    That sucks to be honest. I'd like to be in my usual seat but have to wait to see if the upper tiers open, and if they do, there is no guarantee I will still be able to get it.
    I think the "free for all" approach is the best one, as it allows people to bring along friends and family that might not be STHs and they can all sit together.

    If you do bide your time for an upper tier, there is every chance you will be able to get your own seat as 18,000 other Albion fans (at a guess) will have already picked up tickets in order for upper tiers to be opened.

      It really doesnít matter that much where you sit - just make sure youíre there and we get a good attendance and support the lads!

      But yes, I expect the upper tiers will open up.
      Seeing kids in the school or in the parks with Albion shirts instead of the big clubs and easy ones, thatís it. We have done it.

      Yes, I can see the advantage of this, as you state, and you could argue that it would be good for this to happen -who knows; the fan coming for the first time could be hooked for life as we all were at some stage. But there is an element or risk -if enough upper tierers wait, the club might decide on looking at the figures, that it is not worth opening up the rest of the stadium, as the lower tiers are not filled. Didn't happen last year against Coventry, admittedly, but who knows? Just such a shame that Russian Roulette is seemingly necessary.

      Yes, I am with you there -when the window for STHs opens up, I will choose another part of the ground and not be too bothered, but should I have to do this? And I feel for those who don't want to give up on their usual seat and have to watch anxiously for several days.

      It's one of 30 odd thousand identical padded seats next to a piece of grass, FOR ONE MATCH.

      Modern day worries eh.

      Iím looking forward to sitting elsewhere, I see it as a rare sortie away from my usual standpoint.

      Given my seat is the back row of the NS Iím confident no one will be SAT in it either.

      They should open them now like last time. Silly. But fun for us.

      If spend on an individual game drops like retail spend in shops over the past year then both upper tiers prob won't be needed. Or does watching Albion buck the trend ?
