 for them
    I certainly donít think itís the best area for them, but think they wanted a spot behind the goals?
    Am I right in thinking they started in the East quite high up, then moved down low?
    Maybe someone from the section can clarify the reasons behind the moves
    We need to fix it, as the East has now lost its atmosphere

    We should be encouraging more like minded people to join them in the North upper rather than a returning them to the East. Things like the banner last night and the display earlier in the season would have less impact from the East IMO. Clubs across the continent have successful singing sections in their upper tiers behind the goals. However Rome wasnít built in a day and it will grow organically and improve over time.

    It annoys me the singing section is in the FF upper. It should be in the East stand.

    I seem to recall that being the case. Surely they should have been right in the middle of that ****. Ultras donít move from the centre of the action, they are the centre of it.
    Where are you boys?

    Hereís how you could look at it.

    The relocation of Since1875 from the East to the North was never intended to be a short term initiative. It is part of a longer term plan to develop a young group in a stand occupied by younger kids. And in the medium to long term I am confident that strategy will pay off.

    The regulars in the Famous Five are starting to identify with the group and against Hearts the whole stand got up on their feet a couple of times. As did the West. We are on the road to an all singing stadium and not just during Sunshine on Leith.

    The other critical role that Since1875 perform is at away games, where donít forget we are normally sited behind a goal. The march to the pink bus shelter adds an additional dimension.

    When the group first left the East it created a bit of a void but with the extra season tickets sold this season it has filled up again. By the end of the season Iím pretty confident there will be enough momentum to create a nucleus of hardcore singers to start the songs and the opportunity to fundraise for a couple of drums.

    Maybe the guys in the top rows of S43 will be pleased to save their hands from blisters caused by hammering on the back cladding?
