Premier League and Championship clubs will be allowed to introduce safe standing areas from the start of the 2022-23 season.

I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

It’s Too late for Blundell park although it would be nice in a new stadium .
It’s a shame we knocked out standing corners down and repaired them with nothing

excrement idea and by the looks on their faces a excrement reality too.
If anyone thinks for half a second that this compares with a good old fashioned terrace where you can mingle with your mates then you're deluded.
It's simply seating without the seats.

You stood in safe standing?

Agreed it’s not just a big concreted space but the times I’ve stood on it it’s decent…anything is better than flipping plastic seats…

Not as good as proper terracing but definitely an improvement for those who prefer to stand, at least it gives them the option.

I wonder if this means we will finally be freed from our requirement to be all seater due to being in the championship when it was introduced? Or will we only be able to change to rail seats rather than proper terracing?

Hamburg has it (like scuntland will know) and it is awful.

Yeah it could be a good thing if only for the reason that it eradicates the potential for people who want to sit arguing with people in front of them that want to stand.

It's very expensive and doesn't increase capacity. Does it still have to have a seat in it, or can we just build a good old fashioned terrace with rails to keep the costs down?

We were made to have all seating a couple of decades ago because of the league we were in, we are no longer in that league,
would we be allowed to  build standing areas in the corners of BP now?  Doubt it,but It would certainly help  with capacity problems & plenty of other league 2 clubs have standing areas so  seems a bit  unfair if we can't.

It is awful, once was enough for me.
To put it in context a season ticket on that stand when last I heard was €150 but with a hell of a waiting list mind.
