That bloody air raid siren 14:11 - Sep 19 with 1509 viewsAsa

Given the FA are so pedantic about a number of things don’t affect the match at all, it seems weird that they allow things like the PA blasting out noise as a team takes a corner or even towels all over the ground and players wasting 30 seconds drying it when they are winning with a few mins to go.

The towel thing has always bothered me. You don’t see free kick takers drying the ball on a wet night so they kick it properly! But players can towel the ball on a dry day when the ball won’t even be remotely wet. Huh? Cheltenham was a dry day. They must have wasted 5 minutes with that towel. It’s not like the half time sprinklers were that much of a factor.

Didn’t say anything after we lost at Cheltenham in case it came across as bitterness. But we won yesterday and yes players should be able to cope with noise or ‘intimidation’ or whatever but I’m surprised it’s allowed.

Still better than Fleetwood’s goal music which I can’t find a legitimate reason to ban.

The air raid siren is so tinpot and pathetic, I’m surprised Reading don’t do it. When we play Cheltenham at home we should be very accommodating hosts and have a supply of towels ready for them to use - some smeared with dog s5it, others with acid.

Smeared with LSD? I like that idea. That'd be real entertainment.

We’d still manage to concede

Thought the air raid siren was different and fun.

It's a distraction tactic, and as has been said already, somewhat tinpot.

Be good if all the fans chanted

"can you feel it!" after the siren.

Don't worry I said similar during the game against Cheltenham, it's bizarre that it is allowed, you see yellows given for not taking goal kicks quick enough, but feel free to go and grab a towel, wipe the ball, have a cuppa, line your throw up, gain 10 yards first, wipe ball again, then throw.

Never be afraid to share your thoughts.

Exactly this.

It’s strange that one blatant form of time wasting is allowed whilst others are deemed bookable offences.

No need for the towels. Ben Tozzer, who does the long throws for Cheltenham has been sold to Ryan Reynold's Wrexham.

I think it’s bizarre that none of our players ‘dealt’ with the towels. Grab one and put in in the away end, run off with it. Watching the opposition gain advantage after advantage was doing my head in.

BTW Lincoln have used the siren for years, it’s part of the ‘Bomber County’ identify. It’s not a distraction any more than shouting ‘woooooah’ at a keeper taking a kick

It's 106 miles to Portman Road, we've got a full tank of gas, half a round of Port Salut, it's dark... and we're wearing blue tinted sunglasses.

Fleetwood's goal music is exceptionally irritating. I was imagining an away game at Fleetwood on the last day of the season when a point would mean the difference between relegation and staying up for the visiting team. Fleetwood score in the dying seconds on injury time to take the lead, then the gentle strains of Captain Pugwash drift across the stadium.
