If the standing section stopped coming into the JG stand, the place really would become a library. I quite enjoy the atmosphere that they contribute!

They stand at the back, what harm are they really doing?
Dondog...Its because in the standing areas you get a really shit view as no elevation whereas in the seats you do get a better view of the pitch.

Dondog - it doesn't help that one standing section is beyond shit

While it's not so unusual for people not going so often, does seem like there's a few high(er) profile types who are absent ATM
In a ground where only 2 sides are seated, why would someone want to go in the john green and stand? You wouldn’t find people booking a ticket for the tempest end and trying to sit on the terrace all match would you

Kyle... I mentioned to Rob on Saturday I hadn't seen you at a home game for a while and he just said he thought he had read you were only doing away games.

Russ that seems to have been answered in a few places that the stewards are enforcing because the club can get into shit over it. But there are strong views on both sides about it so the answer has been drowned out (it seems). I get Diddy’s point and agree but I think they’re not allowed to all just move to the back and stand so there isn’t an obvious solution.

Yes it does piss me off when I have paid for a seat and the people in front decide they want to stand for the whole game. I have and will tell them to sit down. If you want to stand throughout the game then go to the top so you aint a selfish bastard.

A lot of people stand at games I guess, but if the people behind aren't standing, then it becomes a bit different. It's difficult to convey the context on here but maybe someone was being inconvenienced and the stewards are just trying to make it a bearable situation for everyone as best they can.

I'm sure 99% of stewards just want an easy shift without confronting people about such minor shit
Chiggers... You get that every ground now in some form. I once had a steward stand directly in front of me whilst I was in a standing section at away game. Now he had a stool to sit down on and thought he would when the game started. But he didn't and I asked him politely if he would move as he was blocking my view and he just ignored me which pissed me off and so I dropped my drink by accident of course and then other Wombles joined in saying we had paid to see a game and not his fu$king big head. Seemed to do the job and he sat down.

Chiggers... As far as I know people in seats always stand up when your team attacks the goal and then sit down. very PETTY about telling someone to go sit down during half time. Never seen that before.

On Saturday when the player was down injured a mate came over to speak to us during the break. A steward approached and asked him to go back to his seat.

We're not at school
Diddy, It's not rules are rules etc We have a corner and we stand up, we are told to sit down. We attack our goal, we stand up. We get told to sit down. It's a game of football, it's not a west end show, it's not the opera. Common sense needs to be used and the club and stewards are not using much at the moment.

Chiggers.... Afraid that's what happens as we keep going up the leagues. The rules get tighter and the club have to abide by them and follow them. The standing in the seats bit is at every ground unless you get more then a 100 standing up and then everyone ignores the stewards anyway.

Diddy, it's not just about the ground. We're treated like customers now. The whole experience is a joke. Picture this, we're 3-2 down with 10 mins ago and we have a throw in. Attacking the away teams goal, 3 people stand up in the JG and try to start a song, to get the atmosphere going. A steward approaches you (not for the 1st time) and asks 'can you sit down please'

Constantly being asked to get behind the lads by the club, this contradicts what the stewards are asking.
Chiggers... You are right KM is a poor ground especially for viewing a game and having to go to the bog etc. But it has served its purpose and we do have a NPL to look forward to. I personally prefer the away games as at most grounds you get better food and get to see the game as you can see the whole pitch. And not forgetting its the excitement of being out numbered by 10 to 1.

I don't blame anyone who stops going to home games. The match day experience is so bad.

Kyle... Someone said to me on Saturday that you don't do the home games anymore? Is that true as swear I have seen you in the distance.
