All the seats in the lower tier now out. I wonder if they might do a reprofile of the lower tier to make it bigger? Fulham is an example of that.

Are we already in the position of putting in the Champs League oversized hoardings without losing seats? Are they the same as the Conference ones?

Now that ST have been notified I'm a bit surprised the club hasn't announced exactly what they are planning.

I am not sure that all season tickets have been notified? I sit in Upper North T4, near the front. People not far from me have had letters, but others have not and right now we have no idea if our seats are still there next season.

They must have notified everyone, didnít they also follow up with emails. Maybe send them an email to double check?



I sent a Twitter DM to AVFCSupport this morning and have had a reply to say that my seat in LTR C4 is safe.

I've found that this method of communication is best these days

The North always feels cramped and creaking as it stands. I don't know if what you suggest is possible but I can't see how you can cram more into the infrastructure with regulations as they are today.

It all feels a bit 'back of an envelope'.

There's already zero legroom in the lower north, knees hitting the seat in front if you sit down . Think that's generally why everyone stands . Be ideal for those rail seats .

Do we have anyone here who's a ST holder in the areas being converted to rail standing ?

Are you being offered the chance to move to an area that's seated ?

There will be no rail standing in the North Stand. Upstairs will have the option of lower leg amputation.The peasants downstairs will be given a hacksaw and told to get on with it themselves.

So, on the new stand happening before we all die, you're saying there's a chance?!

I'd seriously complain if that was the case but you wouldnt have a leg to stand on.

I walked straight from ground level to my seat at Barcelona,  and i sat around the middle rows. Was very surprised how low the pitch was.

Happens to a small extent already at VP. Ground level on Trinity Road side comes in at bottom of middle tier. Must have levelled the pitch at an early stage.
There always used to be quite a camber on the villa park pitch noticeable when you sat at pitch/eye level and the players on the far side you could only see from waist up. I imagine they've levellled that off to snooker table standards now.


That was for drainage, like a crown green.

The easiest way to visalise the slope is if you think you enter the forecourt at the back of the Holte at ground level in trinity Road but have to go down a flight of stairs to get to Witton lane. They must have levelled the pitch when first built and so itís somewhat below trinity Road itself.

It was levelled a couple of seasons ago.

Sounds fair enough . Focus on the Orange Dot whilst sawing your legs off. UTV.
