It doesn't bother me either way and I would probably only wave it when we've won and then take it home for one of the grandkids.

Yeah, I remember the QPR fans all had flags in 2014 and it looked great. 

Made us look like a big bunch of flesh coloured blobs.

Most important part of creating an atmosphere is showing the players on the pitch how much support they’ve got, a sea of flags does that. Once the game starts you can put your flag down and start making some noise. 

Important point is make sure they’re black AND white flags. Black flags don’t stand out and white flags make you look French. Need a bit of both.

It would be nice if they put flags out.... also a nice little memento for those of us who actually managed to get tickets to be there.... as the merchandise can be bought by anybody....

I don't mind either way really, but the fifty grand or so it would cost could probably be better spent elsewhere. Like on sausages at Moor Farm.

I took the missus against QPR - and she commented on how the QPR end looked a lot better - and I must admit...we did look like a thrown together bunch. Although they were plastic - and their whole club is!

 

needless to say....after QPR, she's not coming!! as she doesn't want to jinx it!!

 

So im a flag fan

 

so big plain W&B flags. - same sort Watford are waving please

I think they are back on the menu, it’s the only thing that would explain the performance at Elland Road on Wednesday night

Any idea how much it would have cost Dirty Leeds for all those scarves on Wednesday? Must admit it did look epic though... (despite those holding them the wrong way up!!)

Or part of the KKK.

Don't you start! 😂

I  remember tweeting a photo of those flags after we'd worked so hard to put them out and my twitter feed was inundated with hundreds of comments about the KKK from Forest supporters.

It's the one and only time I've ever had a tweet go crazy - it was horrible so I only post very mundane stuff on there now.

Flags a definite yes. The impact walking into Wembley and seeing the qpr end lit up was quite imposing and immediately had them on the front foot psychologically

I am a no. Makes it seem like its all about a day out - take a picnic, prawn sarnies etc. Nice to wave a flag but its the result that matters. I am sure that Leeds enjoyed holding their scarfs up on Wednesday, but would probably swap it for a win. I agree that it looks good, but it can bring on an arrogance, as if you have already won - a bit like Leeds, but then again we thought we were going to beat QPR, and we didn't have flags. Any phycologists out there?

Watford’s looked great , even when 6:0 down and it looked like it could get worse they gave their fans an opportunity to show their appreciation and keep on supporting their team.

( not that the same will happen to us of course ! )
