Don't Panic I see Wolves are now installing Rail seating, believe Spurs have it in their new stadium, what chances of us bringing it in for the South stand as an experiment?

Bugger all, the rake of the stadium is supposedly not compatible without some fairly heavy duty renovation iirc. The club is supposedly open to the idea in principle, but I think it would have to be part of an expansion works.

This is no longer a problem according to Jon Darch.

If anything we are better suited than most due to the very generous leg-room we offer.

Depending on the continued and future success of Club 1871, something will have to happen to accommodate the fans imho. Whilst assuming that we do well on the pitch I can only imagine that the demand will go past the small capacity at the moment so at that time what would be a solution? Safe standing? Moving the away fans?

Amusing to talk about the possible / probable need to expand space for C1871 given how vocal a few people were that it was a complete failure and needed to be stopped before Xmas and would not continue next season. :lol:

True but it’s not genuine debate at this point, just my perhaps premature hypothetical ramblings. I honestly think Club 1871 is finely balanced and it’s existence is fragile at the moment. It’s very early and much of its success is down to our improved form under Jose. We need a solid period of steady footballing stabilisation and most importantly, a consistently improved home form. The quicker something is to grow the easier it is to collapse and if we are absolute toilet week in week out then attendances will likely drop and Club 1871 will too, be depleted. It will be interesting to see the uptake in season tickets sold there. But agree, a far cry from the inevitable colossal failure a few (cough OMA) were adamant it would be.

I'd have thought it would depend pretty heavily on whether the intention was to retain the same capacity, but just stood up, or to increase the capacity.
