You say that but when there is 20,000 people in there, noise is coming from all over really. I'm trying to think what the lowest attendances were that I've been to at the Riverside. Sampdoria friendly years back must have been a few thousand. There was an FA Cup replay against Wimbledon in January that didn't have too many there. Some early round cup games obviously as well. The atmosphere is usually rubbish and those attendances would have all been higher than a couple of thousand.
Respectfully disagree. Two thousand people make most of the noise in the Riverside, so if we just let Red Faction in, I doubt the players would notice any difference in atmosphere compared to a pre-COVID matchday!
There are some really weird things happening in my web browser - and as I typed that sentence, I suddenly got an 'advert' from Sky which I couldn't click back from, and had to close the browser to get rid of.
On full-screen, ads are making the on-page content appear less than half a page wide, but when I have the OB forum half-screen in Chrome (on a Windows 10 PC), I have to scroll left and right to read every post.
The uncancellable pop-up ads are also getting quite annoying. Screen grab attached for reference. (I am a Sky broadband customer, BTW)
