I was there at at DC and, yeah, you're right, but I feel that the atmosphere wasn't helped by the fans not getting clap banners and thunderstick things like in previous ties indoor ties (at Braehead and in Liverpool). If that happened then there would have been much more noise.
Dont want to upset anyone from Bolton but I do agree with you about the clap banners etc also there was a distinct lack of flags around the arena until the Sunday only Union jacks on friday was the Stirling crowd and a few small ones from fans (including ours) dotted around. I was very disappointed in the atmosphere over all especially on the Friday. Still we won thats the important thing.
Not sure I agree that there is more enthusiasm when Andy plays either, and not sure there should be. They all play for their country and should get the support!
