    Moving the away fans


    1 Not allowed!
    I wonder if the club has ever thought of doing this? Would much rather have Albion fans behind both goals. I always think its more incentive for away team to score when attacking their fans end. I would like to see them moved to ESL. Most recently villa and wolves have done the same thing

      I think Bournemouth also do that, and they've had 2 great PL campaigns.

      Been mentioned many times. The Amex has been designed and built to house away fans in that end and it would require costly structural changes to alter this. Having said that, if it was worth even 1 point during the campaign, these costs endured could be worth it in the end.

      Blimey NSC is like a Greatest Hits package.

      - Slag off players
      - Slag off fans
      - Slag off queues
      - Slag off stadium
      - Slag off Barber (must be here somewhere)
      - Slag off everybody but your own stupid self.

      Cracking effort from all concerned.

      Strategy of the club: blind the opposition fans = less violent as they can't see shit, and can't ramp up an atmosphere because they can't see shit.
      Barber is a genius.

      I'm also ESL but if moving the away fans here further improved our performances and the atmosphere I would have no objection to being relocated.

      A move would have the away fans adjacent to the north which would add a lot of spice to the atmosphere. The family stand could be moved to the south and have it located in one place rather than the current oddiity of 2 and a half blocks in the ESL, a 2 and a half block gap followed by one more block of family stand and then the shelf being family in a completely different part of the ground.

      Also, behind the goal are the cheapest tickets and the family tickets are also the lowest priced ones.

      There is also a natural divide where the vehicle access point in the NE corner for segregation.

      The club could make a fortune by offering a few premium seats to away fans where the exisiting 1901 ESL seats are and those in those seats could be relocoated to the 'converted' shelf that is currently the family area.
      Don't take offence. I'm normally ruder than this.
