Half the Pontoon?, open corners, Lower Youngs?

Understand from a previous thread it doesn't add much if anything to capacity so Pontoon end open corners would make most sense.

Not sure that those who currently sit in the half of the Pontoon and those in the Lower Youngs you want standing would say if they wanted to remain seated. Also the corners were demolished years ago.

It’s a pilot scheme for Premier League & Championship clubs only. And it wouldn’t add to capacity as every current seat = 1 rail seat = 1 standing position.

And I really don’t see the point in installing any at BP when it won’t increase revenue to help pay for pay for it. Maybe in a new stadium?

It wouldn't increase capacity at all but if there was demand for it, I guess the Pontoon seats could be used in the 3 open corners to increase capacity?

No idea if that's possible but that would look ace, an all standing Pontoon with the open corners then filled with the left over seats, especially with a roof joining the Main to the Pontoon (or at least closing the gap).

Good that this is happening, but disturbed that clubs taking part will be required to have a “Code of Conduct” for those in standing areas. As if football fans aren’t subject to some of the most restrictive laws in the country already, you now need another fcuking set of rules on top to make sure you’re all good boys and girls, simply because you’re standing rather than sitting?

Pathetic.

We already have standing (probably safe) waiting in the queue for the toilets at half-time.

The standing in the queue is safe but the toilets aren't.

Judging by the reaction, looks like just me and you think that is a good idea.

The solution for us is a new stadium with rail seating behind both goals. That would get my vote.

Blundell Park is beyond redevelopment, no matter what the romantics think.
