This was quite funny. Was a great atmosphere all round that game - some great banter between the sets of supporters, especially the infamous shirt removal incident! Probably the best atmosphere I've seen for a fair while.The Pompey announcer, fairly enthusiastically, proclaimed they had gone one nil up after a freekick was curled into the side netting. I believe some music started playing. after a few painful seconds he had issue an apology. Was barracked by both sets of fans for the rest of the game.
We had a BBC film crew turn up at Adams Park one time to record the title track to some new programme, I can't recall whether it was some tacky show about footballer WAGS or about dubious football financial shenanigans but the title was "Spend It Like Beckham".
Anyway. So the BBC wanted to record a football crowd singing that title, and chose the Adams Park choir as their recording artists.
Our stadium announcer, who had all the self-awareness and the exact vocal tone of Alan Partridge, explained what was required, and then burst into tuneless "song" to show all of us what to do.
Minor problem: he was met by a wall of silence, slowly progressing through embarrassed laughter, followed by outright jeers.
To give the announcer his due, he tried on his own for a good 2 minutes (which felt like an excruciating eternity) before giving up the ghost, and the Beeb crew sodding off empty handed.
Northampton a few weeks back.
They played a clapping noise over the PA system that we could hear in the away end. They also said to be careful when exiting the ground because there were puddles.

There were also people in the crowd waving money at Amir when he was fielding near the boundary.
Not our PA system, but apparently at Kettering a few years ago now when we played there, the then Chairman Imran Ladak took over the tannoy and said at the end of the game after they had 2 players (justifiably) sent off:
"Today's man-of-the-match, sponsored by Specsavers, is the ref".
Cue laughter from the Luton fans in the stands.
Not sure what to make of this to be honest. There was no 'fix' on - it was a newspaper sting after they had a tip off that some Pakistani players were allegedly complicit in taking corrupt payments. They fell for it.There were also people in the crowd waving money at Amir when he was fielding near the boundary.
Notice that nobody has mentioned our announcer at Sixfields? Probably because he doesn't know how to use the microphone that no one can hear/understand what he is saying. We all thought that it was something wrong with the system until John Motson was a guest at a game and was invited to say a few words over the same mike, we heard and understood every single word!
