If we had all followed “the rules” and kept seated until they put safe standing in place, all stadiums would have stayed all seated forever. It’s the fact that persistent standing has remained up and down the country for 30 years that the government is finally addressing the issue and giving the go ahead to install safe standing that will allow stadiums to cater for both types of supporters. Until it’s fully rolled out there’s going to have to be a bit flexibility between supporters. Behind the goal expect to stand for large parts of the game but if everyone around you is sitting, don’t be a tool and remain standing. Away games majority will stand throughout but if you want to sit I’m sure you could swap with someone down the front if no empty seats.

Like another poster said,I also used to stand on the old kop and dont mind standing but at the end of the day they are now seats. I'm very aware of an elderly couple directly behind me who remain seated throughout and no doubt have their view obstructed if I stand. Dilemma to be honest. I could stay seated and bob and weave my way through the match knowing I'm not restricting their view or sod it and stand up so I can see the game I've paid for. All this due to one guy. And yes he knows what we think but he's really not arsed.
If he was told from the off by a steward either sit or be ejected then the issue is sorted. Seems petty reading it back but its a situation which could be easily avoided.
Why the hell should anyone have to put up with that? Report him to a steward, or when the idiots in blue jackets have finished checking ladies' handbags and the bottle top situation, maybe they could actually do something useful and deal with the situation, without looking for a punch up.

I often wonder if the armed forces have ever considered using plastic bottle caps as a cheap and effective form of ammunition. They're clearly quite lethal.

Unfortunately all the kids who can't drink turn up at the games an hour before kick off and stand wherever is closest to the other team's fans, from that point it's a free for all and if you don't stand you'll struggle to see. I learned (was on the receiving end) last season that if you kick up enough of a fuss and bring security over, you can get your allocated seats or somewhere close.

Why would you do that?? Proper jobsworth behaviour.

Its not though is it to be fair. Season tickets ain't cheap. If you have purchased a seat you should be able to use it. No question. I get that its an unwriten rule that the area mentioned is basically standing but nonetheless you are still entitled to use the seat you purchased. It's not a free for all like away games

Sorry, I presumed we were talking about away games. Season ticket seats are yours.
