Whats happened to the PA system ?

Post by IJM » Sat Oct 06, 2018 7:51 pm

Standing in my usual position in the Ellerslie today and I couldn't hear a thing from our useless PA system. It was ok last season so whats happened to it ?
I could just about make out Dave Thomas, Don Shanks and Frank Mclintock at HT, but I hadn't a clue what they were discussing and couldn't make out who else was out there - or why.

I hope the club get it fixed.

Think yourself lucky ! I sit right beneath one of the pairs of horns in SA Road stand and it was louder and more distorted than ever today. Real rubbishy pop “music” of the vilest sort. Why do people who organise these things think that everybody likes this stuff. Still, at least we can hear the announcements.

although as a law abiding fan, I was sitting in Ellerslie - I have to agree the system quality was awful today.

I don't recall any issues in other games this season so I'm guessing a gremlin, or possibly water ( I seem to remember there being some rain around today..) had got into the system today!
This time we'll get it right - just believe! :wink:

Agreed, couldn't make any sense of it in Ellerslie. I thought they said they were introducing Joan Collins at one point.

I thought it sounded more like “ I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received and that consequently this country is at war with Germany. “

Absolutely dreadful on Saturday. I think it was a one off though, I don’t recall it being that bad for any other games this season...

Don didn't say anything, did he ? And Frank is Scotch (like Stewart Lee), so it was probably just his impenetrable accent rather than the PA.
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?

Frank is Scottish. Scotch is an alcoholic drink. Sorry, I'm beginning to sound like the long departed Davef. :wink:
