    Sad really that some people can't switch off from work.
    My temporary message on my phone may as well say " f*** off I'm watching football, ring me about work on Monday "
    Or talking to their pretend 'stockbroker'.

      I've sat in the west upper a few times, the view is great. But I still have a good view from the furthest back/center of the North and the atmosphere is so much better. Always regret it when I swap seats for a game. I could get a good view at home watching sky, football is all about being with like minded people and feeling the passion. Move seats, that's my advice.

      Did a similar thing. The NS is amazing and you still get a great view of everything.

      My understanding is the OP is having a pop at 1901 and not the East Lower in general. (Feel free to correct me)

      I'm a sort of anti corporate, football for the working classes ex Goldstone boy and the East Lower has been my seat of choice since day one. I have STOOD in the North and it hasn't given me any reason to move seats.

      I don't understand East Stand 1901. Is it a bit Bowie Extras episode? The same seat ?

      1901 are "corporate seats" and as with every other sporting event (not just football) are largely the preserve of those expensed up on a company jolly with clients or the ones being jollied. Being a fan of the sport in question is rarely a requirement and being a fan of either team is just a statistical anomaly.


      Occasionally I am amongst those being jollied and I give up my seats in SWC for 1901 and regret it every time. The view from the elevated position at the half way line does vastly out-shine that of our front-row, obscured-by-everything-from-the-man-from-sky-to-the-corner-flag seats, but I would not hesitate in saying the better match day experience is to be had slumming it in the "cheap seats".


      You can keep your beer in a real glass, short queues and free programmes and we'll just sit in the rain, stand in the cold concrete concourses with our floppy plastic glasses and sing our hearts out with the other fans (and occasionally hear gems like "Daddy, do they get paid more if it's raining").


      Don't envy you mate. See out the 5 year contract and then treat your "last years" to a more enjoyable experience for all 3 generations!
      Each to his own of course and I'm not too sure how 1901 differs from hospitality (apart from the lunch set up). I've done hospitality at several of the bigger clubs, always as a neutral and generally enjoyed it. But v Newcastle I was in hospitality in the East and had a pretty miserable time. Sanitised environment, far too much patronising (or OTT) service, having to 'dress up' (gawd knows why when I can buy a first class ticket on BA and wear what I like) and then sitting in the middle of a group who showed very little interest in what was going on. If ever offered I wouldn't do it again
