Would it be possible to make alternate black and white sections big enough to be held over each section of the west stand to create what would look like a giant scarf extending all along the stand?

We wanted to do something like that before, similar to what you see in South America! But sadly surfing flags isn't permitted. Here's the stadium policy 

Quote

Policy on Flags & Banners

 

This policy document includes what flags and banner are permitted

with guidance on the positioning and display of same.

Subject to the approval of the police St Mirren FC permits the

display of non offensive football related flags and banners

(Please Note that Crowd surfing flags/banners are not

permitted.) at Saint Mirren Park subject to the following

provisions:

 

All flags and banners should be made from fire resistant material.

 

We reserve the right to insist on a * fire safety certificate for

flags/banners of any size. Flags/banners when hung must not

cover stadium signage/notices nor should they be hung

above vomitory entrances.

 

This limit on space will also limit

the size of flags/banners anything above 8ft by 4 ft should

be referred to the club.

 

* Very large flags/banners are

likely to require a fire safety certificate as they pose a

significant risk to other supporters Health and Safety.

 

No spectators health or safety will be compromised in arranging

the display of such flags/banners (i.e. climbing on seats or

climbing on parts of the structure of the stadium e.g. the

metalwork at the rear of stands to secure such flags/

banners is not permitted)

 

A spectator accepts responsibility for said flag/banner ( where

possible this spectator should be seated near to the banner) The

steward stand supervisor will then note a seat number for the

spectator responsible for each banner so that this person can be

contacted if the flag/banner requires for any reason to be repositioned

or removed during the match.

They were silent until almost half time.Their 1st chant of the Billy Boys was met around me with comments like "who wakened them up?" and "I forgot they were here". 

 

I agree. Noisy as the game started and then silenced for 45 minutes as Saints took the game to Killie and showed that for 45 minutes there wasn't much between the two sides. Killie came out second half fired up and their support responded. Good afternoon's football.

The song is the Billy Boys.They may change the words but it's still the Billy Boys.

 

It was the Ayrshire Killie Boys. 

Each Club is  permitted their own version. 

Hello Hello We Are The Buddie Boys.

Smashing rendition of Paper Roses at the end - still must go down as one of the strangest songs for a football club to pick as their own.

Doakes. At football matches in Turkey and some other countries there is a guy at the front of each section who leads or coordinates or conducts (choose as you wish) the singing or chanting in that area. The crowds make one heck of a noise.

Whatever happened to the huge black white and red one from the northbank that used to make regular appearances ?

Probably failed the strict (pointless) fire safety requirements.

Not if our stand is acoustically pish.

30 away fans can drown us out

Na. We need aconductor out front leading the singing at each section.  Simple.  Try it out for half a dozen games to see how it works.

Cheaper than taking a taxi ! The guys lead theantics of the crowd in the area they are facing.  Works brilliantly. 

Alternatively put a drummer in every section. 

Which will drown out the singing also.

Get the W7 dudes shiftit to the Family Stand.

They are wasted where they are.

Drummer and W7 spread into each section. Drum,  flags, singers.  One of them conducts the rest of the folks in that section to sing.  Solves the problem.

Anyone know what ever happened to the massive Sammy Browns saltire I used to see on Scotland away trips. It was a big stoater. Instead of saying "Remember Bannockburn 1314", I think it said something like "Remember Paisley 1877".

Used to fill me with pride watching it passed up many stands in foreign lands.
