When we left the Dell for St. Mary's...... 20:22 - Oct 8 with 773 viewsTripleNiemi

...did we suddenly spawn a new breed of fan / mong, or had this already come about with the inception of the PL and sky? Reading some of the drivel on here......

Gao loves the passion...…….

Depends what you want at a football match. Some people seem to like the current atmosphere and crowd more than the Dell/ early St Mary’s years. Only the last 3 years that it’s got truly dire I think.

The early days at st Mary’s the Northam and itchen north were great, non stop singing, good variety of songs and mainly young blokes, it started to change when we got back up, the northam became more mixed and the itchen north has pretty much died a death.

One reason for that is because there were far fewer away fans in the Northam when we were in the lower divisions so it was more like a proper home end. But, remember when we played Man United in the FA Cup in 2009 and the Northam was packed with thousands of United fans? We might just as well have been the away team. That wasn't so good, was it?

Although it was still nothing like the Dell in the late 70s, the atmosphere for the Liverpool game at St Mary's this season was very good, although for Chelsea it was abysmal.

A lot of it is to do with the general mood among the fans about how happy they are with the way the club is being run and how well the team is performing. The loss to a ten man team at Tottenham seemed to sour the mood for the Chelsea game. But, even the Chelsea fans didn't really get going until the 2nd half when they were assured of victory.

The Northam End should be a all Saints fans end but we carry on surrendering more than half of it every time a big club comes to town. Until it’s addressed we will always be on the back foot so to speak.

I think the main reason for the poor atmosphere at St Mary's is the hopelessness of the situation. We will either just survive or go down - hardly a prospect to get the fans excited. We know most games will be a defeat and in some ways it's boring and not very exciting because the team is cr@p. We know that we won't buy any better players so it's just rubbish. The premier league is also becoming commercialised and the clubs don't care about the fans. We all know it.

Think I read somewhere we'd won 15 out of the last 61 PL games at SMS, if continued you don't need to be a genius to see that is relegation form, so confidence is obviously low on and off the pitch which leads to a subdued crowd along with some of the fruitcakes and half n half scarf merchants we now seem to attract who weren't sighted when we were in the lower leagues.

But lets be honest, the atmosphere at the other 19 PL grounds is also rubbish, and about half of them win more than they lose.

We had plenty of dinlos when we were at the Dell too, just a smaller concentration.

The state of the sanitised PL is the main culprit here but a lot of the blame can be free streaming that (initially, before they clamped down) kept people in the pubs and now many are 'out of the habit' and just watch (if they still want to watch) for nothing on laptops, etc.

That win ratio is amazing and unfortunately is what creates the apathy. Back at the Dell we would lose only 2 or 3 at home at the most and it was our away form that meant we were generally fighting the big R word

Yup agree with that, in the years we were out of the top flight football changed massively, probably as much as the change from post Euro 96 until relegation.

Social media, vlogging, "bantz" etc. became the norm, so it was only a matter of time after our promotion it'd bleed into our support.

The thing that gets me is just how quickly, and how completely, it's happened. In about 4 years i reckon we've gone from normal lads to absolute f*cking mongs and mouth breathers who want to video themselves and barely sing.

What's worse is the cancer has now crept into our away support too, personally i blame the Saints Travel lot for that as they've encouraged more of the mongs to go, the kind that take teddy bears to away games or wear Indiana Jones hats and film themselves singing in the concourse but don't sing in the stand.

I was a Dinnlo at the dell.. But a young noisey pissed one. At St Mary's when I can afford to go I'm an old Dinnlo who doesn't sit down till half time.

When we were good, the atmosphere is good. When we are crap the atmosphere is crap.

Not everyone is a vlogger but that stuff spreads the word globally , you can't stop it every club has them and not just in Prem. Them down the road even has them.

The cünts getting paid ten's of thousands a week jogging around doing fückall puts people off cheering,singing or even attending games

I prefer cup games as its cheaper for a start (until u get to Wembley then it's Woah!). Especially the later rounds when it's win or bust.

Atmosphere when we had good players doing good things getting good results, was fantastic . Bring those days back.
