Seems i underestimated the amount of selfish people around. If you all want to stand in a stand where everyone else does then go nuts I couldn't give a shit.

If by standing you are forcing someone that physically can't to stand and you don't care because "that's where we stand" or it's better when we stand"

Then you are an arsehole. (y)

There’s no way stewards are going to be able to make everyone sit down in the south stand. I’m midway into a block and the stewards simply can’t get to us to tell us to sit down. It will have to be self policing if it’s going to work. The seats are so crammed in in the south stand I’m not sure we can sit comfortably anyway.

Middle lower block of the North stand will be empty if they enforce a ban based on last night...
Hilarious watching one old fuddy duddy going up and down the stairs complaining to the stewards, who did nothing about it.

Yeah there seems to be view that unless you are in the West Stand ( and therefore deemed to be posh) then you should just expect and be happy for people to stand the whole game.

First and foremost, the fact is until safe standing become allowed then stadiums are all seater. That hasn’t changed whether people like it or not or agree or disagree with the reasonings behind it.

I also think there is also an almost revisionist theory that back before Hillsborough in the “good old days” everybody other than the West Stand stood. Which is bollocks.

We have the huge South Stand now where it’s implied you can stand and that is one of the reasons I didn’t get a ST there. If you’re so adamant you need to stand then get a ticket there. If you couldn’t ( or didn’t want to for other reasons ) then yeah I agree, stop being so selfish in thinking that everybody else doesn’t share your views and is a lesser fan and should just put up with it or piss off.
