Chairboys fan Kyle Drummond has spoken to Phil Catchpole for the Ringing The Blues podcast about his wish to see the terrace become a ‘formidable’ force of unity, with a community of Wanderers fans pulling together as much as possible to support the team’s efforts on the pitch.
The club’s decision to suspend the use of musical instruments in the stadium – to ease tensions caused by recent displays of anti-social behaviour – has sparked a debate as to how fans supporters might be able to maximise their own enjoyment and spur their side on to victory at the same time.
Kyle stepped forward on social media to prompt discussions about how the terrace community could work together to devise new chants, and arrange flag and banner displays, to crank up the atmosphere even further after a run of five straight home league wins so far this season.
“I want the terrace to be a big blue wall of noise,” he told Phil's podcast. “I don’t think there should be a divide between the left side, right side, middle or whatever – there should just be one terrace, one community, all on the same wavelength and making it formidable when the team are attacking towards that end.
“People should be able to come along and feel like they belong in the terrace, and that they want to make noise and get behind the team. We all want the team to win. We can all have a say in what songs are sung, and we can bring flags and banners and make it a wall of noise.
“I like the idea of having a meet-up before a game, and getting together to share ideas. People can get hold of me on Twitter and maybe we can get a WhatsApp group going, to come up with ideas and go from there.
“We want as many people to get behind it as possible.”
