    Yes, I know most people hate it but:-

    Just watching Arsenal v Man City and was wondering about the piped crowd noise. Is this played over the speakers in the ground so the players experience it or is it only for the home viewer/listener??

    Yes I’m bored….

    just on the tv i think, because on umpteen channel sky you can also watch with just the ground noise.

    Cheers! Not having played any team sports of any note I’m not sure if this makes a difference to an individuals performance or not.

    Useless fact:

    The people who are responsible for putting the crowd noise on are the people who do it for the FIFA PlayStation game. Which I suppose makes perfect sense.

    Must be an ‘in demand’ job in these current times!

    I think it can. A crowd / atmosphere creates a buzz, which creates momentum and much of sport is about momentum. A bowler running in having taken a couple of quick wickets, with a crowd roaring him on – look at Willis Headingly 81,, Flintoff Ashes 95, etc. Liverpool fans behind them the night they turned Barcelona over. The buzz of a Millenium Stadium welsh rugby crowd….

    Conversely – often a player or a team can wither under crowd pressure. So Barcelona above just became a bag of nerves, but equally if you’re that player that the crowd moan at every time you miss a pass or lose a tackle……not having that pressure may be an advantage instead.

    That makes sense. Personally, as a life long introvert, i’ve hated the presence of crowds!

    I read a newspaper column somewhere that says the crowd noise is piped in so we don’t hear the players swearing.

    The players swearing is still clearly audible over the added crowd noise

    In the last United game Pogba played a beautifully weighted, long cross-field ball over to Greenwood, who’s first touch wasn’t great and it went out. You could hear, loud and clear, someone on the bench shout ‘OH FOR ****S SAKE MASON!!!’ 😂
