I agree...

And so do I.

In which case we have to go back to our beloved owners for another round of guff dressed up as "progress".

Itís all deflection away from the real issue which is the redevelopment and especially that fooking awful east stand.
If itís about business case this make even less sense than finishing the east.
Most of the fans in the back of the north stand anyway, IMO a waste of money to put rail seating in.

In a nutshell..

I believe that for that one they only surveyed the season ticket holders who reside in the North Stand...
I'm a north stand season ticket holder and I wasn't mailshot by the club, and I do have a question...
If it's only safe to stand with a rail during the game, why is there no restriction and it currently considered safe to stand without a rail before the game, at halftime and afterwards as we leave?
My suggestion for anybody who wants 'safe' standing in the North and at no extra cost to the club, is they should get on the season ticket waiting list for North row J or pretty much any row immediately behind the goal.
Safe standing rails might have their place at larger stadia but not behind the goals at Sixfields.

The only realistic way to improve capacity and also to include standing is to put a 2nd tier on the Dave Bowen stand. Not sure if the rake of the terracing once the seats are removed would allow for this though?

Exactly, it is like buying a sofa for a room that has half a wall missing.

There isn't any doubt that this topic is a smokescreen to detract from the East Stand.

But in my opinion, this must be pushed and it's good that Tom Reed and others are leading the charge. The club asked North Stand season ticket holders their thoughts and we have voted unanimously in favour of safe standing. Choosing to ignore that would be a big two fingers up to the supporters.

Following on from a Freedom of Information request made to Northampton Borough Council, we will update supporters - as to the latest on the east stand and wider development at Sixfields - following our next Trust board meeting.

The Trust board also hopes to meet with Kelvin Thomas and other club officials next month.

If there's something to say then say it....if there isn't then don't bother......delay delay does you no favours.

After the announcement from the Trust I was expecting some kind of bombshell announcement........perhaps that is still to come.

And the Trust "hoping for a meeting" with the Chairman........sad times.......shows how little sway they have these days.
