Chris Charles | 10:19 UK time, Wednesday, 4 November 2009

As you may have noticed, the Quotes of the Week format has been tweaked to incorporate it into this blog. The idea is that you add any decent quotes/chants/banners/announcements you may have seen or heard and the best ones will be highlighted in next week's.

Anyone who is not signed up to post on blogs can continue to use the old post-form email system for the next couple of weeks but after that we'll just be taking comments on the blog. So without further ado, here's Frank Lampard to kick us off....

    Re: Ken - (Pats at Buccs NFL Stanmore tube station announcer) - in the interests of journalistic best practice, yep, I must've been getting off the same train back from Wembley and can verify as a second source that superb platform announcement; kind of dry English wit you'd never get at a US stadium. Also great to see virtually all 32 NFL team replica shirts in the crowd, wearers enjoying great banter with each other and on the way home. The paradox is, there is a place for the 'who ate all the pies' lower-league experience as well as the Premier League teams/FA learning a thing or two from how to do the marketing circus that is the NFL, properly.

    #7--Agree on both counts. Best US stadium announcement I ever heard was the traditional one at University of Pittsburgh vs. West Virgina. "There's a tractor with its lights on, license plate..." Not so original (may have been used by every team that ever faced a rural rival) and not dry at all, but still funny... And NFL games may go one either twice as long or ten times as long as they should, and be filled with players making very questionable fashion choices, but it is a big, shiny media circus that's good at catching eyes.
