STANDING CONTINGENT APPEAL

This section of the board is an archive of topics from Walsall's recent history - e.g. Ray Graydon's sacking, the arrival and subsequent departure of Paul Merson. It also houses the tributes paid to Jolysaddler.

Is it right to stand up in the Tile Choice Lower Stand?

Poll ended at Sun Feb 17, 2013 9:20 pm

Yes, it doesn't matter how I effect other supporters I should be allowed to stand.

53%
No, its unfair to other paying ticket holders to have their view restricted or force them to stand.

Just goes to show the whole affair has been a storm in a teacup and no-one at the club takes any notice of fringe web sites.
Note that the attendance of our supporters was down - have the "non-standers who complain about standing" become stayaways?
Is a post on this thread going to be a standing arrangement after every home game?

no we was there today, seems the club have taken notice as the big piece in the programme. seems the club do take notice and will take further steps as they know the offenders


What was said in the programme.

theres no real offenders as it was evidnet to me today people were moving from other blocks to come to block 4 to make a stand and keep block 4 as it has been for as long as it has been seating.

i think the atmosphere today was fantastic for the most part, went a little off when the players were struggling (one of my pet hates)

the thing is when in block 4 you think it sounds good, I was (standing tut tut) in Block one and the sound rarely spread clearly over to here.

i understand where you are coming from, i was 5 minutes late and was asking myself if there was actually a game on as i approached the ground, it just tells you how bad the acoustics are in the bezla.

i personally would relish having the away, i think we could have a mean atmosphere when we wanted to really give it a go even with 20 singers.

Like I always say, it only ever really gets going when the upper starts up, and considering how empty that section has been for years, we have been fudge from the arse for so long.

The away end would be great, though I wouldn't be able to tan my cock when the sun is out

I suppose I'll see you in block 1 for Shrewsbury Josh. :lol:

barclays :lol:

when we played the game not long ago and the stewards gave us the choice to sit in the lower or upper i really wanted the singers to do a milwall and occupy the upper tier i really love it when you hear the upper just amplify any chant that has started downstairs.

i would go there on my ones if it meant we could have banter between the two tiers but i think i would have prawn sandwiches thrown in my direction :lol:

If the club take "action" for people standing then we are fudge aren't we! It's a football match not theatre.

Don't put it past them to do so.

Wonder if they were taking piccies to identify these asbo desperados? I sincerely hope not - and really hope that they've learnt a few things since "Freedom of Speech". Having talked to a couple of stewards at the back of the FTG lower, they seemed a bit nervous about the potential future stupidity of their bosses.

If people stopped going on about it on certain 'fringe' websites the club wouldn't take the blindest bit of notice.

So if you want to stand, stop going on about it!

12 pages and you still haven't grasped what the thread is all about.

Page one, about the fifth post, I grasped what it was on about and made constructive comment.

Still, don't let that stop you from posting your usual gibberish, this thread is only 12 pages long so I doubt you'd have grasped it at all yet. :wink:
