Elite sport is about marginal gains anywhere you can find them. The difference between us and Fulham is a few 0.1% here and there, on and off the pitch. It's why improvement can be tough and it's why Heck will be able to say he's done a good job. As the business will be turning over 300m next season.
Not on the pitch. The difference is a lot more than 0.1%
As for 900 ST holders moving for new middle class fans from Barnt Green / Claverdon / Dorridge etc , there were easier ways to make such a tiny gain rather than piss all over the loyal fans . It's a wanky move and Heck and the owners can go fuck themselves on this one , and Terrace View butchering the Holte.

As an aside from me agreeing with everything you said, have you had a letter Tim?

Not yet, i think we may be safe for now, but regardless of that the principles of what they are doing to others are really piss poor . Absolutely livid .

I don't think you can read . Your grammar is also poor .
I said there are better ways to achieve such marginal gains without shitting in your own bed .

I'd probably not press the space bar before a full stop if I was accusing somebody else's grammar of being poor.

Probably best to learn where a full stop goes before crying about an errant apostrophe Coops.

There's lots of things they've done and will do. One day 7000 will be moved out of their seats. This measure is one of them. Probably easier to annoy 900 than 30,000 with a higher than 5% increase.

If People are ok with what Heck is doing that's up to them . Good luck to you and your marginal gain consent . As for my view , Heck can go fuck himself on this one  .

It doesn't matter what we think. I'm happy where my club is now. I'm going to watch Champions League football next season. The cost of that is 5% more on my ticket, I can't spread out on the lower deck of the Upper Holte anymore and for me that's it. For others it's being uprooted, being denied their usual drinking spot. If that was the price, I'd have paid it years ago personally.

I get that people are upset.  I would be too if I lost my seat.  But what do people expect?  We all want to compete and progress, how did people think this would happen?

If wed built the North, a few thousand would have had to move.  Possibly more as it included revamping the Trinity offer too.

If we moved stadium everyone would have to move.

Yes, its disappointing for those moving and yes as a wider issue the modern game stinks.  But I saw more happier faces at the Villa this season than Ive seen for a long time.  Is the club doing this pretty modest reconfiguration really too much of a price to pay?

The atmosphere at Villa Park has been non-existent for a lot of the season. It will continue as the ground is gentrified . Enjoy it .

As a loyal supporter/customer of 40+ years I expect better than like it or lump it.
