I've never known the turf so full of nerves as it is from minute one ...:(

It must transpond to the players cus it put me on edge ...

I can't understand it ! Surely it's not my imagination ...?

Everyones taking selfies, the game is irrelevant.

You're not allowed to use the we word Wade it makes you sound too important, like dear old maggie.

Most folk are too busy taking down notes for Player ratings and Rate the Ref, or finding faults in other Burnley fans to be singing owt.

That's my experience too BOT, need to lighten up some on here.

We seem to have prolonged periods of play where there is very little to get excited about, fortunately these are broken up by bits of decent play, last season all we got was the boring stuff, a blend of defensive style and attacking play seems to do the trick for the team but not the fans. I dont think its all nervousness just frustration when the team fails to perform as we know it can.

No you are not imagining it and it is a funny one when you consider how well we are doing. I don't think it is down to either nerves or frustration. I wish more would get vocally behind the team. Maybe we need a warm up man before kick off with a microphone getting the crowd going

I thought the atmosphere at home to Huddersfield was brilliant, three good Burnley goals, three good points and a nice tea cooked by the missus when I got home - perfect for me! The noise at Wigan was awesome...

its just the way modern football is.

away fans are nearly always more vocal than home fans at every ground.

it tends to take a really big game to turn that around.

I remember the longside days, walking up the stairs to the longside, it used to stink of pi$$, but the atmosphere was electric.

I do miss them days, no hopes of any success and nobody bothered.

The 5hite design of two of the three home stands doesnt help one jot,you need gates of 16000+ to get a modicum of atmos going consistently over the duration of a match

Ooh goodie, another thread complaining about a lack of support from the fans. Must be at least a week since the last one. Just need someone to have a go at teachers to complete the double.

As for the Longside, I remember lots of games where the atmosphere was pretty much as it is now. Let's not overromanticise it.

I remember standing on the revered Longside with my fiancee watching a 0-0 draw with Hartlepool in the ****in' rain and you could have heard a pin drop.

From one with many memories of standing on the longside on good and bad days I can say that if we had it now, in the league position we are in, the atmosphere would be electric and a hundred times better than it is now. No question.
