Do you know that they were deeply moved?

I wouldn't have been, if a relative of mine had been shown after three others, where the desired effect of a minutes' applause had been diluted.

I thought the disruption was apparent today, some Burnley players looked bemused waiting to ko after a Chelsea goal and a ripple of applause went round the Turf. Surely we do not need that, there were enough distractions today.

And the club certainly doesn't need the money.

It’s properly tinpot, even more so when we are in the money league, charging fans for the privilege of showing them on the screen, invariably from some drunken holiday in Benidorm.

Use the screen for football purposes and at a push commercials for the proper revenue.
Those commercial adverts will usually be between personal messages so get even more exposure and therefore we can charge more for those businesses to be on there.

I saw my old company on the scree today just after hampstead appeared on there. Never seen them on prior to today.

Hardly surprising:
17,000 regular/season ticket holding fans x 14 days between games = 238,000 days/652 years, divide that by an average of say a 75-year life expectancy and you're'd statistically expect 8-9 supporters to pass away between each home game of the season; probably the higher of the two as more people tend to die in winter than in summer.

It'll cause a problem if two of them are the same age.

My grandmother was 94 when she died. What if there hadn't been enough injury time? ;)

Mine was 106 so would have had to wait for a cup game with extra time.

Clock stops at 90 regardless of how much added time


You’d need a cup game that goes to extra time but you’d be best doing it the first game we have otherwise you’ll have to wait till the next season :lol:

You seem to know more about it than the club are prepared to say. It’s done by the club’s marketing department with no suggestion of it having anything to do with the community.

Sorry, and I don’t mean to cause any offence, but that today was embarrassing and downright ridiculous.

when leicester had their game against us, it commemorated their owners passing a year ago, thousands of scarves left by their club for the fans to display a communal grief. It looked orchestrated to the point of mawkish. this isn't what respect is supposed to be about.
Just a peek at the news most days shows how much chaos and devastation there is worldwide, anonymous tragedies for countless thousands.
Corporate displays of mourning are shallow, and meaningless.
encouraging strangers to rise and fall from their seats at specific times has become facile, let's get back to something more real, and let those that are in genuine pain express themselves appropriatley and with dignity.In private.

Let’s say there are 30000 lifelong clarets.
Let’s say we all live an average of 100.
That is still 300 dying every year.
We only have 20 home games. (Rounding to make the maths easier).
It still means we should average 15 announcements each and every match.

It is why the bigger clubs cant even think of doing it.

Also why we should stop doing it.

I can understand why the club go along with it, can you imagine the criticism they say ‘no’

Remember is the fans who request for the message to be displayed and the club don’t instruct anyone to clap.

I’m not a fan of these minutes applauses either, I think they should only be given for the passing of very young supporters and cases where someone connected to the is very ill in hospital or coping with grief. It’s a case of showing solidarity and support.

Is it appropriate to have applause for everyone who has passed away? I think a mention in the programme is more apt.

That’s my opinion anyway.

It was even more farcical than expected yesterday and even ended up annoying some people when we were on the third one. Agreed it’s not really the club’s fault. A lot of the well followed social media accounts share these applause appeals so it sort of just stems from there.

Just seen this thread and it does make me thankful that I gave the game a miss yesterday. I’ve long since thought there seems more births, marriages and deaths on the Turf screen than there are down at the registry office.

One game a year for memorials is a nice touch, and another day for Remembrance Sunday. I am of course hugely sympathetic for those losing loved ones at other times, but there is a time and a place and Turf match day isn’t it.

Having to explain to a very young child why everyone is clapping is not what that child needs to be thinking about. The club have to give their heads a wobble, and while they are at it, they should stop all the birthday announcements, adverts and other stuff. We’re the only club to do it to this degree and given the clubs current income it looks cheap, pointless and distracting from the game. It seems I only have a 1 in 5 chance of looking up and seeing the team sheet when I need to.
