Half-time announcement at Sarries game

Half-time announcement at Sarries game

Could somebody please enlighten me on what the half-time announcement yesterday was about? Thanks to the USELESS PA system in The Shed nobody around me could make out what was being said, so I'm none the wiser (and assume many others are also wondering).

The consensus around me was that it was something "exciting", but more than that I'm currently in the dark.

Me neither. I stand by the bend in the Shed and the sound is abysmal. The after match "quiz" was equally a muffled bass heavy mush. Nothing discernable. I even tried Shazam which didn't work. Kinda says it's not just my ears!

Absolutely mind numbing stupid decision to host Army v Navy at Kingsholm. How the hell are you going to fit 82,000 into 16,000? Just because a few nimbys called Tarquin and Josephine never realised that there was a big stadium at the end of the road, when they moved into their agreeable 4 bed within the commuter belt.

Hang on, scrap my last comment. I just looked at the Twitter feed and it was announced that Army v Navy will be held at Twickenham. So what was announced yesterday?

I do get the locals PoV regarding the attitude of the crowd for this match. Going a few years ago it was definitely more boozy than your typical England fixture. However it’s one day a year where the forces can let their hair down and enjoy themselves in the name of their force.

It’s one fixture a year and nothing like your average football game. The locals should put up with it. Or don’t live next to an 82,000 stadium

Still none the wise, then. Army v. Navy, or something else...?

Re. the PA in The Shed, I was just on the Worcester Street side of halfway, and nobody around me had a clue what the H/T announcement was about. Could make out there was an announcement being made, but it was just a garbled noise.

How many years have we complained about the lack of a decent PA system in The Shed (admittedly the acoustics of the structure make it difficult, but this is not a classified state secret)? Could somebody attending the Fans Forum on 13th Nov bring it up, please...?
