How many of them don't you understand?

Cable-tie their seats up, that'll stop them from standing.

Oh wait.

The sanitisation of football... :(

If I have bought a season ticket I surely reserve the right to stand on it, eat my lunch of it and if need be twirl it around my head and launch it at the consistently lazy full back...where did it all go wrong :viking:

Freedom of choice, having fun etc seem to have dissipated and it's all about the $ and control. How thoroughly depressing.

I guess you are really just renting the seat? All rentals have agreements, no pets, no standing etc........

According to that Indie piece, that makes 10 out of 20 Prem clubs apparently in favour or positively disposed to some extent. Only a matter of time, I reckon, before at least trials will take place.

Could still go wrong, though. If crowd movement towards hotspots becomes an issue, it'll be chucked out again. Need to be sensible about which areas of the ground get to do it. Areas where fans of opposing sides are close together are probably out. 'Safe' home ends ought to be doable, though. Making the Kop safe standing wouldn't present any problem.

Both of At Stockholms new Stadiums have safe standing areas behind the goals, obviously they can only be used for league games, seats are installed for international games, but when home fans where polled before the new national stadium, and new Stockholm Stadium where built a returns to terracing was the 1 one wish. The Swedish FA, clubs and city listened.

Germany has had a similar system for years.

English clubs and The FA need to catch the fuck up. It's 2013, not 1989.

The setup being pushed by the FSF are the rail seats whereby they fold into the barrier and therefore don't require any changeover.

A definite improvement, but I don't think it will bring about a massive change in atmosphere unless they makes areas unreserved so groups can gather without having to organise it months in advance.

Aye, but given the level of standing on the kop anyway, I'd take a 1 seat = 1 standing spot with barriers in between as a sign of progress - the less organised increased capacity when in standing mode can follow later on really, once they're happy its safe (I believe its roughly 2:1 isn't it in terms of capacity? ie 2 rows of standing for each barrier).

Better news as the return to standing is gathering ever more pace.

they're trying to get a terrace drawn into the plans for York's new stadium. it seems that the FSIF (football stadia improvement fund) will only provide a grant [of £4m out of the £19m cost] if the new ground is all seater, but as York are struggling to get this grant in time they're now looking at ways to get a greater capacity within the devised structure for less money and obviously the fans want terracing too.

increasing doubt, decreasing hope, even my imaginary friend went and changed his mind.
