...I think that N. (part time Drummer Boy/full time undertaker) has had a Charlton season ticket for a while.I do remember towards the end of last season a collection being taken round for "a new drum" when the other one had fallen down the terracing and broke.
Whne I next run in to him I will ask him the position but I am sure whe will be at The Valley this week.
Having said that I have seen the drum with someone else from time to time so perhaps it does get shared a bit.
As Toyah would say ...its a mystery!

Can't see a drum of that standard staying at the valley long.

Charlton will make a big noise about being a big club etc etc and not wanting to let go of their prized assts , and then flog it to Chelsea ...


Up the Fleet...

I think my criticisms at the time were just - we were in deep trouble.

However, full credit to Andy for turning things round - the team is stronger compared to last season & whilst I'll admit I was wrong in my fears, I am also glad to be wrong!



Well said FF. About sums it up for me too!

C'mon u reds!!!!!!!!

Well...may I suggest your PA person plays "Distant Drums" by Jim Reeves at half time?


Who remembers that chant from the sevevnties/eighties..

"I hear the sound
of distant bums,
over there, over there.

And do they smell
like f*****g hell!!
over there, over there!"

Oh those heady days of non-seated stadiums come flooding back........

what about other instruments they all make noise so what about replacing the drum with something else to get the crowd going?

Thanks for your offer but I really don't think that you playing the spoons will create much of an atmosphere. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

If you hadn't been officiating in some scouts' football match then you would have noticed that the drum was in attendance anyway.....

Aaaagh! But imagine 1200 fans playing the spoons. Now that would be impressive...if not intimidating for the opposition.

Hmmm, the chances of our beloved stewards letting 1200 people armed with bottles on the terraces are pretty slim in my book! <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Of course it was, I was only making a tenuous link to a similar chinking noise really.
A truly frightening New York gang that would've been: "Come out to play-yay...'Roll out the barrel' with us. We'll play spoons, you can get on that skiffle board!"
