    Come on lads, we're defending Champions for the first time in 30 years.

    If we can't keep it light today when can we?

    The thing is that it's not the same for everyone. You have grounds/fans like ours who can help our team whilst hindering the opposition, and then you have teams such as Arsenal whose atmosphere can get very toxic very quickly, or even Man City with their complete lack of atmosphere at times.

    Obviously the support a team gets from those in the ground and the atmosphere they create is not the most important thing when it comes to how the team generally performs, but it does make a difference, and in sport (as with many other aspects of life) the difference between winning and losing often comes down fine margins, and thus marginal gains such as the support a team gets can be critical.

    Yes it is but players on the whole whatever sport will want to play in front of 30-70k it gets the juices going.

    I know they cant do that and have to get on with it how it is but imo it is abit shit and most people I have spoke to agree, but as we get sucked into the game we watch it regardless.

    Lets just hope we get the win later.

    We should be good enough to win most of our home games, empty stadium or not. I'd be more concerned if we lost our front three, Van Dijk or Alisson for any length of time more than any missing fans.

    Football without fans is wank, the fake crowd noise makes it worse imo on tv.

    Most people would agree with that, but that's very different to saying that a lack of fans has no impact whatsoever, as it obviously does.

    Only on tv. In the darts they have the crowd noise in the arena as well.
