Had an email from the club this morning inviting me to a consultation meeting on 12 Feb.
The subject being, the possible relocation of ST holders from the upper tiers to the lower, thus, they think, producing a better atmosphere.
Everyone with a ST up top will have had the same email, so I'd be interested to hear any views. I know I wouldn't be happy.

I know you won't like it Boncey but they are going to try and close the upper tiers for next season in league 2 and it does make sense to me. Seems daft to keep it open and pay for extra stewards and other staff up there when there will be even less there next season.

I know you sit in the WSU and always have done but i think it's inevitable that they will close it, Hopefully if and when we get out of league 2 then they can reopen it, but as a person who has always had the same seat in the ESL. you have my sympathy mate

The thing is Norpig, where would my seat be? I'm sure ST holders in the lower tiers have chosen their seats in order to get the best view possible, and they're not going to be giving them up. That would leave the immigrants from the top tiers getting what's left.
If they do close the top tiers I wouldn't buy a ST. I'd buy on a match by match basis and do a tour of the lower tiers.

I thought you'd be happy, you and stairs don't seem to get on.

 I'm not sure there will be a big rush to get ST's in any part of the ground next season to be honest.

I know at the start of the season they closed the top tiers and the atmosphere was better, not sure what the crowd numbers were but i would think it would be equivalent to what we would get next season.

I may give up my Sons ST as he never goes so you can come and sit next to me in the ESL. It's a great seat just outside the 18 yard box and just far enough away from knobhead corner.

I can see the ball from the upper tier. Found it hard to see if the ball was out on the far side when I was sitting down below. To be fair, I've got the perfect view from the upper, so you can understand I'm a bit miffed.

That might have been funny if you hadn't already sent me £1000 by Paypal requesting the seat next to me.

Not really fair for me to judge because i have a seat in WSL, However i agree with Norpig it makes sense financially at this point, if they had offered this or we go bust in the summer we would have snapped there hands off.

 I used to sit in the North Upper and looking down it is a different perspective but i swapped to my current seat once the kids went to university. And i wouldn't go back upstairs, The match early this year with everyone downstairs was superb and a better experience.

End of the day it's just a seat and you soon get settled somewhere else, although i accept that most of the best seats have gone so that's an issue, Sometimes you have to take one for the team this is your moment Bonce.

I don't think having a consultation with upper tier ST holders is going to affect their decision. I think they've made their minds up, and are trying to look inclusive.
As I said previously, I won't buy a ST next season, I'll buy match by match. Might be fun watching each game from a different position.

Still be sat in the lower tier, why pay more? our grumpy old man rate is the best price.

Was just thinking about the upper tiers, could they close say the west and north upper and leave the east upper open and move anyone to there? Would everyone fit in one stand? Looking at the west and north upper when i go to games it isn't packed but i can't see how many are in the east upper.

Boncey would you do that if that was an option? I know you are in the west upper but it would at least still be an upper tier.
