I must be in the minority that actually likes it.
Creates a little bit of atmosphere.
Don’t mind it one bit at the beginning of a match...I’ve heard worse. Got to admit - not a fan of music after a goal though.
We didn't underestimate them, we just didn't think they were that good.

Still can't beat the Ole ole ole ole song that was played before the teams entered the field in the 80s.
Stood behind Ray Wilkie for years. Best education I ever had.

I still hanker after the pre-match music of the 1950s: something about "rolling along like the rumblin' tumblin' tumbleweed" and Mexicali Rose. They don't make music like that any more ;)

Oh, and the music when the team came out of the dressing room was "Entry of the Gladiators"!

Halcyon days.

Not bothered what we play when they run out as we have no real tradition or club song etc. Music after goals can get in the bin, just next to drums etc.

Bring back the days of a brass band marching on the pitch before a game and at half time. Perhaps playing "Glad all over" (which was one of the first 7" singles I bought, 6/8d from Kelly's) to keep the manager happy?

If we have to hear glad all over after every goal. Let's hope we hear it 2 or 3 times a game. Come on you bluebirds

Music after goals is definitely naff! I hate it. Another import from USA. Next we will get those machines that spurt flame into the air and blast shards of silver paper all over the place.

Yeah to be fair I was referring to the start.
Never notice it too much when we score due to being that delighted we have scored :scarf:

Haha brilliant that's the one. Used to make the 10 year old me happy when it came on Tuesday nights with my dad.

My preference is no music after goals. Too American, and therefore cheap and nasty and not in keeping with what we are doing.
Not bothered enough to make a song and dance (no pun intended) about it though.
Music before hand is too loud IMHO

I think the music choice covers a wide range of ages and is OK as it is. :)
