I hear this getting (tiresomely) trotted out all the time! Maybe you can provide a league table of good drummers - starting obviously with the one armed guy from Def Leppard, Pete Best...down to Stevenage, Blackburn and Ringo Starr?

Drums are a s***e utter embarrassment at footie...nowt to do with some percieved level of competant skill. End of!

Having experienced the orchestrated drummers at Monchengladbach for four years as a STH I can 'trot it out' from experience that they were excellent alongside, not instead of, the wide variety of songs and chants.  
The majority of German clubs had the same, the atmosphere at all Bundesliga Stadia is outstanding.

Ours is usually a very poor quality due to the lack of fabreze.

The Greeks create the best atmosphere per person. I spent some time in Greece but then I had a wash.

Yes, and having been in Latvia for eight years and a formative member of FK Riga's fan group (smoke bombs, flags, flares - never a drum) and been watching Torino all over Italy for years, will repeat...
Drums are an utter embarrassment - as are German fans who show little originality, in bouncing in unison ( when told to!) meeting in a square and waiting to be wrapped up by OB and marched to the stadium...or the great Yellow Wall singing 'You'll never walk alone' zzzzz!

Ugh, just had a 'wish I was there' moment. The guy giving the V's to the camera looks like he's a right lad. Bet he's a character.

They do still have them annoying clappers at Leicester games, certainly everytime they've been on the telly this season. And before you respond, I have no interest in you, or your family.

As the person who was banging on the stand at Sc***horpe and the person who bags on the stand at home games I’d rather have a drum as it would be easier to do. Also a drum doesn’t have to be hit as hard as you can hit it so you could do it quieter

If you can't bang a _____...bang a drum
I think the song goes!

One thing I have noticed about our fan base is that (no disrespect meant) we have quite an old fan base. If you look around st Sixfields and away games there aren't that many mid teen to mid 20 ish fans. So it's not really surprising that there isn't an appetite for things like a Drum to make an appearance.

I say give it a go as it can't hurt and who knows it could be a good thing.

I think this was in response to comments about a drum being rubbish if it's just hit as hard as it can be with no rhythm.

Little puzzling but...how can you say they are 'often' at the Kingpower, stating you went 'once to a friendly'?
Much of my family are Leicester...those that go will tell you otherwise about the frequency (and certainly use) of said silly implements!

Not that it remotely matters, but to answer your question given that it implies inaccuracy in my post, I also have family who attend (also the reason I was there on the aforementioned day) and unfortunately I have had to bear the audible proof, as they have brought home the clackers on numerous occasions since the Championship year. I used the pre-season friendly as it was the most prominent example of said madness. Maybe it depends where you sit, although to be fair I haven't seen any return recently.

I was there last Friday - unfortunately - and the clappers were out in full force.

Have to agree with you about our fan base,that’s why I feel ntfc have to work harder to entice the east stand to be be sold out more ,for example perhaps selling tickets at a reduced price to a more younger supporter.

Sixfields is too pathetic to even consider beating  large percussion instruments, but in keeping with the tiny stands and our zero growth policy, maybe a bongo drum or a tambourine might be more suitable.
