If they want a better atmosphere then lower the ticket prices dramatically for games like this, lower league cup opposition and the early champions league rounds.
I say this because speaking as an ST holder it doesn't half leave a sour taste in your mouth to be charged full wack for a game/competition the club itself is not taking seriously. If they want to charge full price then I expect the best possible team out, if they aren't and have no intention of putting that team out then lower the prices and allow less regular match goers to go, this = a generally more excitable person within the ground, a better atmosphere and from the club's point of view more people who have been and may well want to go again.
Being charged the same to watch the reserves lose to palace at home, or not look like they gave a shit against otelul galati as you are charged for Liverpool at home is annoying.
