Makes me uneasy to learn we’re losing (very) longstanding fans over a drum - particularly given the fragile state of the football club.

There has to be a compromise somehow that keeps everyone reasonably happy.

Surely ear plugs are the answer.. everyone's happy

Could they not move their seats. It’s not as if the stadium is full.

It's not even a loud drum and I sit half way along that side.

Maybe drumming in the 60s style of The Brian Jonestown Massacre would take the old guys back to their youth??

I first went to Boghead in 1979 and there was, at times, some serious violence, especially when Hearts turned up. So these guys weren't put off by seeing some guys getting seven shades of shit kicked out of them, but are now calling off because of a primary school kid hitting a not very loud drum?? There's plenty of bowling clubs around for these guys to enjoy their silence and the rest of us can get on with a, hopefully, noisy atmosphere with plenty of drumming.

The drum is clearly audible in Crosslet Road  on match days.

The violence though wasn't tolerated or encouraged by the club. The comparison is spurious. 

My estrangement and that of my daughter from the club is complete and permanent. That decision has been made much easier by the comments on here. One from a guy to whom I have been quite helpful to on a couple of occasions who thinks I'm being a "dick" . The ad hominem nature of the insults is disappointing but in the end, not surprising. I shouldn't have brought the issue up again.

Apologies.

I'm sure Wilf has covered this before. His (and his daughter's?) medical condition is impacted badly by the frequency and vibrations etc. I don't think it's purely about the noise level. Could be wrong, though.

Hope it can be sorted somehow. It's getting the balance between attracting new, young supporters whilst retaining long-standing, loyal fans.

Wilf, For different reasons , I find drumming at games really annoying. Just as at the cup final a guy next me had some sort of trumpet which I really wanted to turn into a suppository. Do you still play with the band?.. If so how do you deal with the drumming? It's not a big issue with me as I dont get to many games

No apology required. I, for one, very much enjoy these debates/banter and it's much better than the usual stuff about who we should sign and who plays better in what position.

If your geriatric fans can’t cope with a couple of kids playing a drum you best steer well clear when the shawfield boys are in town!

Football is much more enjoyable with bigger crowds and a bit of atmosphere. What I’ve read on the last few pages here is pathetic at best.

Being on a fast track to league 2 will probably suit you to be honest, most matches there have an atmosphere similar to the moon.

So is the sound of the fans, road traffic etc. Sound will travel a long distance if not interrupted on the way. The issue here seems to be loudness (essentially sound intensity) and that drum is most certainly not loud.

What? Wilf who is agitated by the sound of drumming plays in a band? This thread is growing arms and legs.

I haven't called you a dick and I've always thanked you for your help.

I'd suggest that it would be time well spent if we had a drummer who could teach the kids how to actually keep to a tempo and rhythm. They're enthusiastic and I'm not knocking them for it but a wee bit of practice wouldn't go amiss.

Kyle Wilkie will be next apparently

No idea if you're saying that to move conversation on, or if there's some truth in it - but given your record with ITK info I'll run with it.

I'd be happy with that. He looked good against us for Airdrie last season, and I've been hoping we might chuck something his way since last summer. Compared to some of our other signings he's practically a marquee name too!
