If safe standing came in, It would probably be a couple of bloke in the lower holmesdale.

I didn't hear it myself but Parish mentioned it yesterday on an interview with talksport I believe

"We want to keep that atmosphere that we have at Selhurst Park and we are going to present to the council next week and try to get everyone on side before we announce to the fans.

"We get letters asking us how to get a great atmosphere, and for me, you have to allow fans to stand.

"I know it is a delicate subject for people, but the types of stands have moved on and I think it would be fantastic for fans up and down the country to be able to stand in some sections.

"For us, we want to maintain that vibrant atmosphere that we have at Selhurst Park, but if we could get to 38,000 or 40,000 in a gradual scheme, and enhance the corporate side as well, that would be great."

Indeed, it will never be in the new corporate stand.

 


It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

There is no threat whatsoever to Millwall's ground, just redevelopment of land that belongs to the council in any case. And Dartford already has a football club thanks.

Where it's mostly standing & the facilities are decent

Still smirk at the need for fans to still change ends each half after all these years though.

I seem to recall that SP was one of several chairmen/owners who had put forward a suggestion re 'safe standing' areas to the FA. The inference was that, possibly, the Whitehorse end would be converted to standing & the away fans moved to t'other end of the AW.

Current rules are based on a couple of tragic incidents that occurred when football stadiums were constructed quite differently.

Having been to a few European matches it's clear that in places like Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Juventus, Fiorentina & Milan that the clubs allow certain sections to stand despite them being 'seated only' and despite the local regs - much the same as Block B. I guess clubs could simply carry on with that if they want to.

It will of course be the Lower Holmesdale and I'm sure SP would do his homework on how many Season tickets would sell and act accordingly on how many blocks would be set out as Safe Standing.With the campaign for these areas steadily growing and our Chairman wanting to retain the best atmosphere in the EPL once Selhurst has been developed its a no-brainer really. Football grounds have moved on since the Taylor Report as have 99% of supporters especially in this country so I think it can only be a positive for the club.

The obvious solution is part standing . Probably at lower levels. The Holmesdale would be the obvious. Maybe Whitehorse if they move away fans there as has been suggested. The main stand and the Arthur all seated.

The old days of the massive terraces were fun but could get scary. They were too big. If you just had it down the front would be safer.

I'd buy one in a standing area and so would many of my pals.
I don't enjoy sitting down at a game which is why i prefer 'away-days' where standing is pretty much the norm.
I really hope 'the powers that be' take the blinkers off and allow Safe Standing areas to be constructed.

Like the AW used to be?

Or women. Sometimes women like to come to football these days too.

The current situation is that all PL and Championship
stadiums have to be all-seater.
Celtic have so called "Safe standing" at their ground.

The new barriers for Safe Standing have seats in them...so it gets around that

The whole outcome will be determined by the HSE and what they determine as safe surely? I'm pretty sure the Insurance Companies will use their guidelines to sign off stadium certification.If we have any experts that know better I would love to hear from them as it is going to be when not if with Safe Standing.Once you have clubs setting a precedent at their ground the scales tip in my opinion and with Celtic being so close to home relatively speaking I'm thinking it may happen at Selhurst indepentenly of the ground redevelopment maybe even before the start of next season??
