Agreed … but for plebs like me who used the Hillary Street entrance, anything to do with the main stand was effectively out of bounds. I always favoured the behind-the-goal position anyway, so was very happy spending half the game behind that goal and the other half at the Laundry End. That was, of course, before the days of restricted access to the terracing opposite the main stand!!
Thinking about it, the only time I was ever tempted to use that “side-on” viewpoint was when it was tipping down with rain … and even then it wasn’t always tempting - I remember being the only occupant at the Laundry End on a Saturday afternoon when we won 8-0 against Southport, soaked to the skin but very happy - but that’s another story.
