1. Pre match fan zone.
2. Safe standing
3. Move union bears to the middle front of SJ. (Means they spread to more people and front and centre of the hard camera)
4. Expand the union bears.
5. Safe standing at front of broomy and Copland
6. Do away with the horrific ibrox DJ, this bits n pieces etc nonsense has to go ASAP.
Well said.

We as supporters need to be on our A game roaring the side on every time the team turn out from start to finish. This could make the vital difference in us lifting title 55 this season
Agreed but we need the right conditions. Not all fans want to sing so we need to make it easy for those that do to get together. Its not easy trying to sing when those around dont want to join in.

Perhaps rover tickets would help for certain areas like GF, CF and BF.

The gaffer definitely finds this important, and has said numerous times now he wants the stadium to be louder as he knows it can be, it's just generally its quiet.

You can’t force at atmosphere, it happens organically when the team are performing and we are successful. Not everyone wants to be a cheerleader, I sit and watch the game and end up engrossed.

Atmosphere takes care of itself in the right set of circumstances. The players job is to entertain us not the other way about. While I appreciate Stevie G and his call to arms after a hard fought game , its them that are ultimately on thousands to perform in the cold and rain not me.

I relaxed after the third today, as most did I think.

you don't think the gaffer had anything at all to do with the ibrox atmophere yesterday? there's plenty of ways to better Ibrox atmosphere imo surprised you said this considering whole of ibrox rely on the union bears to better the atmosphere

Brilliant post and would guarantee Ibrox bouncing once again .

A wee rumour doing the rounds that Mr Gerrard himself has asked for the UB to be more prominent and the singing section expanded . Don’t know how true .

Went to the LAFC v NY Red Bulls game last night (finished 4-2 to LA)...must say the North End safe standing section which houses 3200 supporters from within 9 supporters groups under one banner called the 3252 at the Banc of California stadium has amped up the football match day experience here ....its non stop drums, flags, banners, smoke and singing the whole game...

here's a video of Vela making it 3-2 from the spot last night..

Tbf that’s decent from American standards but they’re trying too hard to be like European Ultras.

That’s what I love about Rangers, we have a traditional songbook with European ultra style chants mixed in.

A full safe standing section like that filled with RSC’s and the Union Bears front and centre is what’s needed.

SG once again highlighted how much the fans help the team when Ibrox is rocking and despite this being brought up by him so often there's still those that for whatever reason don't join in, feel like in this thread we should discuss in ways to get everyone involved in Ibrox atmosphere and discuss what stops those that don't join etc and posting song lyrics to songs you feel lack involvement from fans as well as talk about ways to have other stands rocking in sync with UB (for those that don't like the UB if Ibrox didn't rely on UB they wouldn't need to lead the way)
Sing Rangers songs.

Certainly think the U.B.s are the key to a better atmosphere,Safe standing,increased numbers and a more prominent position,
They might not be everybody's cup tea but when they lead others tend to follow,
More colour would help the concourses are very drab the new U.B. logo is an example of brightening things up probably more to do with match day experience than atmosphere.

aye same people that moan about UB and make nae attempt at bettering the atmosphere don't seem to realize that there the reason ibrox relys on UB

I
prematch is a great way to build tension and atmosphere and should be the focus before every game imo
Yep agree with this, Fanzone should be about getting the blood pumping, getting smiles on faces and people generally excited for the game ahead. Great opportunity to get the news songs taking off and also provide some videos for others.

Close the gates 15-30 minutes before kick off so all fans are in. Show some of our best and most important goals on the screens. Play uplifting Rangers anthems. Announce the team using Christian names and let the fans shout the surname.
do any other clubs do the first name second name thing? cause that's a shout tbh

The argument about people not joining in, although valid, it's not so simple as nobody wanting to join in. I was in BF4 for many years and share the frustration of singing your hearts out to support the team and the rest of the stands mute.

I am now GR7 and really want to have a sing song and support the team, but when you are isolated it's not so easy. It really has to spread from UB along BF234 and BR into enclosure and Govan. It is really is vital especially getting Broomloan front.

Good songs also help. I have noticed Liverpool singing is 60/70% of their newer songs. People love new songs and they have some great new songs that the fans want to join in with.

I have said before. UB hold all the aces and should try and get a dialogue with the rest of the support to try and get the stadium going. I genuinely don't know if they are interested or not, because it seems to me there is 'radio silence' for UB members on FF. ( Which to an extent understand because getting involved in arguments on here is senseless) But they could have an official spokesman, well I think so anyway :rolleyes:

A big problem is coz we’re al jakeballs who love a drink and would rather sit in a pub till 5 mins before kick off. Walk up get in late go do 5 pees beofre half time the time 60 mins comes every one is chocking on a pint and leaves!

To beat this get the pints served in the ground With bouncing tunes/rangers tunes on from12/1 o’clock till the teams come out.

Fans zone staring 11/2.30 same idea tunes on then go to the game half 2 ish.

If there were no restrictions and everyone behaved civilly:

- safe standing the full Copland and Broomloan front
- alcohol available
- select bands before kick off
- bin the dj warm up axt
- bin the songs after goals are scored
- removed designated seating. Tickets for areas only to allow mates to sit together.
- maybe some cheerleaders.
- regular and interesting half time entertainment

Just off the top of my head. FWIW only one is outwith our control

Maybe if I didn't get moaned at for me and my 9 year old for joing in by everyone around then it would be great.

Here come the 'crap singing' puns but I'm serious.

All around the stadium it's like death bar UB and if you dare say a word you get told to shut up

Said it on here many a time

I think if the UB got moved to the centre like they wanted and safe standing was introduced it would make the broomy rocking.

That would surely get the 3 other stands to join in when they see that.

I sit in the mainstand and I find that a lot of people around me don’t really join in and maybe start a song but fade away after a few lines and don’t keep it going .

Good post.

You've just explained why we need flexible approaches to seating such as rover tickets. The alternative could be separate areas for singers and non singers. Some think booing players helps them perform better so it might be an idea to have 3 separate areas as follows.

Broomloan for safe standing and singing with rover tickets for all.

Govan Stand for non singers with names on seats and no movement.

Copland Stand for those that believe booing is best. Names on seats again with no movement allowed.

What do you think?

We need an “official singing section” which should be safe standing. Preferably not below the family section!

We should have a family section in Copland front and a “quiet” section for all the moaners in Copland rear.

Broomloan and Govan front should be standing and singing section. Govan rear sitting but allowed noise same as the main and club deck.

Would give everyone an option I believe?

Edit: might not be enough seats to satisfy all the moaner though!

liverpool have created a platform with boss nights for people to write and learn songs, rangers having something similar would be decent just call it every saturday etc, seen something being planned on here before

tottenham have this massive open space bar it's open even after the game
something similar without the window on to the pitch obviously to stop any alkys loitering that can't prioritize the fitba over the drink
