You choose to sit or stand, everyone eyes are at the same height and offset seats help even more.  Then if we set up a section and people 100% didn't want to move then they can stay in the new 2020 seats!

Offset seats....be my luck to get behind conjoined twins....

You said that you couldn't hear yourself think and that you like to talk, suggesting that you prefer the atmosphere to be fairly quiet, no? 

I thought that fans who didn't go to actively support the team, rather preferring to sit down in the quiet, were better served in the West Stand. Traditionally the Kop is where the more vocal support stand surely? 

You are quite within your rights to interpret what I have said and come to an incorrect conclusion.

Just saw this at Shrewsbury's official site.  They are allocating an official singing section at their Replay in Liverpool. https://www.shrewsburytown.com/news/2020/february/ticket-news-for-liverpool-vs-shrewsbury-town-on-04-feb-20/

 

Wouldn't that be great if we did the same.......

The question has been asked a couple of times to no avail...

 

Might be time to ask again.

Could well be a brilliant time.

After the success of the Wigan tie, what better opportunity than a local derby against Coventry or Birmingham in the cup to try it out again?

This is going to be embarrassing assuming that both Coventry or Birmingham will take their full allocation. Its always really annoyed me that we, as a club, quite happily hand over the only vocal area of the ground (as far as away fans are concerned anyway as from L1 I've never once been able to hear SK1 and therefore there's no doubt the away fans can't either), and hand it over to the away fans, leaving everyone in that block to then be dotted around the rest of the stadium. It'll be 4500 noisy away fans in a stadium that's otherwise silent, like the Derby FA cup game a couple of years ago. 

 

This game would be a really good opportunity to try something different. Bear in mind that a midweek night game against not particularly attractive opponents means that there will be a lot of family end season ticket holders not taking their seats. 

 

Option 1: instead of hand over L1 and some K to away fans, give the family end to the away fans instead, like we've done before with West brom in the league Cup a few years ago. Therefore, reducing the number of people forced to move, as L1 and K won't be affected, and many of those in the family end wouldn't be going anyway. Some of the normal away corner can be sold to home fans, therefore potentially extending L1 into a larger singing section (potentially Union fs could relocate there for 1 game).

 

Option 2: even better, give the opposition the normal away end, and then for one game make the family end the designated singing section, like the Wigan game should have been (before the club messed up by not announcing it and then subsequently selling tickets there to people not knowing about it). Again, union fs could relocate there for 1 game, as could those in L and K.
